My Review: I enjoyed the stories in this book.....and the recipes!! Can see myself having a bowl of coconut..shredded...chocolate syrup and a few almonds! A Mounds?? Who cares...it takes care of that craving!
There is a lot of healing in laughter! Add in tears and of course the main ingredient...Prayer! What great messages! Karen is a girl after my own heart with Chocolate!! YUM!
There are some good chuckles...loved in Chapter 10 how her boyfriend asked her "who are you?" Great descriptions. You even find out about Aunt Cora...KFC indeed!
Each chapter has Sweet Secrets and Food for thought! Throughout all lean on God!
I recommend this enlightening book and delightful book filled real stories!
