My Nigerian Spaghetti Bolognese By Ahdaisy Jayde

To make your ground meat yourself.
Cut the meat into cubes and put in the freezer for about 30 minutes or just enough for the sides of the meat to harden. Separate the meat cubes so that they don't freeze together.
When it is ready, put in your meat grinder (I used the one in my food processor), you can add some pepper and seasoning into the meat and continue grinding. And there you have it, your own homemade ground meat with ingredients you are sure of.
3 cups Olive oil or vegetable oil 1 medium Onion 1 clove Garlic 1kg Ground beef (You need a lot but I used little cos I am cutting down on my beef intake) 3 cups Chopped Fresh tomatoes (I had blended ones so I used it like that) 1 can Tomato paste (tin tomato) 2 teaspoons Curry 1 teaspoon Thyme 1 teaspoon Nutmeg 1 Bay leaf (little) A handful scent leaves (little) 2 cups Carrots (diced) Beef stock (I had chicken stock so I used it like that) 2 Knorr cubes (or any other one) 1 teaspoon fresh Pepper Salt to taste

HAPPY EASTER! An Easter Prayer

Happy EasterWishing you a Happy Easter. May this Easter season bring newness to your life.  Whatever thorn there is in your flesh that pricks at the wrong time and place, may it wither because he is risen. Whatever is there right now that was not from the beginning, whatever is not planted by the almighty, may it be uprooted.

If Only Men And Husbands Were Taught This Much

A Nigerian woman  (Photo credit: Wikipedia)Form when a girl starts growing up, she is taught to be respectful, well behaved and courteous. A girl is taught how to be hospitable, especially if she comes from a Christian family, Proverbs 31 is made her memory verse. She understands what is expected of a virtuous wife while her older and younger brothers are only taught to read their books, work hard and pass examinations.

In many families, especially my Nigerian families, the boys are served by their sisters in preparation for

Now I know My Case Is Different In Marriage

Hello Eya, I have been following your blog for about three months. Reading that blog makes me happy I don't know why. God is using that blog to bless our homes. I like the way women open up on your blog. People say things freely like they are talking with close family members. One reason I commend you for that blog is because many Nigerian wives want to talk but do not know where to go. We don't want third parties in our marriages. We need people like Marriage counsellors but don't know where to find them. I live in Lagos and do not know any office where I can just walk in and get marriage counselling except talk with my pastor. Church leaders are trying, but sometimes, it feels like meeting a professional or talking to and listening to other women's experiences. Your blog provides that atmosphere where we get to hear from different people with different views and learn something. I have learnt so much since I started visiting wives connected.
May your family continue t…

Nigerian Groundnut Soup With Ugu Vegetable

Nigerian groundnut soup with hot garri. Groundnut soup also known as peanut soup is mostly cooked by the Northerners and some parts of Southern Nigeria. If you can cook egusi soup with vegetable, then you already know how to cook this groundnut soup because same method will give you a wonderful, delicious pot of soup. It is a delicacy to those who know it. Some people cook this soup with slices of dried unripe paw paw. This unripe paw paw acts like kpomo in the soup.   It can be made thick or light depending on how one wants it, and
the quantity of water or vegetables added. Some great lovers of groundnut cook this without vegetables. The groundnut can be roasted a little or just ground raw and fresh.  A small portion of Locust beans (dadawa) can also be added if you like it's flavor.
This is the kind of soup that can make you eat more eba than planned, so, if you are a weight watcher, I beg you to eat only one of those foo foos in the picture. Without self control, the yummy soup ca…
