Mushroom Farro Risotto

by Khushboo on September 10, 2017

Hi guys from London!  As excited I am to be back, it’s a different kind of excitement than what usually accompanies my trips here.  As of tomorrow, I’ll be starting a 3-month Diploma in Gastronomy, Nutrition & Food Trends  at Le Cordon Bleu.  Given it’s the world leading culinary school, I have always wanted to do a course […]

Hey guys! Recently a number of people have been asking me about my opinions on the documentary What the Health.  Despite its popularity I actually haven’t watched it yet and nor do I plan to any time soon.  From my understanding, it offers a biased critique of the health impact of meat & dairy products consumption […]

Five Things Friday

by Khushboo on August 18, 2017

Hey guys! Rather than engage in small talk, I’m going to dive right in: After reaching out to my friends on Facebook about whether or not to purchase a Kindle, I bought one since the consensus was largely ‘yes’.  In terms of reading, it was probably the best decision I could’ve made.  As much as […]

Is it me or did summer sneak out of nowhere?? I leave for London in a couple of days and I am PUMPED! Between the longer days, al fresco socialising, picnics in the park, and so much more, there’s no place I’d rather be during the summer months.  One activity I’m particular looking forward to includes […]

by Khushboo on May 3, 2017

Considering I just shared my Chickpea Chili recipe, I questioned whether it was overkill to already post another recipe featuring legumes. Part of me thought I should save it for a rainy day, but these Healthy Falafels are just too delicious to wait any longer.  I mean look at these bad boys: While the food […]

Hi guys!  Given I have quite a bit of travel coming up over the next few weeks, I’ve really been embracing home cooked meals and spending time in my kitchen.  Although I’ve been sharing quite a few recipes on the blog lately like my K Weigh Penne alla Vodka, I’ve also been bringing back old […]

I am far from a baby expert…and rightfully so given I don’t have any kids of my own.  However between hearing tales about motherhood from my sister and getting first-hand experience whenever I spend time with my nephew Sameer, I feel like I’m constantly learning something new.   I’ve learned that Sophie the Giraffe is a […]

Rice cakes topped with…

by Khushboo on November 23, 2015

Hey guys!  I’m currently in the midst of packing before heading to Florence tomorrow for a good friend’s wedding.  To say I’m excited would be an understatement.  Especially now that we have reached the age where our own friends are getting married, attending weddings have become so much more special.  Before I enter the land […]

Protein Pizza

by Khushboo on September 14, 2015

In my group of childhood friends in Nigeria, each of our homes was known for at least one specialty dish.  For example, my friend Rids had brownies & cheese balls; we always requested crispy noodles at Nitya’s home; Ayesha’s pantry was always filled with the best variety of crisps & biscuits; Henna’s baked spaghetti was […]
