Don’t let your mango go to waste now that it is in season. Mango lassi is one of the many ways you can enjoy mango other than just eating it. It is served as dessert/drink in India and Bangladesh. It can either be served as a savoury or sweet drink. You can jazz it up with honey and spices if you want.
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.
As easy as this soup is, I always make a call to my mum still, to ask for the recipe all over again each time I need to cook it (don’t ask me, I don’t know why I do it). My mama makes the best okra soup ever, whether plain or the one pot soup and she doesn’t mess about in the kitchen, she knows her onions. I made this okra soup on Sunday after church and I couldn’t help but share with my fellow foodies.
Let me clear the air before I talk about this recipe, this is not nkwobi. I usually make peppered chopped cow skin for hubby and his friends but this time I decided to make it with cow legs with another twist.
I’m still on about valentine and #bae. Valentine should not leave you out of pocket and should not be a thing of impressing others for the wrong reasons. We should learn to embrace change and do something new sometimes. If you go out on a date night at every val’s day, why not give it a miss this year and stay at home to cook something really quick and special for your love.
This valentine let your bae treat you like jollof rice. Never let any man or woman treat you just like any kind of white rice. Bae, you are jollof of life and you are no jollof gate. Here is a quick recipe for basmati jollof rice.
Nigerian government have messed up valentine for all hard life baes..lol well you’ve got no excuse now but to make valentine happen for your loved ones. you dont have to spend heavily on gifts and you dont buy true love with gift either.
I made these pies today with my little one. It is easy and fun to make, there was a bit of mess involved because of the help I had from Her Royal Highness which I found a way around in the end. I cleared up separate work space and placed her own little baking items there; that did the magic.
Happy new month my fellow foodies, I can’t believe we are in the second month already. Today’s recipe could pass for a snack or brunch but typically, it is eaten in Nigeria as beer-mate after a stressful day, mostly a reward after a long day at work. Valentine is around the corner and this recipe can grace your table on a date night.
Here is a little healthy treat for all to end this beautiful week. I call this smoothie my energizer. It gives you energy, help you lose weight; keeps you healthy, you will still have your fruit a day and it is also high in fibre. I substitute my breakfast with smoothie sometimes and it is always filling.
