This is my first write up and i was a bit confused about what to cook. I had to do this after work and therefore had to settle for something simple. I went through all my recipes and came across my Cheese Spag with chicken. I told my foto girl Nicki about it and she said ok,well until i said she was the one going to eat it. We had to go through the ingredients and she was cool until i told her i had to add raw eggs without cooking it..........
I was grinning at the other side of the telephone but i could see disgust on her face.
Getting ingredients was quite easy except the parmesan cheese, ok i got that from Koala (its a bit expensive)
Nicki arrived on time and we did a whip up.
Easy but i was pretty scared about she tasting...........Nicki was impressed(well thats wat she told me)
Well like i told her, "if it isnt good, just shut up and go home"
• Prep time: 10 minutes
• Cook time: 20 minutes
Be careful about the eggs, Ghanaians dont like to taste raw egg in food
• olive oil
• Diced chicken
• Chopped Garlic
• 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
• 1 pound spaghetti pasta ( I prefer the thin ones)
• Salt and black pepper to taste
1 Put a large pot of salted water on to boil
2 While the water is coming to a boil, heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add off the heat and put the Chicken and garlic into a large bowl
3 In a small bowl, beat the eggs and mix in about half of the cheese.
4 Once the water has reached a rolling boil, add the pasta, and cook, uncovered, at a rolling boil. When the pasta is a little firm, not mushy, use tongs to move it to the bowl with the Chicken and garlic.
5 Move the pasta from the pot to the bowl quickly, as you want the pasta to be hot. It's the heat of the pasta that will heat the eggs sufficiently to create a creamy sauce. Toss everything to combine, then add the beaten eggs with cheese and toss quickly to combine once more. Add salt to taste.
Serve at once with the rest of the parmesan and freshly ground black pepper and a glass of chilled zonkomi

i am super excited about this blog that my hands are itching with excitement. Its begining to look like i may have found something that interest me ............again! hehehe.
I have never been a "cooking" person and my family and friends would stamp that 100%, every body thinks i hate to cook, well i wouldnt blame them, after all i have never showed signs of liking the act.
I have an international tongue, oh i call my tongue international because it can distinquish the bad from the good INSTANTLY!
My dad taught me my first cooking skill: he taught me how to grind pepper and he did it with so much attention. My dad (Handsome dude he was) was a catcher for the women, i mean who wouldnt fall for that?
There are a few people who can throw me off board with cooking,my grandma and my mum Leslyn
My grandmas special dried fish and meat soup is a total knock out, there is something about that soup that drives me crazy, i never want to stop eating
My Mum Leslyn's "throw in" stew as she calls it, is a hit !, she cooks the stew with no attention, like she really doesnt care about it.
It's seems like the stew has to be cooked with a swag of "idontcaresm" and trust me when its done, as any Aburi Girls student would say :DONT GO THERE"
When it comes to dessert, my instincts work as fast as a super hero. People dont try a lot of desserts in Ghana but there are a few good places with nice and sweet desserts in Ghana
My sister in law makes the best cakes in Ghana............PERIOD ! ( there is no room for arguements on that) and my sister makes the best brownies in GH, if u doubt ,lets try yours
For me, food is much more important than just eating it. I think every good chef is a higly creative person and i adore them.
i have always said i would have to marry a man who can cook and i think i might have laid my hands on one, my Boyfriend is a really good cook. He makes everything out of nothing and has a very tasty tongue (well i hope it stays like that, you know men.......they can change :)
Sorry for my long talk but am a bit nervous about this blog but i would be taking you on a tasty ride.......just buckle up people.
Now am a Mukase Chic and I can cook :)
Am the lady with the fork and my BFF Frost aka Tyra...........dining.
