My guilt: My own problem is, i just don't feel like making or eating breakfast if its not a weekend morning and/or its not for brunch. I want to go hard or go home,

Sometimes I think as a child we ate big portions of food. I guess that created a great immune system but i definitely eat less now. Plus in Cameroon, children are always on the move so we stay in shape regardless. Here, not so much. I remember days when the menu was crepes and we had like 5 each for breakfast or super, with milk. Now its like 2 and i'm done. This was the first time i'd actually made crepes myself.
These crepes were made with 100% whole wheat flour, and it tasted as good as regular flour. There goes my new life change.
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons of butter
- 1 cup of whole wheat flour
- 2 pinches of salt
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- Half a coup of evaporated milk

Dear followers ( and viewers),
I hope you all are fine, eating well, nurturing your bodies, drinking water and conditioning with exercise :). i tried to research a way to email you all at the same time and i couldn't find one. If anyone knows about that function on blogger, please let me know. Thank you guys for your support and constant queries. It is much appreciated.
I do apologize for the inconsistency in my postings these past few months. I have been in the process of major life changes; moving, transitioning from the student life to the professional world and most of all geographical changes. Not right now, but things will stabilize here soon and i would not be as scarce as i have been.
I recently moved from a tiny city to a huge city and i love it here. My skin is glowing. Entering a new space, new energy, new cell phone number. Makes you feel like no condition and no status is permanent. So many things can change right before your eyes.
Attached is a photo of the last plate my mom made before she returned to Cameroon. I won't make a post about it. It is dedicated to your guys. BISOUS!

I do that instantly, so follow me there. Twitter is your go to for new post and tips and tricks, it notifies you quickly follow @CameroonCuisine

Day 1: 3 people dining
Sese Plantains: This is a typical Cameroonian dish, made with unripe or semi ripe plantains. Mine are unripe, made with cow skin and smoked fish. Its a really easy process, but i'd like to blog the recipe when i make the dish on its own.
Fresh garden veggies stir fry with chicken breast: These days, i feel like i cannot make a meal without a side of veggies, that must be a good thing.
Aged chicken: Its almost like a delicacy, its sold in the Asian super market where i live. This plate is steamed in spices and over broiled on a tray to reduce excess fat. Its really tasty and healthy, and the spicier the better. ;)
Tomato pepper sauce: Spicy enough to be a pepper sauce but also not too spicy that it could be used as a sauce to go with the rice. the green leaf is a bay leaf. ;)
The rice: The stock from the steamed chicken was used to boil the rice so it could be eaten as is.
My Plate :)
