YENIHSDELITES: FISH AND CHIPS WITH MUSHY PEAS AND AFRICAN STYLE GRAVY.

YENIHSDELITES: FISH AND CHIPS WITH MUSHY PEAS AND AFRICAN STYLE GRAVY.

It was a cook-anything-you-can-find-in-your-kitchen kinda day again. It had been snowing non-stop since the start of the week. UK was under the white attack my people. They said it was the aftermath of a dry, frigid air from Siberia and they named it ‘The Beast From The East’ and it really showed up and showed out. Mr Beast from the East brought some chilling friends along for the snowy ride…the rain, the wind, the cold, the White Walkers and Jon Snow…mscheeeew!!! Anywhooo, what I’m trying to say is, because of the snow, we were stuck at home with only some few food items here and there….frozen fish here…frozen peas there…so what do you do? I psyched myself and finally got out of bed, got ready and walked into the kitchen feeling like a lifesaver on Survival Island. I whipped out the ingredients and food items from the cupboards and freezer and before I knew it, this beauty was staring back at me, looking all yummy and ready to be eaten. Fried Fish(in batter and coated with cornflakes crumbs), using coconut oil and chips with mushy peas and gravy(black beans and chickpeas in shito peppered stew). That’s how this concoction came about last Wednesday....
YENIHSDELITES! HAPPY PANCAKE DAY.

YENIHSDELITES! HAPPY PANCAKE DAY.

HAPPY PANCAKE DAY! Almost every household is filled with the aromas of delicious pancakes. Whether it’s lemon drizzled, honey drizzled or cinnamon flavoured, our mouths are enjoying the deliciousness that only Pancake Day brings. So…what do you do when you’re trying to be healthy but the foodie in you still wants to partake in Shrove Tuesday or Fat Tuesday(Mardi Gras)? Oh well! I wanted to eat without feeling guilty so I came up a healthy option… Cauliflower and beetroot pancakes, topped with blueberries, raspberries and spicy wings and drizzled with honey and 82% Dark Chocolate. HAPPY YUMMY PANCAKE...

YENIH’S DELITES: A CAMEROON JELLOF(JOLLOF) FEAST.

On this particular day, I was craving Cameroon Jellof rice but I really didn’t feel like cooking. I just wanted to stay in bed and catch up on 24: Legacy(I’m still pissed the show got cancelled…mscheeew!) Anyway, back to the matter. So I told myself “I’ll just go in, prepare a quick jellof rice and roasted chicken and I’m out of the kitchen.” So how did I end up with a feast? How Sway? Anywhooo, by now, I should know I don’t just get in and out…I get in and feast out. So that’s how yours truly came up with all of these. What’s on the menu? 1.) Cameroon Jellof Rice. 2.)Plantain cups filled with sautéed mixed peppers, prawns and kidney beans. 3.) Spicy Roasted Chicken. 4.)Potato Salad. ✌✌✌✌...

SPOTLIGHT: YENIH’S DELITES.

I remember my friend once asked me ‘What does cooking mean to you?’ and I replied “Cooking is a conversation with the soul”. That instantly resonated with her. She later on told that it switched  her mindset to start seeing cooking as a time to connect with her soul rather than a chore. With time, she started noticing great improvements in her cooking( and it had nothing to do with the fancy Wok her partner gave her as present). I love food but more importantly, I love to cook. I’ve always been fascinated about the science behind cooking. How one can can instinctively and rightfully blend spices and food together to make a delicious meal. I love the colours, the textures but most importantly, the taste of food. Through cooking, I realised the best meals come from your gut feeling and not from recipes. I realised your soul needs to be fully awake when cooking.(I realised that’s when the best meals are made, whether freestyle or well-known recipes.) Whether from Bombay to Bafut, the culture behind cooking/food moves me. For over 4 years now, I’ve been documenting my cooking. I’ve created a special segment on this blog where I’ll be sharing pictures and stories of my experiences during the process. With time, I also plan to share recipes so we can all participate in the cooking experience. I hope to entertain, inspire through my love for cooking. Let’s have...
