How To Bake Biscuits Like My 8 Year Old

 Biscuits with fillings.

 I need to learn how to bake from my girls.  Only two of the four enjoy cooking. One likes to beg others to cook for her when she's hungry, the other would rather eat cereals for lunch than cook for herself. This 8 year old is one of those kitchen loving 2. She asked for biscuits, I directed her to crackers.
Said she wanted Danish cookies and I
told her to either take my crackers or bake her cookies herself. Next thing she picked up her cookbook and entered the kitchen.
In less than 20 minutes I was called to come turn on the oven and before I said JACK, these delicious cookies were staring at me.


  • 125 grams of butter
  • half cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 11/2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/4 cup custard powder

Nigerian Groundnut Soup With Ugu Vegetable

Nigerian groundnut soup with warm 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 can make you clear all three before realizing what you just did.
This soup can be served with any type of foo foo, semo, starch, not too soft amala, pounded yam etc.
Anyone who can cook the miyan taushe soup sent in by Deborah Bala two days back, should be able to cook this soup. There is no much difference.

It is best warmed again at night or stored in a freezer because, just like melon soup, it can go sour easily.
A trial will make you a fan of this soup, I promise.

1 Cup slightly roasted groundnut
1 small bunch fluted pumpkin (Ugu vegetable)
1 kg beef
3 cow skin (Kpomo)
2 medium sized smoked catfish
1/2 cup roughly ground crayfish
1 cup periwinkle (mfi) Optional
1 seasoning cube
1 pack stock fish ears
1 teaspoon pepper, you can add more
1 tablespoon palm oil
Salt to taste
Enough water or stock to cover the meat after steaming.

Before cooking groundnut soup:
Steam the beef with salt and onion until
