Hello Eya,  I came across your blog while looking for remedy for my daughter's dark spots on her legs.

Recipe: How To Make Nigerian Chicken Pie

Image
Nigerian chicken pie is made the exact same way Nigerian meat pie is made, the only difference here is that chicken is used instead of beef. Very few ingredients are needed and it's easy to make. These pies are so delicious by the time I entered the room and came out, only one was seen lying on the foil and the girls said they just managed to leave that one for me to have a taste of my food, Lol.

Chicken pies are a complete meal that's so filling you won't want to chew anything else after eating, especially if they are as delicious as these ones...

INGREDIENTS:

5 cups flour500g butter ( I used baking margarine)1 chicken breast ( I bought already cooked one with Drumsticks takeaway rice, ate my rice and used the chicken breast for this pie so I didn't get to buy any chicken and there was no need for boiling before using.

Photos: Outraged mum slams celebrity-backed shampoo after it caused her nine-year-old daughter’s hair to completely FALL OUT

Image
Dear mothers, these celebs are paid to do their job of bringing buyers. Some of them do not even use the products they advertise, it's paid ads.  Read below via The Sun: Eliana Lawrence was left completely bald just before turning ten after reportedly using Wen Cleansing Conditioner to wash her hair three times.
Terrified she had cancer, the little girl begged her mum for a wig as a present for her tenth birthday and she was bullied so much she had to be home-schooled. Two years later and only some of Eliana’s hair has grown back, covering roughly 70 per cent of her scalp. After more than 20,000 similar complaints were made, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a safety warning for Wen products. See her below with photos showing her hair before the use of that hair product and after:

A hysterical toddler screaming for help after being left in a locked car – while his mother went clubbing with her work colleagues

Image
See him in the car? A mum locked her 2 year old son in the car and went clubbing with her work colleagues after mid night. Read how The Sun UK is reporting the incident: One angry man damaged the woman’s car resulting in her reporting him to the cops for vandalism. The two-year-old’s cries were heard by the group of passers-by in the early hours of Sunday morning. When they found the distraught child locked in the vehicle without any adult supervision they phoned the authorities. The police, who arrived at the scene shortly after, called a mechanic to bust the frightened

Devastated mum of boy fighting for life after car crash begs other children to wear seatbelts

Image
A devastated mum whose son is fighting for his life after a car crash is warning others about the importance of wearing a seatbelt. Louise Keenleyside's 14-year-old son Liam Owen wasn't wearing a belt when the car he was a passenger in smashed into the window of a beauty salon at around 60mph. The "bubbly" teenager slammed into the front seat, punctured his lung which filled with blood and had to be drained with scissors by paramedics while he was still awake. Doctors say the schoolboy, who was only going for a two-minute drive, is lucky to be alive and will walk with a limp for the rest of his life. The mum of four has chosen to release these images of him fighting for his life in hospital to remind people of the importance of wearing the safety device no matter how short the journey. Liam would have been celebrating his 15th birthday next week with friends but instead

Ivie Edobor, a Mother of three, took to her Facebook wall to accuse her husband, John Edobor, of attacking her after they went they separated ways following their failed marriage. She wrote  Dear friend, To shed more light on my ordeal, this is my story. Two years ago my husband kicked me out of his house along with my 3 daughters ages 9, 7 and 4. I was forced to move back to my father's house and struggled to provide for my 3 children as he completely neglected them and even took them of his medical insurance provided by his office Zenith Bank Plc. After much struggle, I finally got back on my feet. Got a great job, enrolled my kids in a new school and rented an apartment for my 3 kids and I. About Easter time this year he decides he wants to be part of my children's life again. I

XRAY DIAGNOSIS AND WHAT HAPPENED AFTER

Image
A Facebooker shared this wonderful testimony. Read below:
My grandmother once had persistent cough and wheezing for around 4-5 months. I put her on medication but the condition persisted. I got her blood tests done and changed the medicines, but there wasn’t any improvement. The x-ray of her chest didn’t reveal any problems with her lungs or bronchial system. She and others at home were disturbed by the constant hacking cough and I was in a quandary. We were praying about the matter regularly, but a healing didn’t come soon. Then one night the Lord showed me a dream. In the dream, I am examining my grandmother’s x-ray and this x-ray is different from the x-ray taken in the hospital. While examining the x-ray, certain parts of the lungs are focused upon and I can clearly visualize worms in the lungs. That was all I saw in the dream. When I woke up, I realized that I had missed the real cause of the cough. The Lord here was showing that the cough was “allergic” because of larvae of wor…

HOW TO MAKE NIGERIAN CHICKEN SHAWARMA

Image
Shawarma is an Arab meat preparation, where  mixed meats are placed ina spit to grill for as long as a whole day. With senegalese breads, mixture of meats and vegetables, we get the type sold in Nigeria.I have succeeded in making this chicken shawarma so so Nigerian by removing what I can't eat and just leaving what I know I'll love to taste and it's great. I would have loved to add green pepper but some of my girls don't like it and can;t stand much pepper. I thoroughly enjoyed it because it turned out exactly like that shawarma you buy once and keep returning every weekend for more. There is a shawarma recipe on the blog but it's not the exact same thing. That shawarma was made with Naan bread but here I used the real pitta bread for shawarma. That one was made with beef and chicken whereas this is just chicken shawarma. Very very easy to make.

The 3 Dispensations of power in Nigerian families: How power shifts

You berra rule with the end in mind people.

1. In the lifetime of most Nigerian family settings, there are 3 Dispensations of Power.

2. The 1st is the first 25 years in the life of the family  (father, mother, children) where power indisputably rest with the father.

3. The 2nd is after the kids have grown & started working when the power shifts to the mother.

4.l The 3rd is when the kids move out of the family house or start their own families when the power moves to the children.

5. We'll start from the 1st Dispensation. Total dominance of the father. He is the Lion of the Tribe of his House. The boss.

6. During this dispensation, the father rules with an iron fist. He barks orders & determines what does or does not happen.

7. The father often mettes out corporal punishment to the recalcitrant children. They grow to fear him more than they love him.

8. The father is the provider for the family & everyone is aware of that fact with all attendant consequences.

9. Then t…

SCHOOL BANS STUDENT FROM WEARING EXPENSIVE SCHOOL SHOES CLAIMING THEY LOOK LIKE TRAINERS

Image
Some private schools are very good at causing unnecessary for parents. Sometimes a parent spends so much on a durable school item so we don't keep buying the same thing every term. A mother is furious after her son was banned from wearing his new £48 Clarks school shoes because they look too much like trainers. Nicola Ingerfield, 43, forked out £400 this summer on new school uniforms for her two children, including the Harlem Spin shoes for 12-year-old Alfie. But the footwear fell foul of a strict new uniform policy at Mangotsfield School in Bristol, which has just converted into an academy. Teachers have given Alfie one week to buy a new pair - which Nicola says she cannot afford. "I can't believe they said they look more like trainers," she said. "The shoes are made from leather and look very smart.

A landlord, Mr. David Agberemole, has sent at least 5 tenants in his house in Uzea Community in Esan North East LGA of Edo State, packing for supporting APC.

Christiana said, “We don’t have any problem, just party differences, he told us he wanted everyone in the house to support PDP, because he is a member of the party, but i refused.

Chicken Stock Gravy with boiled rice

Image
This gravy is always a hit. I have received tons of feedback from readers who tried the recipe the first time I posted. I never disappoints. I'll try using other gravy flavours to compare in the future but for now, it's this roast meet gravy with chicken stock. I initially wanted to cook shredded chicken gravy but changed my mind when some people said they didn't want any chicken, had to boil my chicken with enough onion and salt, use the stock for this gravy before frying the chicken to serve separately. It helped me cook faster because I didn't have to start shredding any chicken. 
INGREDIENTS: Chicken stock about 5 cups. As much as you want.6 large carrots I small cabbage3 large bulbs OnionSalt to tastePepper just 1 teaspoon2 knorr gravy sachetsKnorr chicken cubes to boil the chickenSoya oil

A Chinese woman who fell off a cruise ship and drifted at sea for 38 hours before being rescued by fishermen has lived to tell the tale.

Image
The woman from Shanghai, known only by her surname Fan, leaned too far forward from a ship deck and fell overboard, according to Chinese media. She reportedly fell from the fourth deck, the approximate height of a seven-floor building. The 31-year-old survived the ordeal with only minor injuries, reports said. Ms Fan was on a five-day cruise on the Royal Caribbean from Shanghai to South Korea and Japan, according to reports. She reportedly had nothing to cling on to after she fell in the sea, and drifted for most of the time until she saw a fishing boat approaching. Her parents, who were allegedly on the cruise with her, did not realise she was missing until hours later.
