Picture to reality: Sesame Pasta
So, I am officially done second year, and I have to admit it was a hard year, the course load, and attempting to keep a difficult job. Regardless it was completely worth it, now I can pay attention to cooking, trying new recipes, reading for fun and not for a book report, and do a lot of yoga. I am not going to make any promise of blogging everyday because you've probably notice that I am not good with keeping my promises so, instead I am going to try to blog as much as possible, and keep you guys updated as much as possible. The next coming days are going to be great because I am attending this Eco-expo and writing festivals that I cannot wait to blog about. But till day, I am going to share with you guys some recipes that I've tried, and hopefully in the coming days give you guys an sight into African food.
I was recently looking at a photo on Pinterest, and came across this really good-looking pasta that I was drooling over. Unfortunately I was not able to gain access to the recipe because there was not link to the picture. Hence, I decided to make my own version of what I thought might be the recipe based on the image. I have to say in spite of turning like nothing in the picture, it turned to be great.
