Baking Croissants : The process and the lessons learnt

0 Shares

Today my family and I  read from the book of Ezekiel and were reminded about how the Lord can restore, revive and resurrect even the most dire situation. Once we were done with our prayers I went to the kitchen to finish the croissants I started making yesterday morning…yes yesterday . When I was looking for a recipe @sallysbakeblog described making croissants as a labour of love and now I know why! I adapted her recipe a bit and my croissants turned out reasonably well! I put some cinnamon butter in a couple but the children preferred them plain. Next […]

Easy treats to bake with the family: Homemade Bread

0 Shares

Bread was what started my love affair with baking, when I was a little girl I found a book on the history of bread and I loved it. It went through time talking about bread though the ages and had a recipe at the end. I remember how I would mess up the kitchen baking different things (I had to clean up afterwards lol!) and I never stopped baking.  I have not baked bread in a while but with everyone on lock down this is the perfect time. Like I noted in my other baking recipes  I always use the […]

Easy Treats for the family : Beef Suya

With everyone still on lockdown it’s time to think of more exciting things to make at home. Suya is a grilled savoury meat that originated in Northern Nigeria but is enjoyed all over the country.

Many times we see perfect looking cakes or pastries but the truth is that they do not need to look perfect they just need to be made with a lot of TLC and they will always come out right. Most times I am a Carrot Cake or Muffin Mama but this time I tried making Cinnamon Rolls for the first time ever , they were so good that I […]

What I learnt from “King of Boys” – A movie review

0 Shares

When my friend Sarah who runs Fashionistar  fabrics said she really liked the movie “King of Boys” I was like, ok maybe it is worth seeing. I had not heard much about the movie but  since it was by Kemi Adetiba (whose talent I admire immensely) I had a feeling it would be good.  I also had no idea who she had cast in any roles apart from Sola Sobowale who is an amazing actress, but I was expectant.   My expectations were in no way cut short, in fact I was blown away! Here are some things I gleaned from that movie. Ps. Spoiler alert! Get […]

Honey by Waye’s Bee Co : Product Review

There is truly nothing as sweet as honey and when Omosede Imohe discovered there was a dearth of well packaged and unadulterated Nigerian honey in the market she decided to do some research. Her research led to the establishment of Waye’s Bee Co in 2018. Let’s hear more about her journey in her own words. Waye’s Bee Co. was established in 2018 to produce and package honey to international standards. The journey to Waye’s Bee Co. started when I discovered that our local honey in most cases could be considered just as good as or even better than foreign honey […]
