I went out to go check on them at 6:30 that morning & there they were, two gooey little… Continue reading Let’s Catch Up!
My kitchen door is always open to those looking for a good, homecooked meal and fellowship, and I love having a table of people to feed!

I have dreamed of carrying the large mason… Continue reading Why Our Family Went Raw

So I of course, always have a box in my pantry now. Chicken Pot Pie is a go to meal around here and I… Continue reading Chicken Pot Pie with Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits
Some are going to call me old fashioned for writing this. And they are probably right. I have put off writing a post like this for years, because I didn’t really know if young wives and mothers would be very responsive to it.
