Quick Dinner

Hi everyone! Its been a busy few weeks and I had little or no time to cook anything tangible for this blog. Either that or when I cooked, I was so hungry and ate before I could take a picture!*hides face in shame* Well here is a really quick dinner that my roommates and I ate on our last night together in 2010. We are all going away to our families in the next few days, so we had a little dinner. Nothing fancy! Hope you enjoy.


*Mixed veggies
*Season salt
*black pepper
*Soy sauce
*Oyster sauce


Grease the pan with 1tbs of oil and place defrosted fish in pan. Add seasoning salt, oregano and black peppers to taste. allow to fry for about 15mins, turning fish every 5mins.


Grease pan with 1tbs oil, add mixed veggies and allow to fry for 5 mins. Add 3 tbs of soy sauce and 3 tbs of oyster sauce. Add chili sauce if you wish. Stir and allow to cook for 10mins.


Peel potatoes and boil in salted water for 10mins or until considerably soft. Grease pan and add potatoes. sprinkle basil on potatoes and allow to roast for 7 mins. stirring occasionally so it does not get burnt.

This meal took me approximately 30mins to make (with the help of my roommates) But it is really easily and really tasty!!! Try it and let me know!

****Serve with a glass of white wine for maximum laughs...:D

Merry Christmas and Happy new yr to all my readers! I would be at my parents till the new year. I would try to update from home! Till next time

Hugs and Kisses

Curry Goat w/ Roti

One of the things about visiting a lot of food blogs daily is that I get a lot of inspiration on what to cook. Sometimes they do not even have to be food blogs just regular blogs inspire me and I am grateful. On one of my numerous blogrounds(I dont remember which blog sorrrry!!!!) The blogger mentioned Curry goat and Roti and I just felt an instant hunger pang(Exaggeration much??? set out to make it the next day. Here is a simple recipe.

(click to view larger image)
Curry Goat

1lb goat meat-cut into bite sizes
1 large onion, chopped
3 Scotch bonnet peppers,
1 teaspoon allspice/adobo
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
3 tablespoons curry powder (more or less to taste)
2 garlic cloves, minced

Season meat with the seasoning salt. Heat the cooking oil in a large pot & add 1 Tablespoon of the curry powder. Cook stirring constantly until the curry powder darkens quite a bit . Put meat in pot along with onions, scallions, garlic & scotch bonnet pepper. Fry a little (about 5 minutes) over medium heat. Add thyme, remaining curry powder, black pepper & a little (1/2 teaspoon) of seasoning salt. Cover with water & simmer uncovered until meat is very tender & sauce is thick. Taste sauce & add more salt, if necessary.

Flour – 1 cup
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Oil – 4 tsp
Warm Water – 3/4 cup
All-purpose flour – for rolling and dusting


In a large mixing bowl, mix Flour and Salt well. Add Oil and mix until all lumps are gone.Add Warm Water a little at a time to form a medium soft dough ball. Do not overwork the dough. Add few drops of Oil and coat the dough ball. Cover and let it rest for 15 minutes.Heat skillet on medium heat. Knead the dough once and divide into golf ball size balls.Dip one ball into the All-purpose flour to coat and roll it out into a thin disc. Keep dipping the rotli into the dry flour to prevent it from sticking to the rolling surface. Flip to the other side once you see bubbles appear on the surface. Allow it to cook for 10-15 seconds.

This was a G.O.O.D. dinner on a snowy evening after work. Hope you enjoy!!!

p.s I added some potatoes to mine because I felt like it...
p.s.s It is my birthday in 2days!!!!
p.s.s.s HAPPY NEW MONTH!!!!!

Have a blessed week!!!

Riblets et Potatoes

This week I am challenging myself to eat three times a day. I have VERY bad eating habits where I just do not eat. Not because I do not have food at home, but because I am not hungry. This has made my metabolism VERY slow. I am trying to jump start it(sigh). along with my ridiculous gym regimen, It is about to be a GOOD winter!

So today I cheated a little.. I went to church without eating..:( But I had a Jamaican patty right after church and got home and made this YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY DINNER! It might not be the healthiest but I was craving something messy with bbq sauce all over it. Tehehehehe..and voila..:)

I am making these YUMMY cupcakes tomorrow if you are in the Ottawa area (and I know you) stop by my house and grab one around 7ish. lol

*Have a good out for my article on soon!
*I also just signed up for a new project locally(Ottawa) as well! I am excited about it too! I'll fully let the cat out of the bag once I have everything set in stone!
* I am going to start a new section about drinks soon..I love making different drinks too and discovering new drinks..alcoholic and virgin..:) Watch out or that!

p.s Pardon my horrible photography. The lighting in my new kitchen is horrible and my flash was SO far away..and I was too hungry to go get it! lol

Scotch Eggs

#FactAboutMe I do not eat eggs. Among many other things. I am not a picky eater, I just do not fancy eggs. If I discuss the main reasons for not eating them on this blog, I think I might offend some people. So I would just keep it moving with the post. Tehehe

Among my friends, it is common knowledge that I can cook. Even though I might not make something often if i am given a recipe I can possibly make it. So almost weekly I get asked to make almost everything you can think of. The bestie asked me this week to make him some scotch eggs. I immediately said "I don't eat eggs so I cant do it" to which he replied "who told you to eat it? I just want scotch eggs joor" Anyways he had to beg and beg and beg and I called him "beggy beggy" after which I looked up the recipe. Turns out it is actually not that difficult to make. So I set out to make something I would not eat. Here is the process.

Boil the eggs...

This is all you need basically..

cover the eggs in the sausage meat...

roll in bread crumbs



I think it turned out really well. This is what it is supposed to look like right? My roommate from St Vincent ate it and she loved it so much. So I guess it tasted good. lol

p.s After i finished typing this post, I actually went and tasted what was left!!! I ate eggs for the first time in like 10yrs!!!!! i ate chicken abortion!!! #DEAD! Ohh in case you are wondering it tasted good! YAY!!!

p.s.Bestie I need a better reward than twitter shoutouts..KMT! #JustSayin

p.s.s I used the recipe from avartsycooking and tweaked it..thanx mama


7 eggs 1 extra egg to glaze
1 roll Sausage
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp Goya Adobo seasoning
1 tsp garlic/curry powder
1 tbsp flour

1. Boil eggs over medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove and put eggs into cold water. Set aside.
2. Remove sausage and add adobo curry, garlic powder. Work into sausage with hands
3. Break last egg, whisk.
4. set aside bread crumbs
5. Prepare pot to deep fry or Prepare a baking pan with foil.
6. Drain water and peel eggs. Roll each egg in flour.
7. Scoop 1.5 tbsps sausage mixture into your palms (dampen palms). Make a well in the center. Put egg in center and work sausage around till covered. Roll covered egg in beaten/whisked egg.
8. then roll in bread crumbs
9. fry.

Rice with Spinach sauce + plantains

I am sure almost everybody gets tired of the regular rice and stew meal. It is such a staple in the Nigerian diet that sometimes I just want to rebel nd not eat rice and stew for weeks at a time. But alas the Nigerian in me cannot survive without carbs so what do I do? I make alternatives instead. I had rice with a spinach sauce this week and plantains and I can guarantee you that this is not healthy and I ate WAYYYY to much for my own good..*but it tasted so good..:(* I was however able to console myself with the whole spinach are vegetables so therefore it cannot really be that bad…haha!

I have been invited for a live cooking show next week. I am so excited! I am not cooking on it though, only watching! I think it would be a good opportunity t see how the industry works and I can ask questions as well that can hopefully help me in the direction I want all of this to head in the future. Till next time, here is some delicious food.

p.s I wrote a column for Last week. You can check it out HERE. BANGA SOUP

p.s I apologize to everyone I was supposed to send recipes to. I was very busy this month of September as I moved and took on a more challenging aspect at my job. I would get around to them as I have become better at time management and have actually set aside time now to reply inquires each week. E-mail me or Tweet at me as usual!

Meat-Pie + Pasta Galore!

I had been craving meat pie for a while now and not the #abaversion Jamaican patties(LOL) but real Nigerian-kinda-meat pies. Well this weekend I called my favorite cookbook aka my mother and asked for a recipe. I also asked a few friends and got to work. The dough turned out amazing! the sauce part is the east part for me. For a first timer I guess being around the kitchen I knew the proper consistency and it turned out well overall. Next time I would have to work on the aesthetics though... I wish they looked as good as they taste.

I eat a lot of pasta because not only are they the fastest thing I make, they are also very easy and taste great. Seen as they are carbs, I am trying to limit my pasta intake therefore I am trying whole wheat pasta and other healthier choices instead and so far so good. Here are two different outcomes from this week.

I call this "Jollof Pasta"-- its just like making jollof rice instead you use pasta and add some ground beef...:)

Szchewan Stirfry

If you need recipes you know the drill!!!(E-MAIL ME OR DROP A COMMENT WITH YOUR E-MAIL) I have had a VERY exhausting week and its only about to get worse...sigh! But God dey!!!! Have a blessed week! (going to nap...*yawn*)

I'm Backkkkkkkkkkk

Hello loves!!!

I am so sorry for the impromptu hiatus I took from this blog. So many people emailed, commented on my other blog, DM-ed and tried to contact me to see if all was well.Yes all is well. You see it is summer and once it is warm outside I cant seem to seat down in one place. So almost every weekend ( which is normally when I cook for this blog) I traveled or was at one engagement or the other. Alas, summer is almost over, I am rounding up this season(still got like 2 trips)and preparing for school, work and the dreaded winter time!

Anyways back to regular scheduled programming. Over the summer fruits seem to be in abundance in this country for a good price too. I always buy strawberries, kiwis, mangoes, banana's etc in large amounts and when I cannot finish them before they go bad, I make a lot of smoothies. To make any smoothie, just cut up the fruits, add some yogurt (preferably vanilla) add some ice and blend and viola!!! You have a refreshing summer drink.

This one right here is Kiwi and banana! It was so tasty. I actually used vanilla ice cream, because I was out of yogurt.

I also made lasagna over the weekend for a friend of mine that was visiting. We ate lasagna, had ice cream and watched girlie movies...:) GREAT TIMES! The recipe for lasagna is below.

All cut up...Yummmmmmm.....sooooooo unhealthy!

-One pack oven ready lasagna pasta
-Ground beef
-ragu or pasta sauce
-red peppers, onions. Or other veggies(Frozen mixed veggies)
-vegetable oil
-Cottage cheese
-Mozerella cheese
-Spices(salt, maggai, pepper,curry,etc)

For sauce.
In a clean pot put 3 tablespoons of oil(allow to get hot add ground beef and fry. In another pot, add chopped onions, and peppers or other veggies. fry for 5 mins or till onions are sautéed. Add salt, Maggie, curry(whatever spices you use). Then add ragu sauce and let it is boil for 10mins on medium heat. Add cooked ground beef to sauce and let it cook for 10mins.

Lasagna- (if they are not oven ready, you can boil them till it is soft first)

Place one lasagna in pan add sauce on top. Add cottage cheese, mozerella cheese and Repeat layer until ingredients are done. Preheat oven to 350 and place in oven for 30-35mins (but if u boil it, it should be ready in 15-20mins). and voila we have Lasagna!

Well I am back guys! I promise never to disappear without warning again....Coming up on the blog are ravioli, more summer smoothies, ekpangukwuo, banga soup, meat pie, puff puff and more!!!!

It is really funny how this blog started as a hobby but by the grace of God it will be going somewhere BIGGER IJN!.

Anyway this week I made Bruschetta as an appetizer for dinner I had with some of my friends. It was really good and it is also really simple.

P.s Can you tell I am reallllly tired!!!!!! Off to the movies..#sigh!

I am dedicating this song to my daddy. I am daddy's baby and God knows without him I would not be half the woman I am today. Everyday I thank God for him and my Mum and I cannot wait to start making money so i can spoil the both of them! HAPPY FATHERS DAY DADDY! I'll upload the Mp3 of this song later. xx!

by Beyonce

I remember
When you used to take me on a bike ride every day on the bayou
(Remember that? We were inseparable?)
And I remember when you could do no wrong
You come home from work
And I jump in your arms when I saw you
(I was so excited)
I was so happy
(So happy to see you so happy to see you)
To see you

Because you loved me
I overcome
And I’m so proud of what you’ve become
You’ve given me such security
No matter what mistakes I make you’re there for me
You cure my disappointments and u heal my pain
You understood my biz and you protected me
I treasure every year in place a comemory
And thats why I want my unborn son
To be like my daddy
I want my husband to be like my daddy
There is no one else like my daddy
And I thank you for lovin me
(daddy daddy daddy)

I still remember the expression your face when you found out
I’d been on a date and had a boyfriend
(my first boyfriend, you shoulda seen your face)
I still remember I called you cryin
cuz of my tattoo coulda said “Beyonc© I told Ya”
So instead you said you’d get one too
(You and my momma said yall’d get one just like mine)
Words cant express my boundless gratitude for you
I appreciate what you do oh
You’ve given me tight security
No matter what mistakes I know you’re there for me
Cute my disappointments and heal my pain
You understood by biz and you protected me
I treasure every extraordinary memory
that’s why

I want my unborn son
To be like my daddy
I want my husband to be like my daddy
There is no one else like my daddy
And I thank you (thank you) for lovin me

Even if a man broke my heart today
No matter how much pain I’m in I would be ok
Cuz I got a man in my life that can’t be replaced
His love is unconditional
It won’t go away
And I know I’m lucky (lucky)
Know it aint easy
Men? who take care of their responsibilities
Love is overwhelming??
Stop a tear from falling
I love you so much daddy

Thank you
You’ve done so much for me
I love you,

I’m so emotional daddy
Every time I think of you
I get emotional daddy
Every time I think of you
There is no one else like my daddy
No one will replace my daddy
Daddy daddy daddy daddy

Apple Pie A'la Mode

Hello everybody, I hope you are all having a splendid Sunday! My church to day was just amazing. We had anointing service and wow, wow, wow, wow is really all I can say at this point! I needed direction last week and after today's service, I can happily say I know everything would work out and God name alone would be glorified. I like the direction God has shown me and I am just working towards the end goal. It would definitely not be easy, but with God by my side....... Ok enough preaching...LOL!

So as we all know, this week was the voting week for Nigerian blog awards, most of my friends wanted me to 'bribe' them with home made cookies, dinners, macarons, you name it, I was asked to make it. LOL. So a few friends came over on Saturday night, I made apple pie for the fist time ever, and we had it with Ice-Cream and strawberries!!! YUM!! I also made macaroons but I was not able to take a picture it was DEVOURED!

MY TASTERS L-R ME-CICI-VANCHI-AIMIZZY-DAMS..:)(Pardon the way I look in this pic! Choi! Babes were tired!)


Apple pie a'la Mode..:D

You would think after all that fattening food, I would not eat for the rest of the week and just umm drink water, but NOPE! I made Afang soup and pounded yam when I got back from church, I took it back to my mother land men! I had missed this soup. The igbo's call it Okazi.

...and that is it! I hope with this post, I have been able to convince you and not confuse you to VOTE FOR ME! There are a few hours left to vote! so click HERE and VOTE Ms.O's kitchen for BEST FOOD BLOG!

What I did this Afternoon

Today a friend of mine that I met through church came to spend the day with me. we went shopping and walking and then came home and made a late lunch. It was all very fun and I enjoyed my time with her a lot. I am very grateful for the few friends I have made since moving to Ottawa 5 yrs ago. They keep me grounded and my church family are very special to me. My pastor and his wife are like my parents. They worry about me, call me, take care of me and most importantly pray for me. I love my church and if you are in the Ottawa area ensure to visit Rhema Christian Ministries, and you would NEVER want to leave! I can guarantee that.(ok enough promo...LOL )For lunch, we had Jollof rice, with chicken and Plantains. We were so full we fell asleep on the couch and woke up an hr later to have cookie dough ice-creme, while giving ourselves a manicure!!!!! Great day indeed! although rather unhealthy..gonna go try and work this food out with my WII!!!

Hugs and Kisses

P,S A heartfelt R.I.P To Nigeria's President Umaru Musa Yaradua.

Food for the Week

Rice and chicken, Stew and Efo Riro

Efo Riro

Fried rice + Chicken


Sorry the pictures kinda suck this week! I was tired when I was done!

Hello everyone! I hope everybody's weekend was amazing. I had a VERY busy weekend albiet a little lazy at the same time. On Sunday night however I decided to cook my meal for the week in an effort to save time and actually eat food.(which BTW is my biggest problem-I don't eat enough!!!) My schedule during the week can be really crazy, and as the summer months draw nearer and the appeal to workout is even higher, I find myself going straight to bed(read twitter) by the time I get home after 7pm. I decided to cook enough for the week, and refrigerate it and hopefully this would allow me to make better and healthier eating choices. So I cooked Fried rice, stew and efo. I am sure somwhere during the week, I would make alferdo pasta or lasagne or even steak, but these are staples that can take me a long way for the week. Everyone should try it...I did this in about 2 and a half hrs. an voila I am set for the week. Have a blessed one!

2cups rice
5 chicken drumsticks
Frozen Mixed veggies(corn, peas, carrots, peppers,)
Chopped Onions
Oil to fry.

Boil rice in water and a pinch of salt till it is soft.
Boil chicken with the spices till it is cooked and put in the oven to grill. about 300c for 30mins
In a frying pan, Add 3 table spoons of oil, When hot, add chopped onions, frozen veggies and spices.
Allow to fry for 5mins or until onions are sauteed.
Add rice stir till the rice is thorougly mixed with the sauce.

Do this over and over till the rice is done. Depending on how big your pan is and how much you make.

remove chicken from oven and voila we have fried rice and chicken..:)


Ingredients. ...

Spinach/Clean and cut.
Beef (Boiled) Save stock.
Dried fish
Tomato sauce
Fresh tomato
Onion powder
Crushed red pepper
Minced Garlic
Palm oil

Saute onion, tomato and garlic in palm oil
Add tomato sauce and let simmer for 3-5 mins.
Add boiled meat, stock fish, dried fish
Add beef stock (Very little, cos spinach produces water)
Add spinach
Add all seasoning.(maggi, adobo...whatever you like)
Simmer and cook down till there's little or no liquid left.

Very easy to make...make sure the heat is on low the entire time..

Curry Rice

Its been a minute since i posted on here. I have slacked with my daily cooking :( I am trying to do this diet thing. So I have eliminated a lot of carbs from my meals and I'm eating mainly fruits and veggies *insert sick face here* This does not mean once in a while I do not throw in some carbs. Like last night I ate poutine. It is a Canadian delicacy *insert yummmynessssss here* so fattening but so good. This post is about curry chicken. It is one of my favorite sauces with rice, except stew. It is also very easy to make. Made this sometime last week. Sooo good!

If you need Recipes please drop a comment and I will email them as per usual..:)

Hugs and Kisses


Chicken(chicken breast, boneless, cut in cubes)
Garlic cloves
Curry Powder
sour cream
Spice(salt,maggi,adobo,etc depends on u)

in a pan fry onions and garlic in curry till it is caramelized
spice chicken in another pan and let it sautee for like 10mins or until you can tell it is cooked (do not let the water dry up)
Once chicken is cooked, pour 1 table spoon of sour cream into chicken broth to thicken it. add onions and garlic from earlier and let it simmer for about 5mins. TASTE. if it has a very sharp/sour taste, add a little(I/2 tsp) flour to neutralize it. let simmer for about 5 more minutes and it is ready.

To whom it may concern- seeeee!!!! I wasnt lying!! #uknowwhoyouare

Anyway today's post is a meal that my special friend(LAWL) made for me when I went to visit him. I took a nap and he cooked me dinner! Don't you just love 21st century men? So after I ate that as his house that weekend, I was craving it some days later and set aside to make mine, with some changes of course..So please which one looks better?? ***pick mine..pick mine** hehe!

If you do need recipes e-mail me and I would be glad to send them to you. The reason I don't post them up is because I don't have exact measurements of things. I just use my eyes! But if enough people tell me they dont mind, I would put them up..:)
Steak with Pasta and sauteed tomatoes

ball pepper

Spice the steak with curry, maggi, salt, garlic, onions etc and boil for like 10-15mins or until a little soft.

pop in grill under medium heat for about 20mins after that. you can rub grounded pepper on it if you are a big pepper person. turn once or twice while in the oven so that both sides gets cooked. Cook until soft.

for the tomato sauce just cut up tomatoes, onions, half a bell pepper and the little red peppers and fry on low heat for 10mins. add spices.

Have a Fab week everyone!
