Specialty Dishes and the Cookware Required to Make Them

While many dishes can be prepared in traditional skillets, roasting pans, Dutch ovens and saucepans, there are a few specialty dishes that require their own equipment. Paella is one such dish. This Spanish standby is most delicious when prepared in an authentic paella pan. However, not every pan is created alike, so keep this guide and other cookware reviews that you read online in mind when shopping.

These pans are round and look similar to a skillet, but instead of having one long handle and a shorter one, they have two short handles. The sides are slanted and usually about one and one half inches tall. An authentic paella pan is made from carbon steel. This material delivers even heating, which is very important since paella is not stirred while being prepared. You should look for a pan with handles that do not heat during cooking. Zinc is commonly used for this purpose. If you run across a paella non-stick pan in your shopping, proceed with caution. While you may be able to make a delicious dish with this type of pan, it probably does not develop the well-loved crust on the bottom as authentic paella does. As always, read cookware user reviews before you purchase, so you know what problems to look out for with your product.

kitchen faves

Paella is a delicious dish that is easily mastered once you have the right equipment. Get yourself a heavy-duty pan and start cooking paella. Whether you prefer chorizo, prawns or chicken, it is sure to taste delightful.

Thoughts on Mara-Clara

Hmm, just watched today episode.  I’m not really a fan of Mara Clara but i do watch them from time to time. I just could not help myself not to comment on today’s episode.  So, we all know Mara would not die very suddenly because she is the main lead of the show but come to think of it, it’s very Filipino script, the actress get an amnesia and forget who she was and later on things will change, just like the usual script, nothing new.  What i remember, the episodes were really different from the old Mara Clara!  I don’t know why they change it but i think they just want to have something new to offer but ending up, still the same!

Better Bathrooms

What do you think of a bathroom with a jacuzzi, that would be excellent or maybe a complete bathroom accessories on which you will wish you can stay there for hours and hours.  Since my early years our bathroom is one my favorite room in our house, not just because i spend so many time on it but it became my comfort zone, clearing my mind and spending time to ease my feelings.  I wonder if anyone of you feel the same way i felt but it really help me a lot and i feel secured just sitting there for some time to release my tears.

I dream of having a beautiful bathroom just like the bathroom of a big luxury hotel with complete accessories on it and a fresh flower floating on the jacuzzi.  That would be so wonderful and mesmerizing to the eyes. Lucky me, all these  beautiful treats can be found in one site, offer the best and quality accessories for your bathroom and another good thing on it is you can buy them on a very affordable price.  So, if your planning to renovate your bathroom, you should check there site. I know you can find the things you wanted.

I won an accommodation at Microtel Inn courtesy of Hitabargain

Do you remember my post about Hit a Bargain contest , a free accommodation at the famous Microtel Inn and Suites at Boracay worth Php. 35,100.00? Well my hard work pays off and i am one of the winner of the 3 days and 2 nights free accommodation with free breakfast.

At first, i could not believe the good news  but when i have seen the result from their blog page, the only word i can say is wow!

I am looking forward in this opportunity. Thank you again Hit a Bargain and Microtel Inn for this wonderful gift.

A winner inside me

Yes, every each of us is a born winner and we can only achieve the most  of it if we know how to find and grasp it in our hands.  Although winning is not everything, it makes our life happier and fulfilling.

Just look like at Jayson’s Winning story, his a winner in every way because he think he is one and he is one sure lucky guy.  That’s why, starting from now, i would release the positive mind and good side of the coin and say my mantra, I am a winner, i will win and i will achieve the things i only dream before!  Maybe in due time, i can have a brand new house nor our dream car or maybe the trip we always wanted to have but for now let me share with you my fair share of winnings.

I could not say, i am a talented girl , honestly, I don’t know how to sing, dance , or play even a single musical instrument and I am not a genius too(LOL) but so lucky to have a full scholarship for my secondary years and i always hate mathematics but i believe i am good in acting. I used to join plays and acting contests in our schools.  I am not really good in english but i know how to express myself if i was given the task to do so. I love debates, oratorical and i always join extemporaneous speech contest and was lucky to win several of them from my elementary to college years. I even remember joining a slogan contest which i won a trophy and a cash prize of Php. 1,000.00. Although it is not that much but the happiness that gave me is more than the amount itself.

I am not good at sport considering that i am frail and weak in my school days, i used to be in the clinic all the time because of nose bleeding and frequent dizziness, that’s why i am always exempted on joining sport activities but in one time, i join our cheering  team and because i am thin, i was the one on top of the big pyramid, with bruises and sprains, i survived and we were able to win the first prize.

Although, i am not that beautiful or so adorable or with that beautiful  body  but when I was in college I joined the Ms. Commerce contest because of my guts and wits , I was lucky to win too.

Now, i love joining different online contest (but not really the one with all the voting galore because my powers and my lists of friends could not make it). I only stick with the one who needs some luck and some artistic hands too and i was happy that i was able to win some of them.

Tuesday Couch Potatoes – Behind Bars

I have seen many movies like this but one particular movie i like most is the Escape from Alcatraz portrayed by Clint Eastwood.  This movie was actually based from  the story of Frank Morris whom they say that the only successful man who were able to escape the Great Alcatraz or “The Rock”.

Although the penitentiary boasts that no prisoners were really able to escape Alcatraz, I can say that we really can’t tell.

Most of the famous prisoners of Alcatraz were Al Capone, Alvin “Creepy Karpis” Karpowicz, James “Whitey” Bulger and Clarence Carnes, also known as the Choctaw Kid.

Alcatraz already seized their operation on holding prisoners since 1963 but visitors and tourists now can visit the place through a ferry boat/tour around the island and it is now consider as one of their national historic site /Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

If given a chance, i would really like to visit this island.  It could be kind of creepy because of the belief that their are many wandering souls and ghosts their but I really wanted to see what’s really inside that famous Alcatraz.

How about you?
