Eya Pancake Rolls, Nigerian

Image
Nigerian pancake rolls with a tasty difference The first time I made pancakes with my old fry pan, I didn't know it can be improved upon. Then one day I tried  pancake rolls without sausages and named them vegetable pancake rolls, It felt like those were the best anyone can come up with.But, I was wrong, after mine, came Omalicha pancake rolls, quickly followed by Dinma reloaded pancake rolls and then pancake rolls and vegetable fillings by Ib, then again

Ebola Guideline, Share This Information Please

This is to remind everyone that by following the guideline from the center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization.

• The suspected reservoirs for Ebola are fruit bats.
• Transmission to humans is thought to originate from infected bats or primates that have become infected by bats.
• Undercooked infected bat and primate (bush) meat transmits the virus to humans.
• Human to human transmission is only achieved by physical contact with a person who is acutely and gravely ill from the Ebola virus or their body fluids.

• Transmission among humans is almost exclusively among caregiver family members or health care workers tending to the very ill.
• The virus is easily killed by contact with soap, bleach,
sunlight, or drying. A washing machine will kill the virus in clothing saturated with infected body fluids.
• A person can incubate the virus without symptoms for 2-21 days, the average being 5-8 days before becoming ill. THEY ARE NOT CONTAGIOUS until they are acutely ill.

Jollof Rice And Beans With Carrots

Image
Nigerian jollof rice with beans, carrots Nigerian jollof rice and beans is very filling. It fills you up so much so that you just keep drinking water the whole day without feeling hungry. It is very easy to cook and less expensive too. Every day is not christmas, this was cooked with only beef stock and crayfish, no meat or fish. The chicken and fish in the pics were just brought from the fridge, heated and added to garnish for serving. There is palm oil rice and beans too on the blog. You can also add beans when cooking Ghana's version of Jollof rice posted here by Celise. What I do not know and haven't tried is if beans can be added to Nigerian fried riceand coconut rice

Between ETISALAT And MTN Network, Sigh

MTN was my first browsing Network, initially it was fun, then it became slow, then, downloading and uploading images began to take like forever. I don't know if other bloggers experience that too but there is a kind of banging headache I get when Network is very slow.

When I need to download many images but can't because the first is taking too long, I know it can neither be my phone nor laptop, neither is it the borrowed Ipad, it definitely is the Network's fault.

I eventually got tired of MTN slow network and ported to ETISALAT.  Oh mehn, ETISALAT was fun. Before you say jack, multiple files download is complete. I enjoyed downloading recipes and other images, blogging became more fun. Blog reader's recipes and images started getting published as soon as they arrive:)

What Can I Do About Hubby's Stinginess And That Lady?

pls I have a challenge below. publish on ur blog. pls hide my identity, thnks. I have been married for a year now.
tried talking about my trust for him. i told him outrightly that he does/shows things that makes me doubt him and then i told him to EARN my trust for him. How do I trust him again?  1. I dont trust my husband at all. 2. A particular lady friend of his has been an issue btw d both of us in the past. I stumbled on messages from her to him/him to her. I asked and he said there's nothing, just raising hopes and flirting. i ignored all that. Last week, I used his phone to send a message and I stumbled into a msg from that same girl sending her account number. One of the things that attracted my husband to me is that I never disturbed him regularly for money. I was independent. 
I never saw it as a big deal but I felt at the same time that every man should be sensitive to his woman's needs. As we got married, I still never bothered him all d time for money but d few …

Insecurity In Nigeria, Who Is To Blame?

Hey guys, let's take some time out 2 deliberate on d issues of insecurity or (insurgency) in our dear country as it has now become a daily occurrence. Today, it is news of a bomb blast. Yesterday, it was a suicide bombing, tomorrow it may be an assassination and the day after, mass murder. 

Every day in Nigeria, the news seems to get from bad to worse, as the security situation deteriorates further and further. Whenever there’s a problem there’s always the cause but the case becomes a bigger problem when the cause is not just one or two but an accumulation of national problems. What are the remote and immediate causes of insecurity in Nigerian and how can the situation be resolved? Bad leadership, corruption, illiteracy and many more.

Nigerians have called for improved intelligence gathering, the aligning of military and political solutions, the need to de-radicalize the affected areas as well as to invest in research that will give more insight into the different aspects of Boko H…

My Husband Is Lying To Me At This Early Stage Of Our Marriage

Hello Eya,
I'm a married woman and have been married for about 9months now. There's this particular girl that came to me all in the name of friendship so that my hubby could assist her get roles in a movie.

 I have been assisting her get roles in movies produced by my husband after much pleading with him.

To avoid problems, he deleted her frm his bbm. Since then I have been asking if she called him to

Can You Really Change Someone?

We have all heard these things. Some of us are even currently dating men that we believe we will change. We are right now loving men that we believe “if I show him how strong my love is, if I just give him enough love, if I can just keep his eyes on the bright future we could have, he will stop being afraid, he will give up his single lifestyle, he will change." 

The news that your perfect man doesn’t ever want to get married or have children? The fact that he has a monster coke

I'm In Love With And Loved By A Divorcee, CONFUSED

I am a silent reader who has been visiting your blog for 2years now. And it has been an eye opener to married life even before venturing. 
Even scared of getting married because of so many bad and failed marriages but God will see me through.

Am dating this man, a divorcee with 3 kids for close to 2 years now and I have fallen completely in love with him regardless of his complicated life and I believe he is in love too. Whenever we are together I feel so happy and different (the feeling is natural). We rarely argue or quarrel.  Now he is very serious about settling down with me but am not certain this is what I want. Am scared and afraid. I have turned down his proposal about marriage before but he never gives up.
He is a very handsome, humble, caring, hardworking, very rich, romantic, very domesticated, funny, intelligent and a religious man who respects me and treats me like a queen. One of my problems are, he labelled his ex wife evil, wicked,not a good cook and she hated his family …

A Testimony By Dee

I was 16 years old in 2006 when I wrote my first Jamb and I scored 300 but didn’t gain admission into the university because my English was withheld in my Waec Result. The next year 2007 the English was released and this time I scored 270 in Jamb and I got admission to study Economics at the Niger Delta University in Bayelsa State Nigeria.
I spent all my four years in the university yet attended church only 3 times (God has forgiven me), Fast forward to 2011, I graduated with a second class lower (2:2), same year I started doing business (buying and selling of female and male items) and November 2011 I went for National Youth Service Corp and rounded up November 2012.
After my NYSC I prayed to God that I don’t want to be Jobless, that I needed a Job before it is November 2013 which will be exactly a year after NYSC. December 2012 I left Port Harcourt where my parents reside and travelled to my state  of origin to stay with my Elder sister for a while because I was so depressed and al…

I followed this recipe on WC calledjamaican sauce with white rice by Patsy. Mysaucehas a slight difference to it and I've given it a different name as there was so much hassle about the name she gave her beautiful meal. 

I have used extra virgin olive oil, tim plum tomatoe, red and white onion, spring onions, garlic, ginger, coriander leave, cabbage, red and green pepper, hot peppers, sweetcorn, peas, carrots, king prawns and beef.
I fried the beef and prawns andset aside. I also blended the tin tomatoes and hot peppers, cooked with bsy leaves and set aside.  In a fresh pot I heat some oil, add the sliced onion and garlic, added ginger and chopped carrots then I added the cooked tomatoe sauce. After 3 minutes i added some water as the sauce was too thick. Then i added the chopped cabbage,  kidney beans and sweetcorn. I seasoned with knor cubes, dried thyme and all purpose seasoning then I added the fried beef and prawn. I Added a

Marriage Plans With A Divorcee, Am I Being Too Cautious?

Hi, im a silent follower of this blog, I have an issue that I will like to share with the more Christian and mature members of this blog. 
I am currently in a relationship with a man who treats me very well,  and tells me how much he loves me all the time, iv even met his family and we have been dating for over a month. 

 Now he is a divorcee , with no kids, however I don't think I am in love with him. I keep obsessing over whether or not he really loves me cos of the effort he puts into making us work. But the presence of an ex wife,  with whom he does business, and numerous ladies , who keep calling him,  just makes me very cautious.

My Husband In A Rampage Mode, I'm So Confused, What Can I Do Now?

I have been married since 1981. I always refused my husband sex, last year he became tired of waiting, he had found out about some affairs, and he decided he supported me for 31 years , He was owed, its not that I did not want sex. I love sex. Its just as the last year has proved. He does not feel he owes anyone any thing in his life. He was forced to be the better man by me refusing keeping him in line. But the last 14 years he has hurt nine men very badly because he refuses to give up any more rights. 

5 in the last year, two on Saturday. He has become controlling, if its in his house it is his business, I was always taught if you are told even in your own house you are not invited or its none of your business you stepped out for a few hours. Saturday His father invited me to breakfast to talk about what has been happening with my husband. 

Two of his fathers friend forced him away with two unloaded weapons and I went with them. My husband tracked us down where we were eating and he d…

Make Shawarma At Home, In A Sandwich Toaster

Image
Shawarma treat

Shawarma has come to stay in Nigeria. It is so loved by
both children and Adults. I remember my girls in Boarding telling us that when we come on "The School's visiting day,"  "Shawarma" must be part of the menu. Their friends won't take rice or soft drinks, but, can't resist shawarma. I am too local a Naija breed, may be, that's why I am not  a fan. Sorry.

This Shawarma was made Courtesy Lahmow's Recipe. When I posted on Lunch Box Ideas For Busy Parents, I asked for Shawarma ideas, I wanted to be able to make my shawarma with the ingredients I like, and leave out the ones I do not like.  On the comment section, Lahmow explained how she makes her shawarma at home.  I got these ingredients, tried my best and decided to post it here so that kind  corrections can pour in. I plan on another "shawarma making journey" However, that

How to make Nigerian Pizza with Mayo and Garri

Image
My first and second attempts at pizza making were strictly by Moji's pizza posted on the blog. The kids can't get enough of this third attempt and the score according to them is 98%. I believe them cos kids cannot lie, these are even very blunt kids who do not know yet how to bend and paint to impress the listener.
What makes this attempt the best I ask myself. Well, I did some things differently, these added garri is what gives it the name Nigerian pizza. I used soya oil in place of olive oil. Holiday has started and there is no escape from cooking and baking what kids love. This morning, lunch boxes were packed late cos I slept late. When I looked at the time, it wasn't encouraging and what are they really going to do in school when exams are over. How to get them just keep me company at home, I promised to make pizza, unknown to me, the corn flour was thrown away while spring cleaning the kitchen.
I had already chopped and mixed all the ingredints before realizing there is…

Re: Strictly For Job Seekers And Employers 
Hello Aunty Eya, i just read your post on Job seekers, and honestly i must say i appreciate d heart u have to help Job seekers. 
But my advice for us all is if u cant find a job create a job.Start a businessBuild a source of income

I have been helping in my little way to teach us all how import items from China to Nigeria, resell and make gud profit but im yet to hear anyone say i have successfully imported this or that. At least Aunty Eya tried importing even of it didnt go well but at least she tried. 

I have a friend who made 75k in 3days selling imported wristwatches. There are lots of business to venture in all u need to do is stop looking and start seeing.

Husbands, Stop Doing These Things, Post By Eesah

Ok guys, we've talked about what women should stop doing to their husbands.... and even more
 Now to balance it since lots of husbands visit this blog as well.. What are those things husbands need to stop doing that hurt their darling wives....Wives this would interest u too..
Sometimes men need encouragement in their quest to step up and be the men God has called them to be. Sometimes they need information, and sometimes they need training. Sometimes they need a mentor, someone who will show them how to be godly men, how to love their wives.
Here are ONLY 40 ideas. Of course, not all of these items apply to all men. But perhaps something here will hit home for you.

1. Stop acting like the battle is won in pursuing and getting to know your wife. Have fun together, just like you used to do before you walked down the aisle.
2. If your wife is a stay-at-home mom, stop treating her like her work during the day is somehow less strenuous or less important than yours.
3. Stop coming home from …

Warning: Way To Avoid Being Raped/Gang Rape

A woman was taken by 5 men, who according to hospital and police reports, gang raped her before dumping her at a Bus stand! Unable to remember the events of the evening, tests later confirmed the repeat rapes along with traces of Rohypnol in her blood. ... Rohypnol, date rape drug is an essentially small sterilization pill. The drug is now being used by rapists at parties to rape AND sterilize their victims. All they have to do is drop it into the girl's drink. The girl can't remember a thing the next morning, of all that had taken place the night before. Rohypnol,which dissolves in drinks just as easily, is such that the victim doesn't conceive from the rape and the rapist needn't worry about having a paternity test identifying him months later.

The Drug's effects ARE NOT TEMPORARY - they are mostly PERMANENT. Any female that takes it might NEVER BE ABLE TO CONCEIVE. The weasels can get this drug from anyone who is in the
