Gift Ideas For Kids & Teens With Disabilities

The holidays are such a magical time of year! Most people enjoy spending time with families, hearing the Christmas music playing in the stores and the general happiness and positive energy people are tossing around like confetti. For some parents the holidays can be a bit more of a challenge and not because of our grinch attitudes or dislike of the season. The holidays are different for some parents because the holidays are different for our kids. As a mother of three beautiful kids, a girl and two boys (both boys have disabilities) I know how unusual it can be to help your kids enjoy the season as much as others. Our oldest boy has ADHD and struggles to complete tasks or enjoy quiet, calm activities like others his age. Our youngest has Asperger’s which makes it a struggle for him to enjoy the wide range of emotions so many kids express this time of year. The holidays are not always easy for them simply because they experience things differently and don’t enjoy the same activities. Th

3 Dishes You Must Taste Right Now!!!

There is a plethora of food out there to discover - so much, that it’s virtually impossible for anyone to have tried it allYou can do a good job of it though, as there are a ton of restaurants in a variety of destinations, that serve up cuisine from all around the world. Thanks to the internet, many people can now try out recipes from different countries, withjust a few taps of a device. This makes it easier than ever for people at home to try out a variety of new foods, to liven up their dinner times, without having to leave the house and pay for an expensive vacation. Whether you love Chinese food or Indian food, the range of cuisine stretches so far, you will most likely not have tried everything they have to offer you. Why not take the time to explore dishes you have never tried before too, such as Japanese or French.


Katsu Curry


You may have already heard of the delectable dish called Katsu Curry, but have you tried it? It’s a delicious plate of food containing chicken or tonkatsu pork, coated in crispy panko breadcrumbs, paired with sweet and sticky Japanese rice, all covered with a tasty sweet and spicy vegetable curry sauce. The perfect balance between sweet and spicy, is a pleasure for the taste buds and is something you need to try at least once. It is no wonder that it’s incredibly popular in its country of origin, Japan. Many countries have now started to sell their own versions in supermarkets, making it incredibly easy for people to try out the dish for the first time.




Indian cuisine is one of the most popular around the world, with many countries adopting the flavors into their fusion recipes. You may have already sampled a taste of the incredible dishes, such as Tikka Masala or the mild and creamy Korma. A dish that is often under the radar, is the humble Biryani - a plate of rice, fried in spices and onions, paired with a sauce and meat of your choice, like the deliciousones on offer at Urban Tandoor. A popular option is a vegetable sauce with meat, but you can have absolutely anything with a Biryani. Hearty and mild, it is perfect for beginners and for those who can’t handle too much spice in their food, unless they opt for a sauce full of chilies!




One of the most popular dishes in Japan is called ramen. You may have seen packets of this food in supermarkets and other stores, and while these small packets of goodness are tasty,they are nowhere near the real thing. Authentic ramen can take days to make, due to the all-important flavoring from the broth, that needs plenty of time to work its magic. As the noodles sit in the flavorsome broth, the rest is up to you. Tonkatsu pork or delicate chicken, is a popular choice amongst fans of ramen, as well as a hearty choice of vegetables, such as spring onions, carrots, or potatoes. All ofthe ingredients soak up the scrumptious broth, to tantalize your tastebuds with every bite!
