(1 kg) fresh, ripe tomatoes - 2 tablespoons Olive oil - 1/4 of Medium onion, very finely chopped - 2 Cloves garlic, finely minced - 1 ½ teaspoon paprika - 1 ½ teaspoon cumin - 1 ½ teaspoon salt (more for taste) - 1/2 teaspoon chili powder - 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro. OTHER: 4 large eggs

Tiny pancakes for tiny hedgehogs

Since hedgehogs are lactose intolerant they cannot have regular pancakes. But there’s another way to make pancakes for your quilled friend!

You will need:

  • one banana
  • two eggs (or one depending on the size of the banana)
  • olive oil
  • optional: other hedgehog safe treats like dried insects or fruit

One banana will give you quite a lot of pancakes, so you might want to use half a banana and one egg if you didn’t plan on eating some yourself.

Making the pancakes is really easy. Mash the banana with a fork (try to get it as mushy as possible) and add the eggs. Mix it well. If your batter is looking a bit too thick, add some water.
Heat up a bit of oil in your frying pan and add a spoonful of batter. Flip the pancake a couple of times till it’s done.
Let the pancakes cool for a bit (or put them in the fridge) and they’re ready for your hedgehog!
You can also add other fruit, dried insects or meat to your batter (as long as it’s safe for hedgehogs of course!) or sprinkle it on top of the pancakes while you’re making them.

For humans: this recipe is originally for humans so you can put some pancakes aside for yourself if you want (they are very tasty! I personally don’t like banana at all, but this is the only way I’ll eat it. They really taste like sweet pancakes).
I like to add a bit of cinnamon, apple and/or pear to them for the final touch. If you want more of a “filler” you can also add some oats. Enjoy!

I looked up african recipes and again it was mostly white people -_- not even white people that grew up in africa but white people that visited africa at some point. this guy labeled this one recipe as a west african dish and didnt even list what country or countries it came from… like yo different counties have different foods and even similar dishes usually have different names.

Slavery, Famine And The Politics Of Pie: What Civil War Recipes Reveal


On this June day in 1865, the last Confederate general surrendered to the Unionists, and the bloodiest war in the nation’s history officially came to an end. It was a war in which food played a powerful role in determining the outcome.

Cookbooks published during the Civil War era provide vivid, contrasting portraits of how the conflict affected diets and social lives in the North and the South. A house divided against itself, indeed: There was very little in common between the kitchens of the Yankee North and the Confederate South.
