      Times have changed I enjoyed reading Femina magazine for many years. I found it covered all areas – housekeeping tips, food, recipes, health, children, fashion, make up … basically anything that women identified with. It was not entirely a housewife’s magazine. It also covered modern issues, balancing home and work, career options, finance and so many other worldly happenings. Then slowly the magazine began to change. More pages on fashion and brands started to appear. Now I find it is like any other fashion magazine and not as a whole package to cater for women from all walks of life and different interests. I have tried many recipes from Femina magazine, picked up numerous tips and drooled over food photos. A salad recipe I…

    A good break Sometimes its nice to get away from the blogging world.One needs to take a break and not feel, I need to add a recipe, I need to keep my followers busy, etc etc. Though I had not planned to take a break from blogging while I was visiting my son in Montreal, it was a compulsory break. His computer was not working too well, it was just too slow. I tried uploading photos and it took forever. The first few days I missed blogging but then got busy and didn’t miss it that much. This time round hubby and I made frequent trips to the lovely vibrant and colourful Jean Talon Market. It was a good walk to and fro for both…

    Salad days are back I usually go through these mood phases, wanting to eat junk food, only pasta or chatpata chaats etc. I cannot for some odd reason stick to eating the same type of food every single day. So I am back to my ‘want to eat salad’ mood. But that doesn’t mean I am satisfied with just a tomato. cucumber and carrot chopped and mixed with lettuce. It has to be different. I also don’t like the ready salad dressings so make my own. What are the advantages of eating salad? You may say they are healthy. Yes they are but along with that there are so many other advantages.Salads are nutritious, help you adopt a healthier lifestyle, helps you eat several servings…

  • Avocado & Mango Salad

    April 17, 2015mayurisjikoni

    RECIPE: AVOCADO & MANGO SALAD Avocado & Mango Salad is one of the easiest salad to make. Tasty, filling and a perfect light meal during summer or hot days. This salad keeps you full for several hours. Adding homemade fresh orange dressing makes it more exotic. Starting from November, the weather becomes really hot in Mombasa. By March, April it just becomes too hot and humid. Those are the days when I just want to make quick salads and get out of the kitchen. Usually, try to make salads that are tummy fillers as hubby and I have them as light lunch or dinner. What To Add To Salads To Make Them More Filling? The obvious choice is protein like meat, chicken or fish. However,…

    Narendra Modi rocks!        Last night got back from a late show of the movie Equalizer and couldn’t fall asleep immediately. One shouldn’t watch violence before bed time as sleep disappears. I decided to check out my facebook page and the first thing I see was the speech by Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi at the Madison Square Garden shared by a friend. http://goo.gl/47tJIi      A true leader, a great orator and a humble man. His speech captivated the audience and was inspirational. For a person who wants to do so much for India its every Indian’s duty inside and outside India to support this great cause. We all dream of a better, cleaner India and if we put our minds to…

    I missed my salads My dream holiday to Italy was worth ever penny. I cannot thank hubby dear enough for organizing the trip. It was the first time we booked the whole tour through Cosmos, and what a wonderful experience. Organized tours have advantages and disadvantages, but the advantages definitely outweigh the disadvantages as age creeps up on us. We met people from different cultural backgrounds, different countries and maybe some may develop into friendship.During our daily briefings, everyone complained about having to get up really early, but next day everyone would be on the bus 5 minutes earlier all eager to discover Italy through the eyes of our ever smiling and friendly tour leader and our very capable and careful driver. Italy is all…
