Hello there, welcome to jesskitchen.
Sorry we have not updated in a while. Have you read our previous article,recipe for Mango cinnamon smoothie? If not, please do.
Now there is an interesting story about how i came up with this article. I did not plan of filming while cooking because there was no time to set up and all. plus i was super hungry.
This happened the day i wrote my last end of semester paper. I came back from school tired and hungry. it was getting late. No food around. So i decided to make something from the little foodstuff available. In the freezer i had gizzard and chicken. I had other vegetables and foodstuff. Tomatoes,onion,pepper,rice,garlic,ginger,oil and spices.
What can i make from these ingredients? i am tired of eating rice and stew/sauce. what else an i prepare? i was really craving ‘ampesi and abom‘
I decided to prepare assorted jollof. who gets tired of eating jollof rice? why not film it? because we do not have any jollof recipe on the blog yet.
