CREPE CAKE RECIPE



Guys, you can't go wrong with this crepe cake. There is something about chocolate that makes taste buds jump for joy. At my church last week, there was chocolate covered ice cream for everyone. When I saw the way the young and old munched the chocolate, I concluded that chocolate is a crowd pleaser.

HERE'S WHAT'S UP: WE WENT TO THE MINNESOTA ZOO



Last week, my family and I went to the zoo. It was a day of firsts. I saw a bear for the first time! I also saw leopards for the very first time! And wait for this... I saw a tiger! But the tiger was asleep and so we didn't see his/her wild face.

The trip was part of the end of year events for girl number 1's school. The school chose the zoo as a venue so families could have a great time together. We took about 356 pictures (okay, hyberbole). But we took so many pictures and I've gone through a painful (and sweet) process of selecting them. If you enjoy pictures as much as I do then read on.

A COOL MORNING GONE SOUR



It is a cool morning. I wake up and tiptoe downstairs being careful not to wake up my daughters who are still in bed. I get to the living room and sit for a few minutes to have my routine morning meditation. Thereafter, I don't feel the needed rush of adrenaline to go make myself a cup of green tea. So I just lie on the couch instead to enjoy the serenity of the moment. 

THE MOST DELICIOUS BANANA BREAD

These days, I'm not even bothered when my bananas get all ripe and mushy. That gives me the perfect excuse to make the most delicious banana bread. There shall be no more waste in the land. The mushier the bananas, the bananier the bread.

A LESSON FROM MY ALARM CLOCK

The other night I settled down in my couch to rest after a busy day. As I grabbed my phone to take a sneak peek into social media, the alarm clock in my bed room started alarming. This alarm clock normally starts alarming at a particular time in the night and till date I haven't figured out how to stop it from alarming at will.

I chose to ignore the annoying beeping of the clock. The more I tried to ignore it, the more I felt disturbed by it. I didn't want to take a trip all the way to my bed room to turn it off because I was tired and all I wanted to do was be a couch potato.

HOW TO MAKE DELICIOUS CORNCHAFF

I grew up eating this deliciousness called Corn Chaff. My friends, this is the most wonderful way to eat corn and beans. It is creamy, flavourful and a party in your mouth. Corn Chaff, otherwise known as Corn and Beans Porridge is a foodie marriage of corn and beans that is popularly eaten in Cameroon. In Nigeria, something similar called Adalu is eaten.

6 REASONS CAMEROONIANS SHOULD STOP DRINKING

alcohol in cameroon


For many years, I have watched my "contri pipo" drink their destinies away and this is sad. They even have love names for alcohol such as, "shark" and "one man". If they only ended at "one man" (one bottle of beer), it would have been better. Unfortunately, one man quickly becomes six men, messed-with-urine pants (ewww!), a nap in the gutters and having to soothe disgruntled partners.

Cameroon is one the highest alcohol-consuming countries in the world! This is confirmed by a Global Status Report by the World Health Organisation. When Cameroonians are happy, they drink. When they are sad, they drink. When they eat, they drink! And no matter how much the price of a bottle goes up, their love for alcohol never goes down.

A lot of problems in Cameroon are tied to the bottle. Here are six reasons why Cameroonians should stop drinking:

HERE'S WHAT'S UP: COOKING AND MORE COOKING!



Let me just start by saying here that I am deeply 'addicted' to playing tennis. I played it the second time in three weeks yesterday. What kind of 'addiction' is that???

THE STRUGGLE TO FAST



Two days ago I had a sudden urge to fast and pray concerning an issue. It was in the middle of the day and when I woke up that morning, I had no plans to take a fast. Then I felt a sudden strong conviction that I should eat nothing  till the next morning so I will be better focused on the issue and pray. 
First, I was happy about it and I longed for the tremendous power felt in the presence of God during prayers and fasting. I also thought of this Biblical verse, "this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting" Matthew 17: 21. I was convinced that I needed to fast.

THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS

Hello people! This is my first style post. Drum rolls, please. It is about this cute mini black dress I wore last week to my niece's graduation. I love the way it made me look like a nyong geh and not a mami pikin. So I thought it would be nice to share the details with you.
