phylsfrills: In the Kitchen, busy, busy, busy

Yesterday I was going to take it easy, and maybe do some crafting. Well, the day went sideways and this is what I ended up doing. It started with breakfast this morning. I made everything omelettes with green peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic sausage and cheese. I made hash browns to go with them, as well as some crispy bacon, and topped the omelettes with my home made salsa. Since I needed to make more bread, I got the dough going in the bread machine, and ended up with two loaves of 100% whole wheat bread. Then I decided to make bagels, not one kind but two. First I made cheese bagels, then cinnamon raisin ones. There are lots of pictures in this post, so dial up users beware!

phylsfrills: multi-use cookbook!

I fixed the closet door the other day, all the slats were loose. A little wood glue, my wood clamps and a good wood screw and it’s as good as new. When I screwed it back to the other half, I needed something to hold it in place so this is what I came up with. A multi-use cookbook. Ha ha ha. P.S. No animals were harmed in the making of this blog. Probably not food porn but good for a chuckle.

voxvox1718: Wine Racks: Choosing The Right Wine Rack For You

Wine racks have become something that just about anyone wants to purchase and have within their home. They are supplied in a wide variety of styles, shapes and dimensions to fit just about anyones needs.

Adding one to a home can heighten the homes value and separate it from other homes. It can also help to keep wine fresh, undisturbed and easy to access when you need it. You dont have to be a wine lover to find the value in adding a wine rack of some sort to your home.

Selection: Opting for The Best Wine Rack For You

Since there are so many unique sorts of wine racks to choose from, it makes sense that you would need a little help knowing which is the Best one for you. Here are some of them and a little info that you need about each one.

Top Of The Line: The top of the line wine racks are those that can be custom constructed in a cellar of your home. These are fantastic choices for individuals who have room to add a room in a cool area of the residence and those that adore wine.

They can be custom built out of the wood types of your preference, fitted for the area that you have chosen and shaped in virtually any form that fits your needs. The bad news is that with any customized work you will also have to pay quite a bit more for it.

Metal Wine Racks: For a more fashionable way of displaying your wine, consider a metal wine rack. These are available in a wide range of sizes and can be used to display your wine in a beautiful way, as you would other dcor within your residence.

They are often bought to stand on the floor or they can be purchased as counter top sitters as well. The number of bottles they will hold depends greatly on the size of the wine rack you purchase. Often, they can be bought in the style you are after. The one drawback to these is that you will need to find a location, out of the way of children, to place it.

Hanging Wine Racks: To take care of that problem with room, you can add a wine rack to your wall or hang it from your ceiling. These are great choices when it comes to adding a little style to your kitchen.

Again, they come in a wide variety of sizes and styles, depending on what you like. If you choose these, you will likely get less storage than you would any other method but if you only keep a few bottles on hand, this is ideal.

Environmental Controls: If you are a wine enthusiast, you should consider investing in an environment controlling unit. If you were to build a wine racking setup in a cellar, you would be able to add to it climate control. If you are looking for a way to control the environment in your kitchen, you can do this with a wine chest.

These fit under counters like your dishwasher can or they can be stored above the counter in smaller units. They are a critical appliance for your kitchen. These are much more pricey than wine racking systems but can keep your wine at the best temperature.

Any and all wine racking systems can be bought online. You will find that custom made options as well as those that are a simple hanging racks are offered to you in the sizes and styles that you really want to have. Wine racks are an excellent choice for upgrading your home.

A toast to the perfect wine rack! Please visit our site for more information on metal wine rack products as well as other racks for storage needs.

casualreview: Chicken Madras Recipe

Hi all! I wanted to share a recipe I thought you might like for Chicken Madras. It's part of a neat feature called Dinner and a Game at our website, Casual Review (original article) written by our resident chef and sweetheart, Sara Schweid, but I'm reprinting it here for everyone to enjoy. Here's the text from the second half of the feature:

To go along with the Indian-theme of this game, I’ve got a delicious meal for you this week, and yes, it’s an actual dinner this time (I’ve been sort of on a dessert kick). Chicken Madras is a flavorful dish filled with traditional Indian spices. You should be able to buy the curry powder, curry masala gravy and garam masala (a blend of ground spices) in the spices aisle of your local grocery store, or else at a specialty market. Curry comes in a variety of heat (from mild to spicy), and you can use whichever you prefer. This recipe is quick and easy and a delicious supplement for this fun and addictive game.

Chicken Madras (Serves 2)

You’ll need:

- 3 chicken breasts cut into chunks
- 1 cup curry masala gravy
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons curry powder (or more to taste)
- 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
- 4 cloves crushed garlic
- ½ cup grated ginger
- 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 5 tablespoons chopped coriander
- 1 teaspoon garam masala

1. Start by making a paste of the curry powder and chili powder with just enough water to get it wet and sticky.
2. Fry the onion in a pan with the oil until it's translucent.
3. Add the garlic, ginger and cayenne pepper and fry it another 30 seconds or so.
4. Add the curry and chili powder mixture and stir until combined.
5. Add the chicken and fry until the chicken is cooked a bit on the outside.
6. Add the masala gravy and simmer until the chicken is cooked, stirring constantly.
7. When it's almost done, add the coriander and stir.
8. Serve this delicious treat with a side of basmati rice.

If you like the recipe and the writing, we have a nice backlog of Dinner and a Game features and new ones each week at the website! Check us out here.
