Grill Your Pizza

Have you thought of grilled pizza?  Of course you have! But have you attempted to make it? Well, I haven't until a friend who was passing by asked me to get the griller on and let the heat work up.   Everything was pre-prepared.  The pizza dough which was around palm size was stacked up in one container, and 3 types of cheeses and sliced vegetables were ready to be cooked.  Once we finished our dinner, all I had to do was get some nutella out and spread it on some dough, grill it, and start eating.

Make a 'diet' cake

Have you ever heard of cake made with diet soda?
Well, I haven't, until Lisa Lillien who appeard on abc's the view explained the following:
Get a box of  ready cake mix and instead of using the usual eggs and oil replace them with a can of  diet soda!
For example a chocolate cake mix with diet coke, or a white cake mix with a can of diet cherry soda.
They say it's 170 calories instead of 250 per slice.
 I am not sure if this is really healthy but it sure cuts down the calories.
Lisa Lillien will soon have her own show "Hungry Girl" on the cooking channel.

This is the best Coffee

I haven't been enjoying my cup of these days.
Most of the time, its too bitter, or too bland. 
And for those who know me, it's not just a problem with my coffee machine(s)!
It's the coffee itself.
So, having had LAVAZZA coffee lately I want to say and remind you all that it is so so so good.
It is the best in my book!
