REPOST: DELICIOUS TILAPIA & COUS COUS

Hello,

Recently we have been facing some challenges with our site. This resulted in unavailability of some of the posts but not to worry we have successfully restored them with the exception of the Tilapia & Cous Cous recipe below.

Nairobi’s food industry has seen a tremendous growth in the past few years. There are more and more restaurants and different cuisines to try. Some of the ingredients you come across at these establishments you are doubtful that they are sourced locally.

When I randomly came across a pack of Couscous at a local supermarket, I was beyond excited and couldn’t wait to try it at home.  The package contained preparation directions which were simple & very easy to follow.  The results were beyond my expectations for a first try!!!

I decided to add a MY own touch to the ingredients by serving it with some vegetables and Tilapia which are locally available ingredients.

For this dish I decided not to go crazy on the ingredients since I am yet to work with it so much to understand the different flavor combinations which work.

EASY BANANA BREAD

Oprah surprised the world with her “I love bread” remarks but don’t we all my sentiments exactly especially banana breads.

A few years back I used to enjoy some freshly baked banana bread at a restaurant which frequented however it unfortunately shut down. So after weeks of mouthwatering delicious looking Instagram banana bread photos and promising recipes online I gave in and made my first attempt which although good it was a bit too sweet for my liking but I reviewed the recipe by slightly reducing the amount of sugar in the recipe. 

The best thing about this recipe is the fact that  the ingredients are readily available and I think they can be found even in the baking beginners kitchens. The preparation and cook time of the banana bread takes longer than my other baking experiences which I have previously shared here but the results are equally delicious. Read more

BANANA MUFFINS

I have just began my baking journey and as promised I will be sharing my experiences, recipes and results with you guys.

I consider myself to be an infant in this process still taking the initial steps which are hard but the feeling is incredible once taken. My plan is starting with some simple muffins, cupcakes, cakes and bread before venturing into the monsters, can’t wait!!

I had some banana’s that were going bad fast. When they get ripe, I prefer making smoothies with them but in this case  I opted to incorporate them in the muffins which were served for breakfast. Read more

THE NRW2016 EXPERIENCE

eatoutkenyaOne year ago, my friends asked me to join them for the Nairobi Restaurant Week and at the time I could not make but I promised myself that in 2016 God willing I would make it happen. So when the posters, posts, tweets and promotions started I was so excited. I could not stop browsing through the eatoutkenya website trying to select a restaurant.

It took about 2 weeks of checking and rechecking and we finally made our reservations at Adega restaurant at Lavington Curve mall. What attracted us was the cuisine they promised, Portuguese and the ambience of the premises from the photos looked promising. Read more

Scotch eggs

I was watching one of the episodes on Master chef, which happens a lot, and one of the contestants made scotch eggs from canned crab which was impressive and this made me remember my pork sausage scotch eggs. During the week when I visited my mum and I really wanted to do something special for her, I just knew that scotch eggs would be a perfect. Read more

Veggie Soup

There are times when you are so busy that when the week ends you look back and think to yourself really! The week is over!  I met my deadlines! Thank God! For me I reward myself by sleeping in on Saturday, making myself a sumptuous breakfast,  catch up on my series and food shows, research on recipes but the best part for me is when I try the new recipes.
