A easy way to make a tart


An easy way to coat strawberries with chocolate


Como se deve preparar a massa


Deve cozer-se a massa num recipiente alto sem tampa, utilizando sempre a regra do 1 – 10 – 100. Ou seja: 1 litro de água para 10g de sal grosso e 100g de massa.

Quando a água ferver, adicione o sal e a massa, mexendo de vez em quando com um garfo de madeira. Durante o tempo de cozedura mantenha o recipiente destapado. A massa estará no ponto ideal “al dente” quando estiver cozida por fora e ligeiramente dura por dentro.

O tempo de cozedura depende do formato de cada massa. Uma vez cozida, escorra a massa num passador. Só deverá passar por água fria no caso de preparar saladas.

Truques para massa de bolo fofa



Acenda o forno e unte a forma.Os bolos crescem mais se forem assados logo após o preparo.Forno alto ou baixo deixam o bolo murcho.A não ser que a receita dê outra indicação em contrário, mantenha a temperatura a 180ºC.

Use ingredientes na temperatura ambiente.Ovos ,leite e manteiga não devem estar gelados.

Adicione o fermento em pó só no final.Guarde-o em local seco e fresco.A mudança de temperatura faz o fermento ficar alterado.

Bata as claras até ficarem firmes.Misture-as delicadamente.

Peneire os ingredientes secos para não empelotar.

Cubra o bolo depois de o tirar do forno.Nunca o coloque em bancadas frias pois a mudança brusca de temperatura faz a massa murchar.

Tips on how to wear in shoes - as suggested by the Shoewawa readers!


Lucy Hulme writes...

A few months ago, I told you about Victoria Beckham's advice to all high heel fans out there, whereby wearing a new pair of heels around the housew ith a pair of thick socks should loosen them up to fit your foot better. Many of you agreed, and lots of you came up with loads of other fabulous ideas as well. Carry on reading to see what they were!

1. Take some newspaper sheets and shape them inside the shoe so they're tight. Then pour alcohol (from a chemist) around the paper until it's wet outside, and put it in the shoe again. Apparently this is fabulous for making leather stretch if you have a pair of leather shoes which are pinching, but it takes around three days to work. Alternatively, as Arelya suggested, pouring the alcohol in and then wearing thick socks works even more quickly.

2. You could try putting leather shoes in the microwave inside a plastic bag (just for a few seconds) - but as Jimena, who made the suggestion, pointed out, there could be nails that aren't visible so it's a risky one!
3. Use a nail-file in the shoe where it rubs until soft.

4. If the leather is very tough, stuff the shoe tightly with newspaper or socks then cover the shoe with fabric and hammer it, softening the leather. Arelya recommends this if your shoes are too tough to wear in even with socks.

Do you have anyone fabulous tips to share with the rest of our Shoewawa readers? Post a comment and I'll update the post! Happy heel wearing...!

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME;
ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME;
ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
