Meet the Pie.


You know, I’ve always wanted to learn how to bake and I thank God for youtube finally and the people that post videos because from one of them, I was able to make my first meat-pie.  I’m not in school this year and I decided to take a plunge in it. Yes, I baked… and I baked a heartwarming, Nigerian snack, meat-pie. The first time I made these, I realized the time, energy and effort bakers devote to baking, it is priceless. Anyway, here are pictures of  baking my first meat pie.  Next time, I’ll make a video, maybe…
