I like it when fruits are in season because they are at their best. Mangoes are in season now, I'm so pleased because they are one of my favourite fruits. Good mangoes give me joy, lol.

Avocado pear was one fruit I didn't really like as a child, I used to wonder how people around me enjoyed it so much. For me, my relationship with it was that of tolerance, I ate it when I was forced to. But I have come to enjoy this power house of nutrients so much as an adult. Funny how our taste can change with age right? I don't pass up any opportunity to have this fruit. I eat it on its own, use it as spread on bread, eat it with rice, add it to smoothies and use it on my hair and skin.

Welcome to the month of February! What better way to start the new month than with a jollof rice recipe. For the uninitiated, jollof rice is a one pot rice dish made with fresh tomatoes, pureed tin tomatoes and some other ingredients we will see in the recipe. It is a very popular dish, it's so much a part of us that any party where jollof rice is not served is considered incomplete. Jollof rice even has a day dedicated to it, it's August 22nd.

Happy new year! I can't believe we are already sixteen days into the new year! I was telling a friend today that time flies when you are an adult. Lol. But seriously, have you noticed that as adults we just seem to blink and yet another Christmas is upon us? But as kids it used to take forever. I guess what I'm trying to say is that there is no time to waste.

Fried rice is one meal that is going to be cooked a lot this festive season. As a Nigerian, I know how much we love our fried rice. There is hardly any occasion in Nigeria that fried rice is not served.

Welcome to the month of December. The festive season is officially here, I must say, it's not too early to start planning your Christmas menu. With the way prices of things in the market have skyrocketed it is advisable to keep things simple. No need to break the bank to have a good celebration.
