Mikebe Farmer - The tin farmer

What do you do when you dream of having your small kitchen garden but all you have is small piece of concrete? However, this has not stopped me from creating my own lovely kitchen garden using plastic bottle.
My bottle garden is thriving and I have enough basil to prepare pesto twice a week.
I do not have to worry where to find Basil anymore because I have fresh, organic from my kitchen mikebe garden. If you fancy a Pasta and Pesto meal you are invited!

Chicken Recipes - Easy Recipes

This is for you all looking for new chicken recipes ideas, or just easy recipes like a simple mom. Here in this blog you will find food recipes that are simple and healthy Imagine this recipe and make it. It is easy to make recipe and from a Mom it is healthy too. Thin slices of chicken are first, flavoured (I do with black pepper grinded fresh plus salt) then covered with white wheat flour, then in eggs after that bread crumbs. Put them in hot oil to deep fry. when ready golden place on paper napkins to absorb extra oil. Serve with salad, boiled potatoes instead of chips. If you can serve with pan cooked broccoli with garlic and butter -that will be super cool. Broccoli is good for health.

Eating Healthy In Nairobi - Home Made Signature Chicken

I call myself a Happy Housewife for a reason. I love what I do, cleaning, cooking and being the manager for my domestic ltd and my talented 10 year old singer (recording artist) and actor. Being a stay home Mom allows me to be creative in the kitchen. This is the chicken I love most, boneless thigh you find a nice one in Uchumi...(Uchumi should pay me for saying this :-) There are many ways I serve this chicken, with chapati, Piadina( Bread made in the area where my second home is),boiled potatoes (meru potatoes)or with oven baked potatoes and veggies. Accompany with Salad (as you can see in the picture it is rocket-rucola with olive oil and shredded parmesan cheese) my son loves this to bits.
