I am yet to come across a Nigerian that doesn’t love meat pie. Meat pie is one of Nigeria’s popular street snack and it’s loved by all. Growing up, I always look forward to when my mum would make it or when my dad would buy for us for being good, from one of the popular confectioneries. Meat pie is not just a Nigerian thing;
Eja yoyo, eja Eko, this is your go to snack on a very hot afternoon. Hello again and I’m sorry I have been MIA for a while. I need to get my acts together really fast and get back to blogging again. I miss blogging tho but I have just […]
My love for smoked turkey now has got no bounds, if I tell you I hated smoked turkey when I first had it, would you believe it? I hated it so much that I stopped buying and cooking it. I recently started cooking smoked turkey again after I used the recipe below and I also add it to soups like egusi and efo-riro.
I can do all things cooking and baking, not in the case of this Nigerian egg roll. I couldn’t make it to save my own life until recently. As easy as this recipe is, I struggled with it a lot and I almost gave up because each time I tried making it has been a disaster. Honestly, it is one of the easiest street snack in Nigeria and it is not rocket science.
Who said you can never get an African man to the kitchen? Well that means you don’t starve them enough because if you do then, they would know their into the kitchen. Ooook don’t eat me yet, I’m only joking and yes, never ever starve your man. At home I do 85% of the cooking and I’m always grateful to hubby
We Nigerians don’t joke with our street foods at all. In fact they are like the things that keep us going and together. We love our foods and we forget all our sorrows and problems and just enjoy the moment. One of our favourite street snack is chin chin.
I’m starting today’s post with a little humour, if you don’t know what kokoro, sisi pelebe(peanut brittle), ekanna gowan (sugar candy), balewa, baba dudu and the likes are, then we are seriously not mates. Lol I feel like Methuselah now. I’m just kidding. Growing up, Kokoro was one of my favourite snacks, it is crunchy, sweet and spicy
I have been banned from making any more Nigerian buns at home except if it’s going to be a gift or for business purposes. I make it a lot and I tell you, somebody’s waist line is not smiling at all. I’m sure you are thinking why am I starting this post with the negatives? I tell you what! These buns are very addictive
The last time I posted a recipe for puff puff, I mentioned that I needed a puf-fpuff detox. To be honest, I have not been able to keep away and I have been playing with a lot of different flavours to make it gourmet. This recipe is one of the many that I’ve tried and I loved every bite of it. The most interesting part is that,
One of the many snacks a Nigerian wouldn’t say no to, is sausage roll. It is a tasty snack and very easy to make too. I was at home last weekend and I had plans to make some sausage rolls for a friend but after I baked these little devils, I tasted one and I was hooked. I changed my mind instantly. I know it is bad and selfish of me but lord knows you would do the same.
