Hospital List For Delivery In Nigeria

Helloo Aunty Eya and WC, I discovered this blog on Google while searching for recipes of Nigerian soups and have since become a follower. I need a little help. I am a first time mom in my third trimester. My hospital is a private one maybe that's why I haven't been given a must have delivery list for pregnant mothers.

I asked my midwife and Doctor, they all teel mke the same thing, to come along with my personal effects and items I will need without listing them out. I'm planning to

How To Cook Frozen Unripe Plantain

Frozen plantain in a pot of water
 We eat lots of unripe plantain in my family, though I love the fairly ripe ones, can't eat much cos of the sugar content. To eat plantain in a more nutritious healthy way, we make plantain porridge or boil and eat with beans porridge or egg sauce. Those mature unripe plantains do not last for even a week before they turn ripe and this happens so fast that you either end up cooking plantain daily or look for who to give them to.

Once I tried preserving by freezing and it worked. Since then, no more wastage and I think this is good for diabetic and those who eat lots of plantain. Freezing changes the plantain skin colour but doesn't affect inside and the taste remains the same.

Nigerian Uziza Okro soup

A plate of okro soup to be served with Soft yellow microwaved garri.

 This okro soup is actually the third or fourth on the blog but they are all cooked differently. Chubby Ella posted Okro soup cooked without meat . There is a post on okro soup with ewedu leaves cooked diffently from the Yoruba ewedu soup. The okro with ewedu post has detailed step by step cooking pictures. I never liked okro until I started cooking it myself. The recipes on this blog are good even for thosen who don't like the okro vegetable. 

This soup was stored in the freezer, after some days, was  brought out, warmed and frozen snails were cooked crunchy, chopped and added. The taste was extremely yummy before freezing and just wow after the addition of snails. Why I forget the camera while adding those seasoned crunchy snails and even serving with microwaved eba is what I don't know. 

Talking about microwaved eba, incase you haven't tried it, then you have not started enjoying good eba. After making garri with hot water, which now becomes eba, there is even a post showing how to make eba from garri powder. Place already made eba in the microwaves for some seconds or minutes, bring it out and serve, Ooh lalala there will be no remainder. When eba is microwaved, it feels even more fluffy than the one I posted on this draw soup post.

A little ground ogbono was added to this soup. A lot of people do not add onion to their okro soups because they believe onion weakens the slimy nature of okra but I love the aroma and taste onion adds to okro soups. Tastes completely different from okro cooked without onion and mine still turns out very drawy even when ogbono is

My Six month Old Lacks Head Control

Please could you post my question in your blog so anyone that's had a similar experience can comment.
My daughter is currently six months old and she can't hold her head yet. our pediatrician directed us to a physiotherapist but the exercises we have been doing haven't changed things much. she's rolling over and meeting all her other mile stones except the head control which she can't hold for more than five seconds and when she does it tilts to the side though she can

Genotype Notwithstanding, A Break Up Not An Option For Us

Good morning Mrs Eya, I read some stories on ur blog. Pls I need your help my fiancee and I are both AS, our wedding is scheduled for November this year. I read about the CVS test on your blog, pls can you enlighten more about the test cos we are both interested as a break up is not an option for us here. Thanks for your help and we are eagerly awaiting your reply.


Hi, your wedding is scheduled for November, meaning you still have a chance but you say a break up is not an option? Honestly, I think it's better to break up now than live in pain and fear. What happens when...

Love alone is not enough when it concerns sickle cell kids. I know there is nothing God cannot do for you and that's why he allowed Science to discover these things, so, a stitch in time can save nine. The stress from kids who are say frequently sick  and all is enough to shake the very foundations of any marriage. The love you confess for your fiance, is it enough to take you through the storms? This is an avoidable storm by God's grace. It is stress waiting to happen except God intervenes and gives you all AA kids or you decide not to have children. The test you mentioned, is it the one where a sickle cell unborn baby is aborted before delivery date. I like to ask this question ... How many can/will you abort?

When you say a break up is not an option, is she pregnant?

If you truly love your fiance, if she is not pregnant, why not set her free from this thing waiting to happen? The test, is done abroad, is your wife-to-be going to have all her babies abroad? The decision rests on you two. 

My advise is that you both sit down and look at it again. Are you sure this love will see you through just incase?

Unripe Banana Meal For My Baby

A serving of soft unripe banana meal for babies
Babies love unripe banana pudding. While crackingn our heads on what to start with when introducing them to solid food, THIS is one of the best. Cooked with enough crayfish. Ikokore babana is cooked just like wives connection step by step ekpang or the normal water yam ikokore. It can be served adults too and I love it.

This meal can be prepared for the whole family with other sources of protein but when cooking for these little ones, crayfish alone is just ok. Cooked without pepper for now.

Ingredients For My Made In Nigeria Beef Burger And Hot Dog

A simple burger being prepared without cheese cos the eater does not like cheese
 Like I promised earlier today to post ingredients for my Naija Burgers and very delicious Super Hot dog. Not really mine cos I don't eat but the kids love them and make by themselves. Was preparing to post this evening without pictures when I saw one of the girls struggling in the kitchen to make one for herself. I had to get the camera.
For how to make this beef burger, there is nothing much, it's just getting the veggies ready, your beef, chicken, lamb, ham or whatever meat you want to use grilled, your bun warmed to soften.

How To Make Nigerian Pepper Sauce For Storing

Nigerian pepper sauce packed in plastic containers for storing in the refrigerator.
 Nigerian pepper sauce is very easy to make and can keep for months. Before now, I tried to store fresh pepper by freezing, wrapping in newspaper, wrapping in leaves and all but nothing worked because after a few days, the perishable pepper begins to rot, even if kept in the fridge, and, if you love to cook with fresh pepper then you have to be shopping every week. Ever since I tried the pepper sauce recipe and it worked, I haven't tried any other method of preserving fresh pepper and this is so economical. Buying in baskets is cheaper, can only be enjoyed if you know how to successfully preserve the pepper. Drying is also good but then it's no longer fresh pepper.

After I published the step by step post on grilled fish and chicken, with pictures of my grilled chicken sauce, I started to receive a lot of mails asking how to make that pepper sauce. Then decided to take pics yesterday while making another cause the last one kept for over a month. Here are the pics. The pepper had already been pounded before I remembered my kitchen camera, so, I'll just list the ingredients with the cooking pics.
