Nowadays I have been eating very little meat. Not for any particular reason, or any particular goal in mind, I just found myself having almost none in my servings even in two weeks. But when I do feel like having some, I make sure I make it DELICIOUS! Now I am falling back in love with my meat and I am having plenty of lamb and chicken now. My current favorite ways of cooking my chicken are my kuku wa kupaka (if you have not tried out my recipe yet, what are you waiting for?) and chicken curry. I was shocked when I realized I have not shared this recipe with you guys yet, and decided this month would not end without you having a taste of this awesomeness. It is so easy to make, does not take mush time and it is explosively delicious, in true Kaluhi fashion. This is about to be your newest favorite!
Do you have those things that you postpone doing for such a long time and when you finally do it, you wonder why you put it off for so so so long? Yea, I know you can relate! You guys have been asking for a biryani recipe literally since the day I started this blog, and for some reason, I kept on putting it off. I am not a procrastinator, so I have no idea where aversion towards putting this behind me came from LOL! Better late than never, right? Since we said we are doing better in 2018, this biryani recipe is my gift to you. My love letter to you. My life promise to you. I’m sure you get the point now :DDD
This goat biryani recipe literally bubbles over with explosive flavor. This is the only biryani recipe you will need because not only is it easy, but hands down the best you will ever have. Cook this and show it off to your friends, because you are about to be the biryani pro in your crew.
Breakfast is slowly but surely becoming one of my favorite meal times. I have no concrete reason why, but I just love the ease and beauty that morning hours bring with them. Now that it is January and it is nice and bright, I love having breakfast sitting by the window, the house in complete silence ( I love silence), and just watching how beautiful and tranquil everything looks when kissed by the morning rays. It is a sacred time for me, where I listen to myself, center myself, and nourish my body before setting out to perform the day’s tasks. As much as I can, I try make my breakfast delicious and exciting. After all, being the first meal, and I like for it to set the tone for the day.
I did an Instagram Story for this very recipe last November and you guys COMPLETELY fell in love with it. A few tweaks later, I decided to put it on the blog and on YouTube as well so that you can have it forever <3, and those who missed out on it can also enjoy it!
If you frequent Westlands, you have definitely seen a new restaurant at Kenrail towers right from the road. And that new spot is Mercado! I had been planning to visit Mercado with my younger sister last month for some sister time, however the day we chose, they had closed down. We postponed our date not too far off into the future. And when they reached out to me to sample their brunch menu, I was more than happy to go and try it out. My friends had amazing things to say about Mercado, and I was excited to try out the restaurant for myself. Because we missed our chance to dine at Mercado the last time we were there, I took my sister as my plus one, and it also happened to be her birthday, so that was my treat to her!
This review (and this amazing video) also includes some of my readers’ experiences at Mercado as per their Instagram DMs so that you get a balanced idea of the restaurant. These are our opinions, hence are subjective, so remember what one likes may be what you hate or vice versa since we are all different and that’s ok. I encourage you to check it out yourself nonetheless and see how you like Mercado.
I love my morning jogs!!! I slacked a little bit towards the end of last year when I made the morning November rains an very very valid excuse for me not to go. However, once the rains stopped, I was back on it so hard!! Running in the flood of brilliant January morning sunshine is such a magical experience. Lemme just say this, I am not a fitness junkie, I know almost nothing about fitness, but all i know is, I feel super fantastic, light and good after a sweaty jogs and that is all that matters to me so I run with it, pun intended! *waves pompoms in the air*. I used to hate doing laps in highschool, and I find it funny that nowadays it is what I really love. That does not mean it is breezy! About 3/4 way of my 6 km jog I usually always regret. I get so tired and my lungs start burning because of breathing too hard. I ask myself why it is really worth it. I imagine how easy it would be if I could just teleport back home. I picture myself getting back home and replenishing my energy with fresh juice. I imagine myself finally freshening up, having my breakfast and getting work going. And when I do get home, the sweaty run is always worth it!
I have in particular loving my plum ukwaju juice, for all times of day, but specifically after my runs. And today, I will share my fave with you! <3
