Catfish pepper soup

Some few weeks ago, one of my instagram buddies posted catfish pepper soup and tagged me. Her picture got me drooling and craving. I told her I was going to make mine….. Anyway, long story short, I made catfish pepper soup that night under the pretence that it would help my cold at the time.

Coconut Yam Porridge (Yam pottage)

4 comments

I love yam porridge or yam pottage as it’s called in Nigeria but you all know that I don’t cook it all the time as I leave that for hubby to do. He does it better in my opinion and he’s never had a bad day with it before. This time, I did try to cook it myself with a twist and minimal ingredients and it turned out amazingly well. I must confess my love and attachment to coconut milk now.

2015 has been a great year for me and I am eternally thankful to God and all of you my precious beautiful readers. I came across a post from Lindsay of pinch of yum some days back and that gave birth to this post. I have so many recipes on the blog but the truth is I rarely make most of them except on special occasions.

Nigerians and rice, we eat rice any day any time. We love it so much that we can strictly go on rice diet and not mind. Just recently, we had some Nigerians betraying our beloved parboiled white grain rice and went for some fancy rice/rice substitute like brown rice, quinoa, dark wild rice, bulgur and the likes. All these fancy super foods, all in the name of watching our heights!

When I was pregnant with my daughter, all I could manage to eat at some point was Mr Monday’s okra soup. Ok, before you start wondering, Mr Monday is hubby’s work colleague and this okra soup was one of their go to soup when the boys were hungry then. The first time I had this meal I couldn’t believe my mouth. Lol.

Nigerian Egusi soup, Nigerian soup recipes

Egusi Ijebu

0 comments

Eweso omo Alare, This is one of the easiest Yoruba local soup you can ever cook. Egusi Ijebu as the name implies is from Ijebu and it is very popular too. Le bae is from Ijebu but we hardly cook this soup but the days he feels nostalgic, I have got to get myself in the kitchen and make the soup. This time around I got a bit of help from him especially when my egusi soup started clumping.
