Thankful for my day off today since everyone are celebrating "Thanksgiving day". Had a chance to slept in and play with kids in the bed. Meanwhile, we get up and thought of having some homemade donuts for breakfast! So i did made ourselves some yummy and hot fresh Thai donuts that I've learned from the restaurant i am working with. These tiny little donuts are so delectably melts in your mouth with a special house sauce for dipping. Since, i had them at the restaurant, its then my favorite to make make at home! They're not so sweet actually. Perfect for cold morning here in FL, as well sipping my hot coco with marshmallow! Life is good! Good morning!

The key to success in any small business is providing high quality products at the best price on the market. Especially in the frozen yogurt industry, customers are looking for the best tasting and healthiest options on the market. For this reason, it's important to find suppliers who are industry leaders in frozen yogurt. The brands you choose will depend on what your market research has shown your area requests the most, whether kid-friendly or gourmet. It's important to consider a few elements to guarantee you are choosing the right frozen yogurt supplier.
Make a list of the different types of frozen yogurt you want to carry in your shop. This should include flavors, sugar-free options and non-dairy options. You may also want to consider numerous brands, as well. By doing your research on specific companies that supply to your area, you can decide what company will provide you with the best product for your business. Create a budget for how much you are willing to spend on your product. This will help you to narrow down how many choices you can afford to offer your customers, while remaining profitable. You don't want to provide too many choices and have flavors that you don't sell, but you also don't want to few of options either. Refer to your marketing data from your business plan to make the right choice.
Look for a distributor with many years of success in the business. These companies have a proven track record for customer service, which will ensure the quality of your product. You may even be able to refer to your equipment supplier for their recommendations or use a consultant to help choose, as well. These knowledgeable teams work with suppliers, distributors and equipment companies to give small businesses a chance to find their own success.

I’m not fond of peanut butter but we can’t run out of it since the husband is such a fan! He can finish a bottle in one sitting and just like him the little man loves PB too! They love it in their cookies, sandwiches, and bananas and since I like to give them different kinds of snacks, I am now including peanut butter into some of my dishes and breads. I must say it’s really good and I am becoming a peanut butter fan myself. But then again, the main reason why I don’t like it is that I tend to have pimples, am not saying it’s the cause but it’s what happens whenever I get to have my share of peanut butter.


Untill recently, I stumbled upon Wow Butter “Taste Just Like Peanut Butter!” It’s the only peanut butter replacement in the world that taste, feel, and looks like the real thing! It has a creamy texture but it’s made in 100% peanut free, gluten free, nut free, egg free, and dairy free facility. It has no added colours, flavours and preservatives and most importantly it’s made with all natural, NON GMO ingredients.
I love making the peanut butter filled donuts either i made the dough by scratch or a store bought biscuit dough (Pillsbury). Pretty simple, prepare the biscuit and heat oil for deep frying. Then toss the dough, wait until golden brown and drain the excess oil. Cool. Then start preparing the delicious peanut butter sauce and you can use the WOWButter this time it doesn't make any difference. My son said "wow it's peanut butter! YUMMY" lol. 

For the peanut butter sauce filling: 
  • 1/4 cup heavy whip cream 
  • 2 egg yolks 
  • 4 tbsp white sugar 
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk 
  • half tsp vanilla extract 
  • 3-4 tbsp WOW BUTTER 
  • 1/4 cup crash peanuts (optional)

I have often talked about how I lose weight in my previous post but nothing so detailed and honest. I am somehow hesitant because I know exactly how it feels to be on the other side. Like all those stories about successful weight loss are just stories, easier said than done. I have read a lot of how to’s before and try to strictly follow it but nothing seemed to work. Well that was actually the wrong there, I strictly followed, not considering the fact that something that works for the other may not work for some. So I reached almost size 14 and then came the turning point. I wasn’t happy already and realized I have to work for it. When you’re in a battle, you need to be armed and that’s what I did. I read all the how to’s again, grab as much healthy magazines, and underlined the things I believed would work.

I’ll share some of those that really helped me shed off those extra pounds. First, water therapy. Drinking 2 full glasses of water in the morning before anything jump starts everything. When you drink water in an empty stomach, it increases your metabolism and also makes you feel full the rest of the day. In addition, don’t drink water right away after a meal. Wait for 30 mins before drinking, if you want you can squeeze out lemon as well.

Cut the sugar. I love desserts I managed to lay-low. It doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy sugary treats anymore, believe me, I still bake a lot. The secret is to share your portion. When you can’t help but to grab that super moist chocolate cake, slice and share the other half.

Exercise. You don’t have to be on the gym and follow those strict routines. Exercise means to move as much as you can. Since I’m a full time mom and don’t have much time to work out, I opted for gardening and mowing, those I consider my exercise, not just fun but therapeutic as well.

If you want to try food supplements, there’s nothing wrong with that. I did too but you gotta make sure it’s safe. Don’t expect it to be so effective that it brings about miracles. My point is if it’s safe then it’s worth the try. Like TRIMSPA diet pills and TRIMSPA diet supplement, a good friend recommended it to me so I wasn’t scared to try it. It’s the combination of all the steps I mentioned that made me lose weight. Hey but I’m far from skinny. Just that I’m very much happy and satisfied with my size now that I became a fashion blogger. (Big Grin) Who would have thought? LOL!
