Nigerian Spicy Peanut Stew

Nigerian Spicy Peanut Stew

The first peanut stew I tasted in my life was in Nigeria, and it was terrible! It was really bad guys, I can’t lie. After that first time, it was years till I tried peanut stew again. Let me tell you the story…

Jollof Spaghetti

Jollof Spaghetti

Some people have asked me for my jollof rice recipe; to those I say, “hold please”. I, just like most other west Africans love jollof rice, but sometimes, I want a quick and easy jollof flavor that does not require me making jollof rice. In came my jollof couscous that takes only 20 minutes to prepare. I then became low-key addicted to quick and easy jollof recipes. I have also always loved pasta, so the no-brainer next step was to make a jollof spaghetti. My goal in making this recipe was to make sure it tasted like jollof, not spaghetti and sauce, and if I have to say so myself: I nailed it.

Thieboudienne: Senegalese Rice and Fish

Thieboudienne: Senegalese Rice and Fish

I am trying not to start my recipe posts with the usual “I love…”, so here goes  my attempt. Once upon a time, I was introduced to a Senegalese restaurant in downtown Baltimore by one of my dear Cameroonian friends. This trip created a soft spot in my food heart (aka my belly) for Senegalese cuisine. As a Nigerian myself, I thought that nothing could rival Nigerian food in this spot, but after I tasted the National dish of Senegal, Thieboudienne, there was a mini war for my food heart. Thieboudienne is a mouth watering rice and fish dish that is like nothing I had before.
