As a food enthusiastic, I have a habit of collecting recipe books. However, now this habit has changed and I have downloaded lot of Mobile Apps which are related with cooking. I have the habit of referring these Apps even during traveling. Top Chef University To-Go is a real online culinary academy which I am really attracted.

Before I taste this tea, I was attracted to its name. I was day dreaming around the name ‘Sun Moon Lake’. Just imagine having a cup of tea in a calm evening beside a lake watching the sunset!
I started to write this review while sipping another cup of Sun Moon Lake Black Tea. The leaves of this tea are very sharp and appear long. However it was smooth on my hand and gave a floral fresh scent when open the pack.

Here is a fun & easy way to cut shapes in food. Recently I received square and heart-shaped cutters from FunBites to try and review. In this post, I am going to post my experience with Square shaped set. They named it as FunBites-Cube it!
Its really fun to use it. Earlier I used cookie cutters or knife to cut sandwich into small pieces. I had to do it one by one. But using this set, it is easy to slice a sandwich into small pieces in one try.

A clean home is a responsibility of every woman. We need a clean home with no toxic and germs. But, how many toxic ingredients we touch every day?
Have you ever checked and considered about the ingredients of your cleaning products in the pantry? Usually I try to avoid products which contains harmful toxic agents such as ‘Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) ,1,4-dioxane ,NPE (nonylphenol ethoxylate) ,Phosphates’. But these are the widely used detergent present in many cleaning items. These ingredients can be irritating to the eyes and skin. Also they are identified as cancer-causing chemicals which even some manufacturers don’t list on the label. It is impossible to avoid all these chemicals if we buy artificial cleaning products.

Vemma Premix is a nutrition formula that contains 12 full-spectrum vitamins, over 65 plant-sourced minerals, wildcrafted mangosteen including the rind, organic glyconutrient-rich aloe vera and organic decaffeinated green tea .
For a healthy life, it is necessary to take essential vitamins & minerals every day. Other than food supplements, most of us are used to take vitamin supplements daily. Truly speaking, I have lots of vitamins & minerals in separate bottles, vitamin E, Vitamin C, Folic Acid, Iron, calcium, Vitamin A etc etc. I take these supplements daily or time to time, however most of the time I forget to take. Sometimes I have to throw the bottles as they are expired. In that case, how about a formula which consists of daily essential minerals & vitamins? This is the interesting fact I found about Vemma Premix.

This biscuit fingers pudding is easy to prepare. However it will take about 6 hours to prepare this.
I found this recipe from a book & this is another yummy recipe from it.The name of the book is ‘Pudding Cake’ published by 'One Publisher' (A Publisher from Malaysia)
Because the recipe is with using cocoa powder, it is full of chocolate taste together with the taste of biscuit.
Ingredients (enough to fill 2-3 small glasses)
Unflavoured gelatin 4 tbspn (check your package details too for amount need )
Hot water 2 cups
1 tbspn dark cocoa powder
Biscuit fingers 10- 15 numbers
2-3 small glasses as moulds
Mix ingredient A together adding hot water slowly. Whisk using a fork to avoid lumps. Bring it to boil.
Pour this mixture into glasses, but make glasses to fill half.
Allow to cool & keep in fridge to set completely.
This will take about 2-3 hours to set completely. Remember to shake the remaining mixture time to time for not to allow setting.
After it is set almost, take out & insert biscuit fingers. Insert more fingers if you like, I used 5 fingers per glass.
Now fill the glasses with remaining mixture.
Keep the glasses inside the fridge & allow setting. This will take another 2-3 hours.
Once it is set, remove to a plate. Using a flat spatula, remove the pudding from the sides of the glasses. Then it is easy to remove.
Cut into slices.
Serve & Enjoy!!
