  1. Finally, I have found these wonderful pies!  When I lived in Italy, I found a small Nigerian owned shop that sold home made fish rolls, and I would buy them by the dozens.  Now I can make them myself.  Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  2. I must say your video is very educative and interesting. But please work on the voice/commentary. Make it more lively, it sounded really creepy … nice work though, thanks

  3. You are the best. I have just stumbled on your recipes while seaching for drop dough nuts. Have you tried to record how much water you finally put in? I sometimes have my dough too soft or too strong. How many ml of water is ideal for this amount of flour? Thank you soo much for sharing these wonderful recipes.
