Hi! The recipes look yummy, I will try to prepare the Visayan Kinilaw. I wish shrimps weren't as expensive as they are where I currently reside.

I have a vacuum sealer also, which is FoodSaver v4880 – the great appliance for my kitchen. As you said, my vauum sealer also helped me very good food preservation. It helps me to preserve most of the food for my family from day to day. I think that any family should have a vacuum sealer machine. It is especially useful in the hot summer.
Thank you so much!

The ash left after the wood burns in a stove, fire place or bonfire is called wood ash and can be used as a natural fertilizer for your garden plants.
There are large benefits of wood ash in garden. They can provide nutritional benefits to the plants. The soil in which the plant grows may be low in nutrients since they are used for a long time and the soil becomes rough with less nutrition. In such condition it is always preferred to use natural

If you have the source, always try to opt for organic! By doing so, you’re not only getting healthy supplements but also you are standing against paying into a system that mistreats the planet with synthetic chemicals.

I do love stews , they need little attention, they always turn out well and the whole family appreciates their warming quality, flavour and goodness. Never seen star anise used though, fab idea, isn't it Chinese cooking that uses Anise?

in reply to: The Bitter Melon Truth
Good ariticle. I am diabetic II and found out about the bitter melon from some Indian friends while I was working in the Middle East. It took a couple of times to get use to the taste, but self testing myself and doing the A1C testing shows that my blood suger is getting well in control. Now here in the US I had to find a place to get them and a friend told me about the Asian Market and off I went. Now they know me by first name and I go regularly.
