Hi, I’m Chika and welcome to my food blog Cooking with Chika where I share simple and delicious recipes!

If you’ve been following me for some time, you’ll note that in December 2020, I changed my site name from ‘Borrowed Delights’ to ‘Cooking with Chika’.  Although I loved the name ‘Borrowed Delights’ for my recipe hub/food blog, I really wanted to give my site a more personal feel, hence a name change was needed.  Don’t worry, you’ll 100% still find the same simple and delicious recipes being shared with you here!

To me, there’s truly nothing greater than being able to share food with others – food is my love language! It’s how I shown my appreciation to others, say ‘thank you’ and offered my well wishes or condolenses.  I also love that many great memories in life are built around food – think about your last family gathering or night spent in with your friends (pre-Covid of course), I’m sure food was involved in one way or another.

It is therefore my desire that Cooking with Chika becomes your go-to source for finding and creating simple and delicious recipes to share with your family and friends, or even just to make for yourself!  Whether you consider yourself a novice cook or an advanced home cook, I hope you’ll find recipes on here that you will become your #1 go-to’s and favorites!  I also hope the ease and simplicity of the recipes I post are an encouragement to those that say to themselves “I can’t cook for the life of me” or “I absolutely cannot bake anything, because it never turns out right”.

As you go through my recipes, please let me know how they turn out for you, and please let me know of any recipes you want to see posted.   Remember, there’s no such thing as perfection in the kitchen, just trying new things and having fun!

I’m so happy and grateful to be able to share this peice of myself with you all!
