Happy 5th Birthday! 

Hey?  It’s been 5 years since I published my first post and delved into this world of food blogging. Wow! I have grown immensely since 2012, my photos are a testament of that 🙂 . I am yet to achieve the things I thought I would have by now, nonetheless […]

 

Orange Zest French Toast

French toast or toast mayai as we fondly call it here in Kenya is a quick breakfast fix that can be transformed very easily. This time round I added some orange zest and the results were amazing. Ideally a day or two old bread is great with french toast but […]

Raspberry Cinnamon Rolls

These buns will be the end of me, well the my waistline at least. I enjoy baking and cinnamon rolls are those indulgent things that I occasionally make and recently when I found some raspberries on sale I just had to buy them. I know some of us might find […]

Chicken Samosas

It’s ironic the first samosa recipe I share on here is chicken because I prefer vegetable samosas to any other kind. That said, samosas are great snacks or appetisers and are surprisingly easy to make once you have the samosa pockets. I prefer making my own samosa pockets and I […]

 

How to: Samosa Pockets

Ever heard of a person who failed at using pre made samosa sheets? Well I did! In my defense as soon as I had started to work with the sheets my other daughter (we were blessed with another girl back in November last year) woke up and I had to […]

Creamy Garlic and Mushroom Spaghetti

Are there some foods that you never ate growing up? For me, mushrooms are part of that list, I don’t remember when I first ate them but I think it must have been on a pizza then I graduated to mushroom soup and eventually sauteed mushrooms. I have come to […]
