Puff Pancake Recipe

Posted by on 6:34 am in Cooking | 0 comments

Here’s the recipe for the Puff Pancake I mention in Chapter 29 of my book, God’s Patient Pursuit of My Soul. I’ve been baking it for over 30 years.

Cheese by any other name (like pre-shredded) is full of it

If you were a customer of mine from my Pampered Chef days, you’ve already heard about why you want to avoid buying bagged grated cheeses and instead, to grate your own cheese. BUT here’s where I let Jenifer, mother of six and friend of Jesus, tell it in her own words. (Not Quite) Mom of the Year Jenifer provides visual evidence in no uncertain terms from her blog with the winsome name, (Not Quite) Mom of the Year.  Not only does she do a side-by-side comparison of same brand grated vs. whole block cheese, but you can actually see...

Posted by on 2:48 am in Blog, Cooking | 0 comments

Yesterday, I switched to eating edamame and oatmeal for breakfast with a piece of fruit.  I use to enjoy an almost daily diet of Greek yogurt.  I’m not sure if I can do that any more.  I want to but… A video of a medical doctor, Dr. Klaper from the University of Illinois College of Medicine, shared the globby, gumminess that sits in our blood after eating products made from milk fats (see link below)..  He documented well the history of how we, in Western society, have significantly changed our diets in the...
