CONFESSIONS OF A MOMMY

I open my eyes partially and take a stealthy look at the timepiece that sits under the TV at one angle of the room. It reads 6-something. I can't believe it is morning again. I only started sleeping! As I turn around hesitatingly, torn between whether I should wake up or 'conclude' my slumber, my baby who lies in an enviable beauty sleep by me starts making moves and opening her mouth, waiting for it to be filled. That is how she lets me know she needs to drink some of the milk Mother Nature provides for her through me. 

5 BREAD RECIPES YOU MUST MAKE


Hello! Bread is the one word that can be used to summarise food because it is the symbol of everything food. When there is bread in my house, there is this joy that envelopes me because I know that even if I do not make a meal, there is something substantial to nibble on. Bread to the rescue! Making your own bread at home is one of the best things you can do in your kitchen because:

4-INGREDIENT COCONUT ICE CREAM

Because of my love for coconut, Mr N made me a cup out of a coconut shell and it is so pwetty. I started keeping some salt in the cup as you can see in my video here. Then I decided to love the cup even more by making some coconut ice cream to be served in it.

I had something to tell Mr N and it wasn't something pretty. It was a long list of complaints about things he did and didn't do the previous day that enraged me. I was hurt and I was trying to find the right words, to channel my feelings to him. I didn't want my complaints to lead to a quarrel like it has before. After scribbling my list of grievances, I read through it and saw that there was no way this wasn't going to start a fight.

Each time I make this salad, girl number one dives at it. She even attempted to make hers one day when I wasn't making any. When I made this version which I am going to show you with the cabbage chopped more finely, baby girl loved it!. How sweet and nice to see a toddler eat salad happily. It is the perfect dream-come-true for a mother who ants to see her kids LOVE salad.

My maternal and paternal grandfathers were phenomenal before they passed on. They and the fathers that are still here with me are such a blessing in my life. Here are the five fathers in my life:

THIS GUY'S CREATIVE COOKING SKILLS WILL SURPRISE YOU


Denis Barika


I have never seen a guy who has such awe-inspiring cooking skills. I mean, apart from the ones I see a far off on TV, I had never seen and known one that can make local dishes, intercontinental dishes and everything in between... Until I virtually met Denis Barika in a food group I created called, "Cameroonian Foodies." Denis, who goes by the pseudonym, Lapiro possesses an unusual culinary aptitude. This Cameroonian dude not only knows his way but the in and out of the kitchen. When you look at his food pictures, you would think he has received topnotch culinary training. The shocker is he hasn't. The former Business Analyst and MBA holder is just passionate about cooking with no strings attached.

After drooling over his pictures on Facebook for a while, I decided to settle down for a chit-chat with him. He tells us all about how he learnt to cook, his woman's reaction to his constant cooking and the lovely reward he got for making dinner for a family. Enjoy!
