  • Pan de Yuca/ Yuca Bread#BreadBakers

    July 10, 2018mayurisjikoni

    EVENT: BREAD BAKERS THEME: GLUTEN FREE BREAD This pan de yuca or yuca bread or cassava bread recipe has been in my recipe book for over a year. I had once bought some cassava flour to try out some traditional African recipe. Lost the recipe, couldn’t remember the name, left with a bag of flour. When I cleaning out the fridge, the flour came out from some hidden corner. Googled for recipes to use up the flour and came across the recipe for pan de yuca. I jotted it down and decided to check out other similar recipes. What got me so confused was the different oven temperatures used, the amount of cheese used. I got confused and thought I’ll get back to the recipe…

      MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 23 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like Prince and Dine like a Pauper” When I was doing my research for W, waffles kept on popping in my head. I love waffles but surprisingly I still don’t own a waffle machine. A note to self “next buy a waffle machine”. I do come across various gadgets being sold on the local online sites but have been a bit skeptical to purchase anything online in Kenya. Whenever I’m in India I just love shopping online, Amazon and Big Basket mainly. When we were setting up our Bangalore home, most of the light fittings and furniture was bought online by my…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON  THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 18 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Meeting old classmates after many many years can be either exciting and you just pick up where you left or it can be a disheartening experience. I’ve met a few of my classmates after a long time. With a couple after catching up with what’s transpired from the time we left school to the present, we remain friends but not best friends. With a few I’ve just chosen to not keep in touch as our opinions and lives are so different.  Today hubby met up with an old class mate of his after a…

  • 726. Cheese Stuffed Garlic Pull Apart Bread#BreadBakers

    November 14, 2017mayurisjikoni

    Cheese Stuffed Garlic Pull Apart Bread#BreadBakers Theme: Pull Apart Breads Pull Apart Bread has been on my ‘to do’ list for a long time. I’ve done mini ones in a muffin pan, but wanted to bake one in a bundt pan. However, the bundt pan part didn’t really work out but the pull apart bread got baked. My daughter keeps on insisting that she’s not going to eat much carbs, so initially I tried baking half the recipe to give a small loaf. First all, its the first time I’m halving a basic bread recipe so forgot that I should add less salt. The small miserable looking loaf didn’t come out too well and it was salty. However, my daughter liked the idea of tiny…

    Different kinda pancakes I love making pancakes. They can be healthy, sinful, comfort food, easy to make and most of all truly delicious. What are pancakes?

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017   #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON   THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES/LENTILS DAY:16 Last Sunday I met up with my best friend to catch up on events, thoughts, basically everything. She had gone on a cruise to Norway and I had loads to tell her about my dad’s stay in Montreal and our visit to Niagara Falls. She runs a kindergarten and though I retired from teaching nearly 10 years ago, we still have a passionate common topic and that it young kids. New academic year so there are bound to be kids who will cry their lungs out before they settle in. Usually every new term with new kids and she says that it doesn’t take a toll on her when kids cry…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:14    Bangalore, Montreal, London, Nairobi are some of the places where I can access a kitchen to try out ingredients that I don’t readily get in Mombasa. Portobello mushroom is one of them. The first time I ever had a portobello mushroom was some years back when I went to Nando’s in Leicester with my sister and her family. Knowing my love for mushrooms she suggested that I should try the portobello mushroom and halloumi burger. I loved the burger and taste of the portobello mushroom. After that I’ve had portobello mushrooms either grilled or as a filling for burgers. However, I’d not made anything with the mushrooms at home. So during…

    Amazing Gadgets     Whenever I’m at my son’s place in Montreal, the first few days go into cleaning his place. Out of all my three kids he’s probably the one with the most gadgets. Home cleaning becomes an easier task and love that our clothes do not have that awful damp smell. The wonders of a clothes dryer. His kitchen too is equipped with some of the best and powerful appliances. Every visit and we add a new gadget.      This time round I was appalled at the state of our very useful pressure cooker. The bottom no longer sits well on the hob and I just don’t want to get you into the colour of the poor pressure cooker. So I insisted that…
