I am an African-American living in (very) small town Germany. I transplanted myself here a long time ago and haven’t found my way out of Europe, yet.
I cherish friendships from beginning to end and will never understand people who say they have too many friends and cannot add another. Yes, there are people who think that way and they make me sad.
I enjoy cuddling up with a cup of tea on a cold and rainy day. Actually, you can find me with a cup of tea on just about any day of the year. Tea soothes my soul. To the dismay of my waistline, I have developed a love for the art of high tea including the delicious scones, sandwiches and treats that go along with it.
I love music and words. I play the clarinet and am teaching myself to play the piano.
Cooking and eating wonderful food is a passion. I can get inspiration from just about any cookbook. My favorite cookbooks are ones that tell a bit about the dish and why the author has included it in the book or what they fancy about it. I think of those words when I am preparing the dish and then put my own words to it.
