Yoghurt Pancakes

Yep!!! One can apparently put yoghurt in pancakes or so I ‘invented’. I had some leftover plain yoghurt from a previous recipe so I decided to add it into the pancake batter. Have I mentioned that it was to expire in 2 days, yeah, hence the reason I had to […]

 

Fish Curry

Since I discovered, the chicken curry recipe, I have modified it to suit different meats. I had some filleted tilapia and I decided to try it out. Ingredients: 1 1/2 fillets of fish – I used tilapia (cut into chunks) 1 cup plain yoghurt 3/4 cup coconut milk 1 onion […]

 

Pineapple and Peppers Stir Fry

Sounds odd but it was tasty. It was one of those days I was clueless on what to cook. I had some beef strips in the freezer and we had this ripe pineapple in the fridge. I decided to make a simple stir fry to go with some leftover rice. […]

Mango and Tree Tomato Smoothie

A while back my loving mother in law sent my husband with some tree tomatoes/ tamarillos (matunda ya damu) . I had a mango that didn’t seem sweet and since I had some vanilla yoghurt in the fridge I decided to make a smoothie. Well with my excitement of inventing a […]

 

Broccoli

Powerpuff girls are responsible for making us hate broccoli even without having tasted it. Well fortunately, I decided to give it a try and I loved it. I made some to accompany the pasta alla marinara. Normally I stir fry broccoli with carrots but sadly I didn’t have any in […]

 

Marinara Sauce

Marinara (mariner’s) sauce is a South Italian tomato sauce. The most of basic recipes has tomatoes, garlic, herbs and onions. It’s pretty good to serve with pasta, rice or even seafood. I prepared this sometime this week to serve with pasta (pasta alla marinara as Italians would call it) and some broccoli […]
