Frosty Boy Whipped Cream by Ferna

Domestic Urbanite

I have never bothered to find other whipped cream alternatives besides the all-purpose cream that I have come to use repeatedly. It’s creamy alright, but not really the flavor I like when whipping it. It lacks the Starbucks whipped topping taste and consistency. And it doesn’t have that Pancake House stiff whipped cream pancake and waffle topper texture either. So what made the others so different?

I talked to one (and only one I know!) pastry chef who specializes in these things and asked for her advise. She recommended using Avocet, a non-dairy pastry cream used specifically for whipping. But a liter of that is so expensive! And the it only comes in liter packs. Though I’m not that cheap when it comes to experiments, something so unhealthy and so expensive will most probably not make it in my book. So another alternative has to be found.

Though I have…

Keep Calm And Praise On



I’m sure you have seen this “Keep Calm” meme before but I decided to put a twist on it! I created this in Adobe Illustrator (not a meme generator -_-). There were so many scriptures to choose from but I think Philippians 4: 4; 6-7 does the job! Feel free to sharewith others or on your site.

And remember no matter what you are going through, to praise God and give thanks. Don’t forget that He is in control.  He has a plan for you and everything will work out to the glory of the Lord. Have a blessed day!

Keep Calm and Carry On is a catchphrase that originally appeared on a World War II-era British public safety poster. After one of the original posters was recovered and placed in a British bookshop in 2000, the inspirational message was shared online, sparking a series of image macros centered…

To Thermomix or not to Thermomix?

Nice review…

To Thermomix or not to Thermomix? That’s the $1939 question. I expected to come out of the other side of a two-week trial period of the tricked up kitchen mixer knowing if it is worth splashing out almost $2000 on one. I don’t. I’ll put my cards on the table — I wasn’t considering buying a Thermomix when I asked to review one. But I was intrigued about why so much fuss was being made over a piece of kitchen equipment. When a colleague who works with me at The Australian Financial Review asked if it was worth buying one, I suggested he review one for the newspaper and find out for himself. I decided to go one step further and review one myself. I wrote a rolling review over six of the days of the trial period. We had our ups and we had our downs.

Thermal cookers comparison chart

Very nice…

Cheating with Bellini

thermocookersI’ve made this chart for people are thinking about getting their first thermal cooker. It’s not meant to prove that one machine is superior to another – it just depends what is important to you. If you really want to cook and steam simultaneously, then the ThermoBlend or HotMixPRO will be less appealing. If a reluctance motor will seal the deal, then a Thermomix is your best option. Let me know if there are any glaring errors.

One more important point: this table doesn’t reflect the durability of the machines. The $500 and under machines usually have more reported faults and returns. All the machines have facebook pages/ user groups – these are a good place to get feedback about this issue.

The bowl capacity of every one of the machines is 2L. All prices are in Australian dollars. I haven’t included a separate section for Lakeland’s MultiChef (only sold…
