Leer en españolChamomile is one of the most popular herbs to relieve common ailments. That is why chamomile tea is a favorite among grannies, who will always advise you to drink some té de manzanilla, as it is called in Spanish, for stomach aches or when you cannot sleep. Beyond beliefs and traditions, chamomile tea is, indeed, full of amazing health benefits. Chamomile has multiple health benefits because it contains terpenoids, flavonoids, and other volatile oils that, according to a study published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and relaxing properties. The Health Benefits of Chamomile TeaChamomile tea is good for controlling anxiety. If you drink it at night, it will help you get relaxed and sleep more easily, according to studies by the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC).Chamomile tea with anise is very effective to reduce menstrual cramping and stomach aches, due to its antispasmodic properties.Recently, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved the medicinal use of chamomile and it is used as a complementary treatment for wound healing.Chamomile tea has anti-inflammatory properties as well since it contains apigenin, luteolin, and bisabolol, which relax the blood vessels and the smooth muscle fibers, reducing joint pain, as explained by the University of Nottingham Medical School.Chamomile tea also alleviates cold symptoms. Some people inhale chamomile tea spray to treat respiratory conditions like asthma and bronchitis. You can drink chamomile tea with lime juice to add a bit of vitamin C.Another study by the American Chemical Society showed that chamomile tea helps prevent health complications linked to diabetes, including vision loss, and damage to the nerves and kidneys.Thanks to its antibacterial properties, chamomile tea protects the teeth and gums from mouth diseases, improving the oral health of those who drink it.How to prepare chamomile tea?Prepare chamomile tea by bringing water and a bundle of fresh chamomile to a boil and letting it cook for 10 to 15 minutes or by simply buying tea bags and pouring hot water into your favorite mug. It is best to drink unsweetened chamomile tea, but you can drink it with sugar to sweeten it a bit. Make sure you are not allergic to chamomile tea and seek medical care to properly treat any health condition for, even though it is a great home remedy, chamomile tea is not a medicine.Translated by Miranda Perea
Leer en españolYou may not be an experienced baker, and even if you have baked before, sometimes the outcome makes you wonder, “What the hell am I doing wrong and why are my cookies hard?!” Despite being an easy recipe, cookies often turn out to be one of the most difficult foods to prepare as you need to find the perfect balance in each step so that they don’t end up being too thick, too cakey, or too hard. Whether they are chocolate chips cookies or banana cookies, there are several things you must watch out for to understand what went wrong with your cookies, for example, the consistency of the cookie dough before baking. Some of the most common mistakes made when making cookies include not adding enough flour or adding too much, using more eggs than needed, or even more sugar, and many more that you can read next: Using baking powder instead of baking soda. Mixing all the ingredients at once instead of following the recipe step by step. Adding extra eggs. Completely forgetting about the eggs. Not sifting the flour or adding too much of it. Not using enough flour. Overmixing the dough. Using too much butter. Not using enough butter. Not using enough sugar.Why do my cookies turn out hard?If your cookies turn out rock-hard, you must have made one of the two most common mistakes: not adding enough butter or not using enough flour. Some cookies are crispy and have a firmer consistency, while others, like chocolate chips or oatmeal cookies, can be either soft or crunchy. The secret to a fluffy texture instead of a thin and crispy texture lies in moisture. For example, forming cookies in high mounds, instead of flattening them with your hands, and cooking them for a minute or two will help them retain more density and will make them softer. To make the cookie dough moister, you can add extra butter, egg yolks, or brown sugar, which will make them even softer. To make softer cookies, add 2 to 4 tablespoons of softened butter or ¼ cup of sugar to the dough.Using less flour will make cookies flat, brown, crispy, fragile, and greasy. Moreover, they will be done much faster. The outcome will be hard and fragile cookies, just as when you use butter that is too soft or slightly melted to the dough, which can also result in flat cookies. The easy solution is to add more flour to the dough, little by little, until the dough sticks to the mixer.Try these small changes with your next cookies. Finding the perfect way to make cookies that don’t turn out rock-hard is a matter of trial and error.                                                                                                                                                           Translated by Miranda Perea
