Easy banana and coconut loaf

My friend and her son visited us sometime before Easter and I, being my naughty self got her to bake with the kids before she left. She couldn’t say no and yes it was really fun, the kids loved every bit of it. My daughter and her son were just over the moon and bless her she was really patient with them.

Semolina Pancake with coconut milk and caramelised banana

Whilst growing up, I remember my mum making pancakes for us with corn flour. Truth be told, it is one of the best pancakes I have ever eaten. It has a taste I can’t really describe but it is divine.

Recently, I was looking for what to cook for breakfast and pancake came to mind. I thought of the closest thing to corn flour and I decided to use semolina powder. They are quite similar if you ask me.

Piri Piri Chicken

If you love hot and spicy food then this piri piri chicken is for you. It is delicious and  moist and you can adjust the hotness of the chicken by adding more or less chillies to sauce.  Piri piri chicken also called peri peri chicken is easy to make and it doesn’t require much effort. In fact, the chicken marinade and the oven, does most of the job for you.

The good Ol’ Suya Burger…

I made this recipe last valentine’s but didn’t blog about it as the pictures I took were not good enough due to poor lighting although, I shared it on Instagram. The weather was pretty kind to me last weekend and I made this as brunch for my family. Every bite of this suya burger was juicy and yummy. I can’t wait to make it again.

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.

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.

Spicy Couscous

The first time I heard about couscous was about 5 years ago during my national youth service. I spent a year in Kano, Dala to be precise and I can say categorically that couscous is one of the favourites of the northerners. How they cook it then I don’t know and I never had the chance to cook one as I thought it’s going to be a hassle cooking something so tiny and it just look complicated.
