This muffin recipe was inspired by the Pennsylvanian Dutch Shoofly Pie. It has a very heavy molasses flavor. It is like eating the pie without the crust.
Early in the morning on August 11th my precious little C entered the world. My delivery was not what I wanted but it was not unexpected. One of my ultrasounds during my second trimester showed baby C as breach. I was hoping that she had turned and that I could push her on out but … Continue reading God Sighting: The Birth of Baby C
Jesus was Mary's first child. Mary was fairly young according to historians and Joseph was probably quite a bit older than her. Not only was there the miraculous circumstance surrounding Jesus's conception, which probably unnerved Mary and Joseph, but there was also must have been the first time parents nervousness.
My baby girl is due today. I have been doing so many things to prep for her arrival.
Some how I don't think the term "Stay at Home Mum" is quite right. In the words of the great Dezi Arnaz, " Let me splain." July 4th was my last day at my job. I thought to myself, " I have a month to get ready for my little baby! I can get her … Continue reading Stay at Home Mummy — Busier than A Job
he other day I decided to push through my tiredness to make a dish that I was craving so desperately. They are called Chicken Bundles. I think they are kinda like a calzone or stromboli. My husband thinks they are like Hot Pockets. Whatever they are like they are really really good. They have a creamy, chickeny (I know not a word!) center and a rich sweet Crescent roll outside.
It seems like since March my husband and I have not caught a break. They say when it rains it pours. Well, for us, right now it is pouring.
2 Corinthians 12:14-16 says, "And I will very gladly spend and be spent for you; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I be loved." This passage was one I heard over and over again as I served as a Summer Staff member at a camp in Western North Carolina.
As a kid time seemed to drag on. It took forever to get to Chrismas and my birthday. The school year seemed like an eternity. Summer seemed to never end. As an adult, I understand that time goes so quickly. It seems like just yesterday I was getting married. It has been three and a half years now. It seems like it was not that long ago I found out I was expecting my first child. Now I am sitting here in my third trimester wondering how it went so fast. It is crazy to think I have one month at my job and two months before my little one gets here. Time has gone so fast.
On March 22 my Nana entered the presence of the Lord and was reunited with her beloved husband. Life had changed since then. When my dad had surgery several weeks ago I went to call her and let her know dad was doing well and out of surgery. It took me a second but I … Continue reading Mother’s Day Gift: The Christmas Cactus
I am so excited. I am hosting my family at my house for Mother's Day Brunch. Well, I guess technically it is at lunch time with breakfast foods. Does that count as brunch? Anyways, I am busy planning my menu and decorations. I want to keep the decorations fairly simple. I am really leaning towards … Continue reading Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas
