My Mother’s Bread

The only thing I really leaned how to cook as a teen was French bread. My mom makes the BEST french bread. Nothing brings back good memories of home like when I'm baking bread. I added fresh ground wheat to this recipe, but my mom always made it with all purpose for all of the… Continue reading My Mother’s Bread

Sweet Potato and Pineapple Au Gratin

I got this amazing recipe off of Better Homes and Gardens {https://www.bhg.com/recipe/sweet-potato-and-pineapple-gratin/}.

Fresh Bread

"Give us this day our daily bread."  Matthew 6:12 When you are unemployed( see post A Budgeting Blessing) with six kids and a house payment to still make, you really start to appreciate your daily bread.  And when you pray over your food, your level of gratitude deepens.  And for that lesson, I am grateful. In… Continue reading Fresh Bread
