    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 2 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Before I venture into today’s recipe, I would like to show off a bit of the azure blue skies and sea that lines the east coast of Africa. We in Mombasa are so lucky to have the beautiful Indian Ocean. Hubby and I spent the Easter holiday at the Bamburi Beach and every day it was a delight to walk on the beach. Though at time of the year the beach is strewn with seaweeds, believe me when I tell you that its a sign of a healthy sea eco system. When the tides…

    My favourite Country When Anshie, blogger at Spice Roots asked members of Bread Bakers  group to bake breads from Italy as the April theme, I was really excited. I love the country and Italian breads with all that olive oil, roasted tomatoes, cheese, bell peppers.

Full of fruit and wonderful aroma of orange, its suppose to like a cake but with yeast.

    J’adore ce pain The July challenge from the we knead to bake group  was Gibassier (pronounced as zee-bah-see-ay). This aromatic, delicious, rich, breakfast bread or pastry hails from the Lourmarin village in the Provence region of France.

  • Italian Easter Bread(eggless)

    Happy Easter everyone. Easter reminds me of so many things. I remember the time when we all would want to go for midnight Mass at the local church in Mt. Abu. It was not for any religious reason, but it gave us an opportunity to be out of our boarding school at midnight and that was a cool thing to do. Once our class was allowed to go to the church to attend the Mass. More than the Mass I remember our work from school to there, dark hills on all sides looming over us, older girls making us scared that tigers were ready to pounce on us, and the constant reminder by the nuns to walk silently. The whole experience of attending the actual…
