Nothing like Momma’s cooking… BUT I can try!



Cooked by me. (I DID IT!  & also took a whole lot of pictures to prove it.)

Living away from home has certainly come with freedom and responsibilities – among them cooking for yourself to survive. Okay, I’m exaggerating since there is fast food places at almost every corner – but there really is no food like Home Food, or actually “Mom’s food.”

If there’s one thing you should know about me and my attitude towards food – its SPICY all the way! I grew up loving spicy food from when I was a toddler (so I’m told) and I’ve just grown up loving the taste of really extra-hot food. And no this is not a stereotypical Indian thing at all (I just don’t agree to say that it is, anyway). BUT – yes, I do have a love for curry dishes!

So, along with my weekly efforts of cooking, I decided to be spontaneous and make Chicken curry – courtesy of my Mom’s recipe. Seriously, what would we do without our Mothers! I have to say, the curry turned out pretty amazing; mouthwatering aromas, melting-moment potatoes and an all round perfect meal with rice.

My advice to you – Be adventurous, daring and brave enough to tackle your mom’s recipes head on! It will most definitely reduce the pining for home-cooked food…a little at least.


Greetings, because EXAMS!


Hi, there!

My name is Serita. I am 20 and from the beautiful country South Africa.

Spontaneous and compulsive are two words that come to mind when I try to explain the birth of this blog. In the mind of a student, nothing screams procrastination like the internet – Escaping the word-filled pages of work for just a bit should suffice as a break, right? Well, I think so. Hence, the image of my very first post – ESCAPIST.

At this moment in time, I’m not entirely sure what the content of this blog will include; but what I do hope it does is give you an insight into my thoughts, activities and just life in general!


(and to those of you who are also writing or trying to meet deadlines – Your procrastination break ends now.)
