While some dogs are perfectly happy playing fetch, other dogs need a little bit more.

Quail meat is a high in protein low in fat all white meat. The meat of the bird and its eggs are often served as delicacies in fine dining restaurants at exorbitant prices. Why go and pay $20 for a single tiny delicious bird when you could pay significantly less for thousands of them being raised in your own backyard.
When you think about a snack of soft pretzels, you think of standing in line at the State Fair or Auntie Anne's for some expensive, but admittedly good, fresh pretzels. At very least, you think about those frozen soft pretzels in the freezer section of the grocery store that are okay in quality, but there's like six unsatisfying, tiny pretzels in a box. Somewhere along the line, I, like some many others, thought soft pretzels were really difficult to make. You know, like the kind of snack that you have to make your own bread dough for, and who has time for that? However, I was enlightened recently after talking to a chef friend. Apparently, you can use just about any pre-made dough, and so long as it is prepared right, it will make just amazingly easy soft pretzels. Of course, they can also be turned into regular pretzel and hard pretzel bites just as easily.
As Ogden Nash once wrote, forever putting romance into perspective for jerks that just want a quick way to get into another persons' pants, "candy is dandy but liquor is quicker." So thus, candy infused liquor must be like rocket fuel into naked town, right?

Wicker furniture and wicker accessories are a popular choice for both outdoor and indoor decorations. They provide a sturdy furniture alternative while being comfortable and attractive. Since wicker comes in a variety of designs and can also be easily painted, making it is popular addition to any decor. However, because many people choose it for outdoor decoration, wicker furniture can be subject to a large amount of wear and tear by the elements. Since it is a natural product made from reeds weaved together, it is much more susceptible to rot and mold. So special care is needed to keep it looking it's best and so that it doesn't just rot away someday.
While snacking has been the sword that has slayed thousands of dieters, sometimes the reasons that diets fail is because people deprive themselves of snacks. They eat small, healthy meals however after awhile they just go crazy and binge on an entire chocolate cake. I know, I've seen the horror countless times. The key to a successful diet is to eat healthy portion controlled meals, but also allow healthy and satisfying snacks so that gnawing hunger doesn't send you out to murder an innocent cake.
Potatoes, while not the most flavorful on their own when raw, are the most favorite vegetables of many people. The potato is not the most nutritional vegetable (especially when fried), but they are cheap and filling. However, after years of french fries, mashed potatoes, and baked potatoes they start to lose their appeal a little bit. The potato is bland by nature and after so long of using the same seasonings, that blandness begins anew. Instead of just slopping down that same old lump of mashed potatoes tonight, try instead reinventing them into a flavorful dish with these recipes.
Getting people to eat vegetables can be a serious task. This isn't just limited to children, I've cooked for my share of fussy adults who firmly believe pizza rolls are an appropriate vegetable side. However, being a sneaky chef and sneaking vegetables into food can be more than just grinding them up and adding them to soups and sauces.
In today's world, a world of high concentration laundry detergent and high performance washers, you would think the old stain removal technique of the past would have stayed in the past. However, while the detergent and washers may work better we all have a nasty habit of stuffing them full of clothes to get done with the boring task of laundry faster. To get done faster we stuff them way over the recommended amout. Because of our overstuffing habits, washers cannot clean as efficiently and clothes still come out spotty.
Smoking aside from running rampant with your health also stains everything. Nicotine itself is an oily liquid that seeps into our skin in its purest form. When it is released in cigarette smoke, nicotine is released with tar from the tobacco. The tar combined with the nicotine in cigarette smoke will stain finger, teeth, walls, and any other porous surface. These stains are not noticed immediately, but one day every smoker wakes up and notices their index and middle finger of their smoking hand have yellowed at the tip.
Ah, camping. The fresh air, the eerie silence of nature, the smell of camp fire smoke intermingling with aromas of the food cooking on it. There are a lot of great reasons to go camping, but not least of all is the potential for some amazing campfire food. It is hard to mimic the flavor of food cooked over fresh wood on a backyard grill, so food flavored with earthy smoke is a real treat for the whole family. The best thing about camp fire recipes is the simplicity. Many only require a frying pan, a pot, some tin foil, or even just a stick.
Ok, I'll admit it. I don't like canning. It means a hot kitchen on some of the hottest days of the year. It means clamps, jars, tongs that are all easily lost. It also means food that is potentially deadly if done even a little bit wrong. The whole idea has never been very confidence inspiring for me. However, canning isn't the only way to preserve the bounty from a summer garden. There is no reason to waste all that good produce when there are a number of other ways to keep it edible through the winter.
It's difficult to eat healthy most of the time. I mean, honestly, who would choose a kale and spinach salad over a double bacon cheese burger day after day? The easiest way to eat healthy is to ease into it. Start by replacing unhealthy foods with the healthier alternative that will preserve the taste, but will be better for your body. This doesn't mean just replacing these foods in a recipe, but rather replacing them in your pantry.
