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 dishes. Moving around the nation, I learned so much about cultural dishes, and really 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 truly grateful for this platform to share generations of love through FOOD. I’m excited you’re sharing it with me!
