I’ll admit it — I’ve never had a bloomin’ onion. Just the calorie count on the popular appetizer turns me off…but honestly, now that I know it’s easy to make them at home, I kind of want to try one. Maybe it’s just the fact that at home, I can control just what goes into the recipe…perhaps I finally understand how delicious they look. Either way, if you’ve never tried the savory side (or maybe it’s your favorite), you have to check this simple dish out! googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Here’s what you need! Ingredients: 1 onion 1 1/2 cups [More]
When Jaden Hayes was just four, his dad passed away. He was heartbroken, but it wasn’t until he was six that things truly took a turn for the worse. His mom died in her sleep. But instead of letting his grief overwhelm him, the little boy, who is clearly far wiser than his six years, decided to do something about all the sadness around him. He started giving away toys with one hope in mind — to make people smile! He’s about to make you smile, too. This little guy is inspiring and his message is so important. No matter [More]
Celebrities…they’re just like us, right? I mean, yeah, if you’re also disgustingly rich and have people who pretend to be you as their hobby or even profession… While they may not be exactly our equals, it is nice when stars like Adele do something to surprise some of their biggest fans. When the famous British songstress got wind that some of her impersonators were getting together for a singing competition, she decided to surprise them in the most convoluted, but admittedly awesome, way possible. Just watch! This reaction is the best. YouTube / BBC How amazing is that?! She kept [More]
It’s something that affects 60 to 80% of the U.S. adult population…lower back pain. Treatment for some is as simple as getting a new mattress or exercising more, but for others, there’s a need to get surgery or costly massages. If normal remedies haven’t worked for you, you might want to give this little trick a try. Grab a tennis ball and watch Manu Kalia, a physical therapist, walk you through a simple exercise for lower back pain. Here’s another quick stretch routine. You’d be surprised at how massaging your butt can affect your lower back. Everything in your body [More]
I still remember how much I hated getting cuts and scrapes as a kid…because they meant my mom would douse the spots with hydrogen peroxide and that arguably hurt more! But it also always did the trick. Since hydrogen peroxide does expire — you should get rid of it six months after opening — it can be tough to use the entire bottle up on just bumps and cuts. Then again, if you know all of these awesome uses for the fizzy liquid, you’ll find yourself going through bottle after bottle. This stuff is so useful! First, for easy application, [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTAT_ATF’); }); Nancy is just a puppy, but she’s already had a close brush with death. When the wonderful people at Animal Aid Unlimited found her, her head was huge. It was so swollen that it looked like a balloon. They can’t be sure why, but she had a string around her neck that was tied extremely tight. It was slowly choking her to death. They brought her back to their sanctuary and quickly got to work. Wait until you see her at the end! She’s so happy! YouTube / Animal Aid Unlimited, India googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); }); [More]
Many people start their days out by weighing themselves…but if you listened to anything Christina Aguilera told the world in 2002, it’s that we are beautiful, no matter what they say. And this pug couldn’t agree more. You see, when his owner tries to use the scale, he has a lot of feelings about the whole thing. “Weight is just a number, dad!” “Lemme just take that off your hands…” Rumble / AFV It becomes pretty clear at the end that this little guy is trying to get out of being weighed himself! That’s okay, though, he’s still a handsome [More]
I would eat pasta for every meal if I could also maintain a normal weight. Alas, this is just a pipe dream. One of my favorite Italian dishes is definitely lasagna. And while I’ve never been adventurous enough to make it in my own kitchen, I may actually give it a whirl in this reincarnation of the complex meal. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Not only do these lasagna poppers look absolutely delicious, they seem so much easier to make than a full pan of the savory dish. If you’re looking for a new snack to try for your next party, [More]
I can’t get through a meal out without having at least one piece of the free bread. Similarly, I always leave room for dessert. So you can imagine my delight when I found this recipe that combines two of my greatest passions — ice cream and bread. Get ready, friends, because this recipe is one for your family cookbooks. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); If you “ruined” your favorite ice cream by letting it sit out too long, here’s how you can still use it! Ingredients: 1 pint of any kind of ice cream — melted 1 1/4 cups of self-rising [More]
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); Now that I’m older, it’s rare that I actually receive a birthday present. As a kid, my parents would make a big deal out of the event — each birthday I was so excited to unwrap my gift. But never was I ever given something as fluffy, snuggly, or wiggly as what Colette Francisco got on her ninth birthday. You see, Francisco has been asking her parents for a puppy for almost six years…so when they found the perfect pup for the young girl, they knew it was time to make her dreams a reality. Her [More]
