Environmentally-Friendly Houses "QUANTUM SHOT" #233Link - article by Joshua S. Hill and Avi Abrams Most ecologically friendly house designs This article is co-written by our guest blogger Joshua S. Hill, from My Writing Voice and Avi Abrams, Dark Roasted Blend. We continue the "ecologically clean living" theme, started in the previous post "Alternative Energy Mega Projects". "A Low Impact Woodland Home" by Simon Dale Now I had originally intended to take you on a tour through all the wonderful ecologically-clean houses that exist in our wonderful world, but it turns out that as a group, those who tend towards these houses apparently disdain the creation of a decent website, and even further hate actual content. Simon, with his wife, father in law and two young children spent 4 months building what they have termed a low impact woodland home, which is now their family home. The house, which was built with a maximum regard for the environment around it, is dug soundly into the hill around it. See more photos here ...

Tasty Kitchen: A Happy Recipe Community! Indian Recipes : Recipes from India Cinnamon Roll Sugar Cookies? Yes! Have I got a treat for you today right before Valentines day! I was getting ready to cut my traditional sugar cookies in the shape of hearts for this post and a little light bulb went off! I don’t know if I was craving cinnamon rolls or what, but I thought to myself….I am soooo making these sugar cookies into cinnamon rolls! Brace yourself friends, you will NOT be able to stop eating these, they are that good. My husband and I both agree the only way to enjoy these beauties is after they’ve chilled in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Talk about heaven I’ll stop talking so you can go make these quickly, make them for your Valentine and he or she will LOVE you forever!! Roll your chilled dough into about a 12 inch x 5 inch oval. Just pretend that I’m not spreading all that butter over cookie dough, we’ll all feel better Brown sugar is next up Then the Cinnamon! Time to roll into a cute little log, then use a sharp knife to cut into slices Place onto your baking sheet No words needed! 1. 2. 3.

White Chocolate Bread Stop. Whatever you’re doing. Grab your keys. Drive to the nearest grocery store and buy yourself some white chocolate chips and wheat gluten. Speed home as fast as you can, and make this bread. I first had this bread about 7 years ago on a family vacation to Club Med. Then, just last week, a post popped up in my twitter account with a link to the recipe! The one tricky part about the recipe is an ingredient. With wheat gluten in hand, I just needed to find time to make it. The bread is surprisingly easy. The result is quite similar in texture to a typical country bread, but with one delicious twist – morsels of sweet molten white chocolate, melted into the bubbles and nooks and crannies of the bread. I told you it was good. White Chocolate Bread Ingredients:8 cups flour 1 teaspoon yeast 1 tablespoon wheat gluten 2 teaspoons salt 3 1/2 cups water 2 3/4 cups white chocolate chips Directions:Place flour, yeast and gluten in a small bowl.

A Low Impact Woodland Home Take one baby, a toddler and a building site. Mix well with a generous helping of mud, combine with 6 weeks of solid welsh rain whilst living under canvas. Do this in candle light without a bathroom or electricity for three months. Chuck in living with your father for good measure. Having children is a major motivation for buying a house. Some past experience, lots of reading and self-belief gave us the courage of our conviction that we wanted to build our own home in natural surroundings. Initially we had no capital and we had decided resolutely to be full time parents whilst our children were young. So here we are today. Many people ask how we managed to build a house whilst camping without mainstream facilities and as the mum rather than the full time building blokes (my husband and father) I can assure you of a few things. If that hasn’t put you off more serious issues do provide an impetus to eco-building. Serendipity called again to provide the floor and windows.

You can only imagine what I did first thing yesterday morning. So let’s hit all the major points: 1. 2. 3. Or you can do dirty things like eat it with a spoon.

Jamaican Banana Fritters - There’s a thing in my house that when you have ripe ol bananas either you make banana bread or banana fritters. These delicious tasty treats can be eaten morning, noon, or night, as a snack or as dessert. These fritters are so easy to make and will satisfy any craving you may have. So if you have a few of these bananas lying around your hose… don’t toss them, put them to GREAT use! Enjoy! Peel and mash the ripe bananas. Beat egg, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Next, blend egg mixture with mashed bananas. Make sure it is all incorporated. Then sift flour and baking powder into the banana/egg mixture. Mix it all together. If the batter seems to be too thick add a little milk… I added about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of milk. Add oil to a frying pan and place on medium high heat. Drop spoonfuls of the banana fritter batter into the hot oiled frying pan. Flip when you see the edges starting to get brown and golden. Lastly, combine cinnamon and sugar together to create your cinnamon sugar. Ingredients
