    The Mega Blogging Marathon theme for April 2018 was Explore the Flavors. This time we could choose from a number of given themes. Follow one theme for all 26 days or choose a weekly theme. The themes were as follows: Kids Lunchbox Street Food Indian Sweets Lunch Box Dishes (Elders) Breakfasts (International or Indian) No Refined Sugar or Refined Flour (only baked or typical dishes that are made with alternatives) No Onion No Garlic Whole Grain I chose to do the International Breakfast theme and this time I didn’t post the dishes randomly but followed the alphabet and also tried not to repeat the country. Overall a challenging task but feel really great as I got to discover so many different breakfast dishes from world…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 20 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper”    Do any of you have days when you just can’t get any good ideas for food styling? Do you look at the photos after a few days and think ‘what sort of picture have I taken?’ Or sometimes are you so pressed for time that you take pictures in a hurry and then later on realize they are so bad but now the food has gone down everyones tummy? That recently happened to me and now when I look at the picture, its so so bad. I have two options, either just use that…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017   #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON   THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:22 As I was going through my files, I came across this recipe in the draft. I had completely forgotten about it. I had prepared this delicious and filling breakfast dish for the Blogging Marathon theme Breakfast for the month of August which I had to back out of as I got too busy with guests. It was during one of my visits to Jean Talon market in Montreal that I came across a stall that had made fresh corn tortillas. These were made with white corn and not the usual yellow corn. I bought a packet as I had planned to make Huevos Rancheros. Oh well, perhaps this recipe was…

    Rice for Breakfast! Theme: Explore Latin American Cuisine BM #77 Week 2 Day 2 My exploration on the internet (what would we do with google?) took me to Costa Rica. As I mentioned in my previous post I had to restrict myself to ingredients that are available in Mombasa. What caught my eyes was an interesting breakfast dish that most Costa Ricans have and that is Gallo Pinto. It translates as ‘spotted rooster’. The mixture of cooked rice and cooked beans together gives the impression of a spotted rooster. It is believed that there is no one version that all the Costa Ricans enjoy. They all have their versions of the breakfast dish. all you need for this dish as the core ingredients are old…

    Date and Chai Muffins#BreadBakers Natural Sweeteners While browsing on Facebook one night, I saw a message from Stacy the initiator of Bread Bakers group, requesting members to host the coming months. Quickly, she found hosts for August to December 2016.The only month left was July! For a long time I wanted to host but what put me off was the too technical sounding google documents and htmls and all those alien technological terms. There are files explaining how to go about it, but a mental block was making the whole task sound just too difficult. Knowing that in July I would be spending time with my son in Montreal, I quickly “whatsapped” him asking if he will help to create the document. “Of course mum,”…

    Leave the innocent children alone Time and again we are facing with news and reports of cruelty towards innocent children. Forced labour, ill treatment, child trafficking, children soldiers and now the shootout at Peshawar. A few days ago a video went viral online showing a Ugandan maid force feeding a toddler, and when the poor child vomited, the maid kicked the child like a football, stepped on the fragile being and basically just went mad. The child is fine and the maid has got a jail sentence. All this was caught on camera which the maid probably had no idea that the parents had installed in their house. Today the world faces the news of innocent children shot at an army run school in Peshawar.…
