I discovered the film in April while in Cambodia working alongside rescued women… Continue reading View the Film; Share the Love
Blessings to you in 2013! I spent most of New Year’s Day in the kitchen, melding together the traditional dishes of black-eyed peas and cornbread and recalling so many blessings from 2012. I also added a dish to the New Year’s Day menu, black-eyed pea fritters (called Akara or Accara in Africa) with red pepper… Continue reading Blessings for 2013!
