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.

Roasted Garlic Chicken Stew

What other time of the year it is to share this lovely recipe but now. For some years now, I kind of make it a duty to make my own chutney or jam around Christmas time.

All these fancy super foods, all in the name of watching our heights!

Egusi Ijebu

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.
