No-yeast pizza crust – Jamie Oliver

When fasting with youth it is hard to get them motivated- the lack of “fun” food often puts them off. Say the word Pizza, and my kids are all ears. This recipe is from Jamie Oliver’s cook book, I love his creativity. Also because it’s Jamie we know it’s a dependable recipe – I have…

Daniel Fast- Cauliflower steaks

Fasting – for most it is not the most fun word to hear. It is uncomfortable and often trying time. For a time such as this it is fitting. Fasting is a time to restructure priorities to strengthen relationships & faith. Our church has called a time of prayer and fasting, to help strengthen both…

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her Ephesians 5:25 Summer is fast approaching and if your like our family that means grilling season.

Yes, the seasonal holiday foods tend to leave more then one leftover in the fridge. Especially if plans got a bit changed with lockdowns – I am just as guilty – round here we…

Food conspiracy- Dry Ranch mix

I have one child who is developing his taste for veg slowly. Very slowly. Dip is often requested. When it comes to creamy salad dressings I always questioned why creamy dressings could be shelf stable. If you think about it too long, you begin to wonder about all those food conspiracies. How much gunk really…
