My Weekly Food Diary


 I am a beginner in food styling but A pro in cooking

now how can i say am a pro in cooking?

well yes am not boasting but i do really know how to cook ingredients together. my week was so productive and i cooked up a few low carb meals while in the meantime did some food styling with my previous weeks leftovers.


Sunday Dinner

Its always good and healthy to have food with less oil. we all love french fries and backed potatoes but they do taste differently although both are from potatoes. i decided to grill the potatoes on a griddle and it turned out well.



Monday Dinner

Low Carb meal for dinner

having a low carb meal is not something i fancy but my husband likes it which is why i was tempted to try my own ideas with some inspiration from online sites recipes which i hardly went through many months ago but had a quick glimpse at the photos. now i do agree images do matter alot. someone can be creative and recreate a dish by just looking at the image of a finished product. isn’t that marvelous. which is why am working on taking photographs with a good sense of food styling and bit of lighting with my 16 mp s4 mobile.


dinner was vegetarian lasagna. it was so yummy will post  recipe soon.

Tuesday Breakfast


I’ve herd people say they had pouched eggs, i even have seen Jamie olive do it on television but I’ve never tried it not tasted it. so my breakfast on Tuesday was pouched eggs. i wanted to video my pouching but decided against it due to my fear of ending up with a pot full of egg pieces floating on the water. finally i should say my pouched egg was such a success now who said you need to learn the how to poach and egg?



Tuesday Dinner



oh meat loafs are so easy to make and are simple yet delicious.

i see meat loafs as a substitute for steak. i served my very own version of meat loaf with some mash potatoes a left over from kfc meal 🙂



Thursday breakfast



Thursday mornings make me lazy cos the next day is a Friday and a weekend. i love weekends cos its always carb meals and my husband eats them with no objections. so Thursday breakfast was pancake with some kithul treacle and the left over batter went into these lovely bunt cups which I’ve been waiting to use for the past 6 months since i got it delivered from eBay. its microwavable and i love the shape.




 something new



so i decided to try the egg pie which my husband kept sending pictures of when i was in sri Lanka. its was like a tart filled with caramel mixture which my mum makes and baked. yea it was good.



for the very first time in my life i tested a recipe for spinneys magazine in Dubai and this is my photo shoot for the recipe. await the recipe on their June issue.



this was labelled as unniappam but tasted same as our sri lankan kevum. i love kevums its a sinhala new year special sweet.


food styling practice done last week, have i improved????
