Yoyo Soup…

The first time I cooked this soup, I invited my dad to mine for lunch. I called him on the phone and I started going on about this new soup I learnt to cook from the TV. He was like your mum is not gonna like that. I told him, trust me she wouldn’t mind if she tastes the goodness of this soup.

Baked Tilapia and Sweet Potato Wedges…

This recipe is one of the quickest meals you can make after the day’s hard job. It requires less or no prepping time and it is healthy and super delish… the fish can be cooked straight away as you don’t need to marinate it, the sweet potato doesn’t need peeling, all you have to do is season well,  put in the oven  and wait to enjoy a stress free meal after a stressful day.

Ofada Stew…

This stew is different from ‘ayamase’ simply because of the choice of pepper. Green bell pepper is used for ayamase but if you want the proper local taste, then I think you should try it with the red bell pepper and some tomatoes. To be honest I didn’t discover ayamase until I was in my 20’s.

The year is still very young and the trend at the moment is everyone keeping fit and trying to lose the Christmas weight off.

Spicy Couscous

The first time I heard about couscous was about 5 years ago during my national youth service. I spent a year in Kano, Dala to be precise and I can say categorically that couscous is one of the favourites of the northerners. How they cook it then I don’t know and I never had the chance to cook one as I thought it’s going to be a hassle cooking something so tiny and it just look complicated.

Fish and oven baked sweet potato

This recipe is all down to one of my colleagues at work. We share the same interest in food and photography. So this wonderful day, she started talking about sweet potato and how you can do so many things with it, not forgetting it is healthier than other potatoes. I love sweet potato but for some reason I hardly cook it.
