Kohlrabi salad




Its become a habit in my family when visiting other countries especially Sri Lanka to come back home with huge boxes of produce. So as per tradition I decided to visit a local market in Wellawata before returning home this year.

Nutty Strawberry Smoothie


Drinking plain milk is not my thing. Yes I have bad habits and being a woman just past 35 , I know its time I started to drink milk regularly or my bones are going give me trouble . Now  for me, drinking milk is like drinking medicine (LOL), my mother in law forces Milo down my throat every time I visit her, well not really force me but she makes this huge mug of Milo and I dutifully drink it down, while my hubby and sis in law give me that knowing smile, both of them know I am not a big fan of the brew.

David Rocco's Grape Pizza


There are so many recipes written all over the place I keep meaning to post. But at the end of the day my brain just goes mush and cant think of any words to write. This is one recipe that has been sitting in my drafts for a while, finally after a few finishing touches its getting posted :)
David Rocco is very popular in our house. My mom loves watching his shows.   On a recent visit to Tanzania on an official workshop, my hubby returned home with  a huge bag of gorgeous grapes!!! I have been wanting to try his grape pizza recipe but with grapes being slightly expensive I kept putting it off.

Beetroot Curry


My husband had a friend who loves adding beetroot when making curries. I rarely cook beetroot or buy it mainly because I had little idea on what to do, and when I was little my mum used to have boiled beets to eat with rice and I hated it then. But after I saw a few beetroot curry recipes by Madhur Jaffery and Peter Kurvita  , I was inspired to try and make one myself . I added a bit of both  recipes to make this curry. Goes down well with plain cooked rice and a green salad.

Quick Beef Stroganoff



Jamie Oliver was introduced to my family by my sister , who brought his second book The Naked Chef 2. At first I wondered why on earth does it say naked chef?  It was after some time I finally saw an episode of the naked chef and  thought wow this guy is different!. Unlike the usual chefs I have seen, he is messy, uses his hands and is full of life and should I dare say slightly bonkers, when he talks about food. But his books and recipes have changed our lives and even my mom has now started watching his shows and creating her own version of Jamie inspired recipes.
