Remembering MLK

Martin Luther King Jr

January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs.

King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in 1957, serving as its first president. With the SCLC, King led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia, and helped organize the 1963 nonviolent protests in Birmingham, Alabama. King also helped to organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolent resistance. In 1965, he helped to organize the Selma to Montgomery marches, and the following year he and SCLC took the movement north to Chicago to work on segregated housing. In the final years of his life, King expanded his focus to include opposition towards poverty and the Vietnam War, alienating many of his liberal allies with a 1967 speech titled “Beyond Vietnam“.

In 1968, King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., to be called the Poor People’s Campaign, when he wasassassinated on April 4 in Memphis, Tennessee. His death was followed by riots in many U.S. cities.

King was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and theCongressional Gold MedalMartin Luther King Jr. Day was established as a holiday in numerous cities and states beginning in 1971, and as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986.Hundreds of streets in the U.S. have been renamed in his honor, and a county in Washington State was also renamed for him. The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial on theNational Mall in Washington, D.C., was dedicated in 2011

I create these cool cookie favors to honor a man who dedicated his life fighting for the equality of all people. 

Happy Happy Burfday MLK Jr.

MLK Cookie Favor Gift Box

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE WHAT I DO. The things you can create with food & dessert are ENDLESS. You can evoke feelings of deep satisfaction to nostalgia. I remember when I was younger and I got to watch the MLK I Have A Dream Speech on television on some Black History Month special. Although he had died before I was born I can still remember him talking about  EQUALITY & LOVE. The way he spoke and the passion in his voice was memorable. I created these cookie favors in his honor.

As a NATURALISTA I decided to create these cookies of sisters rocking natural hair styles. I have 100’s of cutter and each cutter can be used in more than 1 way. I actually can customize cookies. That may be 1 of my super powers. LOL.

So I went a step further and created these natural cookies with sisters rocking loc’s. This has gotten so many rave reviews. It just confirms that I am in the arena I am supposed to be in. When I am creating these I am in a ZONE. Time flies by and I realize that I haven’t eaten but not even hunger pains can stop my creative juices from flowing. I take PRIDE in my heritage and what I do. BCD01 (2)

 

 

 

Chocolate WHAT??????

Chocolate Banana Pudding

I am a HUGE fan of CHOCOLATE and a HUGE fan of Banana Pudding. So I sort after a pudding recipe. FROM SCRATCH… Since becoming a foodie I’ve cut down on the boxed food I eat. So I had to also make the wafer cookies from scratch. Besides there were no places to purchase chocolate wafer cookies….NONE..Trust me I searched.

Chocolate Wafer Cookies & Chocolate Banana Pudding

This dessert is COMPLETELY made from scratch unlike the traditional Banana Pudding where you use Nilla Wafers from the box. Maybe I will make the Nilla Wafers from scratch next time..Ummmm. Something to think about
