A couple of weeks ago Kemberley was craving Crepes on twitter and it made me realize I had not made them in a while! I promised to blog about an easy recipe for crepes so here we go! This weekend when I finally had a Saturday off work and could actually have real breakfast! I made Crepes for breakfast! It was the perfect breakfast! Well here is my recipe!

3 eggs
1 tsp Sugar
1 1/4 cups milk
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup melted butter

Beat eggs until smooth. Add milk and butter.

Sift flour and sugar, gradually add to egg mixture.

Beat until the batter is smooth.

Batter will be thin, like heavy cream.

Grease skillet or crepe pan lightly;(what I do is I use a kitchen tissue and dip it lightly in oil and use that to rub on the pan)
Pour batter into pan and rotate quickly to distribute batter.
If batter seems too thick, add more milk in very small amounts until consistency is corrected.
Cook crepe until light brown; turn to cook other side. Remove from pan, lightly

grease the pan, and continue cooking until batter is finished.

Fill crepes with whatever you like. I like good ol Canadian maple syrup. My roommate likes Nutella(chocolate).. My friend liked we all had it with fruit!

Hope you enjoy!

P.S I am in love with 9ice's new song ENERGY!

P.s.s I am gonna be old in a month!

P.s.s I have a huge crush on somone!..sigh!

Cheesseeeeeeeeeeeeee cake!

Hey guys! I made this cheesecake when I went home for Easter/ my brothers bday. my family all loved it. It was my 3rd time making cheesecake ever so I had kind of got a hang of it. Well here it is enjoy! And i had no time to make it look good coz the monstrous eaters I have called my brothers/ lil cousins finished it before i could say jackrobinson!!!!!



2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
4 ounces butter or margarine, melted


1 cup granulated sugar
3 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 8-ounce carton of sour cream


Combine graham cracker crumbs with 2 tablespoons of sugar and the melted butter or margarine. Press into the bottom of a springform pan.

Set aside.
Cream the softened cream cheese with the sugar and vanilla extract.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition. Add the sour cream, which should be at room temperature.

Pour into graham cracker crust.

Bake for half an hour at 350 degrees F.

Turn off the oven, leaving the cheesecake inside for another half hour.

Chill and refrigerate for at least 4-8 hours.

Top with your favorite fruit topping, garnish with fresh strawberries or graham cracker crumbs.

R.S.V.P( rice and stew very plenty)

RICE AND STEW IS A STAPLE MEAL IN ANY NIGERIAN FAMILY. I eat rice at least 3times a week, sometimes more! this is One of the many ways I make it. add some plantains! and voila!!!!! yumm!!

p.s remeber if you need a recipe, HOLLAAAAAA!!!



1 pack meat/fish/chicken
5 big tomatoes
2 red peppers
2 onions
3tbsp oil
3 Maggi cubes
1/2 tbs dry pepper
1 fresh jalapeno pepper(or any really hot pepper)

Cut if needed- Wash the Chicken, add onions, dry pepper, salt, maggi and curry to pot, let it boil on low heat without adding any water at first. Add water, once it starts to dry up. boil till soft,remove and grill/fry if you choose or just let stand.

cut tomatoes, onions, and red ball peppers into small squares. Blend on medium speed till well blended.

Pour into pot and let boil till it is completely dry. stir often to ensure it does not get burnt on the bottom.

Reduce the heat to a 5. Use another pot and(or the same pot you can pour the sauce out of the pot into a bowl) add oil into pot.Add half of the onions(chopped into little pieces),let it melt. pour tomatoes sauce into pot(note it will splash so be CAREFULL, cover pot!!!)

Allow to fry for 5mins on reduced heat. Add Maggi cubes, curry, and salt to taste.

Increase heat back to 7 and allow to boil for 10mins or until sour taste is gone. Add more Maggi or salt if needed.

Add the stock from the boiled Chicken to make less thick and stir. Leave to boil for 5mins. Add chicken,stir and leave to boil for another 10mins.

once boiled taste to see if it taste right, then remove from the stove top. boil your rice, fry your plantains and voila!!!! A typical Naija meal!

P.s This is my very first try and writing out a recipe..let me know if it makes sense!
