Chicken in suya sauce

Are you like me? I always tend to discard those tiny wraps of suya spices mallams add in with your order? I never know that to do with them. Recently I decided to be a bit more creative, stop wasting food and figure out another way to use suya spice other than for suya. So I made what I shall name "Nigerian curry". Easy to make and tastes amazing! Give it a try.

#TGIF  It's the weekend again! Now what was your one go-to favourite chop when you were a kid? Me banana sandwich. Bread thickly spread with butter, topped with banana then sugar sprinkled on top.

#TGIF It's the weekend! I hope you all get to chop belle full. In case you are looking for ideas, here is a recipe for groundnut soup. My first time trying this and all I can say is, I'm in love. Added some okra to mine to jazz it up a bit. Enjoy!

The US Customs and Border control are  yet to learn how high value these snails are back at home. As their investigations are continuing into why one person would want so many African snails.  Of course for some serious peppered snails and pots of soup. Who knew Nigerian snails are some of the largest in the world!?

Biko! Does any tribe eat ugu (aka fluted pumpkin leaves) more than the Ibos? I hear Ibo people are the largest consumers of this leafy green, also known as ikong ubong by my people.  I decided to blend some into a smoothie the other day and drank it. Yes, it was dark green and totally on point. 

Recipe is on the blog: http://www.mybelledonfull.com/2014/06/16/ugu-mango-smoothie/ 

Below is what I found out about ugu leaves. It's been used for centuries to cure all kinds of ailments. It's known to;
 - be rich iron and vitamin C content, needed for the production of blood and maintaining a good health
 - be rich vitamin E content, which promotes a healthier skin and in turn slows down the aging of the skin
 - its high iron content which assists in the replenishment of lost blood; being used for treatment of anaemia, chronic fatigue and diabetes
 - protects the body against liver damage
 - helps boost the  immune system
 - curbs high blood cholesterol
 - boosts fertility
What have you heard about this leafy green? Do share!

Morning all! It's almost the weekend.

Have you ever thought about drinking your greens? I learned ugu (aka pumpkin leaves) also called ikong ubong (by my people) are consumed mostly by tribes in South Eastern Nigeria (mostly). For centuries this leaf has apparently been used to cure all kinds of ailments.
