Kaniwa Salad with Roasted Hokkaido and Fig

Wednesday, September 21, 2016
















Kaniwa is, like quinoa, an ancient grain that grows in Peru and Bolivia. It is about half the size of quinoa but otherwise quite similar. It’s an excellent source of protein and amino acids, and exceptionally high in fiber, iron, and calcium and is also gluten-free like quinoa. Enjoy it in salads, soups or as the stuffing. However, one major difference between the two is that kaniwa doesn’t have saponins that gives quinoa a soapy, slightly bitter flavour if not rinsed properly.



  • 150 g Kaniwa
  • 300 ml Water
  • 2 Ripe yet firm figs
  • 300 g Hokkaido pumpkin, diced and roasted
  • Handful of red basil leaves, chopped
  • A bunch of chives, chopped
  • 4 Spring onions, white part only, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Truffle oil
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp White balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Combine the kaniwa with water in a small saucepan. Bring to a gentle boil, then lower the heat, cover, and simmer gently for about 15 minutes, until the water is absorbed.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and allow them to cool to room temperature. Add the remaining ingredients and toss together. Place them over cabbage leaves or greens and serve immediately.





















Grandma's Country White Bread

Saturday, September 17, 2016




INGREDIENTS
3 cups luke-warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. yeast
1/3 cup oil
1 Tbsp. salt
6 - 7 cups unbleached ground white wheat flour (You can use regular all-purpose flour with success as well. You will need more flour... closer to 8 cups, and it will make a softer, less-coarse bread.)
*opt. 1 Tbsp. vital wheat gluten (if using whole white wheat flour)

DIRECTIONS
In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water and sugar. Let sit 10 minutes. Add the oil. Add the salt and flour (starting with 6 cups of flour). Mix all together. Knead the dough thoroughly until all ingredients are incorporated, and dough is smooth, elastic, very slightly sticky, and pulls away from the bowl (6-10 minutes). As you knead the dough, you may add more flour as needed, and repeat the process until dough reaches the desired consistency. 

Cover the bowl of dough with a dish towel or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled (an hour or more depending on how warm your kitchen is.) You may speed up this process by placing the covered bowl inside the oven with the oven light on, and another bowl of warm water sitting on the lower rack.

Punch the dough down, divide and and form into 2 loaves. Place the dough in 2 greased bread pans. (I use 9" pans.) Cover and let rise till the top of the dough is an inch or two above the bread pans.

Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Remove the baked loaves from their pans immediately, and place on a cooling rack. Slice, and serve warm with butter and honey.

Store in an air-tight bag. Baked loaves AND bread dough freeze well. 




The best home cleaning method for removing stains from the mattress




250 ml of 3% hydrogen (you can buy it in all pharmacies)
 3 tbs. of baking soda
 A drop of liquid soap or a detergent

Note: you should use this mixture immediately after you make it, because then it’s most effective.

Directions:

First, you need to mix the hydrogen and the baking soda. When the baking soda is dissolve, you need to add 1 or 2 drops of liquid soap or detergent. Mix again. Pour the liquid in empty spray bottle.

How to use it:

Shake the bottle before use and spray with the mixture on the dirty parts of the mattress. Leave the foam to works its magic. You can wait until the part is dry, or you can use a fan and use it to dry it faster. When it’s dry, use a dry brush or a vacuum cleaner to remove the remaining of the soda.

You will notice that all the stains are gone and your mattress is just like brand new. You will be amazed by the results. Thanks for reading and don’t forget to share with your friends and family.

texas roadhouse rolls

Sunday, September 4, 2016



Ingredients:
4 tsp. active dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
2 c. milk, scalded and cooled to lukewarm
3 Tbl. of melted butter, slightly cooled
1/2 c. sugar
2 quarts all purpose flour (7-8 cups)
2 whole eggs
2 tsp. salt

Dissolve yeast in warm water with a teaspoon of sugar; let stand until frothy. Combine yeast mixture, milk, 1/2 cup sugar and enough flour to make a medium batter (about the consistency of pancake batter). Beat thoroughly. Add melted butter, eggs and salt. Beat well. Add enough flour to form a soft dough. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto counter and let dough rest. Meanwhile, grease a large bowl. Knead dough until smooth and satiny and put in greased bowl; turn over to grease top. (I used the dough hook on my Kitchen-
Aid to knead this for about 4-5 minutes). Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in bulk. Punch down. Turn out onto a floured board. Divide into portions for shaping; let rest 10 minutes. Shape dough into desired forms. Place on greased baking sheets. Let rise until doubled.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Baste immediately with butter. Yield: 5 to 6 dozen. Serve with Cinnamon Honey Butter.

*Extra Tips: Shape the rolls into a rectangle, about 1/2-inch thick, then fold it in half, making it an inch thick. Roll over the dough to seal the two halves and using a dough scraper, cut them into squares and place them on the baking sheet

All-In-One Magic Bathroom Cleaner

Thursday, September 1, 2016




What you need:
-1 Professional Spray Bottle (it is worth the extra $1, trust me!)
-8 oz. Distilled White Vinegar
-4 oz. Lemon Juice
-2 oz. Liquid Soap (I use Dawn)
-2 tsp. Baking Soda
-10 oz water




To Mix:
Funnel in all the ingredients, squeeze out the suds, screw on your cap and go make your bathroom sparkle! 

To Use: 
Clear the surfaces, use toilet tissue to wipe off any dirt, hair, spilled liquids, ect. Using the lightest spray setting, spray down everything- sink, counter, mirror, faucets, tub and the whole toilet, inside and out. I let it sit while I sweep the floor. I then use a microfiber cloth to wipe down the surfaces from the cleanest to the dirtiest. In our house that means mirror, faucets, sink, tub/shower and then the toilet. Be sure to rinse out the tub/shower really well so it isn't slippery. 

Stubborn stains in your tub? 
 Whether its a dirt ring at the top or dirt stuck in the textured bottom, this will solve your problem! Spray down the problem area heavily, and then using a sponge with a non-scratch scrubber, scrub in a circular motion. Again, rinse very well and then put on your shades because its going to be shiny.
