Easy Recipe For Making Candy Apples

Classic desserts never get old; that's why they call it classics! Today, we suggest a great and easy recipe for making Candy Apples. But not just any candy apples, but the kind you will definitely want to enjoy with a fork and knife.

Here is our version of Creative Candy Apples and what do you need in order to achieve the same result:
·         six apples;
·         half a dozen of skewers;
·         pot;
·         pastry brush;
·         bowl for water and bowl for topping;
·         a candy thermometer;
·         baking sheet;
·         half a cup of light corn syrup;
·         a couple of cups of sugar;
·         three quarters of a cup of water;
·         toppings like toffee, chocolate chips, jelly bears, candy corn;
·         (optional) food coloring of your choice;

First, make sure your toppings are shredded into small bits so they will adhere to the apples nicely. Pout each into a bowl and continue towards the next step. Apples should be speared by skewers in the top part, where you'll usually find small leaves. Then, move onto cooking the syrup with sugar and about a cup of water. This will require medium to high heat and you stirring it until the sugar is dissolved. Afterward you can bring it to a boil. Take the bowl with (warm) water and the pastry brush soaked in it, because you aren't supposed to stir in the pot anymore, but are advised to brush the sides of the pot in order to stop the forming of crystals. To get a soft candy mixture, simmer it until the temperature hits 290 degrees Fahrenheit.

Now, take your apples by the skewers and dip them, one at a time, completely into the candy. You could swirl your apples in the tilted pot to make sure they are fully coated. Next, it's entirely up to you what toppings you would like on your teeth-soaring apples. Dip each apple in a bowl you prepared earlier. If there is any space left on a certain apple after you dipped once, move onto another bowl of toppings and repeat the step. Feel free to combine them in any way you think they might be more delicious or look better. When done, place all apples on a baking sheet and transfer into the fridge. Bon appetite!

Tiny Floating Home

This small floating boathouse, was turned Karen Jenkins and her husband into a nice and cozy home, a place where a family of five enjoys full comfort. The house is almost 50 years old, and when they found it, it was in a bad shape. They bought it, and started searching for ideas of how to design this 220 square feet interior. One of the most challenging things was that the size of a boathouse is restricted to only one-story and they could not use up any more lake space. So after a thorough search, the family decided to make a loft out of the house, to make it look bigger. In order to make the house look like it has a lot of space they installed window dormers so they went up four feet and put in some windows. They also used the 4 foot porch. Some of the studs were damaged by water and thus they had to replace it and had to redo the pluming and electricity. Water and electricity are supplied by the marina and the family chose to use an incinerator toilet. This house is a great example of how to make a tiny space look both big and cozy. It is ideal for a family and also takes you closer to nature.

Log Cabin Interiors Design Ideas

The country house.To be far away from the noise and the bustle of the town, we opt for a house at the outskirts or for one placed in a rural area. The country house represents, for many persons, a vacation or weekend home, where they choose to spend the warmest days of the summertime.
The comfort is essential to have a successful vacation, and it is because of this reason why some people avoid spending their time at countryside. The rural houses are endowed with ventilated and spacious rooms, but, because of their rural style, some of them seem being deprived of comfort.
Still, an old rural house can also be stylish and elegant, and, at the same time, can provide the same comfort as an urban house. You can give a new ‘look’ to your house by using old, traditional objects, found on site or by changing radically the rural aspect of the house, by using modern decorative objects.
But a house placed in the heart of the nature requests to be adorned with as many natural things as possible. Therefore, the specific chromatic palette of such a decoration is made up of pale shades, while the furniture is made of wood, its too many ornaments being left aside. Both the ceiling and the floor have a massive wood based structure which, if there are not deteriorated, it is not advisable for you to replace them.
The ceiling and the floor – generally, in old houses, both the ceiling and the floor are of massive wood, painted in natural colors which we suggest you to leave them as they are (maybe just to restore them, in case they are deteriorated).
The walls – as a rule, they are commonly white. They can be improved by using natural or decorative stones – a new material keeping the same rustic shade, or they can be painted in retro colors, as green, orange, brown, mustard yellow, purple, dark pink, turquoise, blue, combinations of black, white and red; all of them are suitable for a retro-styled house.
The windows dispose of frames made of wood, often painted in white. Not even here can you make great changes, taking into account the fact that the windows doesn’t fit the overall architectural style of the house. But you can give some color to the wood frames choosing a shade in accord to the ones of the curtains and the drapes. On the other hand, most of the changes could vise the furniture and the decorations of the rooms. The extant furniture could be restored or replaced with one of the ‘classical furniture’ category. Made of massive wood, this will contrast the floor and the ceiling, and the final outcome is both impressive and elegant.
As each detail matters when it comes to interior decorations, don’t forget the object dedicated to this purpose only. The decorative pillows may give a vintage aspect if you use a thick material, of a sac; the lightening objects made of wire and covered with textiles can be easily integrated in the setting, while some vases for flowers made of small sticks will enliven the room. In order to create a transition between the interior and the exterior, you can also fit out a terrace or a verandah. Also, to gain space, transform the loft of the house in a guests’ room, a children’s room, a bedroom or a relaxation area.
