Grandma’s Onion Fried Kienyeji Chicken

I’m always in search of the perfect kienyeji chicken recipe, so Tuesday this week was one of those days. I had a whole chicken in the fridge and I wasn’t quite sure of how to prepare it. After shooting down several ideas I finally had an epiphany so I phoned […]

Fried Bananas

Sometime back hubby and I had gone for dinner at my parents home and mum had prepared some boiled bananas that complemented the beef and veggies very well. I had never thought of preparing them like that, with new ideas in mind I purposed to try it out. Fast forward […]

Butterless Butter Chicken

Last year during hubby’s birthday, we went out for lunch at an Indian restaurant, Mughals, at Adams Arcade. I had some butter chicken, which in my opinion is by far the best boneless chicken curry I’ve ever eaten. After that I embarked on looking for the recipe but most of what […]

Kienyeji Pot Roast

I normally avoid cooking kienyeji (road runner) chicken for fear of under cooking it and of course the fact that it can be a bit tough. On one of my visits at my neighbours place (read the Murigis), I found some Tupike magazines which I gladly skimmed through and voila […]

Chicken in Mango Sauce

Over the holidays, I had purposed to roast a whole chicken and I finally got around to doing that on Christmas day. I have to say, I was impressed, the chicken was not only delicious, crispy but also juicy. Anyway that’s a recipe for another day but lemme leave you […]

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 […]

Egg Curry

Sorry Dee yet again I put up a recipe with eggs. Forgive me . This is a recipe I learnt from my mother, we used to prepare this mostly to serve as an accompaniment for rice though one can also serve it with ugali or pasta. I prepared this dish […]

Vegetable Stir Fry

When you are a working wife, you really need to come up with recipes that can be whipped up in under 30 minutes :-). So I normally stock my fridge with veggies that can be cooked really fast and don’t need a lot of preparation. So what I usually do […]

Mint and Rosemary Chicken

I love herbs and I normally buy almost all the types that I can find in the supermarket. Some of the herbs that I use on almost a daily basis are sage, parsley, thyme and rosemary. For the longest time, ( well 3 months) I have had mint on my […]

Herbalicious Potatoes

Potatoes, roasted, fried or baked , who doesn’t love them? This past weekend I debated whether to prepare chapatis or potatoes. Well potatoes won, and that is because hubby wasn’t around to influence the voting otherwise chapatis would have won pants down hi hi hi. Since, we love potatoes that much, I […]
