Honeycomb bread

a bread makers poem

The dough was sticky
And made me think
Will this work

Time was tricky
With the weather hot
And the oven on
It was a magic
To my naked eye
To see the sticky
Dough rise high

Making balls
Was smooth as cheese
Watching with a glee
As they shone like a bee

With loads of honey
Ang sugar tomake it runny
A bit of saffron
To make the different

Written by me 😊

In My Kitchen : part 1

I have been very bisy with practicals and experiments. This never stopped me from taking a few photographs and learning some food styling and photography. My phone memory reminded me that I’ve also got my very own memory full of words which need to be shared on my blog. So here i am typing while catching my one year old trying to pull every single item he sees at 11:30 pm.

Julia child has been one of my inspiration and to be precise it was a few months after i started blogging, I watched Julie and Julia.during which time i dint have an idea on which field i am.most interested on. This movie showed me the right path and enlightened my  blogging genre. This movie reminded me my passion for food, the love to experiment,  the anxiety to try new recipes which all came in to writing in the form of blogging.

I wish i could find some time to detail this breakfast muffins But time doesn't permit. Let me quickly give the recipe. A cup of Slightly roasted semolina, 1 cup fresh milk, 2 eggs, 4 sausages meat, some green peas, 2 tablespoon cheese, a cup of water and salt and pepper to taste.all mixed together and baked on a microwave for 3 minutes.  Later 2 teaspoon water poured on top and baked for further 2 minutes. Add your own vegetables and sauces to enhance the flavour as this recipe is not spicy.
