Some time back, like a year ago, a friend of ours shared a link to a website that sold sea fish and I didn’t give much thought to it. He does love his salmon and for him, the website was such a breath of fresh air... being empowered to buy fresh salmon at the click of a button! 

Then I started craving sea fish... you know, the kind that’s only sold at a ...

This month marks 1 year since I started doing business and it’s been one interesting rollercoaster ride!

I thought that when I started out doing business i’d get young entrepreneurs sharing their business journeys... you know, those stories from people who’re still making it and not from those who seem to have already made it! I remember having this conversation with Koki Oyuke, a fellow entrepreneur, and to be honest, we couldn ...

A while back, I shared a picture on my Instagram page of our dinner, which happened to have been a nice vegetable stir-fry, featuring bok choy and tofu and I got a lot of people asking about it. If you'd like to know more about tofu with regards to where to buy it and how to prepare it, I'd recommend you read my previous posts on tofu here and here.

If there's one food that I can eat all day every day, it is the potato. Whether mashed, boiled, roasted or fried, I just love potatoes and we look for every opportunity to have them, especially for breakfast. 

It's a bit sad that the prices of potatoes have increased over the past couple of days, I heard it was as a result of floods that swept away a large portion of the crop ...

I've been munching on these cookies for the past couple of days and I just can't get enough of them! I think they are among the best cookies I've ever baked! They are so smooth and I like the sweet surprise with each bite as a result of the raisins in them! What better way to combine oatmeal than with coconut and raisins!

It was initially a gluten-free recipe but I only ...

You can never go wrong with bananas in your pastries or energy drinks and one of the most amazing things I enjoy making with bananas other than the Healthy Banana and Oat pancake is making a banana bread.

I found a recipe online and adjusted it to make it more flavourful and healthy. 

For starters, I added cinnamon and nutmeg which gives the bread such a rich flavour.

Ripe bananas are generally sweet and I ...

Making broth for the purposes of cooking was quite a foreign concept in the house I grew up in. We called it 'soup' and it was made by either boiling Kienyeji (Free-range) chicken to tenderise it; or boiling large chunks of meat on-bone during events that called for nyama choma (barbecue)... which mostly took place during family parties, holidays and traditional weddings. Everyone looked forward to having their bodies warmed up in the evening with ...

Living in a tropical country means that we get to enjoy sunshine all year round! Or so do most people who don't live in the tropicals think. We do have winters, but ours aren't marked with snowstorms and blizzards but rather very cold humid weather that can go to as low as 8 degrees. For people who constantly enjoy warm weather (25-30 degrees Celcius) all year round, anything below 18 degrees is freezing ...

I have found that the best way to enjoy vegetables in most meals is after I've stir-fried them. I've developed a love for Asian cuisine and one of the things I enjoy making and eating is stir-fried vegetables with Soy Sauce.

You can have them with absolutely anything and a choice of bright coloured vegetables can turn a dull meal into a 'Ulala' experience. Coloured peppers and carrots bring a brightness to any ...

One of the things that I'd prayed about concerning my future partner was that he would naturally have a love for fish! Yes, fish :-D! For the longest time, I thought that I would eventually end up with someone from the Lake Side. I had planned on how I'd eat fish all day every day and eventually pass the genius gene from Omega 3 to my children! 

At some point, I thought I ...
