The Origin

Leo tunapika? (What are we cooking?)

My love for cooking has drove me to reading various food blogs and viewing various you tube cooking channels. On a random day I happened to stumble upon pendo la mama a cooking journal that has pretty easy recipes and best part of it is that it is Kenyan (easily available ingredients).

After several months of following this blog, I also felt inspired to start my very own blog. After exchanging long emails with Grace , I felt confident to start.

The name search was pretty nerve wrecking but hubby was quick enough to suggest ‘Leo tunapika?’ a question he asks almost daily and voila we had a name.

I hope you will enjoy our cooking escapes.
