I love a good muffin for breakfast. Topped with almond butter and a cup of coffee and I’m happy. Recently I shared my favorite all-purpose gluten-free flour mix and asked what you would make with it. I decided not only would I send three people some of my flour, but I would also post a [...]

First and foremost, I want to give a very sincere “THANK YOU” to everyone who has left comments here and on Facebook with words of support and encouragement after the recent trademark debacle. My cup runneth over.♥
The tree is up. The presents are bought. An early Christmas Eve dinner at Trezo Mare was delicious and church service at Living Water Christian Church has set the mood for the rest of the weekend. I’m going to keep this short and sweet so I can relax with the family, watch a movie and [...]
Here it is…my Christmas cookie repertoire. The list is small, but mighty. Only four of mine and my family’s all-time favorites. This quartet has it all, though. A little chocolate, a little ginger, a little butter and even a fluffy little marshmallow.

I have a tasty Bible lesson for you this Sunday evening. Last week I received an email from my pastor, Laura Guy, asking if I had come across anything interesting about manna. She knows that I enjoy reading books about nutrition in the Bible. “And”, she said, “if I wanted to bring something to church [...]
We had our final cooking class with the kids from Frank Rushton yesterday. It’s been so much fun making a Thanksgiving feast with them the past few weeks. If you missed the previous posts, we’ve made Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup and Whole Wheat Breadsticks. This week we made dessert — Whole Wheat Cranberry muffins with [...]
If you are one of those who think you cannot make bread — whole wheat bread at that — then this is the recipe for you. So easy even 4th and 5th graders can make it. The best part is that start to finish it takes less than an hour. Not kidding. Check out these [...]
Now into our third week of school, I think I am finally getting back into the routine. Ah….routine. Call me a “type A”, but the structure does make life easier. Like most things in life, though, it doesn’t come without a cost. What I gain in efficiency, I lose in control — control over what [...]
