Oil Less Okra Soup


Yaay… Guess who finally cooked oil free okra? Yes, me and I didn’t use salt too… I seriously can’t believe it took me this long to make this guilt free, yummy and healthy Nigerian soup.  I have always known I could make it but the oil eating habit in me shelved the idea.

Banana and Strawberry Smoothie


Today my lovelies, I’ll be sharing this simple and amazing classic smoothie recipe; the banana and strawberry smoothie. Growing up, I had a lot of banana smoothies and sometimes if I needed to jazz it up, I just added peanut butter.

Burrito…bring Mexico to your table

Zobo Drink


The weather is getting warmer and better by the day and I really wish it stays this way. Lawd! I can’t deal with the cold weather. Last weekend, the weather was very fair to us and I decided to grace it by making a very popular drink I grew up having back in Nigeria, Zobo.

Okro Soup (Ila alasepo)


As easy as this soup is, I always make a call to my mum still, to ask for the recipe all over again each time I need to cook it (don’t ask me, I don’t know why I do it). My mama makes the best okra soup ever, whether plain or the one pot soup and she doesn’t mess about in the kitchen, she knows her onions. I made this okra soup on Sunday after church and I couldn’t help but share with my fellow foodies.
