No Comments

We all love a good old hot dog. A taste that we are way too familiar with, one that has been with us on those sunny mornings or those rainy evenings and especially those nights when the family would decide to have a barbeque dinner out in the backyard.

But now is the time to try something fresh. Sure we will continue to love the classic hotdog but to mix it up a little here and there, every now and then is essential. As they say, change is the only constant in the world.

Right Course To Choose The Right Colour

No Comments

We all love renovating our house but then we get stuck when it comes to choosing the right colors, of course choosing the color is a little difficult so what you can do is decide which vibe you want and the rest you can leave on this article 

 

Deep Cognac and Teal

These two colors are known for giving a sophisticated look to the room, these two work amazingly when together, it’s a wonderful pair and you can simply pair teal with mustard ( the one which has a soft tone) or with saddle brown, you can add in whites, grays and brown and the result would be something amazing as all of these neutral tones complement each other and not compete with each other. 

Chartreuse, Orange, and Brown

These three colors are like a group of three best friends, brown works as an ideal backdrop for orange and chartreuse, people don’t like steeping in orange but they do identify themselves with it as it is a color of individuality and when it comes to chartreuse is very much underrated, by the way just like Andrew I too would suggest you maintain a distance from pastel orange as its a little too wimpy. 

Mint and Emerald

You can simply pair green with any other color easily as it is versatile in nature, the green color is known for creating interest no matter in  which room you’re using it, if you are planning to pair mint and emerald then let me tell you its a nice choice as this pair is going to bring freshness and brightness to the room, if you are wishing for a masculine vibe then go with the pair of deep green and brown. 

Taupe, Dusty purple and cream

If you wish to have a soothing and monochromatic look then you must go for this trio  

Wood, Navy blue, and white 

Another trio for you, this trio forms an ideal color palette, the contrast in between white and navy blue is the best one can ask for, this trio does not overshadow the items this trio allows them to make their own identity and sine, in this trio you can add any other color of your choice as well and this trio still won’t overshadow them, if you wish to give your room a bright, fresh and clean look then add a metallic color. 

Green and yellow

Green and yellow is a pair from the 70’s and that’s why it is known for its popping nature, this duo does wonders as both the colors are little derivate from each other, if you would look at the palette then you would realize that both these colors belong the same slot, with these colors you really need to have some item which has a metallic color as light colors compliment dark colors and dark colors compliment light colors, they work hand in hand, the metallic item can give the dimension it really requires, make sure that you do not forget to work on the pattern, do not worry about the pattern if you really wish to have a retro look 

7 Protein Rich Products

No Comments

Proteins are a must when it comes to building muscles as when we lift weight some of our muscle fibers get damaged and to repair them we all as humans require protein, for being muscles not only protein is required but also require some amino acids 

  1. The number one product in the list of the best muscle building products is FISH, for instance, salmon, salmon is popularly known as the powerhouse of protein as it alone contains about twenty-five grams of protein per hundred grams, somebody who wishes to build muscles must eat salmon as it is not only rich in protein but in other important nutrients too, for instance, vitamin D, omega-3, and monounsaturated fats.
  2. Hello to the chicken lover there are some people out there in the world who do not prefer fish but love chicken,itsa good news for all of them, hundred grams of white meat equals to thirty-one grams of protein other than protein it contains 04 grams of fat as well. 
  3. Some of us really wish to gain muscles but we are just way too lazy to cook all the time for the moments where you do not wish to cook or put a lot of efforts you can eat eggs, each egg easily provides about five to six grams of protein, you can boil eggs or have them raw.
  4. Vegetarians too have the right to gain muscles, isn’t it? if you’re a vegetarian it feels as if there is nothing that you can eat to gain muscles but then there are things which you can eat you just need the right eye to see it, here m talking about soy, in the market soya milk is available, tofu is available other than these just one cup of soybean (of course cooked) contain about twenty grams of proteins.
  5. Red meat is the answer to all your questions, a hundred grams of ground beef equals to twenty-seven grams of protein and it eventuality eleven grams of fat and around two hundred calories other than all of this beef offers us iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. 
  6. Milk in its purest form provides about twenty grams of protein per hundred grams, it contains all the important amino acids and you can even mix it with whey protein, as adults, we forget the importance of milk, adults require milk as much as children require it.
  7. Hello to the vegetarians again this time I’m talking about the almonds, one-fourth of a cup of almonds equals to about eight grams of protein and hey it’s more than what a boiled egg has to offer, yes right now the vegans can smile, almonds not only offer a good amount of protein but also offer magnesium and monounsaturated fats.
  8. A hundred grams of oysters contains about twenty grams of protein and just 05-grams fat, Pacific oysters are more like weight-lifters, it is full of zinc and magnesium. 

Our list of the top products ends here.

Nine Steps To World Best Cheese

No Comments

Within nine steps you can make the world’s best cheese, all you required for making the world’s best cheese is just thirty minutes and about four ingredients.

Ingredients required 

  • Milk ( I would suggest you use whole milk) 
  • Rennet (do not worry about from where you can buy this ingredient this particular ingredient is easily available only) 
  • salt 
  • citric acid 

Directions 

  1. Take a bowl and add one cup full of water to it after adding water add one and a half teaspoon of citric acid, take another bowl fill it with one-fourth of a cup of water and add rennet (one-fourth of a teaspoon).
  2. Take Pot (it must be large and heavy as well), fill the pot with one gallon of milk and pour the citric mixture in the pot, once done with pouring place the pot on your stove, turn your stove on and then heat it until it reaches ninety degrees, use a thermometer, once it reaches the right temperature turn the stove off and add the liquid rennet mixture and stir for half a minutes, after stirring cover the mixture and keep it aside for about five minutes
  3. After five minutes the mixture would turn into a totally different texture (something like gelatin) if the texture still seems to be in a liquid form then leave the mixture for another five minutes, once the mixture is properly set, take a spatula and cut the curd, make sure that the spatula is long enough as it needs to reach all the way to the bottom, the cuts that you are going make need to be both horizontal and vertical.
  4. Time to place the pot again on the stove,its time we cook the curd, set the leave of heat at medium and every now and then stir the curd while cooking it, use a thermometer you need to keep cooking it until it reaches the one hundred and five degrees, once it reaches the right temperature turn off the stove, keep the pot aside for about five to six minutes and between those six minutes do not forget to stir occasionally. 
  5. Now the curd needs to be separated from the way, use a sieve to separate both of them, dip the sieve in the pot, try draining as much of whey as possible.
  6. Take another pot fill it with water, use thermometer and once it reaches one hundred and eighty-five degrees turn the heat off, now put the curd which you just separated from the way into a strainer and then put that strainer in the water you just heated, now wear your gloves and fold the curd.
  7. Time to add salt, add salt and then fold it using your hands, stretch it until the texture becomes smooth.
  8. Time to give the desired shape to your cheese all you need to do is pull its edges, you can make a whole ball or multiple small ones. For making sure that it stays in the same shape put it in a bowl full of ice cold water for at least four to five minutes
  9. Congratulations you have reached the last step now all you need to do is use the cheese that you have made on your own

More About Dogs

No Comments

Dogs are known for being our best friends and on the other hand, they are actually known for knocking their food off and for creating a mess 

  1. You must go for a station in which you can simply store food as well and when you have a nice food station it means no mess, believe it or not, most of the dogs are as clumsy as we were when we were kids, we grow up dogs do not they simply grow when comes to the body but by heart they stay as little puppies only so for your furball get a food station which comes with a chest as it would help you in hiding away all the treats and food. 
  2. If you can store the treats somewhere and do not require the station with a chest, and if you are looking for something which is actually elegant and simple then why not just build one on your own for your loved one it would cost you less than fifteen dollar, you would need a sandpaper, elbow grease (the small one), a jigsaw and some nice paint.
  3. If you have a vintage suitcase then you can simply convert it into a dream food station, how?for the countertop, you can use wood, cut out two circles and place water and food bowl in those circles, that’s all I swear on god people are going to be jealous of it and your dog would be proud of you. 
  4. We, humans, prefer class over anything then why not choose the class when it comes to the furball, all you need to do is buy a shelf (a standard one), cut it a little so that you can place the bowls in it and to make the stand use candle holders (yes m talking about the cups), paint it black or dark brown.
  5. Why not make a station out of your shelves in the kitchen, your dog is a part of your family and has all the rights that you have, for this all you would require is a jigsaw that too just for cutting the perfect circle.
  6. If you have a picnic basket that you do not use then convert it into a station and it would not even cost you two dollars, that’s how cheap it can be all you need to do is commit ten to fifteen minutes and use some of your imagination
  7. Some people prefer being simple and so do some dogs then why go over the board you can simply use a shelf which can actually fit in with the rest of the kitchen.

There is one thing common to all the suggestion, yes I think you’re thinking in the right direction I’m actually talking about the jigsaw, all you need is jigsaw as the main product with creativity in handy, Your efforts matter and in the end the goal of a food station matter. If you have some suggestion leave us a comment in the section below and do tell us if your dog like the new food station
