I’ll just pretend I didn’t disappear for more than a month without notice, and, because you guys love me, I’m sure you won’t mind.

I heard about this soup from a woman in one village market here, in Abuja. I recently discovered it, and you cannot stop me from going there every friday now(the market is a friday market). I have found new foods and ingredients that I have never seen, or heard of, before, and I am fascinated. I didn’t know so much variety exists in Nigeria when it comes to food o. Na wa. Everytime the women see me now, they start laughing because I take a notebook with me, sit down, and ask one of them to give me a recipe I have never heard of. Continue reading

Quick Chicken Wings

Crappy picture alert! I made these at night and the lightibg conditions weren’t the best. Mea culpa. Don’t judge these wings by the pictures though! They were very nice!

You can use this method and recipe for any other cut of chicken, just vary the cooking time. It’s a really fast way to cook chicken, and it took 20 minutes from preparation to eating. *Muma, you’ll love this!!!*

Chicken in Eggplant Sauce

I CANNOT believe I haven’t posted this yet. I’m sorry for holding back such a delicious recipe from you. Mea culpa.

A while ago, I went to visit a Ghanaian friend of mine and she offered me rice and one sauce like that. I was in love! The sauce had a texture I couldn’t lay my hands on, a velvety smooth mouth feel. I asked her what was in it, and she said eggplants. I was intrigued. I ate my fill ojare! Who no like better thing?
