Ghana Jollof Rice

Jollof rice is a popular food enjoyed by Ghanaians, Nigerians, and other West Africans. It can be prepared in several ways; with meat or vegetables. Cooking styles range from simple to difficult depening on how experienced you are. The quickest and easiest method is to cook rice partly and add to sauce. Cover with foil and cook for 10 minutes or less. The most difficult method is adding uncooked rice to the sauce as this requires constantly checking and adding water to ensure rice doesn't burn and is cooked completely.

Osterlamm or Easter Lamb cake

For most of the world the Osterlamm is just a delicious treat but in Germany it has more importance for those who believe in Jesus. A lamb is sacrificed at Easter, but baked in commemoration of the resurrection, a cake in the shape of an Easter lamb. 
In the weeks preceding Easter, each bakery bakes and sells hundreds of these cakes.  Some are covered in powdered sugar, some a lemon glaze and some even cover them in chocolate , we like ours plain!
Our daughter loves to bake! So we let her bake this Easter Lamb cake from start to finish.

Lamb Hotpot

 This is a very delicious and healthy dish you can serve with rice, pasta or potatoes. It usually contains potatoes as its a one pot dish, but I prefer it without potatoes. If you wish to add potatoes, cut them in large chunks or cubes and toss them in with the vegetables. Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until well cooked before serving.
