Brazilian Lemonade

This is one of the best drinks you will ever try in your entire life. 


6 cups cold water
1 cup sugar
4 limes
6 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk

Mix water and sugar together until sugar is dissolved. Put in the fridge to chill until ready to use. Use soap and water to thoroughly wash the limes. You want to scrub really well because you are going to be using the whole lime! After you've washed and scrubbed your limes, cut the ends off the limes (DO NOT MISS THIS STEP!) and then cut them into eighths. Place half of the limes and half of the sugar water in your blender and pulse 5 times. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into the pitcher that you are going to serve it in. Discard the pulp. Repeat with the second half of your limes and sugar water. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk. Serve over lots of ice.

DIY: Candle Holder from Driftwood

dfgdfgWe at Good Ideas For You went down to the beach in Thorlakshofn, Iceland, where a lot of driftwood can be found. It was a beautiful weather so we finally rendered an idea that we had kept for a long time. Armed with a hammer, stand for candles and a very good mood, we made these candle holders from some of the driftwood that we found.


We made this 3-D wall art from driftwood and an old weathered stool.


In the gallery below you can see the outcome and some of the beautiful landscape in Thorlakshofn, Iceland :)

Great Under Sink Organization

These are great tips!

Paint a couple of clothes pins silver with craft paint, then attach them to the cabinet with super glue gel. Use them to hold dish washing gloves and a flyswatter.

Install a small shelf/towel bar right. It’s perfect to store sponges and the drain plugs.

How to freeze egg whites

Good to know!

  1. Put one egg white in each ice cube partition – Best to use this large silicon ice cube mold, which fits an egg white perfectly. If you have a smaller ice cube tray, you may find that two partitions are needed for one egg white.

  2. Freeze until solid.

  3. Pop out and place the egg white cubes into a labeled zip-top baggie and freeze until needed.

  4. When you are ready to use your egg whites, perhaps for a batch of merengue cookies, pop out the desired amount of egg white cubes before thawing them out. Place the frozen cubes in a bowl in the fridge and let them thaw out overnight, then they will be ready to use.
