Valentines day special Shrimp 65

Guy's you might wonder why am I posting my Valentines day recipe now, although it's been a while and we all even forgot how we celebrated it! I know, but I have an answer and the answer is that I have already started my research now and I am working in two fields one is Thesis and the other is a special topic that I am interested in. I was always fascinated by cancer research this is what I wanted to do my entire life. I was looking for an opportunity and you know what it knocked my door, but in a wrong time because I already stared my thesis on the other topic. And I also do not want to loose this opportunity so, I accepted it. Now my days including weekends are loaded with work. I love it, I love to be busy always but I love only when the experiment works, and last weak our experiment flopped!! :( I cross my fingers and hope that it works this time!

Now coming to the recipe and todays recipe is "Shrimp-65", sounds great isn't it!
My hubby is a big fan of chick…

Lauren's Valentines day Icing for Cup Cakes

Lauren is one of my wonderful friends. She is very charming, cute and a typical American girl. I can chat with her the whole day, time just flies away when I am with her. She made some delicious cup cakes for her boyfriend on Valentines day and also shared some with all our friends. Here is the recipe for icing that I took from her. I am sorry the cupcakes are so delicious that I even forgot to take a snap. But next time we will ask Lauren to make some more and make sure to snap them!

Icing for 12 cup cakes:
4 cups confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1/2 cup Crisco
2-3 tablespoons milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract (optional)

In a bowl mix Crisco, salt, vanilla and 2 cups of sugar. Add milk and remaining sugar alternately; mix until smooth and creamy. Add more sugar or milk if needed for good spreading consistency.
I hope you like this wonderful recipe for icing. 

Guest Post by Ms. Kendra Thornton:Asian Almond Chicken Salad: Take Home the Taste of Honolulu

Time for a guest post, few days back I received an email from Ms. Kendra Thornton saying that she wanted to write a guest post on my blog. I didn't know who she was before but after a little research I found out a lot of interesting things about her. I feel very honored to share this article of her on my blog.  Here, about Ms. Kendra - in her own words:

"My name is Kendra and I am a long time travel expert who has been packing my bags and traveling the world since I was 3 months old!
