I have grown to really enjoy hosting. It is not something I do often, however when my energy, time and money align, I always have a friend or two over. In typical Kenyan culture, when guests are over they have to be served something to eat or drink, no matter how simple. It is something deeply ingrained in us and I pride myself in being a warm host. While it is not a must, even for a brief visit, I ensure my guests nibble on something delicious! On the day I filmed these yummy carrot muffins, my friend was passing by to drop of a document that needed my signing. “Sitakaa ata” she said, to whic ..read more

Back To Basics – The Perfect Coleslaw

Coleslaw gets a really bad rep, especially on twitter. Me personally, I have always thoroughly enjoyed coleslaw. It is infact my favorite way of eating cabbage. I love the crunch. I love how it introduces dimension to a plate. I love how it adds a soft sweetness to spicy dishes. There are certainly many different ways a slaw can be prepared. What I would encourage you is to explore, and steer away form those that demand your slaw only have cabbage and dressing. That is indeed boring but you know, we do not do boring here. As you go into the world of delicious coleslaws, allow me to introduce y ..read more

It is not a secret that my most favorite place in the entire world is Maragoli. It is where my mind completely rests; and as someone with mild anxiety and a constantly ticking mind, that’s a huge thing. It is a place I find absolute peace. It is where I know I am completely safe and overflowingly loved. The emerald hills are story-book pretty and everyone is so warm and kind. One of the things I really love about finally growing up is the ability to drive out whenever I want. And because my work can be done form everywhere, I try be away from Nairobi as often as I can. I am writing this post f ..read more

Back To Basics – Uji ya Wimbi

There are certain, specific dishes that are very reminiscent of home. Every person has their own, and several too. For me, the small of mandazi or drop scones reminds me of home. The aroma of pilau reminds me of home. The smell of a baking lemon cake reminds me of home. And the smell of warm uji – particularly on a drizzly morning or late afternoon – also reminds me of home! I have always loved uji (porridge) even as a child. I loved it as part of breakfast or even in place of chai ya saa kumi. Uji ya Ngano (wheat porridge) is very common in the coast, Uji ya Mahindi (corn porridge) common thr ..read more

One thing I love more than an early morning during the work week is a late – super late – and super slow- morning during the weekends. A slow morning allows you to take in the beauty of the day. The slower pace of things allows your spirit to merge with the wave of time and ride it. Slow mornings allow you to taste the sweetness of the songbirds. As someone who really goes hard during work weeks, slow weekend mornings are a much welcome relief and calm sweetness. It also allows me to really take time and eat yummy things; and yummy things need not be complicated ones. One of my current weekend ..read more

Cheesy Chicken Pasta Bake
Kaluhi's Kitchen

I think it is universally agreed that the best recipes are those that are both very simple and very delicious. Do not get me wrong, I honestly do not mind putting in the time and cooking meals that demand that investment. It always pays off in the end! However, sometimes one is just tired, but still, in the mood to eat something supper yum. In instances such as those, I almost always turn to my cheesy chicken pasta bake. This recipe is simple and an easy crowd pleaser. It is a default when impromptu guests come knocking. It is impossible not to love and just as difficult not to savor! This is ..read more

Creamy Peanut Risudza (Managu)

One of the many many many gifts my parents bestowed my sisters and I is intoroducing us at a very young age the wide array of Traditional Kenyan vegetables. We have always enjoyed them as children, and not even as adults with our own homes & with our own babies, traditional kenyan vegetables are a very frequent appearance. For me, it is what I eat 95% of the time and I often joke if I were to leave the country, our mbogas are certainly top 5 of the foods I would miss. Each part of the country has their own  mbogas but it is the western communities that have the widest array and the ri ..read more
