Funwich

Summers are here with a vengeance. All one wants to do is drink gallons of cool drinks and eat… but what? Sandwiches of course. Light, fresh and delicious. This sandwich is an old favourite. It uses one of my favourite vegetables, capsicum! There is just something unique about its particular flavour. Add it to your…

The ‘joy’ of giving..

Okay, I know this title makes it sound as if I am going to launch into a tedious, goody-goody sermon but don’t worry, I won’t. But I can’t help puzzling about this topic at times. The other day, I ordered a couple of pastries to give to our household help. I gave them to her…

The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie

How did Agatha Christie do it? How could every book she ever wrote be the perfect murder mystery? Death on the Nile, And Then There were None and Murder on the Orient Express are few of my top favourites. Only thing is being a whodunnit you can read her books only once. But there are…
