Cooking can sometimes be a real pain. This is especially true when you are new to the entire process and coming home from a long day of work. This is not to even mention the fact that it can be time-consuming and expensive. Preparing the ingredients, putting them in the pots, measuring them out, and the rest of the prep work is just half the battle. You also have to consider the trip to the store to get the ingredients. There is no denying that the entire process can be overwhelming, especially for beginners. However, it doesn’t always have to be this way when you take advantage of the right dishes and guides. There are some dishes and guides that’ll make the process easier while teaching you the basics at the same time.

One-Pot Turkey Chili

This is a delectable dish that will teach you how to use the spices that you already have to ramp up the flavor. This is an invaluable skill that you’ll use over and over again as a cook. When all said and done, you’ll have a hearty, flavorful chili packed with tons of nutritious protein and fiber thanks to the ground turkey and the kidney beans. These are the two essentials, but you can customize the rest of the dish with your favorite toppings. All you have to do is chop the veggies, brown the meat, add your spices, and then let everything simmer. Everything literally cooks right in the same pot and the only other tools you need are a knife, stirring spoon, and can opener.

Lighter Alfredo Pasta

Who doesn’t love Alfredo pasta? How about a lighter, healthier version? That’s exactly what you’ll get when you take advantage of this pan sauce. Sauces are the heart of most pasta dishes and learning to make those sauces will take your cooking game to the next level. This recipe will utilize a Parmesan-based sauce with a bit of chicken broth and fresh greens. The real key here is the perfectly sauteed, golden-brown mushrooms. They are not only budget-friendly, but they are an excellent way to add depth to your entire dish with the cost of additional meat.

Instant Pot Sausage And Potatoes

The key cooking is learning to utilize flavors. You have to take the flavors you are presented with and learn to make the mesh with what you have. That’s what this recipe on Corrie Cooks will teach you to do. Its a quick and comforting dish that consists of sausages and potatoes. Two main ingredients that go well with a variety of flavors, so you’ll literally have plenty of room to experiment if you choose to do so. You can stick straight to the recipe as well if you choose to.

Super Tender, Spicy Pork

Did you know that you could use a slow cooker to make some of the most tender meat known to man? A lot of cooks don’t know this, but you can. And, what’s so great about this dish is that it will not only teach you how to make super, soft pork, but it’ll make you a more versatile cook. This pork can be used to make tacos, you can stuff it in pitas, you can pile it over nachos, or you can eat it between two pieces of bread.

Sweet Potato Frittata

Speaking of versatility, there is nothing more versatile than making breakfast for dinner. You’ll be able to do just that when you learn to make sweet potato frittata. It’s a simple but complex one-pan egg dish that’s hearty enough to eat for dinner, but perfect for breakfast. In fact, it is just eggs, vegetables, and cheese, so its possibly one of the cheapest dinners you’ll ever make.

Haraka Haraka app to link customers with service providers

Published

on

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
