end Of an Era

Hello peeps!

The time has come, to say goodbye to Charlie’s world!

many of you have followed me since the start, when I was a recent high school student and were about to take that big leap and move across the continent and stand on my own two feet for the first time, thousands of miles from my home and my family. I now have a masters degree in my hands and I’m about to begin a new chapter of my life. I have had the most wonderful readers, who have cheered me on as i struggled in my studies and in doubt.

The end of charlie’s world however do not mean the end of me in the blogosphere. I have set up a new blog and a new start, something that will suit me better as the person i has grown into in these past couple of years, so come on over to : https://charlieskitchenstories.wordpress.com

With Love

Hello 2017! how did that happened. this year has just flown by, it has passed in the blink of an eye, it has been a year that has gone up and down, with happiness and heartache, love and food. A lot of food. i have gotten a lot of new readers who comes and visit me here at charlie’s world.

2017, January, lets do something half healthy shall we? Kale and roasted sweet potato salad. A  scrumptious hot winter salad. The perfect side dish, or a fast mid week dinner or what about a starter on a Saturday night, with a glass of wine.
