Boba Milk Tea Is a Delightful Tea

While this beverage has come into being since 1980 the various combinations of sweet flavors like honey and condensed milk has added to its rich frothy texture. This fantastic tea mixture is also known as Boba drink, pearl tea drink, Boba ice tea, black pearl tea and tapioca ball drink. It has also changed the minds of many who are used to drinking a hot cup of tea. No one is sure whether the Boba milk tea is a delight drink to eat or a dessert to drink. However, because of the quality and taste it is suitable to have it at any time of the day and in all seasons. This tea mixture is also served both hot and cold.

Indeed the Boba tea is a few steps ahead from the ordinary tea drinks because of its variety of colors and flavors. Some of them include almond, banana, coconut, cinnamon, blueberry, honeydew, lychee and much more. People can order for any kind of fruit flavors and some of the shops offers the tea drinks with rare

Raisin Nut Cookies

These cookies are made entirely from nut flours and whole raw nuts along with just a few other ingredients. If you can’t find the flours in a grocery store near you, try ordering online or just make your own by grinding raw whole nuts. If you do grind your own almond and cashew nuts for the flours listed below, be sure you grind them fairly well because you’ll be using other nuts ground more roughly. I’m happy to report that Trader Joe’s stores carry both almond and cashew flours at this time along with coconut sugar.

Now, if you’re on a diet, you may wish to pass on these because they have a pretty high fat content but you’ll find them quite satisfying so you won’t need to eat a ton of them.

And through the use of coconut sugar and stevia, they will be far lower on the glycemic index than if you used other sweeteners. I’ve also made these using only stevia but I prefer combing the coconut sugar with stevia as I

Bread on the Grill

We can think of all kinds of reasons to use the grill. You can enjoy fresh baked bread while camping, or at the cabin, or at the next family reunion. Sometimes, it’s just nice to get out of the kitchen, enjoy the spring air, and bake outside. (Watch the neighbors turn their noses upwind when the smell of fresh baked bread wafts over the fence.) And in the summertime, you don’t have to heat up the kitchen to bake. Finally, if there is ever an extended emergency when the power is off, you may have the only fresh bread in town.

You can bake nearly anything with a covered grill. (If your grill doesn’t have a cover, improvise with a large inverted pot.) The heat rises and circulates in the covered area just as it does in your oven. The heat source can be charcoal, gas, or even wood. We prefer gas because it is easier to control and does not impart a smoked taste to the bread. Since it is hottest near the flames, elevate

A few simple, fast and meatless Persian Foods

Iran is full of food. Sometimes we see this variation in each province and ethnicity, and sometimes we find surprisingly different foods between two cities or two villages within ten minutes.

Amidst all this diversity of food, what is often overlooked is the menu of restaurants and cafes and then the rest of the country, followed by fast food and sometimes Iranian meatless food. Perhaps the main reason for this is that we Iranians consider food a part of our honor and an important part of our hospitality and do not go for cheap or fast food until we have expensive and meaty foods to offer.

In fact, we keep those foods for our busy and busy days and forget that they can also be introduced and offered to our guests as new flavors and flavors.

In this note, we will review ten Iranian fast foods that also fall into the category of non-meat foods. Get along with Negarin Food.

Kabob Grilling Tips

You can cook almost any kind of meat and many vegetables and fruits as a kabob. Just make sure that you use ingredients that will cook in approximately the same time. Otherwise some pieces will be done and burning while others still have a ways to go. Making separate skewers with similar ingredients can solve this. Try to leave a little space between each piece (a quarter inch should do). This will help the heat circulate better and cook each piece more evenly.

Marinating the meat ahead of cooking will give flavor as well as keep the meat moist. Use your favorite marinade and 1″ chunks of meat in a zip-lock bag for 1 hour before you prepare and grill your kabobs. Nothing says that the meat has to be cut into chunks. For something different, cut the meat into strips and marinate. Then put them on the skewers in a ribbon style. Cook the marinade on the stove for a few minutes, and then use it to baste the kabobs with as they cook. This will add flavor and help keep them from drying out.

You can use either metal skewers or bamboo. If you

Chianina Steakhouse

As you enter the restaurant, a glass wall of wine offers mysterious glimpses of the low-lit restaurant behind. Not until you reach the hostess at the end of the entry are you awarded with a full view of the restaurant and bar. Only then will you discover the sophisticated ambiance of neutral tones, geometric shapes and natural textures of wood, marble and metal. The predominant greys and whites pay homage to the Chianina breed of cattle that is the restaurant’s namesake. Behind the wall of glass and wine is a long white-marble bar capable of accommodating approximately 20 patrons. The other half of the room is consumed by the restaurant with mostly booths and a few 2-seat tables off the bar. At the end of the bar is an automated wine bar that allows affordable samplings of fine wines that are being sold by the bottle. Adding to the ambiance is the trendy music softly being played overhead that will occasionally hook you into the beat.

We arrived early on a Saturday evening without reservations and were not surprised that the entire restaurant was reserved for the night. Luckily, the bar was completely open so we saddled

Countertop Grilling

The traditional grill comes with one or more cooking surface. The cooking surface sits atop heating elements and a drip pan is used to collect juices and fats while cooking. To achieve smokeless grilling, pour water into the drip pan to cool the drippings before they have a chance to create smoke.

Another type is the countertop contact grill. These grills work by applying heat directly to food via heating grids. Countertop contact grills usually have two heating surfaces that is used to clamp down the food. Think of a waffle maker and you pretty much get the idea. Contact grills work best with sandwiches and the likes and are not that effective with thick meat. Countertop contact grill heat is usually well insulated inside the grill itself, leaving your countertop unscathed.

Countertop grills are popular because they are easy to clean. The grill surface and drip pan are easily removable and can fit most dishwashers. For contact grills, you just open the grill and wipe the grilling surface when done cooking. Countertop grills are quite portable too. Any countertop surface will do when you have that urge to do some grilling. When done grilling, you

Charcoal Barbeque Grill

There are also some potential negatives with using this type of grill. The coal can be hard to light, especially if it has become wet or damp in any way. And once you’ve lit it there will be no way to adjust the temperature. You will have to get a ‘feel’ for the best number of coals to use while you are setting up. And when you are done grilling your food you will be forced to let the charcoal cool for a considerable time (several hours) before putting the grill away. Similar to fire wood, the coals must completely burn out over time before they are safe.

However, these are nothing major and should not steer you away from using a charcoal barbeque grill at all. Once you become used to operating one you will quickly realize the benefits in terms of flavor and overall grilling experience. Here is a list of things to ponder when considering the merits of one of these charcoal grills.

  • The briquets produce carbon monoxide and cannot be used in an enclosed space. Make sure you have ample circulation around the grill before you light them.

5 Important Factors for Being as Healthy as Possible

If your health is failing or compromised, it can overshadow all other areas of your life. From aches, pains, and lethargy to life-threatening diseases, not feeling your best can quickly be a drain on your energy, time, and resources.

Fortunately, reclaiming your health and improving your state of affairs even preventing disease is made easier with some essential steps that proactively protect your health. You must add these healthy habits to your daily routine to promote optimal health. Creating a quality life starts with your health, and these critical factors:

1. Avoiding toxic substances

People put things into their bodies that are downright dangerous. Whether it’s cigarettes, alcohol, prescription or recreational drugs it’s all a risky cocktail that compromises your mental and physical health. These substances have the potential to be highly addictive, and your casual use of them can quickly spiral out of control, taking a toll on your health and wellness. If you realize that you do have a problem with substance abuse and addiction, seeking Ohio outpatient treatment and similar options in other states might be a good idea for getting back on track with your health and

Desserts for Diabetics

You will need a 9″ pie crust brushed with egg whites, ¼ cup whipping cream, ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of fruit-sweet raspberry jam or syrup, ½ pint of fresh, rinsed raspberries, 1 packet of Equal or NutraSweet, 1/3 cup of fat free or light cream cheese, 2/3 cup of partially skin ricotta cheese, ¾ cup of milk, 1 4-serving package of instant sugar-free chocolate pudding, and a mint sprig to decorate each slice.

To make the Creamy Raspberry Filling, first beat the whipping cream. When it is nearly stiff, add the vanilla and a tablespoon of the strained raspberry jam or syrup. Save one berry for the garnish, and fold the remainder of the fresh raspberries and the Equal into the mix. Spread the filling evenly over the bottom of the baked pie shell.

To make the Chocolate Raspberry Mousse, blend the following thoroughly in a blender or food processor: The cream cheese, ricotta cheese and ½ cup of raspberry jam or syrup. When the mixture is smooth and no seeds are detected, hand stir in the milk. Beat in the chocolate pudding powder, only until it is thoroughly mixed. Pour the mousse mixture

Winter Grilling Tips

At our test kitchen we’re always working out of season. That means that we develop turkey recipes all summer for winter publications and then grill all through February for summer magazine articles. (In the picture above that’s recipe tester Rob Heidenreich and test kitchen manager Sabrina Falone’s arm cooking up summer recipes last week).

After years of shovelling snow off the patio to spend the day grilling, we’ve become savvy and safe cold-weather grillers. Here are our tips for cold-weather grilling success:

  1. Gas grills with higher BUT ratings heat up quickly even when it’s very cold so if you’re purchasing a gas grill and know that you want to use it in cold weather, opt for a unit with a BTU rating per square inch that is higher than 125.
  2. If you haven’t used the grill recently, check all gas lines, burners and jets for possible blockages. Insects such as spiders may pick these places to build cocoons for the winter and their homes will prevent fuel from flowing freely to the burners.
  3. Avoid wearing scarves or wide-sleeved jackets that may dangle into the flames and catch fire. Instead, opt for snugly fitted sleeves

Hamdog

The story made me think about other incongruous food combinations. Salads used to be simply lettuce with salad dressing. Over time, other raw vegetables made their way into salads. Now, people commonly put meat in their salad. Thus, we have tuna salad, chicken salad, fish salad, and we also have fruit salad. But “hamdog” seems to have crossed some line of respect. It is a presentation of two different critter meats. I say two, but who really knows what critter is in a hot dog?

Would you go to a fine restaurant and order “lambkin?” That would be lamb with chicken. How about “horsenpfeffer” (horse meat and rabbit stew)? They do eat horse meat in some countries. There is no reason why a meat-on-meat culinary creation cannot come to America from any country if the Australians can send us “hamdog.” In fact, the possibilities of what critter meat is in a hot dog expand greatly when you consider what Australian critter meats might be put in one of those.

My mom likes to eat fried chicken livers. Could “hamdog” inspire the combining of organ meats from different animals? If you are a vegan you may puke
