ONION RINGS 2.0

Let me first start by admitting that I sometimes can be a perfectionist.  SO I made this recipe a couple of days ago but forgot to do one minor step.  Honestly, without this step, the onion rings still turned out sooo yummy! But I just couldn’t lie to myself this once to let it go. I…

OCEAN SPELL

Little hungry soul wanderers dreamt of a day tucked in the ocean breezes wading through the humid air in each other’s company. Fairly a dream, a desire in its mucking state that came knocking its doors, unexpectedly sooner, over a call of laughter sky high and untainted excitement. K1: Heeyyy can I steal you next…

PLANTAIN PARTY

The few times I’ve been to Nyama Mama, I order Plantains as my side dish – WITHOUT FAIL. That has since spiraled into my current addiction to have it with everything. So the other day, I went to the Game store* to specifically buy items that were on my shopping list when my eyes were…

ELEPHANT HILL, ABERDARES 1/3

A few months ago, my two friends (Peter and Bernard) and I decided to take on the challenge of the infamous Elephant Hill situated in the Aberdare Ranges southern end, 90 km north of Nairobi. Truth be told, I didn’t know this hiking expedition would be as tough as what people made it seem on…

BERRY VALENTINES

This Valentine’s Day we are going to do things a little different.  There’s this pressure for couples to go on an extravagant dinner and spend a ton of money .  We often forget that sometimes less is more.  I sat down and thought about what I can do for you that’ll be budget friendly but still exhibit…

TIMELESSLY GREEN

Consistency is key. But I haven’t been living by this mantra lately. Juggling work and blogging is so hard guys!!! The struggle of working and enduring traffic daily is grueling. I can’t even imagine what those who have kids and a family to take care of are going through.  So lately I have been on…
