Soon enough I'll ask the husband to take me to the spa nearby. I really need a full-body massage. It's been a long time wish to visit the spa but because of busy schedules, we just can't make it. Anyway, aside from massage, I'd also like to have my hair done, been decades since my last cut. I just love going to spa, if only I could go there more often. The place is so relax, the ambiance so warm with beautiful oriental decorations like those Singing Bowls, lanterns, etc. It's really a place to relax and not to mention, very conducive for sleeping. LOL!

I am fascinated with fruit cakes and planning to make one for the office this coming Tuesday not tomorrow. Love the look of the layered fruits. Got the idea from a virtual friend in social network site after saw her creations i promised to try it for myself too because it is indeed a very impressive work of art to do! Will see how i pulled mine on Tuesday will share you photos here.
Inspired by Korean menu Kalbi-tang or in English beef ribs soup with rice noodles. It was so good even it is just simple and basic soup yet the flavor is so deep and very refreshing specially in a cold days meal. Not to mention soup is always good for regaining energy back when you feeling tired you know. The husband wasn't feeling very good so i make sure he well taking care of :-). He loves it and we all enjoy it!

Being a mom is the most important thing in the world to me but that doesn’t mean I don’t care about my job. I actually work for a small law firm here in town and though that seems low key it’s really been a labor of love. I had to go back to school for 6 months to get licensed to handle the stuff I handle and I’ve been tasked with doing a lot more around there than my job title originally called for. I’ve been looking into small business internet solutions and having everyone new business cards printed and even been talking to interns about coming in next semester – there’s pretty much nothing around there that I don’t have my hands in. I love my job and the opportunity it gives me to get outside myself and not stress so much about what’s going on at home – I need a way to disconnect otherwise I just get consumed with being a mom and a wife and a housekeeper and that’s surely no way to live!
One of the dish that i learned when i came here in the US the pork chops with mushrooms gravy. Inspired by the better half's version he loves this kind of food with matching mash potatoes on the side and steam veges. At first he gave me the idea and later on he thought mine is a lot better and yummy than his, lol. Since i enjoy experimenting and adding stuff on my cooking my version is simply tasty and creamy.
Thanks for the guest post by Rob L.
I was just doing my daily thing online when I stumbled upon a website that seems too good to be true. For an online shopper hunting for the best deals in most affordable prices, nomorerack scam might be the first thing to enter our minds because what they have in their website is indeed too good to be true. So I dig deeper and read about nomorerack reviews. Accordingly, nomorerack is a top choice for shoppers looking for the latest and coolest items in the world wide web. From accessories, to gadgets and apparels. But here's the twist. They also have the biggest possible discounts you can think of! Insanity deals are what they are called, items like samsung galaxy tab with a price around 400 bucks now down to just 18$! Am all smiles when I saw their EOS rebel SLR camera now available for only 20 bucks! Can you believe that? But how can such offers be possible and true? Here's how it works actually. Nomorerack has a team that constantly searches for the hottest deals, manufacturer closeouts, overrun and overstock products, cancelled orders from different sources. All products are authentic and in great quality are then passed to customers and since it's straight from the factories, the savings are bigger and better! But their deals are available only for one day or until somebody else grabs it already. So if ever you found something you really like, you gotta be fast and put it to cart. The shipping fee is reasonable too, 2$ for every item but as of now they don't ship internationally though. Sounds cool isn't it? But we can't blame ourselves if we are to become skeptical about it. The best thing to do is be wise and consider everything before buying. And the best way to find out if it's true is to try it first hand. Anyway, is there somebody out there who already tried it? It pays to know feedback and be sure rather than sorry. If not, you can drop them a visit and see for yourselves. They could be aplace where we can find amazing stuff that won't hurt our pockets.
I honestly so proud of my cakes specially my specialty the super moist chocolate cake! Every body who grabbed a bite nor slice totally liked it! This is recently i baked and share it to the husband's colleagues. I got a lot of compliments how good it is the cake is so moist and the frosting just perfectly creamy, lol! I am glad that they enjoy every bit of it because i love making stuff for the others. Anyway, I agree that I've made the best cake ever! All i want is to bake more and make more designs and flavors and who knows i could make some money out of it right? ( i accept orders) haha. Everyone loves cake well who doesn't? sure this is a guilty pleasure but it's good! Just make sure to drink some tea after you eat desserts, wink!
One of housemates favorite is fried chicken and so do I! It's my number one to list of favorite food of all times. Well who doesn't pretty much sure fried chicken is typically famous. There's plenty of variety on how to cook it some they cook it in slow cooking in soft batter meanwhile mostly they love the traditional way the crispy deep fried which what i want the best. The same as i cook mine. I simply add other spices to add flavor and very tasty. Try it!
Baking is a fun activity but at the same time it could be a little stressful since everything has to be exact. The difference it has compared to cooking is that you can’t just estimate the amount of ingredients needed. One wrong move in measuring could lead into a food disaster. But the reward of finally seeing the fruit of your labor makes it truly worth it.
So if you are planning to learn a thing or two about baking or have tried it for the first time remember that it will take practice to make it practice. There’ll be problems along the way; learn from these mistakes and use them as a tool for the next baking experience. Below are also some of the usual baking dilemmas that a fist time baker might encounter along with tips on how to fix them.
The cake is hard to remove from the pan. This problem could be because of the lack of enough oil. Remember to grease the pan with a little amount of oil so that the cake won’t stick when you have to remove it. Another reason is timing. Let the cake cool down for about five minutes before removing it from the pan. Make sure to use a wire rack to make cooling down an easier process.
Another common problem involves the texture of the cake. The perfect one would have been soft and smooth as if it melts in your mouth. A cake with a coarse texture could be the result of having too much baking soda in the batter mixture. This is why it is very important to follow the recipe and make sure that all ingredients are well mixed.
Another thing that could affect the outcome of your cakes is the quality of ingredients. Make sure to use only the fresh ones and throw away those that are already past expiration date or hasn’t been used for a long time.
