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. Zobo is a dried type of leaf and it is also called hibiscus leaf or sorrel and it can be easily sourced from the market.

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.

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.

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.
