    Its disheartening at times that some bakeries sell seeded breads that are expensive only to find the seeds only on top and none inside the loaf. Seriously, its like me getting a plain bread and sprinkling some seeds on top. Here in Mombasa, there is only one ‘the bread place’ and its a bit pricey. Occasional indulgence in the variety they offer is allowed. Sometime back we tried out their seeded bread and it was absolutely delicious,with seeds inside and outside the loaf.  I like that slight bite you get from the seeds with each morsel of bread. When I suggested the theme bread with seeds, I had so many recipes in mind that I wanted to bake. However, the one that stole my heart…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -APRIL 2018 #87TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: EXPLORE THE FLAVORS – INTERNATIONAL BREAKFAST DAY 25 I cannot believe that the mega blogging marathon is nearly getting over. However, that does not mean we can relax and breathe. I know already some of my fellow members have already started preparing for the September Mega Blogging Marathon. I still have to begin my search for the theme. For Day 25 the letter is Y. Not many options with Y.  I had youtiao from China in mind. It looks like churros but is not sweet and is served with congee or milk. As I didn’t want to repeat the country I had to cancel youtiao as I made xiao mi zhou  from China. After much thought…

    MEGA BLOGGING MARATHON -SEPT 2017 #80TH BLOGGING MARATHON THEME: PROTEIN RICH DISHES DAY:2 When we were growing up, my dad would insist that we must have a glass milk and a banana before we left for school. I think this continued till I went to a boarding school. Usually we would not want to eat anything in the morning but my mum would be like a strict General in the Army, with her hands on her hips and would not budge till we drank the milk and ate the banana. My sister would hide the glass of milk in the netted cupboard when she would notice that my mum’s attention is on my brother or me. Remember in the olden days when a simple wood…

    updated 30/08/2018 Since I’ve moved from blogger to WordPress, its been a huge learning experience for me. I find that when I finally figured out blogger, I moved and now it takes me a while to get use to terms like plugins, widgets, etc. I try to figure out as much as I can and when I fail have to call my daughter. These days she too is so busy as she is managing quite a few freelance projects which also includes work for my son and daughter in law’s upcoming boutique hotel project The Elementum.She is also trying to promote her own Type.Social as a content creator. Do take a while to check out both the sites. I cannot believe that my babies are now…
