Ahwoi and Adu-Gyamfi siblings unveil collective biography titled ‘The Children of House No. D13 South Suntresu Kumasi’

The Ahwoi and Adu-Gyamfi siblings have officially outdoored their collective biography titled ‘The Children of House No. D13 South Suntresu Kumasi’. The book was unveiled at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences in Accra with several business leaders and politicians in attendance.

The Children of House Number D13, South Suntresu, Kumasi, is a collective biography of the life stories of the eight children of Madam Maye Charlotte Hudson, also known as Esi Tutuwa but known to some people as Esi Nkwagye and to the people of South Suntresu, Kumasi as Mrs. Ahwoi.

The ‘Ahwois’ principally is the collective name of three brothers – Ato, Kwesi and Kwamena – who have played prominent roles in Ghana’s recent history, but the siblings also include five girls, Ama, Adoma, Efua, Naana and Sister Aggie, who also played their part in these thrilling stories in their own unique ways.

Reviewing the book, Ex-Chairperson of the National Media Commission (NMC), Nana Kwasi Gyan-Apenteng lauded efforts of the late Mrs. Ahwoi, nee Maye Charlotte Hudson,the person whose presence permeates the story. “Indeed, the matriarch is effectively the ninth subject of the eight children’s biographies,” he said.

The book achieves the purpose of showing the “remarkable togetherness and the mutual support system that enabled the children of House No. D13, South Suntresu, Kumasi, to overcome the many hurdles along their individual paths in life as being due to their mother, Madam Maye Charlotte Hudson (Mrs. Ahwoi).

To make such a collective recollection of personal histories work, all parties involved must be willing to take the effort seriously; equally crucial is the necessity to respect everyone’s personal history as meaningful, which this book has done.

It would be right to describe it as an exercise in literary democracy!

Not every book project results in a good book, but this one did because the project’s heart is a fantastic story. And at the center of that excellent story is the life of these eight people, who represent human development against all odds.

Dramatis personae in order of appearance- from the womb- Ato Ahwoi, Kwesi Ahwoi, Mrs. Ama Twum, Kwamena Ahwoi, Mrs. Ama Adoma Bartels-Kodwo, Mrs. Efua Bram-Larbi, Theodora Naana Adu Gyamfi and Mrs. Agnes Appiagyei-Dankah. Theodora Naana Adu-Gyamfi passed away at the age of 28 and so her role ends early except in passing references.

However, it is worth recalling that before she died, and in an act that exemplifies the major theme of this book, Naana secretely transferred all the money in her own bank account into that of her six-year-old niece, Abena Tutuwa Ahwoi, the daughter of her brother, Kwamena.

The structure of the narrative, which makes it possible to flow, is simply to follow the fortunes of these siblings sequentially in turn through the main phases of their development. The person whose presence permeates the story is the matriarch – Mrs. Ahwoi, nee Maye Charlotte Hudson.

There were readings of favorite excerpts from the book by Mrs. Agnes Appiagyei-Dankah (nee Adu- Gyamfi); Mrs. Efua Bram-Larbi (nee Ahwoi); Mrs. Ama Adoma Bartels-Kodwo (nee Ahwoi); Kwamena Ahwoi; Mrs. Ama Twum (nee Ahwoi); Kwesi Ahwoi; and Ato Ahwoi.

The event was chaired by Professor Dora Edu-Buandoh, Immediate past Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Coast (UCC); with the keynote address delivered by Professor Kwesi Botchwey, Former Minister of Finance; and the formal book launch performed by Dr. Joseph SIaw Agyepong, Executive Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies.

The book ‘The Children of House No. D13 South Suntresu Kumasi’ was published by DigiBooks Ghana Ltd.

How to Make Cookie Dough From Scratch

Published

Cookie Dough

Master the art of making cookie dough from scratch. This easy-to-follow recipe for dough can be prepared in just ten straightforward stages and can be used as a foundation for producing any of your favorite cookie dough recipes.

If you want your homemade cookie dough to turn out flawless every time, follow these tips and tricks from the pros.

Ingredients

All cookies are made using butter, sugar, eggs, and flour, but the procedure used to make the dough varies from recipe to recipe, even from a Cookie Dough Delivery.

You’ll discover how to scan an ingredient list to determine whether or not it yields a cookie you’ll like. Here are the ingredients to start:

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chip
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, very soft
  • 2 large eggs

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here are the step-by-step instructions for making cookie dough from scratch so that you may prepare them for any event.

1. Turn the Oven Temperature up to 375 Degrees

You may use a nonstick spray to prevent the cookies from sticking to the baking pan, or you can use a liner. Both parchment paper and silicone liners are quite effective in their respective roles.

2. The Two Sugars Should be Combined Well

It’s important to break up any pieces of brown sugar and thoroughly mix the two sugars. Dark brown sugar has a richer caramel flavor, while light brown sugar will make your cookies a little sweeter.

3. In Little Amounts, Mix the Melted Butter into the Sugar

It helps to combine the butter and sugar much more thoroughly.

4. Combine the Eggs One at a Time While Mixing

Eggs should be broken immediately into the bowl containing the butter and sugar mixture. After the eggs have been broken, use your spoon to give them a quick beating, swirling them into the butter and sugar.

5. Vanilla, Salt, and Baking Soda Should be Measured and Combined

Now is the time to thoroughly combine the batter. Make sure there are no leftover clumps and that the batter is uniform in color. Instead of adding the salt and baking soda to the flour, you may combine them in a separate dish with the flour.

6. Stir All of the Flour at Once

At this stage, you want to avoid over-mixing the batter to prevent the formation of an excessive amount of gluten. It would help if you stopped combining the ingredients when there is no longer any visible flour on the dough or in the bottom of the bowl.

7. Incorporate the Chocolate Chips

Put the chocolate chips into the mixture.

8. Scoop the Batter onto the Baking Sheet, Leaving About 5 Centimeters Between Each Dough Ball

Use a tablespoon to measure the dough and then roll it into slightly rounded balls roughly the size of ping-pong balls. You may make it bigger or smaller depending on your preferences!

9. Cook the Cookies for Nine to Eleven Minutes

Take them out when they appear puffed up when they have set around the edges, and when they are dry to the touch. On the baking sheet, you should let them cool down for a few minutes. They will eventually collapse in on themselves when the temperature drops.

10. Place the Cookies on a Cooling Rack

Proceed to bake the remaining cookies one batch at a time.
