|Boiled Rice With Chicken Breast and vegetables|
In July 2012, when I decided to keep an online kitchen diary. I thought about my daughters. I felt like leaving something for my girls. Something like a guide kind
of. They always cook with me. The girls are going to be good in the kitchen by Gods grace. That's notwithstanding, I wanted a situation where they'll have variety their fingertips. I wanted the girls to have an Online Address where they can just click to get all Mummy's Recipes.
When I started writing my "online kitchen diary" I told them my aim for doing this and they were very happy. They were particularly excited that, what ever part of the world they'd settle, they'd still be able to relate to and have Nigerian Recipes with them. I wanted a situation where my girls will still be able to cook NAIJA Afang soup the way their Mommy does, cook egusi soup and enjoy foo foo without forgetting their Nigerian Roots.
I felt like, with an online kitchen Diary, my children will be able to pass on to their children, the Nigerian Recipes that grand-ma or Great Grand ma left them, *as the case may be.*
I am so happy that in less than a year, we have been able to document even more recipes of Nigerian food than I thought possible.
To the glory of God, this kitchen diary will serve as a Reference Book not only to my children, but to all Nigerian, African and even children from other parts of the world. #coversFace.
Mothers don't have to worry about preserving their Native foods anymore. All we have to do is post them to this blog and they are preserved.
Initially, my plan was to keep this blog private, to leave the settings on " Members Only" but, that would have been selfish. I am so thankful to God that I left my kitchen diary Public. When the workload of managing multiple blogs increased, I had to import my kitchen diary here. I think importing it here made "wives connection" even more fun.I am happy and grateful about the comments and encouragements from you guys. I have never regretted leaving this Diary public and by God's grace I won't regret it.
Right now, Nigerian Moms especially, can be rest assured that wherever their daughters settle in Life, they'd be able to cook Nigerian meals, by just looking at the Step By Step Cooking Pictures of Wives Connection. In future, we will be able to gather even more Nigerian Recipes here. Courtesy; Every Contributor who has, and is taking their time to take step by step pictures of their cooking and share here. God bless us all.
