Butter, Butter, Butter!

In search for the butter with the closest taste to my husband's favorite, Queensland Pure Creamery Butter, I got to pay a lot of attention to all the kinds of butter found on the shelves.

  1. Pure Butter - is 100% milk. You have salted and unsalted variants. Unsalted type is otherwise called as Sweet Butter (not the same as Sweet CREAM butter). 
  2. Sweet Cream Butter- is made from milk or cream that hasn't been fermented; it is made from pasteurized cream and hence sweeter as compared to those made from soured cream. Tillamook has this.
  3. Whipped Butter- is ideally pure butter, but most labels list "min. 80% milk fat"; often more fluffy and lighter textured, great for toast and last add-ons on dish preparations.
  4. Cultured Butter- has more fat and is excellent for use in baking flaky pastries like croissants; is tangy to taste because of fermented cream.
  5. Spreadable Butter- in variants of soft, semi-soft, super soft is a blend of milk/cream and oils like vegetable oil, olive oil, canola oil, sunflower oil. About 40% min milk. My favorite is the Western Brand.

    Mainland's Buttersoft is pure spreadable butter.
  6. Butter-Like Alternative Spreads- is for those who want low cholesterol, non-gluten options. Nutelex is one brand with many variants. Bertolli has an Olive Oil Spread. Meadowlea has Canola Spread. Ballantyne has Avocado blend which they say is a healthy alternative.

Other Local Brands around Australia are:
  1. Aldi Beautifully Butter - from pure to spreadable butter
  2. Coles brand
  3. Woolworths Homebrand butter
  4. Bronhill Organic Butter

Container Gardening: Planting KangKong in Pots (Water Spinach)

Kang kong is a well-known leafy vegetable used in many Philippine dishes. It is quite easy to grow they say. There was a time when you can find kangkong patches on most streets in the neighborhood. It is also called water spinach or swamp cabbage. It thrives in wet, moist areas. Many grow it solely in water. It quickly grows under sunny spots but carers should keep the soil moist. Else, it may die. Some tips: Not much intstructions on planting. Just bury the seed and keep the soil moist or muddy.  Kangkong grows all year round. Cut maybe an inch or two above the soil for continued regrowth and harvesting. Winter may see your plant dying but often, it regrows by spring. You may fertilize with nitrogen twice a month. You may harvest whole plants at about 1 to 2 months. Kangkong has the tendency to spread. Grow in a container for easy maintenance or harvest whole plants to control your supply. It is best to use potting soil for your containers. Putting regular soil in restric

What Does Romans 8:28 Mean About All Things Work Together For Good?

All things work together for good Romans 8:28 is a well-known verse that Christians usually memorize or list down under "God's Promises." It says, "We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God:  those who are called according to His purpose." Is this really a promise from God? Is this a sure promise that we can claim? Is Romans 8:28 true? Or is the Bible lying in this particular verse? Because, by experience, people know that NOT all things turn out good in the end. So, what exactly does this Scripture mean? And is it for everyone? Let's take a closer look at Romans 8:28 and understand what the verse is actually telling us today. Romans 8:28 in different bible translations We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose. (HCSB)/similar in form with NIV. And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who lov

Why Reading the Bible Is Not Enough

Reading the Bible is not Enough Reading your Bible is not enough . Hearing God's message from preachers is never enough. 3 minutes or 5 minutes with God using Our Daily Bread or some devotional books is not enough. We Christians need to stop making excuses for our laziness. We need to deal with the fact that we're backslidden. We've grown cold. There's something terribly wrong when we're comfortable and satisfied with reading a few verses, and content to just sit back and listen to others talk about the Word of God. We need to be IN the Word. You and I need to be students of the Word. You need to hear from God and encounter Him yourself. Receiving encouragement and teaching from others are good but you need to discover and process God's very words yourself. Listening to other people's experiences, ideas, and understanding about God and His Truths can only carry you so far in your faith life or Christian walk. It's your personal time wit
