I work most evenings, so for months, my sister would make dinner for the family. Well, my sister got a job (yay!) and started working 9-5 last week…which means making dinner is up to me again!
I love cooking, so I don’t mind that the responsibility has fallen on me, and fortunately for me, my sister had several weeks of meals planned ahead. And with the help of Pinterest, finding ideas for dinner is easy.
Tonight’s recipe is a new one for us. It’s Tebow Family Pizza Pie! Apparently there’s some guy named Tebow who’s famous or something…
Okay, I’m not THAT out of the loop – I know who Tim Tebow is and when I found this recipe, I knew we had to try it. Who doesn’t love pizza? Or pie?
Being a week after Easter, stores have Easter candy marked down 6,000% off. We have more candy than we know what to do with, so I’ve decided to made brownies and throw some Snickers in. Sounds good, right? Most recipes I’ve looked up have you make brownies from scratch, but we have boxes of brownie mix, so why do the extra work?
Pizza Pie + Snickers Brownies = pretty good Tuesday!
Action, adventure, and romance are woven together beautifully in this second book in the Alaskan Courage series. Follow Piper McKenna and Landon Grainger as they travel to Canada, searching for answers in the case of a high profile murder. The lead suspect is Reef McKenna, and it seems only Piper believes in her brother’s innocence. As Piper and Landon search for the truth, they must face burning questions, dangerous situations – and the changes in their relationship.
From the moment you begin, you’ll be captivated by the plot, the characters, and the nail-biting suspense. Another great story from Dani Pettrey – you won’t want to put it down!
Katie Ganshert‘s Wishing on Willows, the story following Wildflowers from Winter, is beautifully blended with themes of preserving the past, looking to the future, and the healing only God can provide.
Robin Price deals with trying to move on with her life, while still holding on to the memory of her late husband – not only for herself but for her three-year old son. When a stranger comes to town and threatens her café – her safe haven in a world of chaos – she must fight to save it.
When Ian McKay arrives in Peaks, Iowa, the last thing he wants is to cause trouble. He simply wants to save his family’s business. When Robin Price refuses to cooperate, he has no choice but to go head-to-head with this stubborn café owner. Who will win in this battle? Or will they both surrender to something greater?
You can check out the first three chapters of Wildflowers From Winter here, and you can order the book here. Once you’re hooked and decide to order it (;-)), you can get a sneak peek of Wishing on Willows here and pre-order it here.
Shattered came in the mail today! I can’t wait to read it again! It’s on order at the library, so make sure you check it out! Congratulations to Dani! She’s done an excellent job!
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,500 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
This week’s website is geared toward children – or the young at heart!
As Christmas nears, we love to listen to Christmas music, decorate, watch Christmas movies, and play Christmas games! This site is one that I’ve visited in the past and still enjoy this time of year. It’s NorthPole.com!
There are pages on Northpole.com where children can read personalized stories, the Elves’ Game Chest, and a Christmas Countdown Calendar. You can make an account on the site for all ages – there’s a Child/Student Log In, Parent/Adult Log In, and a Teacher Log In.
One of my favorite features is the NORAD Santa Tracker! On Christmas Eve, this site will “track” Santa as he travels all over the world delivering gifts to children!
I hope you enjoy Northpole.com and that it becomes a tradition for your family each year!
We in the A Family have decided to Make The Switch – from red meat to turkey.
That sounds very official, but it’s really not. We’re not strict about it at all. We still occasionally eat burgers, but for the most part, we’re switching to turkey. Why, you may ask? I won’t start lecturing about the harm caused by eating red meat; I won’t tell you that eating red meat will cause your unborn children to grow extra limbs; I won’t tell you the benefits of making the switch yourself. We’re making the switch because we want to. Yep, it’s just that simple.
I had my first turkey burger a few months ago, and I didn’t know what to expect. It was a Jennie-O Seasoned Turkey Burger and it was incredible. I had to check out Jennie-O after that. When I came across the Jennie-O website, I found it really helpful and informative. They have recipes, information about cooking with turkey, and a fun way to find recipes based on what you’re craving. They even have recipes from around the world that you can make using their products.
Another thing I like about this site is that they’re not anti-red meat. They won’t tell you that you shouldn’t eat red meat, or even that their products are the best. On one of their pages, they state: “We’re on a mission to show the world how easy and delicious it is to eat well. So go ahead and try it—simply switch to turkey in your favorite meals for a tasty way to eat better.”
I hope you enjoy Jennie-O!
