Ranch Sauce

I was planning to make Buffalo Cauliflower but couldn’t find any Dairy Free or Vegan Ranch Sauce to go with it. My son, JT is allergic to milk protein and since I’m still breastfeeding him, dairy is a no go area for me. Furthermore, after cutting out all dairy from my food, I have been feeling much better and so I decided to stay dairy free. Needless to say, as I couldn’t find any Dairy Free Ranch Sauce I decided to make my own which also happens to be Vegan. Continue reading “Ranch Sauce”

Buffalo Cauliflower

“We’re supporting the Eagles.” my husband, Baba says to me out of nowhere. Quickly, I put two and two together and remember the Super Bowl is this Sunday, which means he wants me to watch the game with him. Hmm, so I’m not into sports but I do enjoy watching anything with my husband, I like that he includes me in his hobbies. Anyway, I like seeing the new adverts aired during the game and maybe the half-time entertainment too. Seeing as I am going to be watching the Super Bowl, I decided to put together some snacks. How about some Buffalo Cauliflower! Continue reading “Buffalo Cauliflower”

Take a ‘Pic and Eat’

When you make or get served nice looking food, don’t you just want to take a picture before eating the food? I do! Yes, I am one of those people who stops to take a picture of my food before eating it. I want to remember and go back to that good memory even chance I get!

I love eating and also love cooking, in fact my love for cooking was born out of my love for eating. The recipes I create are influenced by my upbringing, you see I was born in Nigeria where I grew up, moved to UK when I was a teenager and then relocated to the States when I got married. My recipes can therefore best be described as a fusion of American, British and Nigerian cooking.

As I started getting older and wiser :-), I started taking my health more seriously. This meant paying attention to the ingredients used, the way it was cooked and how it was eaten. I also found myself sharing recipes with others to also encourage them to be healthy and what better way to share it than making it easily accessible online for the world!  My passion for being healthy and sharing healthy recipes is the reason for creating Pic and Eat.
