A Beginner’s Guide to Composting at Home

by Marie Rattray @ quiet hut

Composting is nature’s own waste management process that nutrients are recycled back into an ecosystem. In other words, it is the process of taking organic materials, such as leaves, vegetables, fruits, logs, eggshells, coffee grounds, banana peels and dead animals and placing them in a pile or container along with water. In the composting time, you will turn your pile periodically to encourage the beneficial bacteria to thrive. This will create high heat and breaks down the natural organic materials over time into a dark, rich, fertile soil that gardeners fondly nickname Black Gold. By composting at home, we cannot only

So you’ve decided to take the plunge and start cooking Vietnamese food. Congratulations! Prepared properly, Vietnamese food is healthier for you, it just plain tastes amazing. Learning a new cuisine can be fun but daunting too. It is like learning another language.

"Useful" isn't a word you see much on restaurant websites. It doesn't quite fit with all the artfully styled food photography and action shots of chefs who fancy themselves as White Heat-era Marco. But how many of our dining choices are based, not on dazzling cooking or the lure of a shooting-star chef, but on convenience, location and user-friendliness?

Water Conservation for Kids

by Marie Rattray @ quiet hut

Water makes up more than two-thirds of the weight of the human body, around 50-75%. Babies and kids often have more water (as a percentage) than adults – being born at about 78%. So water is the most essential to our survival, next to air. In fact, a person can survive for 8 weeks without food but without water, he or she will not be able to survive for more than 5 days. Water is not only essential to the human body, it also plays a vital role in our daily lives. We use water to do countless things such
