    Top 3 Cooking Oil Disposal Tips

    Kitchens are going to get busier during the holidays, but this doesn't mean that safety is going to be overlooked. In fact, fire prevention guidelines must be enforced better during the holiday season. Holiday celebrations are expected to involve plenty of cooking, and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports that the peak day for home cooking fires is Thanksgiving, which is followed by Christmas Day, the day before Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas Eve. In addition, cooking was the leading cause of reported residential fires from 2014 to 2018.

    The Effects of Eating Homecooked Food

    The Effects of Eating Homecooked Food

    “Nothing beats homecooked food.” Throughout the generations, this phrase leaves many mouths. Even for families who always eat out at Michelin-star restaurants, they still agree that no outside meal outdoes homecooked food. What makes homecooked dishes so different from outside food to cause one to think this way? Simply, food prepared at home remains the most nutritious and economical choice for everyone. Food cooked at home prevents too much money from being spent unnecessarily on outside food while decreasing the risk of consuming spoilt or bacteria-infested dishes. Although outside meals seem more convenient, it is not, when compared to the goodness of homecooked food. No doubt, homecooked food provides a healthier option, helps save money, as well as lessens the risk of eating the wrong thing.

    Fall Activity: Making Banana Bread That Looks Like My Dog

Every Fall, the frisky cool air always inspires in me a baking spirit as short-lived as the changing leaves. This typically extends for one disastrous October week leading up to Halloween where I try to make uncooked brownie balls that look like eyeballs or cookies topped with black licorice that make it look like a spider.

    A Very Non-Traditional Thanksgiving

    A Very Non-Traditional Thanksgiving

    The Before-Times What is your schema of schemata? Many years ago, I was reading a book on psychology, learning about phenomena such as cognitive dissonance, Freudian archetypes, and schemata. The book defined Schema as one's thoughts, feelings, and assumptions regarding a particular subject. For example, most people's schema of Thanksgiving involves turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy. Maybe it conjures images of family gatherings. But are these holidays warm, wholesome celebrations, or are they stressful and toxic? Even these subjective feelings are part of someone's schema of Thanksgiving. And we all have our own schema of culture, society, life, and the world at large.

    Sugar Cookies

    Sugar Cookies

    There is one thing that me and my littles love making, and it's cookies. Now I am by no means a master baker. I fully believe in if you have a good attitude while baking it will be amazing in the end. I never used to believe this until my mom made a very good point. My father is the real baker in the family, any baked goods the first time he tries making something it's amazing from the beginning. Now every year around Christmas time, my dad makes the best cookies. He's always tweaking the original recipe and making it his own. Now I'm not the biggest fan of the holidays, actually my family will call me the Grinch of Christmas and honestly I'd have to agree. But me and my mom always say that my dad has the most Christmas spirit and that is why his cookies come out amazing each time. When I was young I just believed I wasn't good at making cookies, that I just didn't have that special touch like my dad. Until I met my now fiancé, and his sweet little angel. Obviously kids naturally love cookies and are typically happy when they get a chance to help out in the kitchen. So for a long time she would beg me to make cookies, and I would always say well lets get your grumpa (that's what my kids call their grandfather.) and you can make cookies with him because I'm not good at making them. But she insisted that me and her needed to make them, so obviously looking at that sweet face how could you say no? I knew that they would probably come out terribly, but it made her happy so I figured why not. So we set up the kitchen kicked her dad out of the kitchen and we went to work. On a side note, I really hate making a mess like it really unnerves me and I typically clean as I go. But when you have a child that wants to help out, messes happen. So even though it unnerved me to watch her spill stuff everywhere I put on a smile and told her she was doing amazing. I don't know about all of you, but I like to ask simple questions to get my kids thinking. Such as if we need 4 cups of flour, and you just put 1 cup in the bowl how many do you need to get to 4 cups? And she really enjoys it, when she gets the answer right you just can see the happiness radiate out of her. So fast forwarding to the final product, we take a bite and I swear it taste just like my dads. I was so surprised we called my dad immediately after and told him all about it! After getting off the phone, my daughter (yes I say my daughter because I have helped raised her for years at this point.) asked me why I felt that our cookies wouldn't come out good. I looked at her, and I told her that I have never been able to make a cookie that ever tasted as good as the ones we made. She sat there for a second taking in what I said. And I will never forget what she told me, she looks at me and goes, "Mom what do you always tell me?" and honestly I blanked for a second, "That we don't say we can't do something, just because we didn't get it the first time or even the third time doesn't mean we won't figure it out eventually. You also tell me I can't say that I can't do something just because it didn't work out the first time." I looked at this sweet little face and she was right. I always tell her just because we didn't succeed the first time, means we give up and not try again. Since then I've tried looking on the brighter side of things, and to start taking my own advice and to relax a little. Messes and learning are apart of life, and it's okay that we don't get it right away. That doesn't mean that we can't learn how to make something amazing in the end.

    5 Reasons Why You Should Be Cooking More at Home

    5 Reasons Why You Should Be Cooking More at Home

    Home is where the heart is and so should your eating be. Over the years including this one, I have taken a few moments throughout the week and would just grab a bite to eat at my local fast food drive-thru or local take-out restaurant especially during my work lunch hour. Why? Because I felt it was easier, quicker and would also spice up my food palette a little bit if I ate more food with different ingredients in it than what I had in my refrigerator (at least so I thought). But since I've been on work furlough for the past few months AND was on previously work-from-home status due to COVID-19, I've realized that the only way I'm going to learn how to cook better and save more money is simply by taking more time out and consistently cook from home instead of letting everyone else cook for me everywhere else.

    Magical meals

    Around the world, and throughout history, communal meals have played an invaluable role in religious and spiritual life. From the Jewish Passover, to the Christian Eucharist, to the offering of food to various shrines and idols, to the "cakes & ale" of modern Wicca. Food is a gift from the divine, in earthly form, a picture of death and rebirth, and a proof to the faithful of the protection and provision they receive as their reward. And the ideal way to have a good time together with your spiritual family.

    Blueberry Coconut Pancakes!

    Blueberry Coconut Pancakes!

    Hello my little lovelies! So for this recipe to be honest it was a total experiment. I was just feeling creative in my kitchen and this was born. Mainly because I'm really not much of a breakfast person and once it comes to breakfast I normally just throw whatever into a pan with some eggs and call it breakfast. It turned to be delicious and will definitely be going into my arsenal of recipes. This filled me up pretty much until dinner so if you need a meal where you're going to be busy all day and know that you probably won't be eating lunch this is perfect! Now I used coconut ice cream protein powder from 1Up to help make these more filling. If you don't have that it's okay since there will be coconut flakes in the recipe but if that's not enough you can use a little bit of coconut extract. Or instead of milk you can use coconut milk if you're lactose intolerant. That will definitely give you that coconut flavor. Without the milk, eggs and protein powder this recipe can easily be made vegan with a few substitutes.

    Chili, America's Oldest Addiction

    Chili, America's Oldest Addiction

    Since the 17th century, Chili has captivated the hearts and stomachs of millions of Americans and was even deemed the state food of Texas in 1977. When chili was first made the hearty stew was known as chili con carne, meaning a spicy stew contains beef, beans, and tomatoes. Believe it or not, chili use to only be a tender beef in a red soup base, and over many years the iconic cowboy dish evolved to have many different additives, including beans. Due to chili’s captivating and deep history, chili now takes many forms, but as long as the dish is slow-cooked and made with a creative spirit, anyone can find a version that fulfills them.

    Coconut palms are extremely popular and valuable because they have helped to sustain life in this part of the planet since the dawn of time. However, they are an invasive species and once established on an island, they start to take over. They have the ability to thrive in inhospitable environments, reach high altitudes, and produce dozens of coconuts year after year - 24 / 7. Coconut palms, however, are invasive and the culmination of a species, as they reach higher altitudes, thrive more easily, and tend to be more resistant to disease than their larger relatives. The dwarf coconut palm is a popular choice for planting palm trees in homes, gardens and parks because it is more susceptible to disease than its larger relative.

Since I was young, I have loved the idea, the creativity and the relaxation of baking different things. I love to make macarons, layer cakes and gingerbread in particular and the activity of it really gets me away from my laptop (where I’m sure you know that I spend most of my life). So, I hope you enjoy me talking about what I bake and why I bake it complete with pictures (if not very good) of me actually baking, my baked goods in the process of being created and when they’re finished. I’m really happy to share this with you. And if you like, you can show me your baking (yes, I spend a lot of time writing, but I also spend a lot of time reading other people’s articles!), I would love to see it. Since I was in school, I was always interested in creating things, whether that be pieces of writing, welding things to make small statues or baking foods and making sweets (candy, if you’re American). I hope you enjoy looking at some of the stuff that has honestly kept me sane, because I seem to be going slightly mad.

    Banana Bread

    Banana Bread

    Banana Bread Ready in 1 ½ hours Serves~ 6 people I believe that recipes are guidelines, these can be switched and changed, I grew up with a very hard working mother, gone from morning to dark every day to support our family of 4. Yet she always had time to back for our school lunches. I miss those days, don't we all? The simplicity of being a child, where our only responsibility was to clean our rooms and put our laundry in the hamper. My fondest memories were of me and my mother, on sick days. She would wait until my two sisters were gone to school and me being the slow poke of her three girls, she would look at me and say, "You look sick." with a smile on her face. I remember the excitement, knowing what those words would bring. She would put on her vinyl, Loverboy, or Bob Segar, sometimes a bit of Red Rider, but most fondly I remember the Beatles, and crank the knob. Mouthwatering peanut butter cookies! My job was to press the fork into each one making tail criss cross markings. I remember the joy of opening my lunch box and seeing that shiny apple and those hand made cookies. It's a tradition I kept with my son. Who doesn't need a sick day here and there? Banana bread was rare in our house, we were on a budget and with three girls there were rarely any bananas left. But that thick warm bread with butter melting down our fingers still so fresh in my mind. It's a memory I hold so dearly. Now as I was saying above recipes are guidelines, change it up, add walnuts, or raisins, my partner loves chocolate chips in his. It's personal when we bake, these recipes are more than just recipes. They are words of love, personal gifts we give our children, family and friends. It's almost like magic, a pinch of this and a dollop of that, mix it up with a smile. Don't get me started on how it filled our homes with blissful smells that will stay with us for a lifetime. Food is for sharing, when you give someone food, it is saying I love you, and I want to give you something of myself.

    Discovering the Magic of Abruzzo

    Discovering the Magic of Abruzzo

    In the heart of Italy, snuggled between the majestic mountain ranges of the Apennines and washed by the azure Adriatic Sea lies Abruzzo, one of the most authentic and green regions not only in all of Italy, but in the whole of Europe. Painted with swaths of stunning natural landscapes, uncontaminated vistas, and thrilling wildlife, Nature has created some of its best masterpieces here. From the rolling hills to the high plains overlooking verdant valleys, olive groves that harmoniously blend with vineyards, orchards, and colorful flowerings create a picturesque backdrop for the authentic, rural slow-paced life. Besides being a journey through one of the most pristine natural areas of Italy, the land of Abruzzo is also a journey to an enchanting world of strong warriors and saints. Each period has left a timeless and indelible mark. The medieval villages perched on peaks preserve the folklore, while impressive castles and remote hermitages set in the rocky mountainside have all survived through long centuries, existing in perfect synergy with the idyllic landscape.

    Authentic Tonkotsu Ramen in the heart of London

    Authentic Tonkotsu Ramen in the heart of London

    One thing that is not in short supply in London is a vast array of venues featuring different ethnic foods. As of recently, I wanted to give a particular person in my life a unique birthday that they would remember. Knowing they were a fan of authentic Japanese food, I set out in search of the one thing they had not tried yet, a traditional ramen bar. Now London is in no way lacking if you are looking for sushi or ramen restaurants, so at first, my search ended up with many places but most were quite pricey. When I thought I would have to spend an arm and leg to give them their first authentic ramen experience, I was about to accept the defeat of my pocketbook when hope shined its light with a familiar name from my time in Japan: Kanada-Ya.

    What to Eat in Mystic, Connecticut

    What to Eat in Mystic, Connecticut

    I can’t believe that in eight years of asking people where I could go to the beach from DC by train, nobody’s ever suggested Mystic. Still, that’s remedied now, and I had a great time. The train journey itself was great – I love long train journeys, seven hours in this case – and it feels safe and relaxing in this 2020 year, with only every other seat booked and masks worn throughout (expect for eating and drinking).

    "Oh, I'm a vegetarian."

    "Oh, I'm a vegetarian."

    It is a well-known fact that the vegan diet is one that raises various opinions, many of derogatory nature, whether intended to be or not. After not having eaten meat for over 7 months now, and having decided to progressively remove it from my diet about 4 months previous to that, I have heard many, many comments about the switch to plant-based consumption. Most of which make me laugh a little. Here are the some of the responses I have received after saying "I'm a vegetarian"...

    100% Vegan : Soft Vanilla and Ginger Shortbread Biscuits

    100% Vegan : Soft Vanilla and Ginger Shortbread Biscuits

    Of course, you probably know me very well for invading Vocal with my film studies stuff and articles entitled ‘a filmmaker’s guide’. I have often explained that I love to bake as well. Since I was young, I have loved the idea, the creativity and the relaxation of baking different things. I love to make macarons, layer cakes and gingerbread in particular and the activity of it really gets me away from my laptop (where I’m sure you know that I spend most of my life). So, I hope you enjoy me talking about what I bake and why I bake it complete with pictures (if not very good) of me actually baking, my baked goods in the process of being created and when they’re finished. I’m really happy to share this with you. And if you like, you can show me your baking (yes, I spend a lot of time writing, but I also spend a lot of time reading other people’s articles!), I would love to see it. Since I was in school, I was always interested in creating things, whether that be pieces of writing, welding things to make small statues or baking foods and making sweets (candy, if you’re American). I hope you enjoy looking at some of the stuff that has honestly kept me sane, because I seem to be going slightly mad.
