Quick and Easy Recipes

Shortly after I got married, my wife and I began cooking much more frequently since we were both on our own and going out to eat all the time can become costly. I think we also developed a need for easy recipes because they can save time and of course they are easy to make! I have to say that one of the websites that helped out a great deal with our cooking is at Relish dot com. I really love all of the recipes that are featured at Relish because they are unique and easy to make as well, such as the Panang Chicken Curry with Basil which is a Thai recipe that can be prepared in 30 minutes. I really enjoy dishes with curry quite a bit and this one does not disappoint at all. One of the perks of the Relish website is that all of the ingredients are listed, the instructions are easy to follow, and the nutrition facts are shown so that you will know how healthy your dishes are, what more could you ask for? So if you enjoy great tasting, easy to make meals, check out all the great things that Relish has to offer, you and your taste buds will be glad you did.

Halo-Halo Dessert

I have been craving for some Halo-Halo for awhile now and then I saw that one my cousins recently posted a picture of Halo-Halo in her Facebook account. I am just drooling all day with this picture and I can't wait to visit my birth country again in the future. Look what I have below!

Men in Scrubs

Everything worked out this past weekend because my husband and I both work in the morning so we had the chance to be with his family and have a sleep over there. Anyways, two of my sisters-in-laws are both working in the medical field and therefore wear medical scrubs everyday at their places of work. I had told them about an online store called Blue Sky Scrubs which can be found at  who offers different selections of medical scrubs uniforms such as scrubs for men, scrubs for women and children’s scrubs. They also provides other medical uniforms such as scrub sets, custom scrubs, scrub bottoms and tops, nursing scrubs and more. Both of my sisters-in-laws were pretty excited because they can now order their scrubs online at anytime of the day 24/7. Also one of my sisters- in- laws wants to customize her scrubs because she normally wears the size which is too big or too small for her.
If you are working in the medical field or wanting to switch job then you might want to check out this website today!

Unique Pet

I am really thinking about purchasing a pet, but I would like to get a small pet. I really like dogs, but my husband thinks that having a unique pet is great because it will amaze friends and relatives who come to visit. Just recently I found out about the Micro Pig, which is a pig that is actually smaller than a regular pig. The micro pig is just one of the cutest pets you can own, you just have to see it to believe it! If you are looking for a great pet that is small, check out the Micro pig, you will really be amazed by it.
