A LITTLE ABOUT MY HOME COOKING RECIPES STORY
Hi there! Welcome to my website for home cooking recipes! I’m so glad to have you on this journey with me. A little about me: I’m a second-generation Nigerian, born in Houston, Texas. In the sixth grade, I moved to Snellville, Georgia, and lived in Georgia for 28 years. I met the love of life, got engaged, and moved to Rock Springs, Wyoming, for work because he is a college basketball coach. We lived in Wyoming for three years and have since moved to Maine, West Virginia, and now, New Mexico. Many sweet memories and 3 kids later, I have SO MUCH to share! Talk about an adventure!
Since I come from a deep-rooted pre-dominate Nigerian culture (Anambra and Ondo regions), I have always been very fond of culture and the spices that go along with developing recipes! It completely excites me! As a child, many of my memories are centered around my mom in the kitchen developing recipes for our huge family. I was always amazed at how she intricately shopped for the right ingredients and never wanted to be rushed in the process of making a meal. She always cooked from her heart.
I launched Home with Ayoola because I saw a need to share my love of MANY cultural and comfort food dishes with an added new healing component. Eating the right kind of dish can heal the heart, mind, and soul, which is what eating is all about. Moving around the nation, I learned so much about cultural dishes and what makes a meal have that layer of comfort that you want in rotation every week. As you thumb through my recipes and you will understand what I mean. Each recipe has a story behind it. In addition, make these recipes during the week; Moms, you’d be amazed! I’m genuinely grateful for this platform to share generations of love through FOOD. I’m excited you’re sharing it with me!
