The Recipe Stash-In My Mother’s Words

It’s March Break Madness and I have nothing to show for it friends.  I ran around all week getting ready for the break, exhausting my resources, patients, and ability to cook.  You don’t even want to know how many meals were leftovers, take out, premade grocery store meals, or just plain fend for yourself, but I’ll

Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese, S’mores Dip, Pot Lucks, and Two Emergency Substitutions

September is almost over, how did that happen? I’m am trying so very hard to keep the pace of life chill this fall.  There has been a sermon series running all month which reminded me of things I already knew but called me out on complacency.  Slow down, be present where you are, and rest.
