Alright, a lot of people think waterless cooking is an ordeal but its not. I want to demystify waterless cooking with this simple post. The truth is that cooking is easy when you have correct ingredients and if you also know what each ingredient’s role is in the equation.
I love to cook, I can host friends every night for a week in a row. I love to feed people and so I tend to just invite guests over. I love watching cooking shows cos I tend to learn more about different ingredients while watching and this helps to know how to modify other meals. And you my friend can handle cooking with ease, especially easy meals like fried rice. You will see how easy it is. Read along.
Cooking Fried Rice With Waterless Cookware
Best practice for most kinds of fried rice is to cook your rice first. A little bit of salt is needed here. That way you can always use left over rice to make this meal. Most times I cook my rice the night before and store in the fridge for dinner the next day. That cuts down my cooking time a great deal.
You can have brand new dinning chairs for a fraction of the price of a new one. The tool I used has now become my favorite house fixture tool. The Staple Gun.
Let me tell you more:
I got my dinning table set in 2012, the seat cover came in nude colour and velvety in nature. It’s easy to clean however, very easy to dirty as well. And with 2 active boys around my efforts are unnoticed everyday. I got an idea sometimes ago to find a clear plastic (transparent rubber sheet) to cover it so that it can just be wipeable but never found a good one.
Until my last trip to ikea, when I found this nice fabric that is like plastic yet sophisticated enough to be elegant. I also got my staple gun from a hardware store. But today was the day. As usual someone spilled Fanta (Orange Drink like mirinda) on the chairs and that was it, I had had enough. Brought out my tools, got the whole house working and here is the before and after.
All I did was unscrew the nuts attaching the seat to the metal frame, used the seat to measure the fabric needed for each seat. Living about 3 inches on each side to allow for space to staple.
I removed the black fabrics off the base, and then stapled the new fabric on top of the old one. The first staples went to the 4 sides of each seat to keep the fabric in place, then all around doing the corners last. The corners requires a bit of care so as to have a clean final look.
After showing my before and after picture, many wanted to have this kinda tools so as to do the same.
However, the challenge became how and where to find the tool in Nigeria.
Then I did a search to know where to find the staple gun and lo and behold it’s only a few thousands of Naira on Konga.com.
Buy yours now on Konga So instead of getting a new dinning set for 60,000 you only pay for fabric at the nearest market, staple gun, staples – all less than N20,000.
And you can use your staples again and again.
This concept will work well to change those simple ugly looking office chairs as well.

This is good news for those of you fellow online shoppers out there. Amazon is giving you a chance to try out their amazing Prime shipping service for free for one month.
You and I know that the main reason we order from sites like amazon is not only because they have the best products and customer service, we also don’t like lining up in stores to buy. However the shipping cost can add up quickly if you make online purchases all the time like me, then you must sign up today or go back to the nightmare of department store shopping.
Since I signed up Amazon Prime account, I have saved a tonne of money on shipping fees.
So how does it work, You pay a fixed annual fee and you get most amazon items shipped to you free of charge. This is usually a standard 2 days shipping. Of course if you want it earlier then you may want to pay for overnight shipping (extra cost). However if you plan your shopping well, you wont need to worry about amazon shipping fees ever again and that means no more wasting money of high shipping fees. The trick though is to start your shopping early so you can beat the rush.
So if you have an event or festivity ahead and you have a list of things to order online, what you must do now is to make a list of all the people you want to buy a gift for and write down an idea of what you can get for them. Or make a list of items you need around the house. Then go over now to amazon and start adding things to your cart. Just make sure that you pick only the items with the ‘yellow check mark’ and a blue ‘prime’ right beside the item price like these:
Don’t forget to put your favourite tea beside you- its essential or coffee. At least you are not running around like a headless chicken in the stores right now.
Looking for the best bibles for kids – boys and girls?
Search no further. Here is a review of what I believe is the best bible for kids (boys and girls). It has been a great addition to our family. I have done a video below to tell you more about our experience so far. And in all my conclusion is certain that the CEB Deep Blue Bibles series are the best Bibles for kids – boys and girls. After the video below, I have also describe what I think will help you decide on which way to go.
From day one, I had always desired that my boys would love God’s words as much as I do (at least)
So when I attended a ladies conference that had a nice book stand with a good collection of kids bible, I knew I needed to pick one for my then 6yr old. And I must say I fell in love with this deep blue Bible for boys and girls. My son is very inquisitive and so I was so sure he would love this bible. He was just becoming a good reader at the point and so it was for him love at first sight.
Up till today, he carries the bible everywhere. Watch the video to know more about my experience.
Before buying another bible, You must read further down in this review I call the best bibles for kids- boys and girls.
If you are looking for the number one bible to buy for a boy or a girl, then I will recommend to you that you look no further because this is by far the best bible for kids.
Kids Love It
From the moment I brought this bible home from the conference, my boys were very excited. It was originally meant for the 2 of them. My almost 6 then and the 2.5 year old. However, because big brother was already starting to read, it automatically became his. He carried it everywhere. Of course the first love was for the right to ownership.
Prior to this, we had been using bible.is during our family devotion and he also owned a few children’s bible before that. So he was already familiar to the bible stories and videos. He was also beginning to realize that there is a difference between the children’s bible and the real bible. So he was really happy to finally get a real bible.
Very Engaging & interactive
This bible is really cool. With some amazing kids characters reading along and discovering God’s words together, it was love at first sight. Adults love study bibles because the additions make the bible come alive and relevant to people’s lives. As soon as your kids find this bible, they will find that the content is engaging and hardly would they want to drop part with it.
Reading the bible created a reading habit in him. He would take his bible to the washroom and forget himself there. Many times I will be looking for him around the house and find him in the washroom completely lost in God’s words. Its really fun to see. As kids go through this bible, they seem to be interacting with this other characters in the scriptures.
Bet You Can!
All through the CEB Deep Blue bible, there is this section called bet you can. It gives you a portion of the scriptures to read within a specific time say 2 minutes. He loves it. He would time himself and race through reading it. Its truly fun. And this is one of the reason I am convinced that this is ones of the best bibles for kids – boys and girls.
Many of Their Questions Answered
This bible is full of great practical devotional notes. Because the bible was written long ago, the english structure can be a bit boring to younger readers. However, this bible makes it fun for kids and even adults. Many of the facts that are hard to explain are clearly explained in this bible. For sure it catches the attention of my boys. It has many bible trivia and other interactive elements to attract boys’ and girls’ inquisitive minds.
Did you know?
This a section that tell you more about the bible days, helping your child understand the context surrounding each portion.
This bible is similar to a real study bible only that its made for kids.
I have found myself even as an adult reading this bible and really enjoying it.
Truly Best Bibles for kids – boys and girls
So again, if you wanted to know the best bible for kids – boy and girl, you have found it. It can serve as a birthday gift, christmas gift or even and school or church gift.
Of course you don’t need an occasion to encourage a child develop a serious desire for God’s words. You will be glad you did.
Just Bought Another Copy
This bible is available in printed paperback, hardcover, imitation leather, and DecoTone bindings. Ages 7–12 are recommended to use this bible but thats actually their thoughts because I just purchased another copy of the same bible for my younger son. And boy does he love his new bible. He is 6 years old. The same age his big brother was when he got his.
He had some work to get done over the summer vacations and I promised to get him his bible if he can finish the vacation activities. I ordered it and only gave it to him after he finished his work. He was so excited. His was not the leather back like his brother.
Now when you see the 2 boys, you see each with their bible. They do all the interactive elements together now. They learn memory verses.
Now during our family devotion they each read out loud from their own bibles.
Get them excited about God’s word
This bibles come in the CEB (common English bible) translation.when I was going to pick out this bible, the first thing I did was to read a few familiar scriptures inside. Example John 3:16, Genesis 1:1, John 1:1. This is the way I choose my bibles always. I want to see how each bible translate the verses I am familiar with. I use that to know how close to King James Version it is. In this case I also check Songs of Solomon. That is a romantic book in the bible. I wanted to know how clear it will be for the boys. And I must say that it was easy to read so I knew it would be the perfect bible to get my kids excited about God’s word.
Downside to this Bible
Well the only thing I have notice is not too bad but it is that CEB is not really a common translation of the bible. Though I am turning many parents around me into fans for the deep blue bible, others kids in church that already have bibles come with other translations like KJV, NLT, NIV…I completely think that kids must have the easy to read translations or they will be bored reading the bible and loose interest completely. So I recommend this bible and the CEB Translation. My boys now know many of their memory verses in CEB translation which is good all the same.
Where to Buy it
You can get the best bibles for kids – boys and girls at most books stores and also on amazon using the link below.
I bought my Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser about 2 years ago. I had been looking for a way to floss without much stress. I had tried using the regular flosser and it was always so cumbersome until I discovered the waterpik water flosser. I decided to add this Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser Review to WiBi so that other people like me would find it and hopefully it will serve you too.
Which is the best Water Flosser?
While I was doing my research on which water flosser to buy, my aim was to know which was best on the market. Before buying the Waterpik flosser, I read a few reviews on Amazon. The Product actually has over 8,000 reviews as at the time of this post.
There are many reasons why I bought this Waterflosser. However the main reason is that it is easier to use and quite effective. I did not know how useful it would turn out to be but I must say that this has turned out to be one of my best investments in my dental hygiene.

Attention: There is a newer version of the WaterPick water flosser, you may want to check it out on Amazon as well
Dentists don’t stop to emphasise how important it is to not only brush one’s teeth twice a day but to also floss regularly as well. They say brusing is great but no matter how much you brush you will still be leaving out some areas in your denture that the brush can not reach and thats especially the space between a tooth and the other. If you have ever gone to the dentists for cleaning you would be shocked to see the kind of dirt coming out from the teeth you brushed just a few minutes before the appointment.
Dentist today recommend you even floss with kids and get them to learn the practice early. However I always find the floss really harmful. Each time I tried to use the normal floss, I injure my fragile gum and therefore I find myself not doing it. Until one day when I thought to myself there must be a simpler way to it. And yes, that was when my research started. I am glad I found Waterpik.
What makes the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser so popular?
It is a very versatile Waterflosser
I think it’s really a brilliant idea to use water to floss. Using a toothpick can be dangerous. I am always afraid of poking my gums and really its so difficult to reach all the corners of your mouth. Using the string to floss has never been my style. I was always afraid that I would pull to hard and cut my gum with the string. This Waterpik Water Flosser is excellent for people with braces, implants, crowns, bridges, or periodontal pockets because water is flexible it will get into all the hidden places. According to WaterPik, water flossing for about a minute a day comfortably removes up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas as it gently massages the gums to improve overall oral health. They also claim that Waterpik Water Flossers are the only brand clinically proven to be up to 50% more effective than traditional dental floss and up to 80% more effective than Sonicare Air Floss for improving gum health.
From my experience in the last 2 years, the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser has really helped to improve my oral health. Every night when I use it and most mornings, I feel that my teeth are so clean and I agree that for me it has been better than the traditional dental floss. However, I am not able to prove that it is 50% more effective, if you are very comfortable with the traditional dental floss then you may not need to spend so much. In my own opinion, I will buy this again.
Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser 10 Step Water Pressure
I am so glad that this waterflosser has steps of pressure. I can only imagine if it had only the first 2 levels of pressure or just the last 2. I find the 7th step most comfortable for me as well as most effective for removing tough particles from the teeth. When I tried to use the 8 – 10th steps, I found it quite painful on the gums while the lower ones were to weak.
There are a few things that has made the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser less than perfect for me. The first is that there is only one copy of the main water flossing tools in the set. This means that you will need to buy more copies if you want to share it with your family.
It’s a little bit too big to carry along while travelling. I travel quite a bit and I have never packed the waterflosser on a trip. I may need to find a smaller water flosser.
It’s not too noisy but it is not as quiet as a traditional dental floss (smile).
Regardless of all these things. I am glad I bought the Waterpik Ultra Water Flosser and I look forward to reviewing the new version of it.

How Often Should I use Waterpik Waterflosser?
How Often on a normal condition?
You may wonder how many times do I need to floss in a day. Yes, thats a valid question to ask.
According to the American Dental Association, in order to maintain a good dental health, you should floss at least once a day and brush twice a day.
Do you have Gum or tooth disease?
What if you have a gum disease. Once I discovered my son was beginning to develop a cavity on one of his tooth, and many times food would get cut in there. We started using the waterpik waterflosser after each food or snack. It gave him so much comfort until we got the cavity treated.
So if you have a known disease discuss with your dentist and they may recommend you use you waterflosser more regular than usual.
Do you have Braces or other dental work?
For those with braces, implants, bridges, crowns or any other dental work that is hard to keep clean, I will suggest you use your Water Flosser more than once per day. You may even consider buying a cordless model to go with you when you are away from home.
