    Chy, I’m so delighted cos my fiance’s friend requested I make him pepper soup which I had never made before. My fiancé asked if I could make it and I told him not to worry. then I went through my mails from you and followed your instructions and I made a very tasty pepper soup, that my fiancé’s friend kept requesting for more. you wouldn’t believe he and my fiancé ate the whole pot of the soup that I didn’t eat any because I was waiting for them to be filled before I have my share of it not knowing they will finish it up. I felt angry, hungry and happy. Yes, happiness ended my feelings because I was proud of my self that they really loved my pepper soup. Thanks to you chy may God increase your gift. You are talented when we talk of FOOD!
