My Amazing 12-Inch Green Earth Wok from Ozeri #Review

I've always had the passion for cooking and baking. When I was little I love to watch my mother cook our meals, until I grow up, I started to help by mincing and cutting ingredients for the dish.

I like to assist whenever there are big occasions in our family. My Mother and Aunts are busy with the meal preparation and so I always asked them what can I help to be part of their team.
When I opened the packaging box
Original packing of the Wok..very protected
Now, being married and have 2 kids, I say, I can always cook the food I'd like to serve to my family. Whether if it's a new complicated dish or the most common and simple food to prepare. Doesn't matter as long as they are happy and I'm serving a healthy meal is what's important.
see how they secure the Wok
Making my family's meal makes things even better when I have the right kind of pots, pans and wok to use. And today, I have the opportunity to work on a 12-Inch Green Earth Wok from Ozeri. YES!!! I am an avid fan of their amazing pans which gives me a satisfaction and never fails me whenever I used it.
to help protect the Wok, when you pile it
The product arrives in the mail through UPS in a very sealed packaging box. The big box is very light and I was already impressed by the time I picked up the package from our doorstep to the kitchen. If it's very light how light could be the Wok?
it's just perfect for my soupy meals
I always find the green color,  neat and totally an environmental friendly. I washed the wok before using it and after using the wok I put a teaspoon of oil and rub the oil evenly into the surface and use a cloth or paper wipe away the exists oil. This is the goal to create a very thin film of oil. I like how deep the Wok is and how lightweight it is. Perfect for my soupy meals. It has a long handle in order to hold the Wok easily.

The manual that comes with the product is pretty handy and useful. It tells you everything about how to handle and helps the Wok stay longer.

I enjoy the wok very much, just makes my normal cooking even delightful. The product can be purchased through Amazon.

#madefromearth Organic Aloe Vera Body Lotion #Review + #Giveaway

 I have the opportunity to review an Organic Aloe Vera Body Lotion today and I'm ecstatic knowing that this is something I have never tried using before. I received the product in the mail, in a bubble wrapped enveloped along with the small lip balm in lemon flavor and I see a damage/dent on the lotion, it looks like it's been sucked from the inside yet, I don't see any leakage that the cream escape, even when I tip it on that side. 

When I try and applied the product on my hands, the first thing that I noticed was it's citrus smell. Of course, it's an Aloe Vera and jojoba creme [which I have no clue of what kind of plant it is] in which I assume the smell should be. 

The cream is colored white, non greasy, smells really good even after you applied it. I used it one time on my face as I've felt an itchy, dry spot and it works okay. The itchiness goes away and the dryness lessens after the application. And of course, I have a bonus of smelling a citrus scent. I'm totally safe using this lotion on my face, which I'm very cautious cause I don't want to burn my face, the product contains a pH balance for facial applications.

I'll have a lotion that helps treat my dry, itchy face and plus it have an Aloe Vera. I have to say, other than the dent due to the shipment I am happy and satisfied with the quality of the product. It works for me and that's one of the main craze that I'm confident to share the lotion's experience.

ChocoFlan by Betty Crocker, our Anniversary Cake

A for Anniversary, this was last year's wedding anniversary dessert that I made for us. I know,  I should be watching what I'm eating before because of my GDP, but I didn't know that during our Wedding anniversary month.

I've seen this amazing and glorious dessert in one of my favorite websites, Betty Crocker and couldn't wait to make it. It is a very simple dessert and to those who loves cake and a flan at the same time,  this is what you should try. 

CHOCO FLAN

Ingredients

Cake:
1 jar (12.25 oz) caramel topping
1 box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ triple chocolate fudge cake mix
1 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs

Flan:
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 cup milk
4 eggs

Directions:
1          Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with butter. Pour 1/4     cup 
            of the caramel topping in bottom of pan. Refrigerate remaining caramel topping for serving.

2          In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and 3 eggs with electric mixer on medium speed about 2                   minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour batter over caramel topping in pan.

3          In blender, place flan ingredients. Cover; blend on high speed until smooth, about 40 seconds.                       Slowly pour mixture over batter. (Flan mixture will mix   with batter, but they will separate during 
            baking, forming 1 layer of cake and 1 layer of flan.)

4          Cover cake pan with foil. Place in large roasting pan; add 1 inch of hot water to roasting pan.

5          Bake about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. Remove cake pan from water             bath to cooling rack; remove foil. Cool completely, at least 1 hour.

6       Place serving plate upside down on cake pan; turn plate and pan over. Remove pan. Cut chocoflan 
         into slices; serve with remaining caramel topping. Store in refrigerator.
