Using a Stand Mixer to Knead Bread Dough
Allow your stand mixer to do the heavy lifting for you and knead your way to smooth, perfectly elastic dough without breaking a sweat. While hand kneading can be relaxing for some cooks, it is also time consuming and repetitive, taking two to four minutes longer than mixing. All bread dough, it turns out, can be kneaded in a mixer. It is especially well-suited for kneading sticky doughs such as Ciabatta, a wet dough that can be challenging to work with by hand without making a mess. All stand mixers are not created equal when it comes to kneading dough. According to Lauren Chattman, author of Bread Making: Crafting the Perfect Loaf from Crust to Crumb, when lightweight machines are used for heavy duty tasks, the motor quickly burns out. While using a dough hook is necessary for kneading the dough, you may want to mix the ingredients first with a spatula or regular beaters to ensure everything is incorporated. Consumer Reports recommends a heavy-duty mixer that rotates the bowl while mixing. The basic process is the same regardless of how you knead it. Collect and weigh your ingredients, combine them, knead the dough, and set it aside to rise. Certain recipes call for adding warm water to the mixer bowl and sprinkling the yeast on top, then allowing it to sit until the yeast dissolves. Other recipes, such as Fleischmann's, instruct you to combine flour, salt, sugar, and undissolved yeast in a bowl before gradually adding a warm milk, water, and butter mixture. Combine the ingredients in the order specified in the recipe, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Continue mixing until a shaggy dough forms — at that point, you can begin kneading. This is a critical step in the preparation of many types of dough, as the gentle, constant work assists in the development of the proteins that give the bread its structure. Ascertain that the mixer's dough hook is attached and set the mixer to medium-low speed for eight to ten minutes. If you're working with a wet dough, you may need to increase the speed.

Why Is Electrolyte Water Essential for the Body?
We are all aware that the benefits of drinking water are very remarkable: from controlling body temperature and blood pressure to enhancing mood, memory, and productivity. But do electrolytes added to the water, increase the benefits of H2O? What are Electrolytes? When dissolved in water, electrolytes are minerals that contain an electric charge. The meals you consume and the liquids you drink, keep your body electrolytes. These minerals, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, transport via the body and use their electrical energy, which include: · Balance your body's water amount · Balance the pH level of your body · Move your cells with nutrition · Stir your cells with garbage · Regulate your nerves, your muscles, and your heart and brain · Help reconstruction of tissue damaged Electrically loaded minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium are injected into electrolyte water. Electrolyte water can sometimes be called mineral water or alkaline water. Whether you think it or not, seawater and tap water even contain different kinds of salt electrolytes. It is not recommended to drink salt water; it has a correct balance of minerals, which is essential for health promotion. Drinking water-electrolyte was specially developed with an optimal concentration of only the most advantageous electrolytes to boost hydrating and other body processes. Like sports drinks, electrolytes have been added for increased hydration but sports drinks often contain high quantities of sugar and calories. What is Electrolyte Water Up to 60% of the human adult body is comprised of water. Your body cannot execute all its vital tasks when you lose even a modest bit of this 60 percent. Electrolytes are dehydrated and control your hydration. Electrolyte levels in your blood may be too low in some circumstances, resulting in an imbalance. An electrolyte imbalance might adversely affect your health. Symptoms maybe – · Fatigue · Fast or irregular heartbeat · Numbness and tingling · Confusion · Muscle weakness and cramping · Headaches · Convulsions 1. Improves Performance During Workouts It is recommended that electrolyte-enhanced water be drunk frequently while practicing to restore the electrolytes lost in sweat. This improves the functioning of your heart, brain, muscle, and nerve system. 2. Supports Nervous System All of us can imagine sports athletes picking up sports beverages to recharge their lost electrolytes, but not only athletes have to maintain their bodies fluid and hydrated. Understanding the need for continuous moisture keeps us safe and productive in the end. Even a minor loss in moisture can result in reduced cognitive capacities, less attention and awareness, and less time to respond. Your reaction time is equal to someone with a blood level of alcohol at dehydration of 3% by .08%. 3. Protection from Heat Stroke Hot environments place you in danger from moderate heat rash to life-threatening heatstroke in a range of heat-related diseases. Your body usually handles heat by releasing it and sweating it across your skin. However, in hot temperatures, this cooling system can begin to malfunction, resulting in a dangerously high body temperature. You need to limit your heating time to avoid heat-related ailments. However, it is also essentially important to get sufficient fluids and electrolytes to keep your body cool. You can get electrolyte waters of different flavors all enriched with electrolytes and essential minerals at sites like eBay such as TrueGether. They offer timely discounts to their customers and all the products are very affordable!
Using Frozen Bread Dough to Make Monkey Bread
While cinnamon rolls are an almost irresistible treat, they do require a significant amount of time and effort. Monkey bread achieves the same flavors with significantly less time and effort, making it an ideal anytime treat when you're craving something freshly baked and sugary. This monkey bread recipe makes the most of frozen bread dough and adds caramel sauce to make the finished product even more delectably addictive. Total Time: 60–70 minutes | Prep Time: ten minutes | Serves: twelve to sixteen Ingredients: - 2 loaves (each weighing 1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed - 1/2 cup melted butter, plus additional for the pan - 1/2 cup tightly packed brown sugar - 1/4 cup sugar, granulated - 2 tsp. cinnamon powder - 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping, or any other type of caramel sauce Directions: - Coat the inside of a large Bundt pan or tube pan with melted butter using a pastry brush. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. - Each loaf of dough should be cut into 20 to 24 small balls. In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted butter and dough balls. Toss until they are coated evenly with butter. - In a small bowl, combine the sugars and cinnamon; sprinkle over the dough balls and toss again. Finally, drizzle the caramel syrup over the balls and toss once more. - Layer the dough balls in your tube pan. Allow the dough to rise for 30 to 40 minutes in a warm place, or until it has roughly doubled in size. - Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until the monkey bread is golden brown and firm to the touch. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a cooling rack to cool. Allow the bread to rest in the pan for 2–3 minutes before turning it over and tipping it onto a serving plate. Serve immediately after it has cooled sufficiently to avoid burning those tiny monkey fingers. Tip - If desired, glaze the warm monkey bread with a simple flat icing made with milk and powdered sugar, whisked together, or with regular vanilla icing from the supermarket, gently warmed in the microwave until barely pourable. - To further kid-proof the monkey bread, scatter a handful of chocolate chips and mini-marshmallows between the layers. - Spread coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans between the dough balls for a more adult version.

How to Make Biscuits in a Bread Machine
Whether you believe it or not, the concept of using a bread machine to make biscuits is a little deceptive. While the bread machine takes care of the mixing, the biscuits must still be baked in the oven. Despite the somewhat misguided concept, using a bread machine to make biscuits can significantly cut down on kitchen time. By attempting it, you can demonstrate it to yourself! All ingredients should be combined in the bread machine's bin. After adding the dry ingredients, add the liquid ingredients. - On the machine, select the dough setting and allow the dough to mix and process. - Remove the dough from the bread machine once the dough setting is complete and place it on a floured surface. - Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it is approximately ½ inch thick. - Cut your biscuits into circular shapes using a circular cookie cutter. - Grease a cookie sheet and line it with the cut biscuits. - Allow the sheet to sit for at least an hour or until the biscuits have doubled in size. - Arrange the biscuit tray on the middle rack of the oven. Ascertain that the stove is ROOM TEMPERATURE. - Preheat oven to 425°F and bake the biscuits for approximately 15–20 minutes. - Remove the biscuits carefully from the oven, allow them to cool slightly to prevent self-burning, and serve them warm! Tip Pre-heating the oven prior to inserting the tray is not necessary. Warning Always wear protective gear such as oven mitts or potholders when removing trays or pans from a hot oven.

Must-try Lousiana-style crabs in Bali
Bali is one of the best places to enjoy seafood in Indonesia. Jimbaran, for example, has long been one of the island's most popular spots to savor this particular dish while enjoying an amazing sunset. For those longing for Lousiana-style seafood, there are at least two crab restaurants available in Bali; allowing you to eat with your bare hands on the table, without any fancy plates and cutlery to bother you. The Holy Crab Following its popularity in Jakarta as the 'it' place to eat Alaskan crab, Bali's Holy Crab on Jl. Petitenger No. 50 offers a great combination of world-class seafood and traditional Louisiana cooking techniques in a chic yet cozy dining atmosphere. “There has been such a great response to The Holy Crab from food lovers in Jakarta that we are bringing the whole concept and experience to Bali. It has always been a dream of mine to be a part of the island's culinary scene, which has a broader international audience,” said The Holy Crab owner as well as executive chef Albert Wijaya. Choices available on the main menu include Dungeness crab, king crab legs, snow crab legs and lobster with prices ranging from Rp 88,000 (US$7) per 100 grams for the Dungeness crab to Rp 120,000 for the king crab legs -- all served in a delicious secret recipe sauce with mild, medium and hot levels of spiciness. Sausages and corn are also available as additional dishes. According to Albert, the restaurant's crustaceans are imported straight from Alaska and some are from Indonesia. Crab Bar Situated on Jl. Batu Belig 106 in Seminyak , the Crab Bar was founded by famous Indonesian chef Ragil Imam Wibowo in August 2014 with the aim of becoming the first destination for people seeking to savor Lousiana-style seafood on the island. “In Bali, if people want to eat pork, they will head straight to Ibu Oka. We want that to happen to us too; we want to become the first place people recommend when they talk about eating crab in Bali,” said the restaurant's general manager Don Domingo. For newcomers, the Crab Bar's most popular dish is CB's Hot Bag which consists of 500 grams of mud crab, 150 grams of prawn, 200 grams of yabbies (Australian freshwater crustaceans) or clams, sausages and corn. A portion costs Rp 495,000. The CB’s Cold Platter, priced at Rp 450,000, is also recommended with cold Mud Crab, 200 grams of prawn, 200 grams of clams and four pieces of oyster or yabbies. The Crab Bar offers six types of sauce for its hot-platter menus with three levels of spiciness (mild, medium and TNT). The choices include original Lousiana-style with smoked Cajun butter, oriental-style CB’s Bali Sauce, Bangka curry sauce, chili sauce, teriyaki black pepper and garlic butter. While for the cold platter menus, foodies can try garlic mayo, tomato tartar and tom yam mayo sauce. - See more at: http://www.jakpost.travel/news/must-try-lousiana-style-crabs-in-bali-otImxpP0OU7Hu4aJ.html#sthash.rQELFKmb.dpuf

3 luxury sustainable spas in Bali
Bali has a lot of spas; in some areas, every third shop is a spa. All varieties of spas can be found as well -- from local to international award winning spas. In recent years, a lot of people have become more conscious of what they put on their skin. The skin absorbs up to 60% of what you put on it, so with increasing amounts of chemicals in many products, it can lead to allergies or worse. One way to avoid this is to choose a spa that uses naturally made products and takes an approach that is kind to your skin. Local Indonesian jamu (traditional medicine) methods have always done this but a few luxury spas in Bali not only use natural products but also take the spa experience to a new level of comfort. The Spa at Alila Soori Villas The Spa is housed in a sustainably built house with a view of the Indian Ocean in front. Entering this warm and opulent hideaway, the central spa area is dominated by a beautiful pool that instantly adds a sensuously relaxed atmosphere. The traditional Balinese Beauty Ritual is two hours of pure bliss. Balinese lulur is an ancient village remedy with its origins from the rice farmers of Bali that is recognized as traditional medicine. The treatment is believed to help warm the body, relieve aching joints and help in the recovery of troubled or loose skin. Locally sourced sandalwood, fennel seed, star aniseed, eaglewood and fenugreek are blended together to use during this healing remedy. It is a 60 minutes Balinese Massage, body scrub, body mask and mini facial. The massage uses natural oils and you can choose a beautiful aromatic blend to suit your mood. After the massage, you are gently scrubbed using the herbal warming mixture and then wrapped in a cocoon while the gently heated massage table ensures every pore is cleansed and every muscle relaxed. The therapist performs a revitalizing mini facial as you relax on this wave of warmth. Not only do you feel like you are floating on a cloud after the treatment, but you are also assured that only the most natural ingredients have been used during this process. If you loved the products used, there are a wide range of Alila Spa products for sale to take with you. A particular favorite is the Black Volcanic Soap that is made from Balinese volcanic lava. Ojas Spa, COMO Shambhala Estate This famed wellness retreat outside Ubud is the ultimate luxury hideaway in the forest with an ethos based around holistic principles. If you are not staying here, you can come and get pampered at the beautifully serene Ojas Spa. Ranges of treatments are offered here, including hydrotherapy and Ayurveda treatments. This Zen space is very soothing and, set among vast sounding grounds; it is a quiet retreat to indulge in a treatment. Signature massages are done using specially blended oils made on the estate, sourced from local products and 100 percent natural. The Shambhala signature massage is an hour-long treatment and uses innovative long strokes and medium pressure to both relax and revive spirit and mind. Set in a light airy room looking onto a garden, complemented by clean lines to leave the mind uncluttered, this deeply therapeutic technique performed by a highly skilled therapist feels more like a four handed massage thanks to the expertise of the therapist. This is a deeply relaxing and aromatic experience that leaves the skin smooth and supple. Facials are also available using a range of their homemade products called PURIFIES. These products are based on the principles of aromatherapy, incorporating only premium grade oils free of parabens, petrochemicals, artificial fragrance and color. The PURIFY Holistic Facials are deeply calming and catered to your skin type using these products, along with steam and specialist massage techniques to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. Not only are the products used at the Ojas Spa kind to your skin, but also to the surrounding environment. Fivelements Puri Ahmisa This healing hotel is located just outside Ubud in a scenic spot with the river flowing through. The spa is perched right along the riverbank so you hear the flow of water easing past as you are experiencing some incredibly therapeutic and natural treatments. This award-winning spa is unique in that not only does it have a wide variety of beauty treatments, but also healing rituals are on offer from Balinese healers and priests. This means that both body and soul can be nurtured naturally in this wonderful sustainably built bamboo spa. Acupressure with Pak Ketut is designed to trigger the body’s self-healing abilities and uses energy transfer to help heal. After starting with transference of energy, the ritual is designed to relieve both physical and mental strain. This can relieve deep-seated tension and trigger the healing process. The healing rituals harness the power of both natural herbal ingredients and energy. The beauty rituals use a wide variety of natural elements found throughout Bali. Probably one of the most healing plants is the coconut. Virgin coconut oil is one of the most healing oils, naturally antibacterial and nourishing. The Coconut Harmony treatment is a deep massage with this oil, followed by a moisturizing bath of coconut milk, the pure blended aromatic Shakti Oil and scattered with Frangipani flowers. A hewn rock bath gently sheltered by foliage looks over the flowing river below melding nature and the spa together. This wonderful bamboo structure is open meaning that it is a totally sensory experience within nature.
How to Make a Cake in a Bread Machine
A bread machine does not only have to bake bread. Use it for mixing and baking your homemade cakes. Cakes are the same as quick breads, as they use baking soda or baking powder for leavening instead of yeast.Depending on your machine, use either the quick bread or the bake-only setting. The quick bread setting skips the rising step needed for yeast breads, and the bake-only setting will require that you mix the ingredients together before adding them to the machine. Whichever you choose, the bread machine will let you bake your cake without your oven. Make a Cake With Quick Bread or Cake Cycle - Combine the boxed cake mix, eggs and oil in the kneading bucket of the bread machine. - Plug in the bread machine and press the "Quick Bread" or "Cake" button and the "Light Crust" setting. This setting mixes and bakes the ingredients and differs from bake-only functions. - Push the "Start" button to begin mixing. - Press "Pause" when the bread maker finishes mixing the ingredients. - Open the lid of the bread maker and stir the ingredients more with a rubber spatula if it does not resemble a smooth cake batter. - Pull the kneading paddle out of the pan with kitchen tongs. - Close the lid and restart the machine. - Allow the bread machine to complete the baking cycle. Insert a skewer into the center of the cake and remove it from the machine if the skewer comes out from the cake clean.- Cool the cake in the baking pan for 10 minutes before turning upside down on a cooling rack. Make Cake with a Bake-Only Function - Mix the cake mix, eggs and oil by hand with a hand mixer, stand mixer or a spoon until smooth. - Remove the kneading paddle from the bread bucket and pour the cake batter in. - Lower the bread bucket into the bread machine and set it for the "Bake-Only" cycle and the "Light Crust" setting. - Wait for the baking cycle to complete. The machine will beep. Test the cake by inserting a long skewer into the middle. Remove the bread bucket from the bread machine when the tested skewer comes out without crumbs. - Place the bread bucket on a cooling rack for 10 minutes for the cake to cool inside the pan. Turn the bread bucket upside down over the cake cooling rack and remove to unmold the cake. Let the cake finish cooling on the cake rack until completely cooled before serving or decorating.

How To Make Mee Goreng Mamak (印度炒面), Fried Noodles with Indo-Malayan Flair
I love Indonesian food. Based on their history and interactions with the rest of Asia, the cuisine has subtle nods to Chinese, Thai, and Indian dishes, but with their own special (and usually nice and spicy) twist. Mee goreng is perhaps my favorite of the Indo-Malayan dishes. From the picture, it looks like a standard chow mein-esque stir fry, but the flavor involved is absolutely incredible and definitely sets it apart from its 'noodle cousins'. (Especially when you top it with fried onion pieces and just the right amount of sesame oil.) Mee goreng is such a popular dish that you can buy instant packages of it all over Asia. In fact, I have some friends who lived in Western Africa that enjoyed instant mee goreng as a steady staple through the week.

How to Make Bread with Self-Rising Flour in a Bread Machine
Salt, flour, and a leavening agent are combined to make self-rising flour. While self-rising flour is not traditionally used in conjunction with bread machines, it can be used as a substitute for bread flour. Because self-rising flour contains baking soda and salt, making bread in a bread machine differs slightly. It also does not stand up to the rigorous kneading produced by a bread machine, nor does bread flour. Therefore, if you must use self-rising flour in a bread machine, you must make several changes to the standard bread-making process. First, combine all of the liquids in the bread machine pan. The order of the ingredients is critical in order to keep them inert before mixing begins. To combine effectively with the yeast, the liquids should be at room temperature. Fill the bread machine halfway with self-rising flour. Add small amounts of self-rising flour at a time to form a powder layer on top of the liquid. Continue to add the self-rising flour until the recipe's amount is reached. Combine the remaining dry ingredients and seasonings in a mixing bowl. The specific ingredients added to the mixture are determined by the bread recipe. Because self-rising flour already has a high salt content, cut your recipe's salt intake in half. In the center of the self-rising flour, make a well or indentation. Fill the center of the well with yeast. This shields the yeast from contact with the liquids. When the liquids and yeast come into contact prior to mixing, the yeast becomes active and causes a mess in the machine. Snap the bread machine pan into the bread machine's proper position. Choose the bread cycle you want to use for your recipe. Set your bread machine's timer according to the bread recipe. To begin the bread-making process, press the start button. Tip The type of flour used in the bread machine affects the texture of the bread. This is because the amount of protein in each bread type varies. Bread flour is best used in a bread machine because it contains a lot of protein, which helps the bread rise and has a good texture.
