She prided herself in using fresh ingredients; my best part of the soup is the bone marrow and biscuit-bone that she uses.
As I got better, I craved for catfish pepper soup but was too weak to make one. I missed Nigeria at that point, trust point and kill joints, where all catfishes come in different shapes and sizes. My catfish is not much of a point and kill but frozen. To be honest, it is not bad at all in taste but just that you have to settle for the size you see.

At most Nigerian parties (owanbe), Fried rice is usually available on the menu. Everyone seems to have different method of cooking their fried rice. I catered for my Cameroonian friend once and she said she would rather have chopped meat instead of liver, mainly because of her guests, it added a different twist to the rice.
I used to think I know how to cook stewed beans till I met my hubby, I am more inclined to cooking my sauce separately (Agoyin/buka style) as that is the way I like it. But ever since I learnt how to cook his style of stewed beans, I have not looked back and with the help of a pressure cooking pot, it means I can cook my beans in about 45 minutes.
