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.

Cinnamon Persimmon Tea

So what are your plans this halloween? I fancied being Maleficent this year, but a visit to the chaotic aisles at the department stores left me besieged and a bit out of luck.  

I used to think of the Disney classic, Sleeping Beauty as being scary and dark, but in recent years, I have come to view it as a fascinating piece of art and rather perspicacious in so many ways. 

Maleficent’s spell in the form of an enchanting cinnamon tea with persimmon and pine nuts is the perfect warm treat for reigning in another year of Halloween fun. This recipe is simple to make, absolutely delicious, and a naturally refreshing alternative when you need something a little fancier than water, but still want to keep it nutritious.

Ghana: and a story of character

Growing up, my father was not like other fathers.  Other fathers usually had a fixed work day schedule.  My father was an entrepreneur, so he had a flexible schedule and sometimes traveled for work.  As a little girl, I remember going on a couple of his inland trips and being in awe at the raw beauty of my surroundings.  

Our trips were always memorable. Sometimes we would come across wild animals darting across the dirt road, and other times we would stop by the roadside just to take in the captivating sights, to buy a local piece of art, or a delicious fruit.  There was never a dull moment.
