Coconut Yam Porridge (Yam pottage)

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.

I must confess my love and attachment to coconut milk now.

Ponmo Salad

I know what you are thinking, really? Ponmo salad? Why not! If you eat potato, fish, beef and chicken salad then ponmo salad shouldn’t sound weird to you at all. Ponmo (cow skin) is well loved by all; it is affordable and has been nourishing lives since 1800. Lol. This simple recipe is another twist to Nigerian salad.

Yam and plantain frittata

Frittata is an egg dish that can be eaten as a main meal or brunch. It is slightly different from an omelette as you have to finish a frittata off in an oven.
