jerk chicken

Hi Guys, I have an idea for you to use your oven. I know some of you cook, but I know many do not use the oven often here in Nigeria. I had the privilege of been a guest at a fantastic dinner at my friend’s house. I sat in a corner and chewed on the chicken bone after. It was that good. I enjoyed it and later made the dish in my way.

I am going to tell you how to make jerk chicken. The reason why this is such a great idea is that it would have less cholesterol than if you had to fry the chicken.

Catering Business

You know how these days everyone says they are so busy, or the Lagos traffic is killing, or there are crazy deadlines at work, these could be valid excuses or just excuses to get out of doing embarrassing things. Anyway, I thought you could make some money off people’s busy schedules. I mean no matter how busy anyone gets, they are never too busy to eat.

Eggplant with beef stew

I discovered lately that the Hindi word for eggplants is ‘baingan'. You know what this means?  Baingan is supposedly a word of abuse; derogatory in nature and often used to express an ill-feeling or something without merit - can you beat that?

Groundnut Soup

Recently, a friend was telling me how back in his school days in University of Nigeria, Nsukka (decades ago) he and his roomies would substitute groundnut for egusi in their soup. It was quite intriguing to hear a guy passionately share his cooking experience. Before then, I have heard people mention groundnut soup but combining groundnuts, tomatoes and leaves were considered (by me) as being quite absurd. Thus, I have never given a try out a thought.

It seems I am gradually becoming a foodie these days as all I think of is cooking and eating, I wonder why. Whatever the reason; I’ve decided I won’t be going down this road alone, I am going to ‘infect’ as many people as I can with the food syndrome. So, I am here again with a snack most Nigerians love, and I have noticed a hit with the kids as well.

Buns are fried dough balls with a crunchy outer texture, and they are quite similar to the puff puff but differ in texture. Let’s fry some buns.

Shea butter is popular probably because of its numerous uses and benefits. It is useful for cooking, as well as for skin and hair care purposes. Shea butter is an ivory coloured fat extracted from the nut of the Shea tree (also known as the Karite tree) native to West Africa. Many people cannot do without Shea butter and we have compiled a list of the benefits and uses of Shea butter.
