Hello, Oh my! I missed this space so much. I missed blogging and hearing back from you. I missed you, I honestly did. I am so happy to be back here and doing what gladdens my heart.

October: Recipe and a bit of Inspiration

Happy October!!!

I am so excited it’s October already. Every year I get this feeling for several reasons. First, it’s my birth month. It’s also my father’s birthday today (1st of October). Today is also Independence day in Nigeria, my country and where I lived most of my life. In Canada, Thanksgiving day and Halloween is celebrated in October alongside series of other events. October is filled with several amazing occasions and I intend to make the most of it this year.
