25 Bucks From Synovate - Global Opinion Panels

I like the points system of Synovate - Global Opinion Panels because even if you don't qualify for the survey, you still get to earn fifty points credit. Somehow this helps add up to your overall points. Surveys are not as much as others but they are a lot simpler to complete. I was able to redeem quite a number of checks already though not in bigger amounts but it still works for me.

How to Make Greek Savory Cheesecake Easily

A cheesecake is a wonderful dessert that most people enjoy eating. You can make several variations out of it. If you like jello recipes, then you can make a recipe with a jello-topped fruit or plain jello topping. You can add anything that you like to the original recipe including marshmallows, nuts, chocolates, fruits or anything that you can find in your pantry or refrigerator.

If you have read the culinary history, then you will know that cheesecake was originally created by the Greeks and served to athletes during the first Olympics. The Romans adapted the recipe and spread it throughout Europe. The immigrants brought the recipe together with them when they moved to America and other parts of the world. Thus, the entire recipe that we currently have is no longer the original one, but a mixture of the original recipe together with the mix of local taste. Hence, we would like to know how the original recipe of our beloved food tastes.

We are going to discuss how the recipe tastes like when it was first introduced by the Greeks. This is a savory dish that is similar to vegetable and cheese quiche with a different texture. The original recipe is very easy to make, and you will surely love it especially if you like to make genuine international recipes.
This recipe is wonderful if you like savory meal ideas. The combination of olives, vegetables, sour cream, feta cheese, breadcrumbs and many other ingredients make this dish a gourmet feel. It is a good variation from the usual egg-based savory dish.

To make the crust

Grease a springform pan with 2 tablespoons of butter and preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix on cup of breadcrumbs and one-fourth cup of grated parmesan. Spread the mixture over the pan in order to form the crust.

The mixture

Get a pound of cream cheese and beat it until it looks fluffy. Add four eggs, a cup of crumbled feta cheese and a cup of sour cream. Continue beating the mixture until it becomes very smooth. Fold in a handful of chopped olives, a chopped red bell pepper, two teaspoons of chopped basil and few pressed garlic cloves. The half of the mixture will be poured into the pan. Get some artichoke hearts and chop them. Mix and stir them into the other half of the mixture and pour them all together into the pan.

Bake the cheesecake for about 45 minutes until it is golden brown. Let it cool to room temperature before you start decorating it with additional crumbled feta cheese, chopped black olives and chopped red bell pepper.

Online Errands

I appreciate the guest post, Ignacio Phillips

I am so grateful that I can get so many of my errands done online. I can’t remember the last time I had to go to the bank or write a real check. All of my bills are set to pay automatically from my checking account and I can deposit checks through the ATM. I also don’t miss getting customer service over the phone. It’s so much easier to send an email and get a response or chat with someone online. I also made the switch from cable to satellite TV by going to and setting everything up. I also do most of my shopping online so I don’t have to fight the crowds at the mall. I can’t imagine how busy my life would be if I actually had to drive around and run errands all the time. Things would take so much longer and I would have to spend so much time in my car. Not to mention the amount of money I would probably have to spend on gas to get to all of these places.

Post Break: Lifelock Protection

Isn't it scary that everything in today's world revolves mostly online?  Online is the new way to shop, bank and do other things.  This means your identity is also prone of being so exposed and distributed over the net.  Don't be surprised if you'll receive offers from this company, bank and stores.

There was one time when I was offered to open a membership for one of the hardware chains, surprisingly all they asked from me was my home phone.  I was quite puzzled at first but upon typing in my home phone number, VOILA! All my information appeared such as name, address, etc.  So that made me think, for somebody who wants to steal your identity it's so easy to access it just by choosing random phone number?

It's hard to say if having to purchase an identity theft protection services can be beneficial to protect your precious information.  Upon checking Lifelock reviews it seems like a good idea to be protected this way. Having Lifelock might seem like a waste of money for some people but considering the offers included in their package, it's just like paying for your peace of mind.  They will constantly monitor the net for your information whether it's being exposed most especially in those ile sharing sites.  Public and court records monitoring will also be provided, credit bureau reports, bank account protection are just among their major concerns t make sure you are kept under wraps.

It's advisable to read through reviews to better guide you whether you'll need to try their services or not at all.

Making Life Easier

Thanks for the guest post by Jo Levy

With all the running and errands required to keep our household going, I was using over a tank of gas a week in my car. In an effort to try to minimize my gas use and reduce my carbon footprint, I am going to look at the new wild blue deals and see if I can get internet service at my house. We live out in the country so many companies do not over cable internet but I’m hoping I can get satellite internet. Several of my friends have begun saving lots of time, money and energy buy shopping online. I am skeptical but willing to give it a try. Even if I can’t save money it would be more convenient to be able to shop after the kids go to bed or while they are otherwise occupied and not have to drag them into the store with me. Have you ever tried to buy a week’s worth of food for 6 people with four kids in tow? Talk a bout a nightmare!

Paying Online Surveys - The Secrets To Finding The Best Paying Online Surveys

Paying Online Surveys - The Secrets To Finding The Best Paying Online Surveys
Photo Credit: Calistan / CC BY 2.0
Several days ago, I wrote an article about ways to avoid survey scams. Today's article will be an extension of that. Many survey sites in this industry don't pay members what they are worth, instead they are paid by gift vouchers or prize winnings. Not that this method of payment is wrong, but I feel that the most of us would prefer cash if we were given a choice. So how do we find the best paying online survey sites?

Here are 3 important steps and guidelines to follow in your quest.

First, when browsing for these sites, observe the web page. Does it look like a professionally designed website? Does it look new? Or does it look like crap. It will be obvious when you look and navigate through the web pages available. This may sound vain, but I must stress that this is the type of first impression that will tell you a lot about the company and how they treat thier business. It is not always accurate, but it does help filter out the scam sites.

Second, look for existing discussions or testimonials as part of your investigation. Look for reviews and opinions on the company you are eyeing on. Chances are, there are folks all around the world talking about it, reviewing it, criticizing it. This is usually the best way to find real paying online survey sites. If you find that most of the comments, reviews, testimonials and discussions are fairly positive, then it is worth giving them a try.

And third, check to see if the company has dealings with Fortune 500 companies. Fortune 500 companies? These are companies like Nike, Dell, Wallmart, Panasonic and Ebay... you know, the big shots! Sites that are affiliated with these big shots often pay well and are considered reputable.

Some sites to consider checking out can be found on this list of survey sites I joined a while back!

The key to getting ready quickly is an organized closet

Guest post written by Britney Scholl

One of the things that I really have to worry about in the mornings is what I'm going to wear. I've never had a really tough time getting up or making myself eat breakfast. I just have the toughest time figuring out what to put on before I go out the door. It's always been an issue for me. But I can never even pick out my outfits the night before. I'll pick out multiple ones and try them on over and over again in the morning to try and decide which one I'm going to wear.

So I knew that i had to do something a little differently because I can't be late for work. Not such a great thing to be known for around the office in an entry level position. I used my Daytona Beach Clear Internet to look online and find some tips for organizing my wardrobe.

I decided to not only organize it, but get rid of some pieces of clothing that I don't really wear. It was really tough, but they were just taking up extra space. It's a whole lot easier to see what you have when all of it is stuff that you love wearing.
