How To Bake Biscuits Like My 8 Year Old

I need to learn how to bake from my girls.  Only two of the four enjoy cooking. One likes to beg others to cook for her when she's hungry, the other would rather eat cereals for lunch than cook for herself. This 8 year old is one of those kitchen loving 2. She asked for biscuits, I directed her to crackers.
Said she wanted Danish cookies and I
told her to either take my crackers or bake her cookies herself. Next thing she picked up her cookbook and entered the kitchen.
In less than 20 minutes I was called to come turn on the oven and before I said JACK, these delicious cookies were staring at me.

How to use three different vegetables, ugu, green and waterleaf in one soup

This delicious meal just happened because it wasn't what I planned to cook. Communication problems between James and I led to my cooking this. James was asked to go get me water leaf, my plan was to cook ugu stew with the water leaf. Because he understands Hausa while I communicate in English, he went to the market and came back with green amaranth, I had no choice than to cook just amaranth and ugu without water leaf.  However, Th…
