Iconic Bakery: Here's some dishes you've never prepared - Chin-Chin, Kpof Kpof and Nigerian suya

Provided by Nnenna Onwukeme, Icon summer intern

As you may know I am from Nigeria, and being from Nigeria in a different country there are a number of things that I miss and food is one of them. Here are some of my favorite Nigerian foods and snacks, most of these ingredients can be found at a whole foods store or an African store. Enjoy.

Iconic Bakery: Care for an Icon Biscotti?

Viewers of this column understand I really like to dunk things I bake in coffee (or milk). And, in my opinion, biscotti was made for dunking.

After developing a hankering for this toast-like cookie with a long shape, I priced a box in the grocery and decided to make my own for lots less the cost. This assumption was correct. It’s inexpensive to make and one recipe produces lots more than the small box on the grocery shelf.

Introducing the Icon One-Fourth Amish Half-and-Half Milk Pie (sliced almonds, optional)

Some pie lovers call this Amish milk pie. Since the Icon never follows a pie recipe properly, we’ll call this the Icon One-Fourth Amish Half-and-Half Milk Pie.

That’s primarily because we cut out lots of the sugar. You’ll notice one-fourth in lots of places in the list of ingredients – thus the renamed pie. We'll get to the half-and-half shortly.

In fact, we cut out one complete cup of sugar and this pie was devoured in the same amount of time as any previous pie from the Icon’s oven. So, who needs all that sugar?
