5K Double-Chocolate Peanut Butter Muffins

I’ve just gotten back to blogging after an embarrassingly long absence and have spent the past few days updating plugins and deleting this and that. I have to confess I’m just a little big appalled by all the drafts I left unfinished[...] read more

French Onion Soup 5

All-Day French Onion Soup

Does the title scare you? I had to be truthful. In the spirit of full disclosure, you need to know that this is a recipe best made on those days when your car has been stolen, or you have a flat tire, or a tree has fallen across the driveway. You know.[...] read more

Cowboy Courtin’

I was seven that summer morning between first and second grade when I had my first taste of wooing. Danny was a quiet classmate, someone I’d smiled at once or twice and shared my reading book with on a half-dozen occasions when he couldn’t[...] read more

Secret Pal

I got a card from my not-so-secret pal a few weeks back. She’s eleven, blonde-ish, and creeping up on me height-wise. She lives in the bedroom above mine. As far as secret-pal duties go, she favors sneaking up on me when I’m working and[...] read more

Gage

Beautiful

Gage follows me into the bathroom and watches while I put the brush back where it belongs. As we turn to leave, he settles his gaze on the drawer where I keep the bandaids — the boring ones, and the ones I’ve collected just for him.

On Faith and Tumbling

It took a lot of faith to get in that car twenty-nine years ago, and drive seven hours to a town I’d never been to, with a boy I hadn’t known a year. It took all the faith I had to stand and face him, and take his hands, and promise before[...] read more

Of Mice and Young Men

I saw the boy as Dave and I were driving out the back entrance of the Starbucks parking lot. I’m amazed I noticed him at all because I was totally consumed with my iced grande soy latte. I’d been trying to get up the courage to try a soy[...] read more

Peanut Brittle Hearts for Valentine’s Day

I’ve been meaning to share this peanut brittle recipe forever, because it’s one of the easiest candies you can make, and everyone seems to love it. I’ve also been meaning to post a Valentine’s Day recipe … and don’t[...] read more

Hannah Overton (7)

The final post in a series I wrote after meeting Hannah Overton’s church and family. If you have not already done so, please consider writing a letter to the governor of Texas asking for clemency for Hannah. Details can be found on this[...] read more

Germany-Part 2

Today I’ve got a handful of interesting facts to share with you. Mind you, I’ve learned all of this while on a simple quest to buy the ingredients to make cookies. Our apartment has a full-but-tiny kitchen, and I thought I’d make[...] read more

Move Over, Campbell’s … This is REAL Tomato Soup

Okay, maybe that was too harsh. I don’t actually think Campbell’s uses fake tomatoes in their soup. But neither do I believe they walk out behind the factory with little fabric-lined baskets and lovingly select and then hand-pick only the[...] read more

One Year Bible: Jan 1


It’s a new year, and a new chance to start again with the One Year Bible. If you’ve never heard of the OYB, let me recommend it to you. With this system, you read a portion each day from the Old Testament, Psalms, Proverbs, and the[...] read more

Cheesy Bread

A few of you asked me for the recipe for Cheesy Bread (as pictured with the Turkey Chowder). Not only is this really quick and simple, it’s also a huge hit. There’s never a piece left when I make this. My son could probably eat the entire[...] read more

This Moment

It’s just a bowl of oatmeal. Scotch cut; nonfat milk; a hint of real maple syrup, added in a last-second burst of indulgence. The coffee is a tad on the cool side — enough to notice; not enough to drive me from this chair. But I ground[...] read more
