Teriyaki Rice Bowl

If you are anything like me, you have days when you just need an emotional or spiritual boost. It’s not that there is anything wrong with life, but you just seem to get bogged down with…life. Changing diapers, doing dishes, running errands, work, callings and the list goes on. Sometimes you have the energy for … More Teriyaki Rice Bowl

Cheese and Trees

On Saturday I was able to attend the General Women’s Broadcast with a friend. It was very edifying, and I came away feeling so wonderful! The broadcast was both encouraging (regarding what women are already doing) and motivating (for women to be the best we can be). There were a couple themes that I noted, such as … More Cheese and Trees

Tin Foil Dinners

I have a little video that somewhat ties into a camp-dinner like Tin Foil Dinners. The video, called Flecks of Gold, is a parable about a guy who went to look for gold in California. He wanted to find nuggets of gold, until a prospector taught him to save up the small flecks of gold. The … More Tin Foil Dinners

PB Pretzel Fudge

A while ago I posted a little video about the power of prayer, and I kind of want to reiterate that in my post today. The other night Limi and I went to bed exhausted and forgot to have our night time prayers. That night our son did not sleep well, and after the 3rd or 4th time … More PB Pretzel Fudge

Ridd, given in “The Choice Generation“: “As important as it is to leave home every day with a full … More Perfect French Bread

In Sunday school a few weeks ago, the Young Women lesson was “How can I prepare now to become a righteous wife and mother?“. The challenge that was given at the end of the lesson was to watch a video called Mothers and Daughters. Each young woman was to watch it with her mother. When … More Honey Oat Bread

100% Whole Wheat Bread

A week or two ago I subscribed to receive a daily inspirational message from lds.org. Nearly every day, I have received an email with a quote or two from general authorities on gospel topics. One that I received today seems particularly applicable, as we launch into a season of learning, socializing, and many holidays. These … More 100% Whole Wheat Bread

Zucchini Cacciatore

I am just so grateful for all the people around me who have an abundance mentality. I keep receiving lots of zucchini’s from friends and neighbors, and even people, who live down the street from me, who put a “free” box of vegetables out by the road. True, zucchini’s are in full season and coming … More Zucchini Cacciatore

Pear Spice Pancakes

Happy beginning of September! Autumn is my absolute favorite season! Maybe it has something to do with all the colors, jackets and smell of cinnamon, apples and pumpkin spice, it is great! I also love the abundant harvest that comes during this season! Harvest time seems to make it easier to live abundantly. At the … More Pear Spice Pancakes
