My Thoughts
I love chicken but had  never been the greatest chicken cook.  I always tended to over cook it.  The Chicken Bible is truly a blessing to have in my home.  It’s teaching me proper cooking techniques, recipes, knowledge of chicken parts and so much more.  I’ve always felt that chicken was the most versatile meat, and with all of the new recipes that I’m learning from this book, I love it even more!

 

What you’ll find inside:

 


 

 

Herbed Roasted Chicken

This fresh and flavorful recipe gets its vibrant flavor from our buttery herb paste made with scallions, tarragon, thyme, and spices. We butterflied the chicken and then spread the paste underneath the skin to achieve a crispy exterior. To ensure that the chicken would keep its fresh herb flavor, we slathered the paste over the top of the chicken halfway through cooking.

Turkey Cutlets with Barley and Swiss Chard

For a hearty weeknight meal (and a break from chicken), we recommend quick-cooking turkey cutlets. Because turkey cutlets cook quickly, we prepared our barley and Swiss chard first. We cooked the barley with onion and garlic and then added in the Swiss chard. To give the cutlets a bright, citrusy flavor that wasn’t too overpowering, we caramelized lemon and squeezed the mixture over the top of the cooked chicken.

 

 

Cast Iron Easier Fried Chicken

You’ll find plenty of fried chicken recipes in our cookbook, but this one is your new go-to if you’re looking for a fuss-free cast-iron version. We brined the chicken in buttermilk for about 30 minutes to prevent it from drying out while cooking. To achieve a perfectly crispy, crunchy coating, we whisked our dry ingredients and spices with buttermilk and dredged the chicken pieces in the mixture before shallow-frying them in our pan. We then cooked the chicken in the oven for about 12 minutes.

Solar Panels Might Be a Future Technology, but We’re Still in the Present

Solar energy has been getting a lot more attention as of late. This is likely due to more people learning about environmental concerns. As we learn more about the planet and what we can do to preserve it, more of us are likely to switch to eco-friendly habits such as reducing energy usage and reliance on fossil fuels. One solution to this is to consider future technologies such as solar panels.

 

But why is it still considered a future technology? Many people have already installed solar panels on their roofs and they’re being used across the world on a large scale. With so much adoption already, what makes us consider it a future technology still?

Source: https://unsplash.com/photos/mIlvCv21W1s (CC0)

 

The cost of using solar is still far too high

 

If you’re thinking of investing in solar then a good option to consider is ChooseSolar.com and its community solar projects. This is because solar panels are extremely expensive and a huge investment that requires decades before it can start paying for itself. Solar panels are extremely powerful and advanced, but they’re not going to be a cheaper alternative to power for at least several more years.

 

As such, we find it hard to recommend solar purely because it’s as accessible as we want it to be. Thankfully, this might change in the near future thanks to different kinds of government incentives to install solar panels on our roofs.

 

The way we use power is still rather wasteful

 

Most of us wouldn’t care about leaving a light on for too long or forgetting to switch off something like a computer. However, if everyone in the world paid attention to mindful energy usage, then the entire planet would be better off. Sadly, that’s an optimistic scenario that just isn’t going to happen.

 

The idea of investing in your home and reducing energy consumption is great for the planet, but the reality is that you can already cut down on your carbon footprint and use less electricity by simply changing a few things about your lifestyle. Solar panels aren’t an excuse to be wasteful with energy. Instead, it all starts with you and how you use electricity around the home.

 

Solar energy is still something very new to most people

 

People will no doubt have a lot of questions about solar energy as the technology starts to become more mainstream. This is part of our natural instinct to be curious and to want to learn more about the energy that we’re using.

 

Solar energy is always going to be something we chase after. Some may argue that we’re starting to reach maximum efficiency in terms of how much energy we can harvest from the sun. Whatever your views of solar energy are, it’s clear that it’s still a very young technology that needs more refining before we can introduce it into every home in the world. However, that doesn’t make it any less exciting and we look forward to the day that everyone has a portable solar panel that is capable of powering an entire home.

Design Your Own Mask With Mask Market #USAMaskMarket

We got this awesome mask from Mask Market in exchange for an honest review,  all opinions are our own.

By now most of us know the masks are not going away any time soon.  As most of you have seen if i am wearing a mask I want it to be fun and a part of my outfit.  There are so many out there, but ones I really want are still hard to find.  Thanks to Mask Market I can now make any mask I want.

You can now design your own mask with Mask Market they are cute , machine washable , adjustable, and breathable with a filter.

Now this new mask is made on a I-Phone app.  I personally do not have an I-Phone so I went to my moms house and used her phone to make it.  I thought it was going to be difficult in reality I had my perfect mask made and ordered in less then 4 minutes.  This also included the download time of the App.

The App even has a Selfi feature so you can see how it is going to look.  This great picture Chatty Patty made for me and I just loaded the picture on the app.  It was quick easy and very easy to order.  I love the Mask Market and would suggest it to everyone.

Giveaway: The Unofficial ALDI Cookbook

Fans of ALDI, it’s time to celebrate your love of the best-ever grocery store with a cookbook dedicated entirely to your favorite products.

Jeanette Hurt, author of The Unofficial ALDICookbook: Delicious Recipes Made with Fan Favorites from the Award-Winning Grocery Store [978-1-64604-124-4, $17.95, Ulysses Press, February 23, 2021] has created a special menu to wine and dine your loved one(s) this weekend.

With an easy one-stop-shopping trip to your local ALDI, you can grab a few ingredients to serve up a one-of-a-kind cheese plate and assorted tasty nibbles alongside bottles of wine from ALDI’s great international selections.

Pictured below (starting at the top-left and moving clockwise), Hurt suggests ALDI’s truffle cheddar, chevre with lemon zest and black pepper over walnuts, 1000-day aged gouda, honey and dried cherries, menage sheep, goat and cow milk cheese, olives, marissa sheep’s milk cheese, raspberries, rhubarb and gin Valentine’s Day cheese (center). Hurt also recommends ALDI’s cauliflower crackers, olive spread, and her own Cannoli Dip (a recipe featured in The Unofficial ALDI Cookbook), and heart shaped truffles. To toast, she poured Prosecco and Cabernet Sauvignon, both available at ALDI. Check out this delicious dessert/snack recipe excerpt from the cookbook:

Hurt’s Cannoli Dip

CANNOLI DIP

My sister Karen makes this incredibly addictive dessert dip packed with all the good flavors of a cannoli. It’s so delicious you’ll have a hard time not eating the whole thing in one sitting!

Yield: 3 cups or about 12 (¼-cup) servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

1 cup Special Emporium whole milk ricotta cheese or other ricotta cheese of your choice

1 (8-ounce) package Happy Farms cream cheese or other cream cheese of your choice

¾ cup powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 (10-ounce) package chocolate mini-chips

graham crackers, cookies, or fresh fruit, to serve

1. Place the ricotta cheese, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract in a food processor fitted with a standard blade. Blend on low for 1 to 2 minutes until smooth and creamy.

2. Stir in the chocolate mini-chips. Serve with graham crackers, cookies, or fresh fruit.

Notes

If you have some sweet brandy, chocolate liqueur, or Tuaca (a vanilla-and-spice-flavored sweet Italian brandy), add 1 tablespoon for extra flavor.

If you’re looking to make a slightly healthier version, you can sub low-fat cottage cheese for the ricotta, and you can sub Neufchâtel cheese for the cream cheese. It’s still scrumptious!

This also makes a toothsome filling for a layer cake.

Meeting The Needs Of Your Aging Parents

It’s never quite a pleasant topic to think about when our parents are aging and we begin to realize that they are not quite as capable of being independent as they once were. It’s normalized in western society that adult kids leave their parents, but that also means that older parents can be left alone even when they shouldn’t be. If you’re starting to notice your older parent could use a little help, what should you do for them?

Being on top of their medical needs

As we get older, we are all significantly more likely to be living with one chronic health condition or another. Arthritis, osteoporosis, and heart disease, for instance, are all significantly more common for older people. If your loved one is managing a chronic illness, you should ask them if they would like some help or company the next time they have an appointment with the doctor or with managing their medical needs in general. Aside from having you keep track of things for them, you can also help them with things like wearable medical technology that can give them reminders of when to take tablets, as well as monitoring various things such as heart rate to help them stay healthy in the day-to-day.

 

Staying healthy, active, and social

If you and your older loved one want them to remain as independent as they can for as long as they can, then you might not need to be worried about treating any conditions right now but you want to make sure it stays that way for a long time. More effort needs to be put into maintaining healthy habits as we grow older. Talk to their doctor about what exercise is safe for them to do and consider putting together an elderly nutrition program with professional help. Loneliness can be a big factor in mental illness when we’re older, too, so finding social groups for them to get involved with locally can help, too.

 

The question of care

If it’s not just a question of helping them maintain good health practices or their health care needs, but they are having trouble in independently making and eating food, using the bathroom, or getting around, then you might need to look into whether or not you parent needs care. There are different kinds of care available. You may be able to apply for funding to act as a carer, yourself, or you might look for domiciliary care that allows them to live in their own home. Moving into a care residence might seem like the most drastic option available but, with a little research, you can find some great facilities equipped to handle all of their needs.

 

To make sure that you’re meeting the needs of your aging parent properly, it’s essential to consider their specific needs and your ability to address them. There’s no one size fits all solutions, you need to work with them to find what they have trouble doing and what they can do just fine with.

Stop Crash Dieting Make Health And Fitness A Lifestyle Change

 

We all hear about these awesome diets that they say you can loose weight fast.  Let’s be honest no one is going to eat nothing but cabbage or eggs for the rest of their life.  Along with the fact that it is not sustainable your body is not getting what it needs to be healthy.

When you are looking to get fit and get healthy the best way to start is with little healthier life changes.  With a healthier life getting fit will start all on its own.  One small step you can take is drinking more water.  I know I have been lazy about drinking my water.  This is one little step that will make a huge difference.   With the Hydro Jug you will not only be drinking in style, but the jug it’s self is the amount of water you should be drinking.  They also have awesome accessories that make the Jug cute and easier to have with you all day long.

Supplements are another small step you can take to a healthier life.  This will not take any time from your day, but can make a huge different in the way you feel.  Everyone knows the multi-vitamin and extra vitamins like B and C.  There are also others you can take and just add to your every day drink. Crushed Tonic is a great way to add collagen peptides, probiotics, biotin and organic superfoods to your diet.  Just empty your packet into your water and you are done.   They have a few different ones to choose from and this is going to be one of the easiest things you can do to make a difference in your health.

As food goes we all know what we need to start limiting.  For me I need to start staying away from Jalapeno Chips these are my down fall.  Keto is a huge diet right now and for a lot of people this is a great way to go.  For me I am going to try low carb for sure, but I am going to have to take steps to get there.  with Ketonia you can still have some of your favorite carbs and not ruin your lifestyle change.  They have bread and macaroons that you can replace your high card snacks with.  I loved the bread mix.

 

The biggest thing to remember is to start small and work your way up.  Make it a lifestyle change and not a crash diet.  Now that you started eating and drinking healthier get out there and start walking.  Find a great outdoor activity that you love.  You may have to try a few till you find the one you like, but do not give up you will be looking and feeling better in no time.

Giveaway: Pencils Have Erasers, Washing Machines Have Unshrink It

 

When it comes to wool clothes, to err is human but to unshrink is divine. That’s because after your favorite sweater, dress or other woolen item has been washed in hot or warm water and shrunk, it has meant throwing it out. But that’s changed with Unshrink It, a seemingly magical solution with the power to grow garments back to their original size! Safe for colors and effective on merino, wool blends, cashmere, angora and even more, Unshrink It is the quick, easy way to fix the damage that was done. Also available on Amazon. (Affiliate link)

 
I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many articles of clothing I’ve shrunk over the years. I’ve lost a lot of my favorite sweaters, and some of my son’s and husband’s too.   I wish I had heard of Unshrink It a long time ago!  It’s so great to have this on hand for my next washing machine shrinkage mishap!
 

 

 

About

Who doesn’t love their favorite cashmere, merino or wool blend sweater?

We all make mistakes in the laundry room – really, we do.  But we no longer have to throw away our favorite wool jackets, sweaters, socks, dresses and gloves.

Unshrinkit is a patent-pending liquid solution that helps people gently unshrink their wool clothes back up to their original size.

It’s hand safe, color safe and sweater safe. No re-shrinkage. No damage. Real results.

 

Why does wool shrink?

When you buy a sweater, it is made up of long and straight wool fibers. The heat or agitation of the washer/dryer break the protein bonds and cause the fibers to curl up into a ball, shrinking your clothes.

How does Unshrinkit work?

Our patent-pending product interacts with the proteins in wool and relaxes the bonds in order to allow you to straighten out the fibers again. Once you’ve straightened the fibers, rinse the sweater in cold water to remove the solution. This allows the proteins to lock back into their original configuration!
