Hosting a BBQ soon? Visit hardware and D.I.Y store, Zener D.I.Y Store, located at four outlets across the island, or order online for all kinds of essential outdoor BBQ equipment and more.
If your family is a fan of ice cream, but you’re looking for a healthier, cheaper option, try this trick to make your own – no ice cream machine required! Freeze fruits (preferably stickier ones like banana, mango, or avocado) until solid. Then cut them into cubes and blend; feel free to add in other ingredients like jam, Nutella or peanut butter, too.
Bonus: Minus the extra ingredients, this “ice cream” is vegan and gluten-free!
Got a love-hate relationship with onions? You love their flavour, but hate cutting them – in fact, you always start to cry? Next time, chill them in the fridge or freezer for an hour before peeling, slicing or chopping. This slows down the release of propanthial S-oxide, the chemical responsible for teary eyes. Also, use a sharp knife to avoid crushing the onions, which releases more of the chemical. Last, while cutting, breathe through your mouth, not your nose (bite a toothpick, if it helps).
