Kiwi berry smoothie

One fine day in Paris it was 29 degrees and smokin’ hot so I wanted something freezin’ cold and this was a fine cool blend. Easy, peasy, smoooooth 😉 Continue reading

Cinnamon Potato porridge

I had some potatoes I had bought from the farmers market since last week and they started to grow babies and stuff so I thought, “Aijay, now is the time, use it or lose it”. So I thought to make something influenced from my childhood in Nigeria. The original dish has lots of sassy Nigerian-spices, dried fish and a hot chilli kick to it. It is called Yam Porridge. Well seeing as I don’t have any yam or any of the very flavourful Nigerian spices at hand, I decided to try and make something similar. Continue reading

Plus the fact that I have fallen head over heels in love with Chinese mushrooms had everything to do with this. Cook it and you’ll feel what I mean. Continue reading

Crunchy Spelt ‘n’ Oat Granola

A sea of crunch 🙂

It happened on a fine day in London when I wandered into Sainsbury’s thinking, “hmmmmm, I want me some granola or muesli”. Now this was not the first time I had bought muesli but for some reason, on that day (which I remember clearly), the price of one packet seemed ridiculous to me and I was like, whaaaat? (as if it was my first time), I’m gonna make it myself thank you very much. Continue reading
