BAKING AND DESSERT

NO-BAKE CHEESECAKE with INCABERRIES TOPPING

You can also conjure up a super delicious cheesecake without an oven I‘ll show you how easy it is. Cake without baking, in my opinion, they are not so good for baking because they are very badly damaged in the oven due to high water content. Never mind what are the so-called „no bake“ cakes for! No-bake cakes, as the English name suggests are not baked. They usually have a rather thin base and refreshing cream spread over it, which then sets by cooling it in refrigerator. Often, the no-bake cakes can be prepared really quickly and personally, I particularly like the fact that you save yourself baking and looking back in the oven. Today I conjured up a no-bake cheesecake with very fresh Incaberries topping. The biscuit base is wonderfully crispy, without sugar added in it.

MY DOGS

🇦🇹MY DOGS🐕 🐶

My dogs keep me happy and healthy, do you agree?

The relationship I have with them is good for my heart and soul. Specially walking with Mary🐶 can help keep me healthy which I really need even for 30 minutes a day, a big help for a diabetic like me. To think coming home to them after work reduces my stress.

According to researchers, owners love their pets in the same way as family members, and that’s true that’s the way how I feel towards my dog family and they return their devoted affection to us. This „love“ hormone helps increase the bond we share.

Riyad’s first Birthday

The day Riyad celebrated its first birthday with us. Riyad is a Christmas gift I got from my daughter way back 2010 if I remember it right. A nine weeks old puppy my stress reliever and makes me happy all the time. Now it is almost 10 years old. On September 2020 it will turn exactly 10 years old. Thank you Lord that my dog is healthy and happy. In this video down here I can see how it develops and grown my puppy with us. Learned a lot and so happy. His eyes are relaxed, he blinks a lot, his gaze is soft and his brow is smooth. His ears are also relaxed, not cocked or pointing. His mouth is open a bit with a few teeth visible his tongue may be lolling and he may even appear to be smiling.

🇮🇹TRAVEL DIARY 📔EP1 ITALY NAPLES,CINQUE TERRE and PISA TOWER

Naples, Napoli, Neapel, Napolitana, I don’t know how you call it is the third largest Municipality in Italy.  They said public health conditions in the city were poor.  We are so blessed what we have here in Vienna.  And was the most bomed city in Italy during world war 2.  Jesus Christ! Sorry for this review.😏

Piazza del Plebiscito (picture above) is the main city square.  For me was not that exciting scenery, eventhough I’m that type who has big interest with culture, history and museums what Nations matter.  It is a comparison of just like an abandoned place or a dead society.  I could not feel what ever excitement or interesting topics or area which derives the so called what nations matter.  Maybe was not enough time to get know the place, but I tell you frankly, I don’t have any plan at all to comeback not even for a short period of time.  This was only a part what we have seen, there’s a lot more about the place.   The square is good used for open-air concerts.  It is really huge enough to accommodate concert-goers. With my cousin Gigi and her son, during their one month vacation here in europe.

Here glimpse of Cinque Terre, Pisa Tower, Sinopie Museum, and Pisa Baptistory in 🇮🇹Italy with my daughter Diana-Grace. One among our travel diary together. Eat well, travel often folks!🤗 See the world 🌍🌎🌏

Edgar Wright-

If you go back to your home town or you’re reunited with school friends, its always slightly bittersweet because as much as there’s nice things in terms of seeing them again, the town has changed without you, and you’re no longer a part of it.

Inspired by the classic teriyaki dish.  Just cut the pork spare ribs, brown them in hot vegetable oil, add finely chopped onions, garlic, and ginger, season with salt, pepper, soy sauce, hot chilli sauce or sambal oelek if you prefer, sweet and sour chille sauce, a little bit vinegar, ginger powder and brown sugar, pour in about two cups of water, bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for an hour and a half., until meat is tender. Serve with hot rice! GUTEN APPETIT!

Saba – iCookiTravel

Banana- Saba, boiling it for my meal is healthy snack for diabetics. Since a half cup of fruit every dinner is allowable for diabetics, it is perfectly fine to regularly include the saba in one’s meal or diet. One must be noted that the ideal snack for diabetic is the boiled banana saba. Since banana is high in fiber, eating banana is heavy on the belly, it is one way of driving down one’s appetite so that one is prevented from overeating.
