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????









Weekly Photo Challenge : Layer

Well its time to post a picture for the weekly photo challenge and get some socialising.  Iove the topic this week. Its foodilicious.  When I read “layers” the first thing that comes to my mind is cakes. Layered cakes and icing. Here is a picture of the flower or snowflake which I did at my wilton class recently. Well am just showing my work.



Guess the Ingredients

Lets see whats are rating in a scale of 1-10 on knowing our food just by looking at it.

Some of us are great at guessing what’s being cooked in our kitchen by the aroma of some ingredients which are boiling in the kitchen stove.

We can list a large number of ingredients which help guess the dish of the day, but today lets get together and guess the ingredients by just looking at the picture below.
Lets see how great are we at knowing what we eat or what’s added to our dishes we buy outside.


Some clues might help but wont be fun , am I correct?
So let’s begin by guessing!
I look forward for the guesses  OF THE INGREDIENTS AND MAKE A POST.

Hope we all have some fun.

Best of luck

Weekly Photo Challenge : Nostalgic



This weeks photo challenge is really awesome. I had to stumble over my images to pic one. There are so many memories that make me nostalgic yet I managed to pick a couple.
Although these images are my old residential area which is called jumeira village circle I really miss it after shifting a month ago.
Completely deserted with only a few building developing here and there its such a peace of mind to look out of the balcony no matter the hot climate as its got a serene beauty which can never push you indoors.
Nights are the times that reminds you your Abroad with a line up of colorful lights glooming in the dark sky.
