Look at that gorgeous steam, the stew is still bubbling away in the earthen pot, few minutes after taking it off the stove.

Cowfoot Peppersoup

I certainly can't be the only one who thinks up things at odd hours, and I suddenly become restless until I execute it.

Bini Owo Soup

When I shared the recipe for Owho Soup the Urhobo version, a facebook asked if I had tried out the Bini version. I told her I hadn't and I would love to. She sent me a couple of video links. And it was quite intriguing. The cooking method is different from that of the Urohobos.… Continue reading Bini Owo Soup
