Hi, I'm WANGECI .Welcome to my online home where I show you how to cook tasty food and make amazing things for your home


So at the beginning of last year I really tried putting up at least one cake/baked good each week, I REALLY tried and I did it for a few months then…………..i fell of that wagon :-( sad…. VERY sad. So at the end of the year I decided that it would be great if I could challenge my self and make  a cake each week but I felt that it was a tad ambitious of me to say I will bake 52 cakes different things this year.

Stir fried pork with sugar snap peas

I love pork and all its products but unfortunately its not that healthy. Now I have been seeing sugar snap peas in many recipes out there and I had never tried making these neither have I ever eaten them so last time I was at City Park Market I asked around for them. Turns out they are a lot like snow peas only that they have larger “peas” inside them so they are not as flat. So I bought a small bunch of them and when I was making pork I decided to add them in so as to make the meal healthier 🙂

I enjoyed the flavour of the pork, slightly hot and sweet and the peas were nice. Different but tasty. I think they mostly take the flavour of whatever it is you have cooked. I hope you will like it. Oooh I adopted this recipe from the Gatronomes Guide and the Haffington post.  HAPPY COOKING!!

If you do not have the fish and oyster sauce you can increase the amount of soy sauce but the flavour is not quite the same
