Are the UPVC sliding doors and windows good for houses?

I am using Fenesta UPVC sliding doors and windows. It's very good to use and long lasting. If you use wood or aluminum doors and windows then you need much maintenance which is irritating but, with UPVC you will never face this problem. I will recommend you Fenesta sliding doors.

Freezing ricotta cheese

You can freeze ricotta cheese, but there are a few things to keep in mind. While the flavor won't be affected, the texture may change due to its high moisture content. Here's how to freeze and thaw ricotta cheese: Prepare for Freezing: If you have an unopened container of ricotta (and it's still within the expiration date), you can freeze it as is. For leftover ricotta, follow these steps: Stir the ricotta with a spoon to ensure even freezing. Remove the cheese from the container and press it down with paper towels to drain excess moisture. Wrap the cheese in plastic wrap, either as a whole or in individual portions (using an ice cube tray makes thawing easier). Transfer the wrapped ricotta to a freezer-safe bag or an airtight container, pressing out as much air as possible. Label the container with the date. Place it in the freezer for up to two months. Can You Freeze Ricotta Cheese? (allrecipes.com) Thawing and Using Ricotta: The best way to thaw ricotta cheese is by leaving it in the fridge for about five to six hours (but not more than eight hours). Thawing at room temperature is not recommended. Use previously frozen ricotta in cooked dishes like quiches, pastas, or casseroles. It may become slightly grainy or watery after thawing, but you can strain any excess liquid and use the rest

Bayou barbeque from urban accents is no longer made. Can anyone recreate the blend, so I can make my own?

If you'd like to recreate a similar flavor at home, I recommend trying the following approach:
  1. Ingredients:
    • 1 tablespoon paprika
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to your preferred level of spiciness)
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  2. Instructions:
    • Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
    • Rub the spice blend onto your choice of protein (such as chicken, pork, or ribs) before grilling or roasting.
    • Adjust the quantities based on your taste preferences. Feel free to add more cayenne pepper if you want it spicier or adjust other seasonings as desired.
  3. Cooking Tips:
    • For a smokier flavor, consider adding a pinch of smoked paprika or liquid smoke.
    • If you prefer a sweeter profile, increase the brown sugar.
    • Remember to adjust the salt level based on your dietary preferences.
  4. Enjoy!
    • Use this homemade Bayou Barbecue blend to add a touch of New Orleans flair to your grilled or roasted dishes.

How to unseize my melted chocolate

Two solutions, one preventing and the other fixing Preventing Seizing: Always ensure that the bowls and utensils you use are completely dry. Opt for metal spoons instead of wooden ones, as wood might retain moisture that could transfer to the chocolate. When melting chocolate using a double boiler, make sure the water level is a safe distance from the bottom of the insert containing the chocolate. The water should be hot but not boiling to prevent splashing. Alternatively, turn off the heat before placing the chocolate on top of the double boiler. Never cover warm chocolate, as condensation formed under the lid might drip into the bowl. When microwaving, use a low-power setting with short bursts of time while stirring often. Fixing Seized Chocolate: Transfer the seized chocolate to a double boiler and gently heat it. Add 1 teaspoon of hot water at a time and stir the chocolate vigorously until it becomes smooth again. Gradually, the chocolate should regain its smoothness and shine2. Remember, if you're planning to use the chocolate for a drizzle or sauce, adding a little boiling water is ideal. If you're using it for baking, consider stirring in solid vegetable shortening at a ratio of 1 tablespoon for every 6 ounces of chocolate.

Make sohan qom

Sohan-e Qom, also known as Persian Saffron Brittle, is a delightful candy originating from the city of Qom in Iran. It's buttery, crunchy, and heavily scented with saffron, making it a perfect treat to enjoy with tea. Let me share a recipe for making this addictive sweet at home: Sohan-e Qom Recipe Ingredients: 3/4 cup white flour A pinch of ground cardamom 2 egg yolks 2/3 cup sugar 2/3 cup rosewater 2 tbsp butter 100 g cold water 1 cup thick saffron tea (made from steeping saffron threads in hot water) 2 tbsp wheat germ flour (optional) Instructions: In a small bowl, mix the saffron with hot water and let it soak for 15-20 minutes. In a non-stick pan, spread foil on the table and grease it with a brush. Add white flour and wheat flour to the pan and fry until the raw smell disappears. Stir in sugar and rosewater, reduce the heat, and constantly stir until it boils. Add the butter and continue stirring until it melts. Pour in the saffron water and mix well. Optionally, add wheat germ flour for extra texture. Spread the mixture onto the greased foil and let it cool. Once cooled, cut it into pieces and enjoy! Remember, Sohan-e Qom is not just regular candy; it's a unique combination of flavors that you'll have to try to fully appreciate. Enjoy your homemade saffron brittle!

Freezing ricotta cheese

You can freeze ricotta cheese, but there are a few things to keep in mind. Let me guide you through the process: Drain the Ricotta: Before freezing, drain the ricotta cheese by pressing it down with paper towels or a dishtowel. This helps remove excess moisture. Wrap It Up: Wrap the ricotta in plastic wrap or parchment paper to protect it. This step ensures that the cheese stays fresh during freezing. Pack It Right: Place the wrapped ricotta in a freezer bag and squeeze out the air. Label the package with the date so you can keep track of how long it's been frozen12. Freeze: Pop the ricotta cheese into the freezer and let it freeze for up to two months. Thawing: When you're ready to use it, thaw the ricotta cheese in the refrigerator for about 24 to 36 hours. Stir it once it's thawed. Keep in mind that the texture may be slightly grainier than the original texture of the cheese, but it's still perfectly usable in cooked dishes like quiches, pastas, or casseroles.

Potato soup

you could use a pressure cooker instead to cook your potatoes. Its always faster and potatoes get the perfect texture. Please make sure you have put the lid on as plain simmering potatoes will take time of the lid is not closed. Also you can use a steamer, I have found steaming is easier than simmering
