Bake Whole Salmon Recipe

I got this from BBC recipe and had a go with it on boxing day, the fish was lovely and it tasted so good! It is so easy to prepare and the ingredients are easy to find as well, so even if you are not an expert cook, like me, you too can have a go with it.

• 1 whole salmon, 3-4kg/6.5-10lb in weight, gutted and cleaned
• 4 sprigs fresh parsley
• ½ lemon, sliced
• 2 bay leaves
• 150ml/5fl oz dry white wine
• 2 tbsp vegetable oil

Preparation method
1. Heat the oven to 190C/375F/Gas 5.
2. Take 2 large sheets of foil and place on top of each other in a roasting tin. Spread the oil on the foil and place the salmon on top.
3. Put the parsley, lemon slices and bay leaves into the body cavity. Fold the edges of the foil together but just before sealing, pour in the wine.
4. Bake the fish for 50-60 minutes.
5. Serve hot or cold. If you want to serve it cold, allow the fish to cool in the parcel and then gently peel off the skin and garnish with thinly sliced cucumber and watercress.

I have here some photos of the said Salmon, note that I am only just starting to cook and not an expert so please bear with me. The skin of the fish came off when it was cooked but it did taste and smells so good.

Choosing a Good Razor

My husband has a sensitive skin but over the 5 years of being married to him I only saw him once with razor burns! Now, he believes that a bad choice of razor is the main factor of getting those razor bumps and cuts, so to avoid those from getting into your skin, here is a guide of choosing a good razor.

• If you have a problem with razor burns or if you have a sensitive skin like my husband, a safety razor is recommended. The reason for this is that this razor gives an easy control of directions and it gives a better control of the pressure of the razor hitting the skin.

• If you prefer to choose an electric razor, the best thing to get is a modern type, the one which you can use a shaving cream with.

Now when choosing the right blades, there are razors with 4 blades, 3 blades, 2 blades as well as 1 blade, but a razor with 2 blades is recommended for someone who has a sensitive skin! Why? Well, it is because the 3 and 4 blades give so much blade contact on the skin which can cause razor burns and razor bumps too.

For some they may recommend that you experiment by using deferent razors when shaving to see which one suits you best, but my husband would always recommend a safety razor, especially to those who have sensitive skin.

Saving water at home

I got this from the campaign of the water company I am subscribing and found these tips very helpful. On the website of the water company, they sell some device that would help save water together with these tips, but I think by just doing these steps without any device used would save water anyway, so we do not really need to buy anything, just follow these water saving tips:

• Turning the tap off whilst brushing your teeth- it is an easy way to save water, in fact this one simple action can save up to ten litres of water each time you brush. Or you could use a cup!

• Save water and save energy by choosing a shower instead of a bath- They say that 15,000 litres of water per year could be saved if you choose this quick refreshing way to get cleaned.

• Make sure that every time you fill your washing machine or dishwasher it is fully loaded before you start it- because a two half loads will use more water than one full load.

• A modern dishwasher can use as little as 10 litres per cycle whereas an older style can use a massive 40 litres. When using your dishwasher, use the quick wash function if your pots and pans aren't really dirty.

• If you are waiting for the tap to run hot, collect the water and use it on your plants. Instead of waiting for it to run freezing cold, collect drinking water in a jug and store it in the fridge for a refreshing drink.

• Water your garden with a watering can rather than use a hosepipe or a sprinkler- a sprinkler can use as much water as a family of four uses in one day. If you do use a hose pipe fit a trigger gun attachment which allows you to control the flow of water more carefully.

Ho to Make Traditional Toffee Apples

This is good for 6 persons, however you can do as many as you want, if you got more apples and ingredients.

How to Carving A Pumpkin Face

You will need:
A pen
And a little bit of imagination

To prepare:

1. Decide on the design of your pumpkin face, then choose a size and shape of your pumpkin. By up-ending the pumpkin, you can use the stalk as a nose.

2. Draw the face on with a marker pen, then cut off the top with a knife to make a lid. Scoop out the seeds with the spoon and remove flesh with a knife (children should be supervised when handling knives).

3. Use a very sharp knife to cut along the marker pen lines. Steady the pumpkin with your other hand.

4. Add the finishing touches. Example: you could drape pumpkin fibres and seeds over the head to look like freakish hair. Have fun!

Goatee Style Shaving Tips

I do not have a beard, but I do know how to shave a men’s goatee style beard as this has always been my husband’s preferred style. Now, I do shave him from time to time and been doing great! So if you want, you can follow these instructions of a good goatee style Shaving tips.

• First is to trim your beard into a shorter length using a clipper to a length in which the razor can handle.

• Then using shaving oil, rub it on your skin where the facial hair is. The purpose of the shave oil is that it allows you to shave smoothly and see the details as well as making your skin a little softer.

• Pre determined the desired size of the goatee and shave the goatee up to that boarder.

• Remember that the goatee should not go pass the smile line!

• Using a sharp razor, begin shaving the sides of your face going all the way to about a quarter inch to where you would like the goatee to begin.

• Then proceed to your neck and to your lower draw area doing the same thing, at this point you should have your goatee.

• Now, carefully shave along one side of your beard.

• Then double check the width and shave the other side accordingly.

• Check closely if both sides are even.

• Then move on to the underside of your goatee and trim up the edge until it is clean and smooth.

So there you go, good luck on your new goatee look!

Getting rid of Dark circles around the eyes

The dark circles around eyes are easy to get rid of, I have here 2 techniques and one of them might sound a little ridiculous as you need to use a spoon, but it does works for me! So here they are:

1. The Spoon Technique: puff 2 spoons inside the refrigerator for 30 minutes, just until it is nice and cool and then place it underneath the eyes or where the dark circle is located. The cool sensation the spoon brings around the eyes will immediately get rid of the dark circles. Now, the only thing about this is that this only works great for light dark circles which are common results of a hangover or if you just had a couple of restless night that resulted to dark circles.

2. The second technique is the cucumber technique- for best result, puff the cucumber in the refrigerator for 2 hours, then slice it thinly and put it on your eyes while you are relaxing, maybe 1 to 2 hours, but I would not recommend it over night.

Legal mood enhancing products sold in USA

Depress, stress and anxiety. These are the most common feelings people suffers now a day and the feeling of not knowing how to cope up with it is so terrible! Tell you, I have a friend who occasionally suffers from depression and believe me it is hard to get along with her. Well, lately I was surprised to see her in a party, totally different to what she is! She stands out in the party and just so cool to be around people. So I ask her how she is doing and she told me, she is doing well and was able to have a good time since she had been taking Party enhancers from Herbal City LLC. At first I was worried that this might not be good for her, so when I got back home I phone up her family and ask them about it. They actually knew everything and her mother told me that this product she had been using is not illegal and it does not harm humans, basically it is just a mood enhancing herbal product. I was still hesitant that time so I look it out on the net to see if they got a sort of form or an approve seal that this is not illegal and I did! Anyway, I am just happy to know that she found something that enhances her mood and that the product she is using is a Planet Legal Herb and D.EA approved.

To roast a whole chicken using an oven

Here is a simple instruction on how to oven cook/ roast a whole chicken:

From Chilled/Ambient
TO ROAST: Preheat fan assisted oven to 180°C/375°F/Gas Mark 6.
Remove all packaging
Pull out legs to open cavity
remove at the knuckle and rub oil sparingly into the skin and inside cavity and season both inside and out with salt & pepper.
Place in a roasting dish and cook for 40 minutes per kg plus an additional 20 minutes. Baste occasionally during cooking.

To ensure the chicken (Leg and Breast) is cooked insert a skewer into the thickest part of the meat. If the juices run clear, not pink, it is fully cooked through. Remove from the oven, place on a serving plate and rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before carving. This will let the chicken relax and the juices settle to enhance the eating quality.

Fully furnished Apartment for Rent in Calgary Canada

Looking for a fully furnished apartment in Calgary? Then I would recommend that you check out the website called This is actually where my sister got her lovely home; it is a modern apartment, close to the city Centre, equipped with furniture’s and appliances and to top it all, it is immaculately clean!

To be honest, looking for an apartment online is the easiest thing to do, especially on the website given. They got all the information listed, like the type of property for rent, photos of the property, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, size of the whole area, furnishings and appliances, including special features of the apartment/house, the monthly rental and deposit, together with the date of availability and contact number with the name of the person in charge of the letting.

Just like what my sister did, and she is now very happy with her new home and I hope you will be too.

Removing coffee stain on a shirt

Removing a coffee stain is very easy and it does not take long to get rid of it! I have actually done it a couple of times with my husband’s shirt as well as mine, as we do love drinking coffee and sometime do get a little accidents with coffee spillage on shirts and trouser/pants.

To get the coffee stain off, you will need:
• Bicarbonate soda/ baking soda
• Warm water
• White vinegar/ distilled vinegar

Soak the stained shirt on warm water with a spoonful amount of bicarbonate soda/ baking soda.

Wash it using your hands and rinse it with a hot water but please check out the label of your clothes on how hot your fabric can take.
After doing so, you can wash it again using a detergent powder, rinse and let it dry.

Now, if it is a big dried coffee stain, you need a tougher solution, and you will need white distilled vinegar to get rid of the stain. Just soak your shirt on warm water with a little amount of distilled vinegar and wash it with your hands, rinse well and wash it again for the last time to get rid of the vinegar smell, this time using a detergent powder, rinse and let it dry.

It could be a conservatory glass door, windows, backyard glass door, and glass table or even wardrobe mirror that little children usually loves to touch and do their sort of hand printing after eating their meal.

Cleaning your child’s stuff toys does not need to be costly, all you need to do is put the stuff toy inside a pillow case and pin it or tie it.

Washing a carpet floor

This is my DIY technique in washing a carpet floor.

What you need:
• Bucket
• Sponge
• Washing powder

What to do:
Fill the bucket with warm water
Add a little amount of washing powder and mix it until it bubbles
Dip the sponge on it and squeeze
Then wipe the surface of the floor carpet using the sponge.
It is just like washing a car, but please do not put too much water on the sponge as this will result to a very wet carpet and it would take a long time to dry it.
There is no need to rinse it after doing this procedure, just leave it to dry.

This procedure is good for taking dried food stains on the floor carpet, but if your carpet is heavily stained, it would also be best to use a carpet stain remover.

Cleaning a kitchen floor

You will need:
Dishwashing soap

The best and easiest way to clean a vinyl or tiled kitchen floor is to get a bucket and mop. Depending on your floor area, you may put an almost full amount of water in the bucket or half of a bucket of water in it. Then add a little amount of bleach into the water inside the bucket, would probably best to use the top cap of the bleach bottle as a measuring device, so one top cap is equal to a bucket of water, then also add a little amount of dishwashing liquid onto it, then use the mop in mixing this together. The purpose of combining the bleach and the dishwashing liquid is to clean and also disinfect your floor at the same time, and there is no need to rinse it after mopping in this procedure.

How to grind a coffee beans

Today I bought packets of 2 Columbian coffee beans thinking it was the ground one and when I got home I was very disappointed as it was coffee beans and I do not have a coffee grinding machine. I tried crushing the coffee beans with the end of the rolling pin on a bowl, took ages to crush half of a bag, however it was not fine enough that when I tried brewing it, it tasted so weak. I do not really want to go back to the shop and have the one of the un-opened coffee bags replaced as the petrol would cost more than the coffee price. But anyway, I found a great solution to grinding coffee beans, I use a blender! It only took a minute to grind the whole bag (227g) of coffee beans and got the perfect grain. So if you do not have a coffee grinding machine, try a blender, it does the job well!

Coffee beans

Grinding it using a blender

After grinding the coffee beans using a blender, the result is the same as the ones you get on a packet of ground coffee.

• Once the potato reduces its size due to scrubbing, use the other half slice potato to do the same procedure.
• You will then see that the rust on the wok surface is slowly coming off
• Finally rinse with warm water and see the difference.

Removing Oils spills from carpets and fabrics

I am a big fan of Kim and Aggie and I always watch their TV program to get tips on house cleaning so I could use some of their economical procedure. Their procedure usually works well and these are my favorite and probably the most useful thing everyone should know, so I am sharing this with you.

To clean or remove oils, grease, and fats

• From carpets: Place kitchen towel over the spill and apply a cool iron to the other side to draw the grease up into the paper. Shampoo the carpet.
• From fabric: Use a pre-wash stain treatment or rub liquid laundry detergent into the fabric before washing in as hot a wash as the fabric can take. If the stain is persistent, repeat the process.
• From upholstery: Cover the stain with talcum powder. Allow to dry then vacuum off. If the stain persists, try dabbing with methylated spirits (test on an inconspicuous area first) or a proprietary stain remover.

Washing a wool coat

Most Woolen clothes are dry clean only as stated at the labels, but I have washed a couple of woollen clothes myself, mainly coats and jumpers using a washing machine and it turned out ok. The wool material on the coat has not been affected or damage with how I washed it myself and here is how I do it:

• Put your wool coat or jacket inside a white pillow case and tie the tip of the pillow case. If you coat is too big to get into a pillow case you can use an old yet clean white bed sheet to wrap your coat, the best thing to do is make a sack out of it and put your coat inside then tie the end of the sack.

• Put it inside the washing machine.

• Put a little amount of washing machine detergent and a tiny amount of fabric conditioner.

• Wash it in the most gently setting on the washing machine and should be washed on cold water. Some new washing machine has this wool wash feature, so if you got this, you might as well use it using the same procedure above.

• Spin dry. Do not use the tumble dryer machine as this might cause shrinkage.

• Once done, take it out of the washing machine and open the sack or pillow case to get your coat out and leave it to dry indoors.

• You can iron it when it is almost dry by using an old white bed sheet. Put it over or on top the coat, and then run the iron on the sheet on top of the coat.

But be aware that woolen materials are very delicate as it could shrink when not properly washed or the worst you could ruined it, so I would advise that if your coat, jacket or sweater is very expensive, you could just have it professionally washed so you will not regret if anything happens to it!

Using a fabric dye for hand wash

I recently Dye my daughters hat using a fabric dye for hand use and it turned out great! It was a lovely hat made of cotton and a polyester lining, the outer shell which is cotton has totally absorb all the color, but sad to say the polyester lining was not that great. Anyway, if you want to dye a piece of cloth using a fabric dye for hand use it is best to know that there are some fabric that are not suitable to dye and these are fabric that are pure polyester, acrylic, nylon, and fabric that has special finishes. A fabric hand dye for hand use is usually suitable for cotton, linen and viscose, wool and silk and here is the direction of how to use it.

• You will need a 250g of salt and a rubber gloves.

• Weigh dry fabric to check that you have sufficient dye. Wash thoroughly, even if new, to remove stains or dressings which may not be visible to the eye. Leave damp.

• Wearing rubber gloves, empty full contents of pack into 500ml of warm water.

• Fill bowl/stainless steel sink with approx. 6 litres of warm water (40 degrees c).

• Stir in 250g (5tbsp) of salt. Add dye and stir well.

• Submerge fabric in water

• Stir for 15mins. Then stir regularly for 45mins

• Rinse fabric in cold water. Wash in warm water and dry away from direct heat and sunlight.

• Wash separately for first few washes to remove any excess dye.

• Then hang it and leave it to dry.

Note that one pack will dye up to 250g of dry weight fabric (e.g. shirt) to full shade or larger amounts to a lighter shade.

Taking burns off a pan

Getting rid of burn’s in a pan is a bit of a hustle, and you could even spend lots and lots of hours scrubbing them which would sometimes leave a lot of scratches on your pan. There is actually a good solution for that, try using cheap cola, put your burnt pan in a cooker and pour a cola just enough to cover the burn part, it usually takes about two minutes, but depending on the burn, then the acid in the cola will lift off the burnt stuff. After that you can then easily wash it and rinse with water.

To clean a LCD monitor

These are the things you need in cleaning your LCD TV or computer monitor:
• White vinegar
• Distilled water
• 100% pure Cotton cloth

You will not need much of it to clean 1 monitor, so in a small container put a quarter of vinegar and a quarter of distilled water and mix them together. If you do not have distilled water, you can use some ice from the refrigerator and heat it in a pan to make distilled water out of it. Once you’ve mix them together, get a piece of cloth- a pure cotton cloth, and put a little amount of the mixed vinegar and distilled water on it, just enough to make a damp of the cloth. Then wipe it on your LCD TV or LCD monitor. I have been using this procedure for a year now and it does a very good job in cleaning my LDC monitor and best of all, it does not leave any traces of water or dust mark on the monitor.

How to take a gum off kids hair

I know many kids and teenagers have already been in this sticky situation and what parents do, is just snip it out, well I guess it is OK to snip it out if the gum is sticks on the end part of the hair, but what if it sticks near the root of the hair? Well, there are some solutions you can do to get the gum off the hair. Try using a peanut butter, all you do is put peanut butter on the area around where the gum got stuck, then rub it into your hair and around the gum, then you will see the gum crumble as you rub it. Use your finger to tug gently at it until it comes out, and lastly use a fine tooth comb to get the last bits off. Now if you don’t like the smell of the peanut butter on your hair, you can also use coconut or almond oil, baby oil, or sun block. If you don’t have this stuff, you can also use a mayo or butter and use the same procedure.
