Chocolate Chip Cookie

People always rave over my chocolate chip cookies. I think tere are two key factors that make them so good...the fat in it is butter flavored shortening instead of butter or margarine, and the second factor is the cooking time....the secret for that is in the recipe.

The recipe calculation is for ONE cookie...the batch makes 5 dozen...or 60 cookies.

WARNING: It is hard to stop at one!!!!!!

Nsima

This is the traditional meal in Malawi, Africa. It is called ugali in Kenya


Very Good (1 rating)
Pasta salad

I made this in Malawi whenever I could get my hands on pasta (doesn't have to be just rotini) It lasted a long time and was a taste of 'home' for me. Can be lower in calories if you have access to splenda.
