Show me a bigger salad lover than I? I’m waiting. I absolutely love salads. The different textures and flavours at play just make me so happy. I learnt of an online business that sells organically grown vegetables and I bought some supplies from them. I got the curly kale and beets from them. As soon […]
Sauces, Salads and Dips
It’s mango season and how about a refreshing salad. I got the inspiration for this salad after I attended a wedding back in December. The salad is very easy to prepare and the dressing just brings it home.
Pesto is one of the easiest things to make, especially if you have a food processor. I love how it comes together so quickly and it’s perfect for quick meals. Pesto is an Italian word meaning to grind which explains the origin of the pestle for mortar and pestle. Traditionally pesto is made in one. […]
I enjoy making sauces at home and most often than not I use the sauces in chicken wing recipes. I love the sweet and sourness of teriyaki sauce and depending on how long you cook it, it can turn sticky which is good. Just like my barbecue sauce, you dump all the ingredients in a […]
Mango season calls for a bomb salad and this is it. I don’t think I’ve made the most of this mango season as I would love to but I still have time, I guess. For this salad, you need just two ingredients, yes just two well not taking into account the dressing. I used tommy […]
If you know me personally then you know I absolutely love watermelon. At times at parties my friends even try to get me to steer clear of the watermelon tray since I tend to just chow them down. What’s not to love about these sweet (if you get a great one) and hydrating fruits?
Salads! Refreshing! I enjoy salads not only because they are made with flavourful ingredients but because they can be pretty healthy when not doused with ‘unhealthy’ dressings. This red cabbage and pepper slaw is just right.
Happy New Month. It’s unbelievable how fast this year has gone by. I had several plans for the blog which I’m yet to implement, however I am geared up to pick up where I left off. For the longest time I have wanted to share my simple homemade barbecue sauce recipe but whenever I took […]
Zucchinis or courgettes whichever name you choose to use are a type of squash which are quite versatile. You can use in your stews and curries, as a snack in form of fritters or even baked/fried zucchini sticks, in frittatas or quiches or better yet make a loaf of zucchini bread. I have been making […]
I enjoy a refreshing salsa just like any other person and what’s more refreshing than adding watermelon to one? Not only is this salsa full of colour it is packed with flavour. From the sweetness of the watermelon to the herb flavour of the dhania to the coolness of the cucumber. Not much is needed […]
