Mushroom, basil and mozzarella

Mushroom, Basil and Mozzarella Pizza

I enjoy making pizza. From the kneading of the dough, to the making of the sauce and of course the toppings. However, I have never made one that was vegetarian. This past weekend after attending a bloggers event, fellow food blogger, Wangeci and I passed by Ngara market. What started out […]

Veggie Burgers

I open my freezer to see what I can prepare for dinner and I find the last pack of butter beans, I am dismayed since I don’t want to prepare them as I usually do. Normally I’d make a curry with coconut milk and serve with chapatis but this time […]

Vegetable Pilau

Since my successful try at making pilau I have been more confident thus made different variations of it. I’ve tried with chicken and toady I share my vegetable pilau recipe. The recipe is more or less the same as the one I had posted earlier, the only major variation being […]

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 […]

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 […]

Easy as …

Since I’m a working wife, at times I wake up pretty late and in a hurry so I never get time to prepare elaborate breakfasts. On such occasions the sandwich maker is my best friend. It was no different on Tuesday morning, getting out of bed was a struggle plus […]

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 […]

Some Saturdays ago we had dinner over at my other family. We usually have a great time and never leave till it’s like pretty late. As is my mother in law’s tradition, she gave us some goodies to carry with us once we were about to head for home. This […]
