I have not been posting regularly here as of late, and I apologize. College in my older age is kicking me around until I can't see my coming from my going.

Book Review - Twirl by Patsy Clairmont

Friday, April 04, 2014


Twirl: A Fresh Spin at Life is written by Patsy Clairmont and is published by W Publishing Group.

I love Patsy Clairmont. Through the years, I have read many of her books. She has a witty way about her, yet what she says is truth. Her latest book, Twirl, is not a rehash of former stuff. It is fresh, witty, and refreshing. As I get older, I sometimes feel that life can get stale, boring, and irrelevant. Patsy is there to remind me, and others like me, that it does not have to be that way. We can, and should, make choices that keep us focused on what life is rather than what it was or what we wished it could have been.

This is a great read for women who need a shot of encouragement and refreshment for the soul. As with all of Patsy Clairmont's books, I simply "ate it up".

Delicious Flourless Cake

Wednesday, April 02, 2014














My daughter, age 12, made this cake for our dessert tonight. No, it is not vegan. Yes, it is gluten-free. It is soft, moist, and delicious. We used sugar cane crystals (unrefined sugar) rather than white sugar and carob rather than cocoa. Makes it a little healthier, but I'll have to tell you that the finished product is not a health food product. It is just tasty.


You can find the recipe here.

Book Review - Crazy Stories Sane God by John Alan Turner

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_c_0_13?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=crazy%20stories%20sane%20god&sprefix=crazy+stories%2Caps%2C208





Crazy Stories Sane God is written by John Alan Turner and is published by B&H Publishing Group.

I have to be honest. Whenever I see titles like the above, I tend to wonder if the author is writing about a cuddly, look-the-other-way God. You know what I'm talking about. John Alan Turner wrote a book about GOD - big, powerful, the God of the Bible. Yes, some of the stuff in the Bible is crazy. Yes, some of it is scary. And yes, a lot of the time, the stories don't seem to make sense. Turner doesn't really try to make a lot of sense out of it all. He just tries to help us to see the bigger picture.

The bigger picture is that God is God. He does some crazy things. People are people. We do some crazy things. Only God can make sense of it all.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Crazy Stories Sane God and I think you will too. If you've ever wondered why some stories made the final cut when that final version was put together, you might want to give this book a good read through.

Home Canned Peaches
Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Sloppy Joes
Asparagus
Butternut Squash
Home Canned Applesauce

Book Review - One Lost Sheep by Rhonda Gowler Greene and Margaret Spengler

Wednesday, March 19, 2014





One Lost Sheep is written by Rhonda Gowler Greene, illustrated by Margaret Spengler, and published by Zonderkidz.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading through One Lost Sheep tonight. As you might guess, the story is a retelling of the parable about the shepherd who loses one sheep and goes after it, bringing it back to join the remaining 99. Throughout this story, the shepherd is looking all over the place, in awkward places, and everywhere, for that one lost sheep. The joy he feels when he finally finds that lost sheep is nothing less than ecstatic. The moral of this story, as is that of the parable Jesus told, is that God loves his children and watches over them.

This is a beautifully illustrated book. Children from ages 4-8 will love it, but so will mommies and daddies, and other people in your child's life.

The Many Uses of Coconut Oil





If you have been following natural cures and healthy eating plans, you already know about the benefits of coconut oil. As an avid user of coconut and coconut oil, I thought I would post some interesting facts and uses.


  • Make an all-natural insect repellant that utilizes coconut oil as its main ingredient.
  • Oil pulling: essentially swishing coconut oil in your mouth for 20 minutes and then spitting it out.
  • Making cold pressed soap.
  • As a homemade lotion for the skin.
  • To replace shortening in recipes
  • Spread a little on toast - it's surprisingly good.
 There are many, many uses for coconut oil. I grease my baking pans with it. I tried to do the oil pulling (above) but I'm not sure it was working right for me. I couldn't get past the first 10 minutes of swishing the oil in my mouth without gagging and almost swallowing it. Perhaps you will have a better time of it. Instead of oil pulling to remove toxins, I will continue to drink fresh juice I make with my juicer. That has worked wonders for me.
