Taking A Tangy Morning “Tonic” Shot Boost

On top of taking Vitamin C tablets, been immersed in making this tonic concoction in batches to help me with inflammation and to make me feel better about giving my immune system a boost as we are now prone to colds and coughs. To keep any symptoms away it can be drunk cold or hot…

What’s Cooking: Chicken Fakeaway

Really been missing that Chinese takeaway not going to lie because my favourite spots seem to be closed and didn’t want to try out a new place because I like the old ones just fine. So now I’m going to fake it until I make it with my own fakeaway and it really comes close…

7th Sense Fine Dining at The Quorum

I brushed up on my table manners expeditiously the minute I got invited to experience the 7th Sense at the Quorum. To be honest fine dining does cost you a pretty penny but it is one of those meals that you will never shut up about once you have a taste. Now that lockdown restrictions…

The Serene Bangweulu Wetlands

After rescheduling numerous times due to you know what, finally got the holiday sorted but all I knew about the north-eastern part of Zambia was that there’s a beach with white sands and Lake Bangwelulu not much else. This trip was a very educative and informative one, admittedly I knew nothing about the wetlands and…

Dinner the Quorum Way

I was a bit nervous about going out to eat but very glad that I did because I had a good time and of course my first outing in four months had to be done in style at The Quorum. This swanky spot only just recently opened their doors and the only place opened for…

Best Butternut Squash Soup Ever

This is by no means an exaggeration but it has to be said that this is the best butternut squash soup ever because not once have I made this has it survived the next day, or maybe I just don’t make enough. The sweet, caramalised, nutty flavour of butternut when roasted blended with coconut milk…

In these unprecedented times when most countries are still in lockdown and going food shopping has become a less enjoyable experience we now consider ordering in, even though the President has said that all restaurants, gyms, cinemas and casinos should now be open. Understandably the hospitality industry has been hit hard but many eating places…

Toasted Bruschetta Brunch

Bruschetta is a term traditional from Italy, an antipasto which consists of grilled bread rubbed with garlic, topped with olive oil and salt. There are many variations and may include toppings of tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, or cheese. Now, I realise that bread has a bit of a reputation because it rises in the…

My Day on a Plate

Our everyday lives and routines have been dramatically changed in what seems like an overnight switch. The anxiety of uncertainty, isolation and lockdowns has got me snacking more than usual and not the healthy type but I want to change that. Going to the flower farm inspired me to perhaps start growing more than just…

Dairy Free Food Swaps

These days people are choosing to go dairy-free because of intolerances or food allergies. My reason was both health and intolerance which I talked about in my being lactose intolerant post. Sharing some food swaps that I make for those everyday eats because the most common question I get regarding not having dairy is, how…
