Cook and Culture: Always something to be grateful for this silly season

  • Digital

Something good to know, Pinterest: control + scroll wheel = makes pictures bigger.

Pro Tip – when using Whatsapp for business

To brand yourself in a classy and professional light, make sure your profile picture is a friendly yet tasteful photo of yourself. Avoid memes and photos of you having a tequila shot too many.

Make sure your profile picture is professional

  • Party Plate

Having some unannounced guest over in this season of holiday and celebration? You can whip up a delicious platter without breaking the bank.

Arrange some of these ingredients on a platter and you will have your guest talking about your hosting skills for months: biltong, pretzel sticks, nuts, Camembert/Brie, grapes, figs, olives, apple slices, pomegranate, Melba toast, cherry tomatoes, guacamole, hummus and some micro herbs (to make it fancy).

  • Home Remedy

Activated charcoal is trending. What does it do? For under R30 at local pharmacies, activated charcoal can cure a hangover, help with nausea and diarrhoea, it can be used as a natural cleaner and body detox and is often used as a teeth whitening remedy. This is definitely a must-have.

Activated charcoal powder can be mixed with water and used to brush teeth helping you to have a whiter brighter smile
