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.

Easy Homemade Mayonnaise

I am sure you are thinking, really why make mayonnaise when I can simply buy from the shop? Well, you never know when these skills come in handy and making your own mayonnaise might just be what you need. Making mayonnaise is one of the easiest things you can do in the kitchen but it tends to go wrong quickly once you miss the vital step.

Is it safe to call myself a food blogger or am I still getting there? One thing I noticed since I started food blogging is that I want everything to be perfect. I don’t want to plate like I’m serving in a cafeteria but like I’m being watched and my customers are paying a lot to see my food pictures as well as my recipes. I made this fried yam recently and it was almost perfect until I got a phone call from someone

The Yoruba’s have a saying that “obe ti baale ile kii nje, iyawo ile o gbodo se” meaning “a wife does not prepare a delicacy her husband does not want or eat”.  Well I beg to disagree, hahaha with the hope that my ancestors wouldn’t mind.

What brought this on? Bae doesn’t like peanuts, and well he is kind of allergic to it. Each time I bring up the idea of cooking groundnut soup,

How To Make Akara

I recently made a post on how to peel soaked beans by using a blender. I made some akara and even preserved some left over peeled beans for later in the freezer. Akara is a very popular meal and street food in Nigeria. In fact akara is readily available almost everywhere you turn to, it is also served on special occasions too.

Have you had one of those moments where all you crave for is something that can’t be easily sourced? You just want it and if you can’t find it then you try to make your own version or recreate the memory you have about that particular food. I have a craving for Ewa aganyin, (mashed beans and special sauce) Ewa aganyin is one of the most popular street foods eaten in Nigeria.

Ayamase (Designer stew)

Ayamase also called designer stew is the ‘fraternal twin’ of the ofada stew I recently made. The same ingredients are used except for tomatoes and instead of using the red bell pepper; you use the green bell pepper. You can use variety of green peppers and chillies you want. Ayamase requires a lot of patience when cooking and in my opinion it tastes a lot better when left to rest for some few minutes or hours before serving.
