Snow Crab for Dinner

No automatic alt text available.Snow crab for dinner sounds so good. That is what my husband and I have for our dinner tonight. However, the two-pound snow crabs are probably not enough to satisfy the both of us. It would probably take about ten pounds to satisfy my cravings for it.

We seldom buy crabs because they are usually pricey. But whenever there is a big sale at the nearby grocery store, we definitely buy some. Crab is one of my favorite kinds of seafood. I really like seafood and could eat it in every meal, especially crab.  Last night we had salmon.

I am a big …

Luma Soda – Naturally Sweetened and Flavored Soda #DrinkLuma

Someone was chomping at the bit to try Luma Soda.  Yes, my husband could not wait to open one before I finished my photography.  He opened the cherry cola.  He likes almost everything with cherry flavor.  He was sipping it while watching his favorite show on television.   That’s a nice way to relax at home in front of the fireplace, right?

Luma Soda has four different distinct flavors: cola, cherry cola, blood orange and lemon lime.  What makes Luma soda different from the typical soda is their health benefits and natural flavors.  Luma is sweetened with natural honey and nature-made monk fruit …

I can’t wait for the warm season to come and go fish at the nearby lakes.  These pictures were taken one summer season when the family got together.  I am anxious to start catching good sized eating fish. It was my hubby who caught most of these fish. Overall, at that time, we brought home seven fish of different kinds. My hubby caught one walleye, three crappies and two perch.

I, on the other hand, only caught a crappie and a perch. We had …

The OREO cookies have always been my favorite cookies. They have been since I was a kid and they always will be. I usually like to dunk my OREO cookies in a big glass of milk but before I do that, I have to lick the fillings first. For me, dunking the cookie in a milk is one of the best ways to eat the OREO cookies.


Recently, I discovered a new way to dunk my OREO cookies. It involves a little bit of work but it is very easy to make and …

Mussel Soup

I was not able to cook this dish until recently. I did not know that I could find mussels here in the US. Mussel soup is a great dish to serve during the cold and chilly days. It is very simple to make a delicious mussel soup.

You can get frozen mussels at Walmart. I was craving for mussel soup and my hubby helped me satisfy that craving. I made this soup the way I wanted it. Fortunately, my hubby likes my mussel soup recipe. The preparation is so simple. Below you can find ingredients you need and the procedure …

Stir Fry Bamboo Shoots

I do not consider myself a good cook but my hubby says I am. I have never tried cooking stir fry bamboo shoots so this was my first. Fortunately, it turned out good. At least, that is what my hubby says. My hubby encouraged me to cook stir fry bamboo shoots after he tried it at lunch at my friend’s place. The missing ingredient in my version was shrimp because, at that time, I did not have some available in my fridge. I was using fresh bamboo shoots.

Below you can find the ingredients and procedure of my own version …
