Chicken Tikka Masala

About a two years ago, my friend and I decided to start having cooking dates to learn new recipes and share our favorites with each other. She had a recipe for Tikka Masala that she had been wanting to try. We tested it out, and I loved it! It is absolutely packed with flavor, due to … More Chicken Tikka Masala

Jollof Rice

One of the very first Nigerian foods I tried was Jollof Rice. From the first bite I took I was in love. Jollof rice is sort of like Spanish rice, except it is made with tomato stew (Nigerian stew, of course), and has spices like curry, thyme, ginger and bay leaf. It is rich and … More Jollof Rice

I don’t want any of those fake recipes, … More Chinese Fried Rice
