Pineapple Coconut Chicken

Pineapple Coconut Chicken! Wow, this one is good! Not only I get to play with my one of my favorite spices....Ginger, but one of my favorite foods....Pineapple.  You can also dub this as a all natural cough syrup. I'll tell you how later on.  Really it works! I used this while I had a terrible's Awesome!


4 Boneless Chicken breast
1 Pineapple
1 lemon
3inch of Ginger root
1 tsp Honey
1 Tbl of coconut oil.
2 Tbl shredded coconut


One whole pineapple pealed, discard the outer layer. Cut ALL of the fruit...yes even the hard core of the pineapple. According to Laura Flores, a San Diego-based nutritionist: the hard core of the pineapple is full of nutrition. Like high dosage of vitamin C,  manganese, and enzymes. It's that stuff that helps the body brake down proteins and turn it into energy. Put all of the cut up pineapple into a food processor. Fresh squeeze the whole lemon in to the food processor with the pineapple. Peal the ginger cut it up and place that in there as well, with the teaspoon of honey. Put the food processor on high.  Now you need a fine wire colander or a cheese cloth. Drain the liquid/cough syrup. So...the liquid is the awesome all natural cough syrup! Place the cough syrup in a mansion jar, or some sealed container, put it in the fridge. Take 2 teaspoons every 4/6 hours. 

Now the pulp, is used for your chicken. Place chicken and pulp in a frying pan with coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of  shredded coconut. Cook until your chicken reaches 160 degrees, or until you are confidant that the chicken is done!  This is supper good!

Romanticizing: What Could Be

Wouldn't it be wonderful to wake up and everything will be Beautiful? No more killings, hate, or fear? How about walking at night alone on the streets of your favorite city? Possibly a city you've always wanted to visit, but haven't yet?

With all that is ugly things happening around the world, sometimes it is hard to find the simple beautiful joy. We hear or see of killings, threats, the terror people will cause on others. Why? Why must people do and say such things? Could it be jealousy, fear, or just plain zealousness? 

We learn in the scriptures "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Matthew 7:20 & 3 Nephi 14:20). As in, look in what they are saying, and doing. A good tree cannot bare rotten fruit. How about: a genuinely good person will always do good, because they want to. 

There is beauty still. Beauty is everywhere. It is in art, music, flowers, and etc. It is 1 am my time. How much fun would it be to walk alone in the dark in your city of choice and not have fear? You could enjoy the city at your own pace. Take everything in, all the sites, smells, the sounds. That would be a fantasy right now. 

Everyone from time to time do a little Romanticizing. Be it for the past, present, or future. We all somehow, in some way do just that, romanticize. Does that make one a romantic or a hopeless romantic?

One of my goal is to find the beauty in this world. It may seem heard or overwhelming, but it can be done. Beauty is in the simplest act of kindness to the simplest and smallest of pleasures. Joy and beauty can be found. We just need to realize it, if we don't now.

Ok, fashion....right. Truth is, I'm not a fashion expert. I don't do fashion policing. However this time I will. I am a tee-shirt and jeans and yoga pants (while I am working out) type girl. So in other words I have no idea what to tell you about fashion. I'm not even going to try and tell you what is the "must-haves-of-the-season" I will say this I am going to include an URL to this post to an other blog, and a web site. 

Sophia Janner, talks about on her blog what every woman needs to know.....bras. Yes, bras. You might think you are waring the right size bra, but the truth of the matter is about 80% of women are not. It's not you're fault, so don't get defensive. The stores like WallMart, K-Mart, and etc don't carry all sizes that women need to find a good comfy fit bra. One of the tall tell signs of wearing the wrong size bra is:

  • Saggy looking boobs
  • You look bigger. Not in the boobs, but your overall shape
  • You have the "forth" boob effect
  • Bad posture
  • Your back and shoulders hurt

80% of women are walking around with their back and shoulders hurting, saggy breast, the "forth boob", and the sideboob." Come on what 20 something wants to have saggy looking breast? What woman for that matter would want to have sagging look breast?

My friends, sorry about the following language, but this is spot on. I know people who are like these
cartoon girls. 

So the question you'd might ask is:
  • How do I know when I do have the right size bra?
My counter questions are:
  1. Is the center gore (which joins the center pice of the bra together) flat against you're chest? If not, then the band size is too small for your rib cage. The center gore should lay flat against your chest. 
  2. Can you pull the center gore away from you're chest? Again, the band size is too small for your rib cage. 
  3. Do you have the sideboob going on? If yes, then your cup size is too small.
  4. Is your band parallel/ straight across the back? If it is not and it rides high on your back, then your band is too big. If the band rides low on your back then the band is too small. 
  5. Do you have breast tissue "bubbling" on top of your bra? If you do then your cup size is too small.
  6. Is the wire of the bra on your breast tissue? If yes, then your band size is too big. 
  7. Is the bra straps digging into your shoulder? If yes, then most likely your band is too big. 
  8. Is your wires are leaving a angry red mark on your breast tissue? Depending where the angry make is, but it could just simply mean that your band is too small, with a too small cup size. 
Again, not your fault if you are wearing the wrong bra size. We are trained to think that cup DD and up are way too big and the girls need to go under the knife. Not really. It all depends on the volume of the breast tissue and how narrow your back/rib cage is. 

For example: 34D, 36C, and 38B have the same volume, but a 38 band might be too big for your rib cage. Now let's go bigger cups. 32FF, 34F, and 38E have the same volume. Now you might think that these are horrendously big, but again, it all depends on your shape. When you do have the right size bra on, then your natural body shape will look slimmer, and boobs will look perky, not saggy. 

Here is clip by Figleaves, they explan what you need to know when looking for the perfect fit bra. It is just a 5 minute clip. I also love their website They do have a bra calculator that helps. They also have "Ask our experts," they are helpful in finding the right size. has ALL sizes, brands, and style of bras, and they always do have some kind of sale going on, all the time. I haven't found another web site that is like this one....yet. 

If you do find out that you are bigger then a 24D, don't fret. Go ahead and get the right size bra even IF it is a 30G. You will find that you are way more comfortable in the right size bra, and you will look better also.  

Ok I've tried to put the clip on the blog, but it didn't want to work. So this is the YouTube URL . Sorry about that.

Cheers for now!
Have an Awesome day
You have deserved it!

The Declaration Of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Buttermilk Candy. An Old Recipe........Perfected.

How can you perfect something as old as an 1918 recipe? Hmmm.....good question. My answer is if you like the taste of sugar.......lots of it, then by-'ol-means you can't perfect it. If not then, tweaking is in order.

The 1918 candy recipe goes as:

2 cups of sugar
butter about the size of a walnut (seriously, that is what it said)
1 cup of buttermilk

1 In saucepan, boil together sugar, butter, buttermilk, until it forms a soft ball stage in cold water. Remove from the fire, beat until creamy. Pour into buttered pans, cut in squares when cool.

That is it the 1918 year old recipe. Now this is my version of this recipe.

2 cups of sugar
4 Tb spoons of butter
1 cup of buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla

In a heavy saucepan or if you have a copper pot USE IT! Copper pots, distribute the heat evenly. Awesome in any candy making.  Boil together sugar, butter, and buttermilk, DO NOT STIR MIXTURE! Just leave it be. I don't care what your uncle-cousin-grandma-neighbor-sister-friend-boyfriend-husband-aunt-brother-former-roommate-mother-dad-that-unknown-person-on-the-phone have said, just leave it alone, just use a candy thermometer and leave the mixture alone, until it forms a soft ball stage between 235° F–240° F sugar concentration: 85%

At this temperature, sugar syrup dropped into cold water will form a soft, flexible ball. If you remove the ball from water, it will flatten like a pancake after a few moments in your hand.

Remove from heat. Add 1 tsp of vanilla, beat mixture with a hand held electric mixture, until it is forming define lines or creamy. Pour into lined pans with parchment or waxed paper. Let it cool at room temperature for a few hours. When ready to serve, cut into squares. If it comes out gooey like mine did today, you can't cut it into squares. Strange that it came out gooey for me today, maybe I didn't whip it long enough. Take some wax paper and spoon some on the wax paper, then tie the ends. 

Not much different then the old 1918 recipe, but in my opinion it taste much better. The taste of sugar is masked and it's more creamy.

Cheers Everyone!

"That" Time of Year Once Again

Yes, as we know Valentines is coming up once again, and for some reason it comes up every year. Somehow I do think that singles all over the world would agree with me when I say: "Boycott Valentines Day!" Guess what we have, by calling it: "Singles-Awareness-Day." Just so you know.

 Now I have found a list of books to read for *cough* Valentines Day *cough.* To be honest I haven't read many of these books.   One of the books that was listed was "Beastly." Many reasons why I didn't like this story, (I tried to but failed). One of the reasons that bothered me about this story, was at the beginning of the story where the main character gets groped, and there was drugs and alcohol in the story.  Yeah, I was uncomfortable just reading about it; to say the lest, I don't recommended this book at all.

So now that *cough* Valentines Day *cough* is approaching fast, (Men, get the roses and chocolates ordered for your love), but I do have my own list of good reads for all ages. Yes, ALL ages. You can however be the judge. I like them for not only for entertainment, but they are clean. I just don't like to read junk.

  1. The Princess Bride        
  2. Book of a Thousand Days
  3. Fairest
  4. My Fair Godmother
  5. My Unfair Godmother
  6. The Mark
  7. Much Ado About Nothing
  8. Austenland
  9. Mr. Darcy Vampyre
  10. As You Like It

That is it for this years list of good *cough* Valentine *cough* (I must have a frog in my throat??), reads. I could make the list longer, but that would be boring to read a long list.

Now in a previous post I have given a list of entertainment for Single-Awareness-Day.   I have now a new updated list. If you will, a list for all; a mixture of not just books, but poetry, and movies alike. Yes, once again ALL ages, and no junk. Once again they are about lost love, unrequited love, (admit it we all have been there), and just plain silly. So silly, it doesn't have anything to do with love/Valentine.   

  1. The Unvalentine  
  2. The Lady of Shalott
  3. The Glass Bottom Boat  
  4. Walk Don't Run 
  5. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (why? you may ask, Answer....It's another view of Hamlet. By the way it's on Youtube, in parts). 
  6. The Disgusted Driver's Handbook--Instructions For Surviving On The Roads Infested With Idiots 
  7. The Blue Day Book: A Lesson on Cheering Yourself Up 
  8. Lost in Austen, (it's also on Youtube).   
  9. Arsenic and Old lace
  10. Rapunzel's Revenge
There you have it. My 2013 updated list. I must admit I really thought about the Single-Awareness-Day list, the earlier post about Single-Awareness-Day list of book's & movies I didn't need to think.  Once again you can enjoy my list or by all means, make up your own. These are just suggestions.

So don't forget the ice cream, or popcorn, and enjoy!

Cheers Everyone!

America deserves better.

A great leader is an example of everything good. They are not scared to get their hands dirty. They will be an example of service, forgiveness, justice, humility, hope, faith, and charity. I don't know what kind of president Romney could be. I only know that he has the potential to be great.

The last four years have been a wake up call for most Americans. Obama and his administration have been a disappointment. Americans have felt betrayed. I have seen the real Obama in the debates this past month, he has been petty and tiny. Attacking Romney, telling lies and rumors about him. Even after the fact checkers has proved Obama wrong. 

I don't know about you, but I want a leader that I can be proud of. As I have said before, I don't know what kind of leader Romney will be. What I do know is that, I am not proud to have Obama as my leader. He has not served the people of America with humility. Obama has not served America, only burden America's people with debt, lies, and irresponsibility. 

Obama was presented to the American people a wolf in sheepskin four years ago. I am proud to say that I did not vote for him four years ago, he did not give me a good reason why I should. During the last four years Obamas sheepskin have been falling apart, little by little. The last two months his sheepskin have been striped away to show the wolf he really is. The sad thing is that people refuse to see it, and that is what Obama is counting on. America does not need this kind of leader. America deserves a better, nobler leader. Sadly, Obama is not he. 

I want a leader that I can be proud of. A leader that is trying to be good.  I want a kind of leader that other nations will be jealous. To have such a leader that will lead America to greatness.  To have such a leader would be amazing. A lot of people would say that kind of leader only is in fictional story's. I don't think so. 

George Washington was a great leader. America needed him. Americans wanted him to be king. Washington refused, so instead he became president. Not only in his presidency was he a great leader, but before being president he was a leader of war. He was able to turn farmers, peddlers, cobblers, and etc into an army with service and with discipline, who defeated the English with the help of the French. The best part of George Washington, he did fight along with his army in war, and he served them and the early American people into independence. The better part of Washington is that he prayed for devine guidance to lead. He prayed over his men, and the land that he loved. There have been other leaders like him in history, and there can be once again.

To have a leader who will serve, and if needs be to discipline with love, humility, and faith will be a great leader. I pray to have that kind of leader that America needs and deserves. 

Cheers Eveyone!
