No Dry Turkey For Me!!!! :)

  Author/Blogger/Victoria Sheffield

Now I know most of you are wondering why I have prepared this turkey and it's not even Thanksgiving. Well if you live in my home and have not four, not five, but six children, a husband, and some animals then must I say more! In all honesty, I cook like this everyday. Today I want to share with my readers, how I cook a Turkey that is so moist, it will make you want to slap you grandma! (actually I hope not! :)) I am sorry, but I just can not eat a dry turkey. For many years, I would go over to family members houses for the holidays and just sort of skip the turkey because I just can't get with that. 

Without further due here is my easy recipe for a turkey that is not only seasoned well but will melt in your mouth. A lot of people seem to feel that there is some sort of special sauce, that the turkey has to be seasoned overnight, or injected but that is not necessarily true. Now if a person wants to do these things, that would be perfectly fine. My simple way: I seasoned this turkey with salt, pepper, and parsley flakes. Forgot to mention that I cut a large onion in half and stuffed it inside the turkey. Now here is the simple TRICK. 

Get a large can of chicken stock and pour it into the bottom of your roasting pan. Cook the turkey according to the size of it. Make sure you do not overcook it because it will dry. Make sure the turkey stays covered with foil or a lid. When I finished cooking the turkey, the pan still had some of the stock left at the bottom of the pan. This can be saved for rewarming the turkey or can also be used to make dressing. Maybe I will share my famous dressing with you.  

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you do try this at home!

Robin Williams Wife Reveals That he Was in Early Stages of Parkinsons Disease

    Victoria Sheffield/Author/Journalist

I first knew him from Mork from Ork. He made me laugh and I was drawn to this show as a child. His warm spirit and since of humor simply took most of us away. Tragically, on Monday the 11th the comedian and actor took his life by way of strangulation. He first attempted to cut his wrist but when this did not work, he used a belt to hand himself.

He was know for struggling with addiction, anxiety, and depression. His wife gave a statement revealing that he was dealing with early stages of Parkinson's disease. Williams was secretly dealing with the disease and the wife speaks for the family stating that “It is our hope in the wake of Robin's tragic passing, that others will find the strength to seek the care and support they need to treat whatever battles they are facing so they may feel less afraid."

His passing has saddened me and I often find myself thinking about him and the level of pain that he must have been going through. Prayers are going up here and at this point I hope and pray that instead of judging him that people will pray for his family.

Police Brutality or Not??


  author/journalist Victoria Sheffield

Huuuuum! This makes me feel very sad and ill. Earlier this month, a Staten Island man by the name of Eric Garner went into cardiac arrest after being put into a choke hold. Allegedly Garner was accused for selling cigarettes. No one saw the cigarettes or Garner doing anything wrong. He did not resist arrest and clearly stated in the video that was taken by a woman that he could not breathe. In my opinion the emergency response was too slow. The only thing eye witness stated was that Garner actually broke up a fight. The people fighting left the scene but Garner stayed only to be treated this way.

I will be honest, I strongly feel that in cold blood the police strangled this man for no reason other than racial profiling. My hard question for some is if he were white would this have been done? So what if he was selling cigarettes why take a mans life??  I am outraged! Why did he need that type of force? Why did he need that many people on top of him?? Some state that the video is not clear enough. Yes if a person is blind! Sorry but I can not sugar coat this one. We have a real problem!!

Thanks for visiting! Check out the video!

A Warning About Lace Front Wigs From the Actress Countess Vaughn

author/journalist/Victoria Sheffield

I must admit that when I think about wigs that were worn years ago, we have really evolved. In my opinion, wigs that were worn years ago did not look so natural. I am not much of a wig person but I do enjoy wearing hair weave. There are many different types of wigs to wear. Today I want to touch on lace front wigs. Many celebrities including the famous Tyra Banks wears them but they must be worn with caution.

I've been a licensed cosmetologist for the last 25 years but I must say that I absolutely do not like any type of glue at all. I highly recommend that if people will use glue on lace front wigs or hair weave to do it with extreme caution and ONLY in the case of a hair emergency. It's just not worth the risk.

So let's get back to the warning by Countess Vaughn. Again many celebs with having to change their look often wear lace fronts but the question is are they abusing the use of these wigs and wearing them too much. I say of course they are. Whether a person is a celeb or not I strongly recommend people giving their hair a break from weaves and wigs. Countess in my opinion should have terminated the use of the glue worn with lace fronts at the first sign of anything being wrong. Everything is not for everybody. I strongly encourage viewers to watch the video in it's entirety. The maker of this video uses profanity but there is a lot of truth in what she is saying.

It is not meant for every woman to go natural or always wear her own hair but I must be honest, the chemicals that we are using on our hair are not safe. I have to be honest about it. I encourage people to also read this article I wrote some time ago.

Jahi McMath is Showing Signs of Improvement

photo credits given to:

Author Victoria Sheffield

The families Lawyer says that Jahi McMath is showing significant signs of improvement. After more than six months the thirteen year old is responding to her mother and is able to move her body parts. She is reported able to move in the direction of her mother's voice. On December the 9th after a tonsillectomy surgery young Jahi bled profusely and suffered from a heart attack. The Children's Hospital of Oakland declared her brain dead and had it court ordered that the child be taken off of life support.

Against doctors order's, the family fought in court to keep her on a ventilator and had her moved to a non disclosed location. Since then no one has heard a thing about her condition.  Jahi receives 24 hour care and because she shows signs of improvement may soon be removed out of ICU. The lawyer does not have much more to say but he mentions that she is doing much better than experts expected. Because she was medically declared brain dead, Dolan the families lawyer says that the family would love a retest. It just goes to show that Doctors don't have the final say. :)

A Thirty One Year Old Poses as a Fifteen Year Old & Enrolls in School

(photo credits) here
Author Victoria Sheffield
Now this is one of the most amazing things I have heard anyone try to pull off in a long time. How could she do this and why? Right now no one is really sure what the answer to those questions are but it sure is mind boggling. Charity Ann Johnson was enrolled in a Christian school in East Texas and is now being held on a $500 dollar bond. She managed to convince Tamika Lincoln that she was homeless and had been abused by her father. She told Lincoln that both her parents had passed away. Tamika Lincoln took her into her home and acted as her guardian. School officials found out that the ID she used was indeed not real. They were even able to find clues she left behind on facebook to prove that she is not who she said she was. When her teachers and class found out this news they were in tears. I can't judge her but I sure wonder what were her motives. When people take strangers into their home they should be very mindful.

When a Facebook Argument Turns Deadly!

        Author Victoria Sheffield

This is a story that is really mind boggling to me. Apparently there are two young ladies that had a disagreement on facebook. One of the girls was pregnant. Because of this dispute, on April 23, in Jacksonville Florida, Virginia Wyche shot her pregnant friend in the stomach killing the unborn child and wounding the friend. This happened after the friend went to confront Virginia Wyche about the dispute. There was an eyewitness there named Christopher Cash that stated that the girls were fighting over something that was said on facebook. This just shows how people should not use social media sights to air out their personal laundry.

The shooting is still under investigation. Authorities are trying to determine if the shooting was self defense or not. If the shooting was not self defense Wyche could face up to 16 years for second degree murder and 5 to 15 years for attempted murder. The shooters mother states that this is not like her daughter. When she learned about the shooting she was just as surprised as anybody else.

Parasitic Twins - This is something you don't want to miss! They are similar to conjoined twins

       Author Victoria Sheffield

I have to be honest when I first saw this I thought that this was a hoax. Then I did a little research. I've seen conjoined twins with two heads but this is something totally new to me. Parasitic twins are formed when a twin's embryo forms in the uterus but does not fully develop. A parasitic twin is also known as asymmetrical. So one twin is fully developed but the other is only partially developed.

Many of these twins have been seen at carnivals as freak shows and are very rare. In fact only one child in a million is born this way. Surgery done to have the twins separated can be very dangerous even causing death. The little boy in the video below was able to successfully have his twin removed. As he grew older the twins limbs grew larger being very uncomfortable for the him.

Living like this can be very difficult. Often these people are stared at, called names, and there are some that are even scared  of people with a parasitic twin. As pictured below, these twins can be attached to the fully developed twin in different areas of the body. They can even be on the inside of a person.

One thing I learned from writing this article is that we that are born in what appears normal have every right to be thankful. If we have children that are born with five fingers and toes we should continue to be thankful.

Fathers Have Got to Step up to the Plate!

Author Victoria Sheffield

First of all I must say that I absolutely love the work that Iyanla does. As seen in the video below she uses creative ways to help people heal. This video not only touched my heart but made me cry. This article is not to bash fathers because I realize that there are dead beat mothers out there also. Dads your children need you. You are important to your daughters and your sons. There may be several reasons why a father is absent in the life of a child. If the reasons are just because the children were conceived and unwanted, this is not an excuse to bail out. These children miss out on a lot. Imagine never having a father to watch a child play at their sporting events or just to simply instill values in them. How does a child feel when other children's fathers are there but theirs never seems to show up? This is heart breaking!!! There is no real excuse for it either. Children need love and guidance in every way. They should never feel as if they are raising themselves. These children often lack self esteem and are forced to grow up early. Sometimes the decisions that they make are the wrong  ones simply because at such a young age there is no guidance there.

Mothers can not be fathers. It is our job as parents to be the best examples that we can for our children. If we skip out on this responsibility then there is a chance that the same thing will happen to our grandchildren. It is horrible that children often are put into mentoring programs simply because the fathers are not there. It is even worse when they end up in the prison systems because they are children hurting looking in the wrong direction. Years gone by can not be replaced. If you are a father that has skipped out on your responsibility, please find your children and ask for forgiveness. Let your children know why you have not been there and begin to establish a real relationship with them. If you do not know how, God will guide you. This does not mean unfulfilled promises either. We are living in a world where unfortunately women are in situations where they enter into another relationship with children already from a previous relationship. Do you want the possibility of your child raped or molested my her new significant lover? The truth is that this happens all the time.

Now if you are not a person that will love, cherish, and protect your children then stay where you are! Let me make myself clear. If you are the type that will possibly abuse or molest your own children then you are still no good to the child. Protect your children by staying away and get some real help for yourself. Only until you are free of these demons should you establish a relationship with any child. Please take at this video. Fathers have got to step up to the plate.

Remains of seven infants were found by her estranged husband wrapped in plastic bags in the garage. Apparently from the period of 1996 to 2006, Meagan birthed the babies and after interviewed by authorities admitted to either stangling or suffocating the infants as soon as they were born. She reveals to authorities that one of the babies was still born. The husband notified authorities after finding a baby wrapped in plastic in a box. After a search warrant was issued, authorities found six more babies either wrapped in a towel or shirt, then placed in plastic and a box. The husband is not currently being charged but a full investigation in underway.

The King Siblings in Litigation Again!

photo credits given to:
Author Victoria Sheffield

I really hate to see this but I guess some things just have to be settled in court. This seems like such a dishonor to such a great peaceful man. Bernice Kings speaks out about her two brothers Dexter and Martin the third attempting to sell their fathers traveling bible and his Nobel Peace Prize.  She is very disappointed with her brothers and states that her parents would be turning over in their grave if they knew this. She feels that they agreed to turn over their fathers possessions to the estate but not to sell them.

The brothers are the ones that have actually filed the suit. She says that "this won't happen on her watch" She says that they want to sell the items to a private owner. It appears that this is not the first time that they have actually been in litigation. The first time they had this type of problem, Bernice and her brother Martin sued Dexter in 2008 because they accused him of taking money from the estates account. The matter settled out of court. In 1995, the king siblings agreed to release all of King's possessions to the estate. Bernice has been accused of holding on to her fathers bible and Nobel Peace Prize. She says that those two items are in a place for safe keeping.

My views are that money is not everything. The children have the right to sell his possessions if they all agree but morally and ethically, some things just don't seem right. I am with Bernice and I am sure some will disagree. She must fight for what she feels is right even though she still loves her brothers.

I would love to see the day when they can settle their matters out of the courtroom and press. I am sure Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would love this also.

So George Zimmerman Says He's Having a Hard Time Since He Killed Travon Martin!!!

Who Cares!!!!!!!!!
   Author Victoria Sheffield
(photo credits given to:

So George Zimmerman the 30 year old former watchman says he's having a hard time since he shot and killed Travon Marton. God forgive me but in life we reap what we sow. He actually seems to feel that he did the right thing. My question to him is if you did the right thing, then why are you suffering so much? This was clearly not a case of self defense.

He claims that he is now homeless and fears for his life. He took a life and now fears for his. I would not kill him, I would let him live so that he can continue to be reminded that he took a families child away from them for no reason. He states that he has post traumatic stress. I wonder what he feels that this child's family is suffering with - disappointment, pain, heartache, trauma, sadness, anger, etc...but you did the right thing.

He owes millions in law fees and who will want to live with him knowing that his life is in danger. Certainly not me!! I can not even see family wanting to live with him. He says that he struggles everyday to live a normal life. I wonder if Travon Martins family has a normal life living in such injustice?? I find it totally amazing that he says he wants to go back to school and become a lawyer to help combat injustice. WTF= WHAT THE FREAK!!!!

Some say he got away with cold hearted murder. He may not be living behind bars but he is living in hell!! He still today claims that this was an act of self defense!
