油泼辣子

油泼辣子

用料

辣椒, 盐, 白糖, 芝麻, 八角, 花椒,  姜片, 香叶, 桂皮, 油

油泼辣子的做法

辣椒买回来,快速冲洗,用纸抹干或者晒干
用料理机打成较大粒的辣椒面
将辣椒面、盐、白糖、鸡精、芝麻放在碗内,搅拌均匀
香叶、辣椒、大蒜、桂皮、八角、花椒、姜片准备好
油烧热,放入调料炸出香味
待姜片四周变黄微卷,将其滤出
油继续烧至冒烟
离火,稍顿片刻,用小勺子慢慢舀入,边倒边慢慢搅拌。切忌一下子倒入,油温过高,很容易糊掉
慢慢将油全部倒入,油一定要没过辣椒和芝麻,喜欢辣椒油的,可以多放点。百度上还有人说加入几滴醋可以提味,你们自己看着办吧!我个人没感觉出来,更喜欢不加醋的
小瓶子高温消毒,抹干
凉凉之后将其分装

Price / Rent Ratio

Property price / rent ratio = property sell price / (rent/month * 12)

The property sell price = $200,000, rent per month = $1,500

The property price/rent ratio = 200,000 / (1500*12) = 11.1

The rent income will pay off the house in 11.1 years.

If the property price / rent ratio = 1- 15, buy the property right away

If the property price / rent ratio = 16 – 20, rent is better than buy a little bit

If the property price / rent ratio = 21 above, rent is much better than buy a property

快速长头发,不掉发,让头发茂密的方法

总结来说就是给头发补充水分和油分,和护肤概念一样,头皮屑和狂出油都是因为头皮太干,不要害怕用适当的油分来帮助调节。

我现在来详细说说用到的产品。

1. 把100g的rosemary的叶子放入茶包里面,放入500ml的水煮10分钟,水开了闷5分钟,用咖啡纸过滤出来的水,放凉,加rosemary的精油2-5滴

rosemary的叶子在costco可以买到,是干的,属于调料品区

rosemary的精油 ,还蛮便宜的,30ml的也才10刀左右。

把这个混合液体放入喷瓶里面,每次洗完头发,喷头皮和头发然后吹干。头发会变得非常强韧和有光泽,而且这个也促进头发生长。记得每次使用前摇匀

2. 油分,我敢说现在市面上大部分的护发产品效果都不如这个简单的油

给大家介绍一个pre-wash的概念,在洗发前护发的方法有时候更有效率。

先用上面那个rosemary的喷雾把头发和头皮稍微弄湿。

然后用jojoba oil ,grapeseed oil ,almond oil 等轻油(不要橄榄油)的混合油或者单一油按摩头发和头皮,然后留在头发上2-5小时,如果着急半小时都有效果。然后洗头发,这时候可以不用市售护发素。

如果洗完头发,吹头发的时候打结,把头发吹半干,然后用moroccan oil  大概2 dollar硬币的大小,均匀涂在头发上,再吹全干,然后请自己看效果,不sleek你找我。

这个护发routine其实一点不麻烦,养成习惯了就好了,而且材料都好买,大家试试呗

紅豆年糕

2cup 糯米粉
半杯粘米粉
Baking Powder 1t
雞蛋2個
糖 半杯
牛奶 1 1/4杯(2%milk)
oil 1/4到1/2杯都可以

做法:Preheat oven 350度.
mix 所有材料,我是用蛋糕模烤的,模子塗點油把材料倒一半到模子裡放烤箱烤15 到20分鐘拿出,把豆沙陷脯上再把余下的一半材料倒上,再烤20分鐘左右就可以了.(最好趁熱脫模,冷了很難脫).

材料: (成品約600g) 
紅豆400 ml(約350g),砂糖170g,麥芽糖(maltose)2大匙,鹽1/8小匙。

工具:  
濾網1個,果汁機/blender。

做法: 
1. 紅豆放進小鍋裡,注入約3倍清水,煮開之後關小火,繼續煮到紅豆熟爛,約需3小時。期間要偶爾攪拌,如果水燒乾了就再加水。
2. 分兩次用果汁機打成泥狀,然後用濾網過濾(過濾的時候,用碗裝半碗水,濾網底部需接觸到碗裡的水,這樣可以把豆沙析出到碗裡),濾不下去的殘渣丟棄,沖洗濾網,再接著濾新的豆沙泥,如此重複直到豆沙全部濾完。
3. 濾好的豆沙倒到炒鍋裡,用中火拌炒至水分變少…如果水很多,要炒比較久,炒到水分比較少的時候,可能會冒很大的泡,容易濺傷或把廚房弄髒,這時要用鍋鏟輕輕刮過鍋底(露出鍋底),這樣鍋底的水氣可以直接蒸散,過幾秒鐘再刮一次,如此可以避免冒泡。
4. 炒到豆沙變成濃的流動狀液體,倒入砂糖與麥芽糖、鹽,同炒均勻即可放涼。

愛廚注:
1. 這是比較濕潤的豆沙餡,而且沒有加奶油,味道清爽,很適合當冷食點心的夾餡,我用來做銅鑼燒和愛窩窩的餡料,很不錯,口感比較接近市售的罐頭豆沙。
2. 放涼之後還會變得比較黏,所以不要炒得太乾,以免放涼後口感太乾鬆。如果炒得太乾,可以在放涼後加入蜂蜜或一點水(牛奶也可以)攪拌均勻就可以了。
3. 做好的豆沙要放冰箱封存冷藏,並儘快用完。
4. 我沒有註明水量多少,因為熬煮時間與火候都會影響,而且只要最後炒豆沙時掌握適當的溼度即可(水分多就大火炒乾,不小心炒乾了就加點水)。

備註: 
1杯 = 240 c.c. = 240 ml
1大匙 = 1 tablespoon = 15 c.c. = 15 ml
1小匙 = 1 teaspoon = 5 c.c. = 5 ml
* 如果份量標示為“少許”,意即少於1/8小匙 ﹔至於份量可依個人喜好增減或對成品影響不大的,則標示為“適量”。

【红豆年糕】

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

1.红豆 1 杯,不用泡,洗净直接放高压锅,加水略没过红豆即可(水不要过多)。等高压锅上气后适当调小火,压12-14分钟即可。晾凉待用。这时的红豆软而不烂。

2.糯米粉+粘米粉(粘米粉占1/4左右)总重 1 磅,加红糖1杯— 1.5 杯,将米粉和红糖混匀。将红豆(连红豆汤一起)倒入米粉内,再慢慢加入牛奶,调成比较稠的糊糊。

3.将模子底铺油纸(我用的是湿咖啡滤纸,再刷上一层油),模子四壁也刷上油。将调好的米粉糊糊倒入模子里。大蒸锅烧开水后,将模子放进蒸锅里,旺火蒸50-60分钟,用牙签扎入年糕查看年糕是否蒸熟,如果拔出来的牙签比较干净,没有面糊即表示年糕蒸熟了。

4.蒸好的红豆年糕一定要凉透,用餐刀蘸水先在四周划一圈,这样年糕容易被扣出来。这时的红豆年糕虽然凉了,但仍然比较软粘,用刀切比较粘,你可以将刀蘸水来切就比较容易了。

这是蒸之前:

蒸好的红豆年糕:

吃不完的年糕,最好用保鲜膜包好,放冰箱2-3天后,你会发现红豆年糕变得很硬,这样很容易用刀切。可以切成厚片,放少许油将年糕片煎成外焦内软来吃,也可以用微波炉将年糕片加热回软来吃。

『注意』

1.如果用纯糯米粉做,年糕会比较粘,加适量粘米粉可适当降低粘性,口感会比较好。

2.红糖的量可以根据个人口味调整,喜欢吃甜的可以适当多加红糖。我这次放了1杯红糖,做出来的不是很甜很甜的。

3.红豆煮好后如果水比较多,可以用漏勺将红豆捞出来,适量加红豆汤到米粉中,多余的红豆汤可以加糖当饮料喝~~~

4.因为蒸的时间比较长,一定要加足水量。蒸的中间最好查看一下水量,若发现水量不足要及时补充。

【椰汁糯米糕】

不是按传统年糕方法做的,因为加了鸡蛋和baking powder,这样做出来的不太粘,口感很好,放凉了也不会变硬。只能称之为“糯米糕”,算不上是年糕。

『原料』

糯米粉一袋(16 oz):用量杯将糯米粉盛出一杯来,替换上一杯粘米粉,这样做好的糕粘性小易嚼。

黄油 1/2条(4 tbsp.):微波炉转一下将其融化。

鸡蛋2-3个:打散

糖 1杯半

浓椰浆(coconut milk)1杯,牛奶 1.5杯左右

Baking Powder 1 大勺(tablespoon)

香草香精 1-2 小勺(teaspoon):香草香精可以去除蛋腥味

『做法』

1.将上述所有原料在一个大容器里混匀,牛奶最后放。一边搅拌,一边加牛奶,用牛奶用量大约为1.5杯,根据糊糊的干稀度来加牛奶,最后调成比较稠的糊糊。

2.用13 x 9 inch.的烤盘,底和四壁刷上油(普通炒菜油),将面糊倒入。放进事先已经预热到375°F烤箱里烤40-50分钟(190°C摄氏度),当表面呈金黄色即可。

3.晾凉后切块即可食用。

吃不完的用保险袋或保险膜包好,放室温保存3-5天糯米糕不会变硬的。

(红豆年糕和椰汁糕是从网上查看了一些方子后,本人做了适当调整的。方子里的原料和用量可以根据个人喜好相应变动,不必严格不变。)

Frequently Asked Questions about purchasing homes at foreclosure

Make sure that they give you a Special Warranty Deed, not just a Quitclaim Deed.

How can I find out as much as I can about the property?

The primary sources for information are county assessors and recorders offices, title
companies, the trustee, a real estate agent and the owner. You may also be able to gain
a wealth of knowledge from a neighbor.

How can I find out what’s on the preliminary title?

Experienced foreclosure buyers have established relationships with title companies
where they can research information on distressed properties and then will use the title
and escrow company when they purchase properties. Many investors also purchase title
information from the trustee because the winning bid at auction may be subject to other
liens in some cases. If the loan in default is the senior lien, then any other liens will
typically be cleared out for the highest bidder at the auction (confirm this with a local real
estate attorney or the trustee). If the loan in default is a junior lien, then the highest
bidder will hold the note to that lien subject to any senior liens against the property.

How do I bid on an Auction property at a public sale?

The sale usually takes place at the. county courthouse. The trustee usually provides the
date, location and opening bid. The majority of trustee sales require you to have certified
funds in the form of cashier’s checks. The property will be sold to the highest bidder at
the auction and typically the trustee will prepare a trustee’s deed that transfers the title to
the purchaser at the trustee sale. Often you will be required to have the full amount you
want to bid at the auction, but that varies so check with a local real estate attorney.

Who will I be competing with at an auction?

When bidding at the auction, you compete against the lender, other investors, and even
some first-time homebuyers, especially when the home is in a desirable neighborhood.
What does it mean if the foreclosing lender does not bid at the auction?
If the foreclosing lender does not bid at that sheriffs sale or auction, it probably doesn’t
-, want the property. This may be due to excessive superior liens, such as IRS or tax liens .
. Some investors say that if the lender doesn’t bid for the property at auction, you probably
shoulon’t either.

What are the risks involved with bidding at a foreclosure auction?

Auctions are frequently postponed, wasting your time and effort. It is rarely possible to
inspect the property. To be safe, you should have a title search performed, which can be
costly if you are trying to research many properties. Unusually large cash outlays deter
most investors (note that this can also be seen as a benefit). Certified checks for 10 of
the purchase amount may be required with the balance due in weeks, days or even
hours. Improper research in any of these areas can lead to devastating results.

What is the biggest mistake to avoid?

Paying more than 70 of value for a property. Calculate a property’s potential bargain
based on market value, outstanding liens and repair costs. If the profit isn’t there on a
particular property, move on to the next one. Realize that every property you check out
is not meant to be a deal. Likewise, every deal you come across is not necessarily a
good one. Conduct your analysis carefully and accept the bottom line when you derive it.

About Foreclosure

If a borrower falls behind in his monthly house payments, the seller or lender may try to take his house back. This is generally called foreclosure. If a house is foreclosed, the borrower may los not only his house, but may also all of the money he has invested in it.

What are some ways that you can prevent foreclosure?
– The borrower can stop the foreclosure by curing the default – in another words, ,make up any delinquent payments plus costs related to the trustee’s sale. The borrower can do this at any time until 11 days before the trustee’s sale. If the borrower is able to make up the payments, he will also have to pay the lender’s expenses related to starting the foreclosure process.
– After the 11th days, the lender is under no obligation to accept a cure of the defaults.
– Upon cure of the default, the trustee is required to execute, acknowledge and record a notice of discontinuance of the trustee’s sale.

A foreclosure is very serious. Not only is a home in jeopardy, but also one’s credit rating. The borrower should contact a lawyer immediately if he is served with any court papers or notices. The sooner the borrower seeks assistance, the sooner a lawyer can try to deal with the problem. The borrower should not wait until it’s too late! If the borrower cannot afford a lawyer, you can try to refer to the local legal services office or county bar association.
