    EVENT: BLOGGING MARATHON #88 THEME: KID’S DELIGHT – HEALTHY DRINKS – WEEK 3 DAY 2 As I mentioned in the Day 1 post for healthy drinks for kids, I want to refrain from using artificial flavors, additives, colors and today to the list I add harmful fats like hydrogenated vegetable fats. These are found in baked goods, restaurant foods, sold as margarine, finds its way into products like peanut butter, other nut spreads etc. Peanut butter in moderation is good for health. Making peanut butter at home is so easy. Roasted peanuts are processed in a food processor till it becomes a smooth paste. Its that simple. Why should kids have peanut butter included in their diet: Its rich in protein. Has good fat. Keeps…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87 BLOGGING MARATHON THEME:EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 19 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” When Srivalli first suggested the themes for this Mega Blogging Marathon my mind was set on the breakfast theme. Little did I know that I would truly be exploring flavors from other countries and some from countries I’d not heard of like Tatarstan. At that time the only breakfast dishes that I could see were French Toast, different bakes, oatmeals, you know the usual Sunday brunch items.  When I decided to take on the challenge of making breakfast dishes from A-Z, that’s when a whole world of different breakfast dishes opened up. Today’s breakfast is…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON – APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 13 “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a Pauper” Wow, we’ve reached half way, another half to go. As the letters are passing by so quickly so are the days.  I had the real Monday Blues today. Got up early, beat the clock and finished all my kitchen work before the water went away and was all ready to tackle a few hours on the computer. However, suddenly I felt a little dizzy and couldn’t concentrate on what I was supposed to write. Decided to rest a bit till hubby comes home for lunch. Served lunch, didn’t feel like eating much but he…

    Healthy Dessert For Kids Theme: Kid’s DelightBM#85 Week 3 Day 3    During my last trip to Montreal, during the weekend we decided to go to the Old Port area. It was bustling with people, it was a very hot sunny day, many food trucks were around selling food, desserts etc, stalls selling hats, sunglasses, souvenirs, and so many things. While most of the Canadians and tourists were enjoying the sweltering sun, I was looking for some place to sit under the shade. I  cannot bear really hot weather. It just zaps all my energy and I feel so sluggish. I finally found some place on the bench under a tree and right in front of the truck selling chocolate dipped frozen bananas. The choice…

    Recipe Swap 2       After Dawn paired us up for the January Food Bloggers Recipe Swap, I had every intention of immediately checking out my partner Sarah Schwarz’s blog Cook At Home. However, that did not happen as I was in a holiday mood. When Sarah sent me an email asking me questions to know a bit more about me, I thought I too better get cracking. However, on holiday and no access to a kitchen  I thought I’d go through her blog and decide on what I’d like to make. As I cruise through her blog I see the phrases like Whole 30 and Paleo. Frankly I didn’t know what Whole 30 meant till I googled the phrase. So I knew I would…

    Food Blogger Recipe Swap -November Partner :Luca – Simply Delish Eats    Its my first time to post a recipe for the Food Blogger Recipe Swap. I’ve always been interested in trying out recipes from other bloggers blogs. I wanted to join the Secret Recipe  Club but it shut down. I came across this group by chance and requested Amber Dawn who blogs at Simply Made recipes to enroll me as a member. My first post and I’m a bit late but then better late than never. The other participants posted their recipes before Thanksgiving Day.     How does this group work? Well, its quite simple. Every month (except during holiday time), Amber will ask who would like to participate in the event for that particular month. We add…

     Land of the Dawn Lit Mountains    As I had mentioned last month, The Shh Cooking Secretly group started by Priya Suresh of Priya’s Versatile Recipes is traveling round India state by state. Not physical travel, but cuisine wise. For the month of October participating members had to come up with dishes that are popular in Arunachal Pradesh with the given secret ingredients. This state wise cooking is opening up a whole new world of cuisine for me. I’m learning new names of dishes, new ingredients and different cooking methods. Food in Arunachal Pradesh in general does not have much oil unless its a fried dish and they depend largely on ingredients grown or available locally. People of Arunachal Pradesh love their meat and bamboo…

    Food on Sticks is fun The 109th theme for FoodieMonday, Bloghop is On A Stick decided by the initiator of this group Waagmi who blogs at Cooking is Funn. Just a few days ago my daughter in law posted some photos of their visit to Kuala Lumpur. She showed us food stalls serving all kinds of food on sticks or skewers. While most appeared to be meat and fish based, I could make out a few sticks of veggie stuff. Serving food on sticks or skewers is fast becoming popular at Bars, Lounges, Dinner Parties, Cocktails,as Street Food as people don’t want to get their fingers dirty and food on sticks or skewers does look pretty, colorful and tempting. Just a few days ago I…

    Just the right time to have ice cream    It has been really hot for the past few days in Montreal. Its humid and just the kind of weather all Canadians enjoy. People are out walking, jogging, having picnics, swimming, sailing, lazing in the sun. Hubby and I want to be indoors as the sun is too much for us. My dad is here, his first visit to Canada. He is from London, so he too is enjoying the really sunny hot days. When I run for the shade, he thinks I’m mad. So I had to remind him that I get more than enough sun back home in Mombasa, so I’d rather enjoy the cool or cold weather.    Anyway, its the right theme…

    Kabalagala (Ugandan Pancakes)#BreadBakers So many different types its unbelievable I didn’t have any theme in mind when I volunteered to host the month of February for the Bread Bakers group.As Christmas got over and the year was ending I knew I had to think of a theme pretty soon. I went back to the rules for participants and there the word pancake kept staring at me. The only pancakes I know are the usual Indian ones like dosas, uttappams, chilas etc and of course the typical fluffy American style ones dripping with melted butter and honey or maple syrup. Did a bit of research (what would we do without Google?) and hey presto the world opened up to me with a variety of pancakes I’d…
