This Ingredient Makes for the Creamiest Mac-and-Cheese


Want to learn my secret for the most satisfying, luxurious and creamy mac-and-cheese? Just add cream of mushroom soup! I learned about this nifty little trick in an episode of Tia Mowry at Home and rushed to the supermarket the next day to fetch the ingredients. I would have never thought of this addition, but it worked like a dream. Would you give it a try to rev up your mac-and-cheese recipe?

This One Quirk Makes You Sexier to the Opposite Sex


Breaking news! The opposite sex finds you more attractive when you exhibit this one trait: weirdness. How refreshing is that? According to this Australian study, men and women prefer "non-conformist romantic partners," not submissive damsels in distress or modest gentlemen. Go ahead and bring all of your eccentricities to the forefront because apparently it's incredibly sexy when you do.

Happy Mother's Day!


Wishing all the mommies and mommies-to-be a very happy and relaxing Mother's Day!

In honor of Mother's Day, I present you all with this touching poem about a mother's strong and lasting love for her children. I think it's essential for all children, young and old, to remember to cherish their mothers while they still can. Never take her for granted.

Enjoy!

Mother’s Day

      —for my children

I see her doing something simple, paying bills,
or leafing through a magazine or book,
and wish that I could say, and she could hear,

that now I start to understand her love
for all of us, the fullness of it.

It burns there in the past, beyond my reach,
a modest lamp.

Potato Pizza!


Have you ever tried potato pizza? I only found out about it recently but apparently it has been a thing in Rome for quite some time. 

Potato is not the first topping I think of when I think of the ideal pie. Pepperoni and ham, yes, pineapple, maybe, but potatoes.... It sounds odd but I assure you, it's ridiculously delicious. Check out this potato pizza recipe from Alexandra's Kitchen. Bon Appetit!

My Secret to Glowing Skin


I love to find budget-friendly ideas to add to my beauty regimen, it's so much better than buying expensive beauty products that don't always deliver on results. After I read many Indian women have long been using turmeric as a skin exfoliant, I started adding a dash of it to my daily facial moisturizer and the results have been amazing. It's like someone has shone a light beneath my skin. Turmeric is high in antioxidant and is also said to diminish wrinkles. Would you give turmeric a try?

FYI: If you're going to try turmeric, be sure to use gloves because it will stain your fingernails.
