Lately I have been searching around on Amazon UK to find sweet treats that are different from the mainstream, but still come from sources not considered “sketchy”.
Here is what I have found to date:
Tempted? Continue reading “Sweet Treats on Amazon UK”
Today I saw the latest proof that veganism is extremely bad for the health…….
I remember seeing somewhere recently that cooking air fryer recipes in an air fryer kitchen gadget has apparently fallen out of favour.
In it’s place the humble old microwave is apparently the new money saving cooking trend. There are many good ones available from brands such as Panasonic, Samsung, Toshiba and Sharp.
Before these, the cooking trend was Sous Vide Recipes using a Sous Vide machine gadget that looks like a glorified fish tank heater.
If I remember correctly before that, the cooking trend was for a multi-cooker kitchen gadget that looked like a glorified slow cooker, and you could indeed make slow cooker recipes in the things. Continue reading “Home Cooking Trends 2023”
- Long Grain Rice (about half a cup per person is usually enough)
- Medium / large-ish saucepan
tip: I prefer to use “Tilda Easy cook long grain rice” when doing rice, as it doesn’t go too sticky / PVA glue-like if you accidently leave it cooking too long (unlike some of the cheaper supermarket own-label packets of long grain rice). Uncle Ben’s was good too (until it’s woke name change). Continue reading “How to Cook Rice”
The New Zealand Daily Herald has reported that a Korean student has eaten a $182k piece of artwork at a museum in Seoul.
The artwork appears to consist of a banana sticky-taped to a wall.
The past several days you may have noticed that Anheuser-Busch have been experiencing some backlash for teaming up with a fake woman as part of their latest promotional campaign for Bud Light.
The problem for the company seems to be showing no signs of slowing down, having first being ditched by top music stars including Kid Rock & Travis Tritt (among others).
It is now showing signs of spreading to the general population, with distributors now s***ting kittens at the level of annoyance from consumers fed up with companies jumping on the latest “woke” bandwagon. Continue reading “Budweiser’s Attempts to Go Woke Still Biting Them in the Butt”
This is apparently a very popular question searched for on a well known popular search engine on the interweb.
The answer to the question of How long it takes to boil an egg is fairly simple.
For a soft boiled egg, it generally takes about 3 or 4 minutes, not including the time it takes to get the pan of water up to “cooking speed” before you put the egg in it: basically when the water appears to start to bubble is when it is boiling, and suitable for boiling things such as an egg for a set period of time.

The time is fast approaching when it’s the time of year for people to make New Year’s resolutions they probably won’t keep anyway, such as trying to lose weight.
Trying to get fitter and healthier is apparently quite a popular one, but not everyone knows the right way to go about it, and end up struggling to lose weight.
There are many things people think are healthy that aren’t really, and equally a number of things that people think are bad for you that are actually quite good for you as long as you don’t go too nuts with the quantities consumed, or you don’t have allergies to them.
There are many online guru type people completely full of s**t promoting things that are “healthy” which are actually dangerous to the point of being lethal if you try use them to lose weight.
To cut through the bs, I’ve come across 3 books to lose weight that make quite interesting reading, and will set you on a genuine path to a lifestyle that will get you actually fit & healthy, and hopefully lose weight Continue reading “Lose Weight: 3 Books to Help You Get Fitter, Healthier and Lose Weight in 2019”
This is actually easier than it sounds. Normally you boil them in a pan of water for about 3-5minutes.
To do this in a microwave, all you need is…….
1) A Packet of dried Egg Noodles (e.g. Blue Dragon brand)
2) A Kettle full of boiling water
3) A Pyrex Glass Bowl
4) Some flavourings (optional)
5) A Microwave
Put the kettle on to boil (making sure it has water in it), place the nest of noodles in the bottom of the bowl.
At this stage you can add your flavourings to make the noodles more interesting. I like to use curry powder to make curried noodles, but you can also put things like a generous nob of butter, maybe some Oregano…. anything you can think of. You can even Bisto gravy granules to turn the dish into “Noodles in Gravy”, or stock cubes too, though they tend to be a bit salty.
Pour enough boiling water over the noodles to cover them (that’s why you use a bigger bowl for this), and place them in the microwave.
Cook them in the microwave at all power for 3mins 30secs.
Once done, lift the bowl out of the microwave (it’ll be hot), and use a fork to pluck the noodles out of the bowl and to the plate or cereal bowl or whatever you’re serving them in/on.
