Taking A Little R&R...


Good Morning!

It's been a little busy here with all the things to 
do around our home since the hail storms.

Boy were they ever devastating!
We had 2 major hail storms in 2 days and it left a mess behind.

We will be painting the houses and replacing boards and screens,
fixing leaks and water damage,
fixing and repairing our out buildings
planting pretty flowers (once we know it's safe from anymore storms)
Well, maybe I'll hold off on the last one for awhile longer. :-)


So before all this work is to begin, we are heading down the road
for a much needed vacation!

I will see you all back here in 2 weeks!

I hope you all have a wonderful month of May
or at least what's left of it.

Hugs to you All and Thanks for stopping by!

Listening To God...



Are you equipped with the right tools 
to learn how to really listen to God?

Do you really know what tools to use?

No, you don't need a hammer or a screwdriver for this lesson...

What tools do you use?

Here are a few that I have found very helpful over the years.

  A regular time and place:
Select a slot on your schedule and a corner 
of your world and claim it for God.

Make a reservation with just you and God!

For me it's first thing in the morning.
But you may prefer in the evenings.

   You need your BIBLE opened.
God speaks to us through His Word.
The first step in reading through your bible 
is to ask God to help you understand it.

Don't go to scripture looking for your own idea, 
go searching for God's.

And the last tool is... not only do we need a regular time and an open bible,
we also need a listening heart....
If we want to be just like Jesus, let God have ALL of You!

Spend time listening for Him until you have
 received your lesson for the day 
and then apply it!

I have found these small tools to really help me
 get in a deep study with God each day.

And I always have my heart turned on to the beat of God!

I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed week!

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes...



Who here LOVES Pancakes??

My boys love all kinds of Pancakes!

You name it, we've made them!

These ones above are one of their all time favorites!

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Pancakes

So, we start off by making our homemade pancake mix:
1 Tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg
1 cup milk
2 Tbsp. oil
1 cup flour

Mix together in a large bowl.
Then add in sliced strawberries and a 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips.
Spoon batter onto a hot greased griddle.
Cook until golden brown.
If you want to make more than 12 pancakes, double the recipe.

Place onto a plate and add butter, syrup, more sliced strawberries
and sprinkle with mini chocolate chips.

It's a delicious meal!!

Don't forget to add the bacon and eggs!

What is your favorite kind of Pancakes??

Have a great week!

Angel Eggs...

Gods Grace Overflows

Who here loves Deviled Eggs?
Well, we do but we call them "Angel Eggs"

Why should we give the devil credit for something so yummy?

We don't and shouldn't!!

So, when you go to make these the next time,
tell everyone they are Angel Eggs.

I make mine with a few special ingredients
and I think I'll share them with you today.

As long as you promise to never call these delicious eggs
anything but ANGEL EGGS, deal?

Angel Eggs

6-8 hard boiled eggs, peeled, rinsed and halved
1/4 cup to 1/2 cup mayo
2 tsp. creamy horseradish sauce
2 green chilies, cleaned and seeded
1 garlic clove, minced
garlic salt to taste
pepper to taste
paprika, optional

Pop out the egg yolks into a medium bowl.
Smash with a fork.  Now add in the mayo, horseradish,
 green chilies, garlic and pepper. Mix really well. 
 If the mixture is still too dry, add in a bit more mayo.
Sprinkle with paprika if desired.
Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

Now where is that smell button?
Yummy!


Gods Grace Overflows


If these make it to the dinner table, I wouldn't store them more than 3 days.
When the yolk and mayo start to separate, I'd toss them out!

How do you make your Angel Eggs??

These Eggs shouldn't be made for just the holidays
They should be made year round!


I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Blessings,

Trusting...



What does it mean to put your trust in someone or something?

Well, if you look up the word Trust it means:

To Have Confidence In
To Be Bold
To Be Secure
To Feel Safe

To confide in one another
to set one's hope and confidence upon anyone.

Do you have trust issues with someone?

I love this scripture:

TRUST in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5

WOW!

Do you put all of your trust into God?

Sometimes it's hard to fully put trust in someone
 and for all the unseens out there.

I love it that I don't have to worry about what tomorrow brings 
or to the unknown future.  

God all ready knows the outcome
and we should lean on Him and Trust Him no matter
what our worry is.

God's all ready there and he is protecting us and
keeping us safe from whatever lies ahead.

You just have to TRUST in Him fully!

Are you being Bold?

Take a step in Faith and Trust in Him
and step outside of your Comfort Zone!

God doesn't want you to stay confined to a small box!

There is a great big world out there, 
waiting for you to take that step!

Do you feel secure?

Do you feel safe?

Well, with God you should!

He is not here to harm us, but to love us unconditionally!

Just put all of your Trust into Him
and He will do the rest!


I hope you all take the time to really press in 
and see what God is doing within your lives!

He's Moving.... Are You?


In His Grace,

No Yeast Bread...



Good Morning All!

I have been trying to find a no yeast bread recipe and 
I have been experimenting again trying to make a home bread 
with no yeast.  I want a bread that is moist and fluffy
and not all dense and dry.

I have been struggling with yeast breads for a bit now
and I have narrowed it down to the baker's yeast
 that is making my tummy not so happy.

Did you know that they put a yeast extract 
like in almost all of our foods?

I was shocked when I was eating something that thought there is no way 
this can have yeast in it and it does!  
It was Cream of Chicken soup..... 
Most processed foods have some sort of yeast in it.
And there are several different yeasts that they use...
I have been educating myself and now I am
 learning to read all the ingredients on the boxes.

Once, I took the yeast out of my diet, 
my tummy started to feel much better!

Amazing, right?

I keep getting those little checks, like I shouldn't be eating that or
the little whispers that say if you eat that you will be sick.

Well, I have finally decided that I need to cut all yeast products
 out of my diet for a while and see if these other symptoms go away. 
 As of right now, I actually feel really good.

I tried to eat some Cheese It's the other day and
 that horrible feeling came back,
lone behold I look at the ingredients and 
viola there is yeast in them too!

So.....
I'll leave all the yeast issues behind and tell you 
I have found a no yeast bread that seems
to fit my bread cravings!  Yay!

I hope you give this a try too, 
it is a very yummy bread!



Non-Yeast Bread

3 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg, beaten
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease one loaf pan, set aside.
Combine all the dry ingredients. Blend in the egg and buttermilk.
Add to flour mixture.  Mix well. Stir in the melted butter.
Pour into greased pan.
Bake for 65-70 minutes or until golden brown.

This bread makes a great piece of toast 
and is perfect for a sandwich!

Happy Baking Friends!
