Award-winning Ogbono Soup.

This soup won awards, I’m in my house, come and beat me.

Dear Nigerian Husband,

I’m beginning to feel sorry for you.

See while you’re still stacking and working hard to come pay bride price, it appears the stakes may be getting higher; you may need to work a tad bit harder. I’m this close to being worried that by the time you bring your people to meet my people, you may not be able to afford my bride price.

Smoothie Spree.

Boys and girls,
I’m still on the smoothie craze!

Forgive me,  soon I’ll be back to writing the Nigerian Husband!
Want to try this out? Here’s what you’ll need:

One large carrot (Grated)
Two bananas (Frozen or not, doesn’t matter)
Three pilled oranges
Two table spoons of lemon juice
1/4 cup of orange juice

Pour orange juice and all liquids into the blender first just to allow the blades of the blender to rotate properly. Follow up with all other ingredients and BINGO, you have you a nice carrot smoothie.

Enjoy

Let me explain.

After my exercise yesterday, I decided to Continue reading

Nigerian Puff Puff for the Nigerian Husband.

Dear Nigerian Husband,
I’m sure you’ve noticed, I hope and wish you’ve noticed that I’ve not written you for many months now.

Since The Contender and I parted ways, I thought you’d just surprise me and finally show your face.

Well, the joke was on me. You refused to show up, hence, I went Continue reading

Emma, Learn to Cook! 

Next time never ever dare me or tease me with Nigerian food(s) I don’t have at my disposal!

Here’s the story.
Over the weekend, my good friend Emma thought it wise to tease me with photos of cake he baked. He was huffing and puffing about that cake and how his neighbors were all lined up at his door waiting for the cake.

Emma was basically trying to belittle me and my cooking skills.
Well, you my friend just got served!
Here’s a picture of my dinner last night.
It’s chicken-mushrooms in a white wine sauce.
Now beat that!
I decided to treat myself to nice dinner last night and at the same time cook something I could throw back in your face!
