Easy Stove Top Macaroni and Cheese

 

Did someone say cheese, yeah cheese and plenty of it? Lol, so I have been converted to a cheese addict since my daughter started nursery. She wouldn’t eat any meal from school if it doesn’t have cheese in it. So I stepped up my game too, and now make her food more fun other than what she would usually get from school.

Coconut Yam Porridge (Yam pottage)

 

I love yam porridge or yam pottage as it’s called in Nigeria but you all know that I don’t cook it all the time as I leave that for hubby to do. He does it better in my opinion and he’s never had a bad day with it before. This time, I did try to cook it myself with a twist and minimal ingredients and it turned out amazingly well. I must confess my love and attachment to coconut milk now.

Roasted Garlic Chicken Stew

 

What other time of the year it is to share this lovely recipe but now. For some years now, I kind of make it a duty to make my own chutney or jam around Christmas time. Last year was epic, as I made sure every food on my Christmas menu was home-made including the drinks. I was so proud of myself and I kinda felt like a superwoman.

Plantain and Peanut Muffins

 

If you have been following my blog for a while now, you would know I love everything plantain. My only beef about plantain is just that I don’t have the patience to fry it; but why does it have to taste so good when fried? I just love plantain and I’m yet to come across a Nigerian that hates plantain.

Oven Baked Yam Chips

 

These babies right here are very addictive and healthy when eaten in moderation. I was feeling peckish the other day and I didn’t want to open a packet of crisps because I have now decided to start watching my height again. hahaha.
