A Recipe For Success.......

A Recipe for success...One of the many reasons I love the Holidays are my family's great recipes that I get to eat. Some of my favorite family dishes are Grandma's Tater Tot Caserole, My Aunt Nancy's Sweet potatoe pie and the Detroit Focus Hope Peanut Butter Cookies. For those that don't know, Focus Hope Peanut Butter is the best ghetto govement provided peanut butter in the world. They also make a helluva' block of cheese that lasts for like a year.Sorry I got off the topic, but I love food and even better is food for the soul.Speaking of soul, I'm continuing to work on a great album that's a collection of soul, prog rock, dope bass lines, and something I can't quite describe yet, so stay tuned. But what I'm learning while making this album is that a good Slum Village album comes together when I work with smart people. Not necessarily book smart, but worldly smart. Musically smart, plenty of jokes and rich in soul. That's my recipe for a great album in the works.By the way, checkout my favorite Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe below.- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Is the recipe based on the Focus Hope Peanut Butter one?! Me and my family have been looking for YEARS for this recipe. My grandmother used to make these and they would fly out the cookie jar immediately.
