    Hi, your recipes are mouth watering. I will definitely try them out soon. Am in my early pregnancy stage so am really not eating. So watch out for feedbacks and pics when I start eating as I love to cook. Are there any food recipe u can share that boost appetite?.

      Congrats on the baby :)Don't worry about boosting your appetite now, you would see how fast your appetite will come back after the first trimester, but you can also try ripe pawpaw(that's my go-to fruit when pregnant). I'll be expecting the feedbacks and pics. Wishing you a safe delivery too 🙂

      Welcome to the website hun.To get this shape, all you need is a deep round bowl. Press down the rice and let it stay for few seconds to get the shape of the bowl, then turn over unto a flat plate. That's all dearie 🙂

    I'm not great at cooking, but looking at this, I'm sold. My cooking is either to salty or under salt, and I'm always burning my cooking as well. I'm still trying to learn to cook and stop burning the boiled eggs…Thanks for a great article.

    Hamzat Moyosore! Woooow this great ma, thumbs up for You. Ma you didn't give me feedback on cocktail n chap man. Thnks.

      Hi Hamzat, I've been busy with work, as for the chapman and cocktail. Cocktail is a drink made with alcohol and fruit juice. Chapman is the Nigerian cocktail, but if your customer are requesting for other type of cocktails, you can do a google search for easy cocktail recipes and choose one that you can make. Try it using a small quantity and then you'll know the measurement to use for 100 people or more.
