Free Money (Practically)

I've been using Swagbucks for a good half a year to a year now. At first I was hesitant about swagbucking because I assumed it was a scam but I've totally changed my mind.

You can read about how swagbucks work here. Honestly I've already redeem about $80 worth of gift card with my swagbucks points. All I have to do is just use their search engine and I will earn points. If I'm going to be searching anyways why not use swagbucks right?

I strongly urge you guys to try swagbucks. Eventually when you save enough points you can redeem anything you one which I normally redeem Amazon gift cards. To get started just click here and you'll be on your way to earning swagbuck points and redeeming your gift! Best of both worlds :)

Kitchen Collections

I've been waiting for the mail man to show up with my present for almost one week. Finally when I got back from work this was what greeted me in front of my door.

Bread and more bread

I've been trying to eat my breakfast every morning. The past few weeks I've been trying different bread recipes with success and have been eating bread with peanut butter/Kaya or any flavor jam. The whole reason was when I went Asian grocery shopping a few weeks back I bought a bottle of Kaya and I wanted to eat it up before it goes bad so I've been eating it almost every morning.

Since hubs decided that he will be having sandwiches for work this week I told him that I would bake him a bread for it (he don't like to use homemade bread with his deli sandwiches because he said it falls apart). This week I decided to make a healthier loaf for him and decided upon Instant Oats load since I saw that it looks so soft and yummy.

Lime Chiffon Cake

Happy 4th of July everyone! Hope everyone is having a great holiday!

Initially I was planning to make Satay for 4th of July but it's been raining like cats and dogs these past couple of days plus I had to work today so I decided that I'll do that another time. Since hubs and I was home yesterday I suggested that we get some meat to make fajitas at home.So yesterday we went to the store and bought what was needed to marinate the meat. One of the ingredients for the marinate was lime juice and I bought about 15 pieces because it was just $1!!Well since I only used 2-3 pieces to marinate the meat I've been scratching my head to think of what to do with the rest of the limes before it goes bad. Then I thought I would make lime chiffon cake because I know people make orange chiffon cake so why not try lime?

This is my 3rd time making chiffon cake and the first two times I managed to whip the egg white until stiff perk but for some reason this time I could not reach that. I also did not want to over beat the egg white. The egg white became some what stiff but when I toss it around it was sliding a little so I thought to myself as the first sign of failure!Since every thing else was already mixed together I decided I'll just go ahead. Worst comes to worst my cake will just collapse or will not rise as much as its suppose too.

My cake cracked when I took it out from the oven. I'm not sure was it because I open the over one too many times to make sure that it won't burn.
