Piyke: Was boiling an egg but sleep caught the better of me.....Woke up and the kitchen was filled with dense smoke, the electric burner was red hot and only a charred black mass was left in the pot which was also beginning to get disfigured!

It took days for the smell to totally leave the kitchen. So grateful to God that i didn't start a fire
hahaha!

underlinee: Well, I learnt how to cook everything I now know how to cook. The one I never took time to learn was how to fry egg.

The first day i fried egg, I couldnt remember if I had to use groundnut oil or just pour the egg into the pan like that. well you can guess the one i did. men! if you see the mosaic that resulted from the process my mum had to pour the oil unto the mess to undo my artwork grin

Sometime during my internship,i had dropped a half filled la casera bottle in d kitchen n my flatmate wanted 2 make stew...thinking its groundnut oil(d la casera label was off) he poured it in2 a pot. Thinking d oil was adulterated wt water, he went ahead 2 make d stew..lol! Then after adding maggi n seasoning. He called me 2 come c wats wrong wt d stew cos 'its tasting sugery n i dnt know y'!

Well..our flat bin no fit contain laff that evening. I felt bad sha n paid back by making another pot of stew. And made d same mistake(i had not removed d lacasera) but i realised mine on time n switched bottles!

When I was 10, my mom told me to make beans, have been seeing her adding curry and thyme to most of her cookings, so i decided to add it to the beans I was making. The taste was funny and my mom refused to eat from it.

kunletiwoo: Added a tin tomatoes to the “Egusi” soup I cooked while in school. So irritating to me after cooking. I was later told by a girl in ma lodge that it was because of the tomatoes. lol

I usually add fresh tomatoes and pepper to my egusi. Saw my Yoruba friend do so and liked it. But i make sure i fry it very well and also fry the egusi very dry.
