SKINNY MULTIPURPOSE SHREDDED CHICKEN I find myself using recipes that call for shredded chicken at least 1-2 times each week. For that reason I always cook up a large batch of shredded chicken in my slow-cooker every Sunday and then store it in the refrigerator or freezer to use at a later date. Doing this will save you time but will also make last-minute dinners a breeze as you already have the cooked poultry on hand. It is always much easier by arlene

Instead of buying the flavored butter you can just make them yourself so that you can make sure they are all natural. There is a huge list of things you can add to butter to make it flavored and it will depend on what you need it for.

The "one chore per day" house cleaning list. "This is so doable and covers everything!" First, this is not "one" chore per day - some days it is two or three. Also, these "15-20 minute" chores are things like "Go through each room and put everything away" or deep cleaning everything in all of your bathrooms in under 30 minutes, or doing a week's worth of laundry (washed, dried, folded, and put away) in one day.

upon hours scrubbing your oven clean? Stop it! Instead, make a paste using water and baking soda and spread it all around the inside of your oven. Let it sit overnight, and then take a wet rag to wipe out as much of the baking soda mixture as possible. Next, spray some vinegar on the inside of your oven and wipe down with a wet rag. Then turn your oven on low for about 20 minutes to let it dry. by lilly

How to use beauty blender: I run one under luke warm water (not hot/not cold) till it gets darker pink then squeeze out the water until the Blender isnt dripping. I try to squeeze out as much water as possible! It will double in size when wet. I prefer using it wet because it soaks up less of your foundation and helps blend better. Then i apply dots of foundations evenly all over my face then go in with the blender and press lightly to blend. by fashion clothing

Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets and unfulfilled dreams. There's too much uncertainty, cruelty and heartlessness. Take the time to slow the world down. Take the opportunity to smile and let someone know they make a difference. Don't be afraid to tell someone what they mean, what they bring to your life and more importantly, don't hestitate to love selflessly, without limits and believe that everything happens for a reason. Today might not be perfect, tomorrow might be another challenge, but you survived yesterday and gained experience. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, embrace it. Have faith that you've done enough and touched enough people that everything will work out. Nobody said that it would be easy, but through defeat, experience and triumph, you will find out who you are and it will all be worth it. by agnes
