Do It Yourself Dried Mangoes

I bought a food dehydrator so I can dry my herbs and some fruits in season. Yesterday was my first time to try  drying  some mangoes.  Mangoes are in season and very cheap in the  store for only 49 cents a piece. So I sliced 9 mangoes thinly and dehydrate them for about 10 hours. I thought I did good on my first dried mango,  it turnd out too dry and crisp. I had a mango chips instead  of a candied dried mango that my husband loves to munch.

Herbs and Vegetables Garden

The joys of gardening is growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs. Cooking is not complete without spices and herbs. Herbs added vibrant and delicious taste to any food. Parsley is the world's most popular herb and available all year round in the supermarket. My garden is not complete without these amazing herbs that makes wonder to every meal. Most of the herb and vegetables are perennial, they survive the winter so you don't have to start your garden from scratch every year.

Budget Saving Yogurt Parfait

Yogurt, made by using active, good bacteria.is needed by the body's digestive tract. These good bacteria called probiotics helps maintain the natural balance of organisms (microflora) in the intestines. My kids loves to eat yogurt anytime of the day and one way to serve them is a healthy yogurt parfait. Fresh berries are too costly, so I got some alternative ingredients that is way cheaper but taste delicious.
