Personalised recipe books.

Intro to the creation of the books.

If your family is like my family, then you like to eat some of grandma’s cooking. However, grandma cannot receive phone calls since WI-FI/telephone calls do not connect with heaven. Now you must phone a niece or aunt or someone that you think will have it to make it. In the end you are so tired of searching that you dream about that favourite recipe, try to make it but something is missing – you cannot figure out what.

In my family, I am the go-to aunt, sister and cousin who have everything. Then someone will hint that I must make it so, I thought no way – and who will wash the dishes afterwards, right?

So, to get this problem out of the way, I created a recipe book for all the grandchildren in the family. This has escalated to my sisters, sisters-in-law, stepchildren, etc. Even the grandsons want a book. My son loves cooking and now and then I will get a message. Please mum send me that recipe – you know, the one I liked so much.

Sounds familiar?

Here is my very first attempt at my sister’s daughter, Kaylan. What do you give a young woman that turns 16? A recipe book, of course. And it did not cost me an arm and leg.

Just like grandma, she is crazy about purple. Hence, purple will it be with grandma’s favourite and well-known recipes she can enjoy with her family one day. Or, if she is single, create a dish from the book and invite me for a feast. Then she can sit with the dishes. Clever.

I have added it into a sleeve binder for two reasons: It is neat and tidy and accidental spillage can be removed, and two she can add more recipes as time passes.

Here is the flipbook of the book. Let me know your thoughts. If interested, contact me for your very own personalised recipe book or gift. No one else will have one like this.

Pricing will differ on pages and what you want in the book. I can arrange printing or will send it to you in PDF format for your own printing choices. The book belongs to you. I have no copyright for it. 

This specific one took me two days to create and has 29 pages. Costs with printing and binder with sleeves are R300, excluding Vat and courier costs. South Africa only.

Depending on the pages/ recipes you want to add, I will forward a separate quote.

To my overseas friends, it will be sent to you in PDF format via a Google Drive link.

The more pages you want will increase the price. It is up to you and your budget.


The two flipbooks will give you a view of the inner book.

The history of Love at War:

The birth of Love at War has a long story which began back in 2012 as a short story. This short story has grown and to date has 106k words.

At that stage, the story had a different name as well and was far from what it has become.

This story has grown with me and went through every stage I went through since its birth. The principal character has grown from a furious woman moved by her physical desires to a woman of substance.

When we meet Sonia Main for the first time, she is a woman battered and abused. The streets a very dangerous place for any woman. When the opportunity comes to make something of herself, she takes it with both hands. And so she lands years later in South Sudan. This is where the story begins in all seriousness and we meet Curt McGee.

Colonel Curt McGee is stationed in Iraq and has his own demons to fight. Being far from home, he feels he is losing his family back at home. Once he receives very upsetting news from home, his world, as he knows it, changes.


Website Book Quotes by Lynelle Clark


Their enemies tried to outsmart them. Obedience their only defence.

Whisked to picturesque Valletta, a lonely nurse met her soul connection. It set the bar in a stirring plot of spiritual and physical survival as a determined warlord in Africa and a cunning wife in America trapped them. The healing sands of Iraq, their only hope.

Passionate about her work, war-torn South Sudan offered Sonia Main peace. When a man from her past confronted her once more, she had a choice to make. A choice that would influence her life.

Could Sonia let go of the past and see a new future?

Would her dreams continue to haunt her? Or would the warm sun of Africa burn away her fears?

Curt McGee was a man bound by honour and duty. It took him away from home for long periods of time.

Caught in infidelity, Curt’s wife’s thinking left him astounded, shocked even. His children prey to an unthinkable enemy.

Would he get beyond his wife’s betrayal?

Could he save his children?

What decisions should he make?

Co-workers devised a plan: book a flight to enjoy a weekend on Malta. An island in the Mediterranean Sea that offered tranquillity and peace to weary souls.

Here, two worlds connect, and the result would change them both for eternity.

Meeting by chance, love confronted them, a love so great that they could not deny it. But time played a trick and demanded a price. A price so high that it would strip them of everything before they could experience the joy of a future.

Obedience was better than sacrifice, revealed the pages of the Holy book. Would they yield or follow their own way?

They could not run or hide from the onslaught. Their enemies’ attacks growing in intensity. Crafty tricks added to the confusion, their fears real. It stripped them of their hopes and dreams. They could only go one way.

When Tau Gbadamosi met Sonia, he had a tough time to understand his feelings. War ravished his country. The enormous plight for help too great for one man or one fight. Faced with loyalty, he had to decide. A decision that would cost him. Would he fail the test?

Africa’s hopes and dreams burned brightly in the harsh African sun. Poverty and lack the driving force for many ‘do-gooders’. It left the continent in a starving grip. But when a warlord sets his sight on the Red Cross nurse, all hell broke loose. No one could stand in his way.

Only God could stop him.

Lover of my soul

Oh, my Sovereign Lord,

I bless your Holy name.

Your Kingdom is eternal

Your words are priceless as pearls.

Your favour is beyond any riches.

Oh Lord, my Father,

Perfect is your timing.

Measured in seconds, time’s algorithm captures infinity within each movement. Worlds changes and fragments become relics. Fashioning a new set of rules to profit from your only choice.

How many of us love plants and admire them, buy them from time to time, but don’t really know how to take good care of them, only to let them die of thirst or drowning it?
If you only have read the instructions, but quickly forget to keep to it, only to see how your lovely plant dies in front of your eyes, after a few weeks (money down the drain).
To have lovely, happy plants around you, you first have to become a good gardener. Only then will you have flourishing plants and see and enjoy the results.
The same goes with love. If love is not taken good care off, it will die. The instructions on how to love are stipulated in the Word of God. Read it carefully, take it to heart and use it in your daily living. You will see and enjoy the results thereof. Take responsibility and nurture your love. The more you give, the more you will receive.

The most important thing in life, to survive all the harshness we are confronted with daily, is LOVE.

Without LOVE we are totally lost and lonely. Like a ship without a sail – out of control and vulnerable to be thrown off course and destroyed by every storm coming our way.

God, our Father, who created every one of us, knew this, and that is why He send His only begotten SON, Jesus Christ, to became man on earth, so that He can show us HOW to LOVE. And, although they crucified Him, He still loves us dearly and it is not His will that one person be lost.

His LOVE is UNCONDITIONAL and no matter who you are of what you did, He will ALWAYS love you.

People may hate and hurt you, they may reject you, turn their back upon you when you don’t fit into their way of doing. But they can never take God’s love away from you.

Die mengsel van tale het ʼn groot rol gespeel in die skepping van die taal wat ons vandag ken. Afrikaans is gevorm in die warm kombuise en wye vlaktes van ons mooi land en het vir vele interessante oomblikke gesorg.

1815 is gekenmerk deur aanpassings, afstande en onluste. In die midde hiervan het Celeste Reyneke geleef. Op haar agtiende verjaarsdag verander haar lewe dramaties en eindig op in ‘n
gerieflikheidshuwelik. Twee jaar later moet sy die wêreld weer alleen in die gesig staar en beland op die Oosgrens. Die tweejaar-lange huwelik was alles behalwe maanskyn en rose en eindig traumaties. Ontnugterd volg sy die pad die binneland in.

Celeste het grootgeword in die Kaap van Storms met ʼn oop gemoed en lus vir die lewe. Sy kon lees en skryf en het ʼn ‘beroep’ gehad. Vir haar het dit natuurlik gekom om die tyd en reëls te verander soos wat die geleentheid hom voorgedoen het. Haar unieke talente kom dadelik op die voorgrond en gou besef mense sy is ʼn aanwins vir die gemeenskap. Maar sy het ook die koppe laat draai. Met die tekort aan vroue en haar natuurlike skoonheid trek sy die aandag.

Barend Olivier, die toonbeeld van manlikheid en dapperheid, is op soek na ʼn vrou wat sal aanpas by sy lewe aan die Oosgrens. Tydens ʼn tweeweke-lange patrollie leer die twee mekaar ken. Maar die pad is lank, warm en rof en ʼn man kan net so lank van ʼn aantreklike vrou af wegbly voor die
fisiese begeertes oorneem. Sal hulle betyds ʼn prediker kan vind?

Die belangrikste vraag is: Sal Celeste hom toelaat om haar lief te hê?

Ek nooi jou om saam met my op hierdie reis te gaan en nie net die spanning van hierdie tydperk te ervaar nie, maar ook die romanse te vind in die grasvlaktes van ons mooi land.
