Mini Fish Pies…

I made these pies today with my little one. It is easy and fun to make, there was a bit of mess involved because of the help I had from Her Royal Highness which I found a way around in the end. I cleared up separate work space and placed her own little baking items there; that did the magic.

Beef Kebab and Plantain…

Happy new month my fellow foodies, I can’t believe we are in the second month already. Today’s recipe could pass for a snack or brunch but typically, it is eaten in Nigeria as beer-mate after a stressful day, mostly a reward after a long day at work. Valentine is around the corner and this recipe can grace your table on a date night.

Simple Spinach Smoothie

Here is a little healthy treat for all to end this beautiful week. I call this smoothie my energizer. It gives you energy, help you lose weight; keeps you healthy, you will still have your fruit a day and it is also high in fibre. I substitute my breakfast with smoothie sometimes and it is always filling.

Yoyo Soup…

The first time I cooked this soup, I invited my dad to mine for lunch. I called him on the phone and I started going on about this new soup I learnt to cook from the TV. He was like your mum is not gonna like that. I told him, trust me she wouldn’t mind if she tastes the goodness of this soup.

Baked Tilapia and Sweet Potato Wedges…

This recipe is one of the quickest meals you can make after the day’s hard job. It requires less or no prepping time and it is healthy and super delish… the fish can be cooked straight away as you don’t need to marinate it, the sweet potato doesn’t need peeling, all you have to do is season well,  put in the oven  and wait to enjoy a stress free meal after a stressful day.

Ofada Stew…

This stew is different from ‘ayamase’ simply because of the choice of pepper. Green bell pepper is used for ayamase but if you want the proper local taste, then I think you should try it with the red bell pepper and some tomatoes. To be honest I didn’t discover ayamase until I was in my 20’s.

 
Chicken

Simple Roasted Chicken…

The simple things in life are sometimes the best things. Today I’m sharing another very simple chicken recipe and it’s simply irresistible.  If you are trying to stay fit and healthy, white meat is one of the many options you can choose from for your protein diet. The year is still very young and the trend at the moment is everyone keeping fit and trying to lose the Christmas weight off.

Suya Popcorn Chicken…

There is no story behind this wonderful recipe. I woke up this blessed morning, checked my fridge for what to cook and I ended up with suya popcorn chicken. If you love chicken and you want to try something new and not necessarily going to KFC to enjoy their lovely chicken popcorn, then I think you have come to the right place.

Lemon Mix Detox

Happy new year everyone, I pray this year brings peace and happiness to us all. It is very important we start the New Year right, hence this amazing lemon mix recipe. It is good and refreshing but I recommend taking it in the morning as it helps the digestive system. This mix can serve as palette cleanser and it also has its own health benefit.
