Pumpkin Pie recipe

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is around the corner! Growing up in Ghana we didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving nor did we have pumpkins laying around, and so it wasn’t until visiting the United States that I had my first taste of pumpkin pie.

The Chocolate Chip Cookie

Once upon a time, there was a mother and her two little children who loved spending time in the kitchen.  One day the two little children were hungry, so the mother decided to bake a chocolate chip cookie. 

She made a big batch of chocolate chip cookie dough. Some she scooped and stored in the freezer, the rest she made into a big chocolate chip cookie and put in the oven to bake.

Tasty Ghana Rock Buns

The wind carries an ever slight chill, a reminder that summer and her beautiful weather departs as Autumn has arrived. Late morning sunrise and rain drizzles from the sky, a subtle hint of Autumn slowly settling in for the next few months and breathing new life into old rhythm.

Last weekend, in my haste to enjoy a light wholesome snack and after a visit from a wonderful guest from Ghana, I found inspiration to make one of my old time favorites – the Ghanaian rock buns; also known as rock cakes or scones.

Everyone loves chocolate! As a little girl, I remember how I loved waking up to the smell of anything cocoa.  You see, I grew up in a beautiful harbor town in Tema, Ghana.

My parents’ house was in the center of the town in close proximity to the tranquil beaches which I will write about another time, and yes, the industrial area that happened to have a cocoa factory.
