Carrot Pancakes

One of my favorite things to have for breakfast has to be pancakes. I love them so much, I have them with some eggs, sausage or chicken with a drizzle of syrup or honey every now and again, when I want to let loose and 

Local Coconut Rice

Local Coconut Rice

In a typical Nigerian home, rice is consumed at least 2-3 times a week. Rice is definitely a staple in our country and no matter how much we love it, we get tired of it sometimes but we have no other choice but to eat 

Coconut Yam Pottage

Coconut Yam Pottage

If you know me, you know I’m a Yam lover and I enjoy it in any form it is cooked in and that was how this Coconut Pottage or Asaro (as my people call it) recipe came about.

You know those moments when you’re completely uninspired and just plan to throw things together for dinner and you end up making magic? Yeah, this was one of those moments. I had planned on making Coconut Rice, then I spotted the tuber of yam in the corner of the kitchen and I immediately thought of making porridge. I had to pick my struggle, so I picked yam pottage, since we eat rice often. I also eyed the coconut milk can on the kitchen counter and I decided to spice up the pottage with some Coconut Milk and I tell you, it was a great decision.

I cooked the Yam in Coconut Milk and added some Coconut powder to enhance the flavor and the result was the most tender yam pieces infused in a coconutty, tomato rich broth, oh so yum. The Coconut Milk in this Yam pottage makes it so rich and silky. The flavors of the Milk and spices are a match made in food heaven and I’m glad I even tried it.

Have you ever made Yam Pottage with Coconut Milk or this was totally a discovery for you?
If you haven’t tried this before, I totally recommend that you do, its a whole different level.

Stay safe and Enjoy!

Dalgona Coffee (Whipped Coffee)

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you’re all doing good and I hope we all had a somewhat decent Easter Holiday despite everything going on right now? Well I tried to; I did a mini Easter egg hunt with my boys and I also cooked a lot this weekend and it was quite fun. The kids had fun, everyone’s stomach was full, Netflix and chill, so I say it was a pretty decent weekend.

I know its trying times right now and I hope we are all social distancing, self isolating, sanitizing and washing our hands? Please if you haven’t been doing all these, try to incorporate them in your lifestyle, it is important,
the Corona Virus is real, let’s flatten the curve. With that being said, I have an immunity booster recipe coming your way soon.

Now back to the order of business, this recipe is the new craze right now, it is a delicious whipped coffee recipe also called Dalgona Coffee. It is made with just three ingredients and it is absolutely delightful. I tried my
hands on it and now I’m completely obsessed, like how are we just finding this out?

If you are a lover of coffee, this is a great way to enjoy your coffee and it is super quick and easy to make, so you can incorporate it into your breakfast sometimes. It only requires three ingredients that are easy to buy or you
just have them laying around in your pantry, so this is not hassle to make at all.

I have posted a recipe on my Youtube Channel already, but I thought I should share on here for people who would rather read than watch a video (If they still exist, lol). Anyway, I hope you try it out, the recipe is
pretty easy to follow and if you do try it, let me know how it went for you and if you have any questions, leave them in the comments and I’ll be sure to respond.

Enjoy!
