I have always confessed about my love for potatoes. Yes I just had to be a cliche kikuyu girl. I can add them to anything. This recipe is pretty simple. It asks for baby potatoes pretty sure you can use normal sized potatoes too. If you do try please let me know. What I love most about these potatoes is the flavour. Its different. It not your everyday baked potatoes, there is something about them thats just fabulous, tasty and good to your taste buds. HAPPY COOKING!!

FROZEN

 

I have told you time and time again how much love I have for Pinterest. It is amazing, the new things you discover up there or the new ideas you get are so worth the hour I spend there daily. For those of you who are still too backward and don’t know what Pinterest is where on earth do you live???? Pinterest is a social networking site where you share photos (pin) of things you find interesting (hence pinterest). It can be anything food, drinks, cats, cars, motor bikes, movies, your dream house, wedding ideas, party ideas, ANYTHING!! You save this in your own folders and you can later refer back to them. It’s like an online idea diary. I LOVE IT.
So I found this recipe on there and I thought that it sounded so impossible. I mean how do you blend frozen bananas and come out with a creamy substance? Doesn’t that defy logic? Shouldn’t you get a juice or flacked/shaved ice particles?? Turns out my science is wrong. Once the frozen bananas have been blended for long enough what you end up with is a creamy frozen dessert. Totally SUGAR FREE!!! How cool is that??? I loved this dessert not only coz I like bananas but mainly because it’s healthy. So on a night when you really want some ice cream but you are trying to watch your calorie intake, make this and your craving will be dealt with and your waist and hips will thank you later.

roasted chicken

There times when one really can not be bothered to cook. Times when even boiling an egg is too much work. well that was me two weekends ago. I really just could not be bothered. It was a Sunday after church, i was sleepy and hungry so what I did i called Mr. Man into the kitchen and told him today would be the day I’d teach him how to fix something quick easy and tasty. He mixed up the marinade, we were to hungry to wait for the sauces to sit so he popped it into the oven and we sat then ate. EASY!! life should always be that easy. HAPPY COOKING!!
