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.

I can[...] read more

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

Jalapeno Turkey Burger

Well, I never.

That look of rapture ... the appreciative grunts ... the "Wow, that's tasty" -- not once, but TWICE. I never thought I'd win Dave over to turkey burgers. Not in this lifetime ...

Tera’s New Favorite Soup

So, if you haven’t noticed, we make soup a LOT around here. A lot as in at least once a week, and sometimes two. In the winter, that might bump up to three. It’s just amazing to me how easy soup is, and how just the addition or subtraction[...] read more

Split Pea Soup (Bump)

This originally posted in 2011, but a new friend made it and told me so on our Twig and Feather Facebook page. So now I have to make a batch myself. Oh, the power of suggestion …

I’ve been absent all week … too sick to even get online.[...] read more

Fair-Worthy Corn Dogs

I was watching Paula Deen a few weeks ago (I adore her to pieces, btw. When, o when is she going to invite me over for coffee?) when she announced that she was going to show us how to make "Co-wern Dahgs." I almost didn't have time to ponder her impressive ability to pull a second syllable out of a one-syllable word, because my thoughts instantly went to the Fair ...

Easy and Delicious Swedish Meatballs

I know I’ve got a good thing going when Dave tells me four times how good it is, then adds, “These meatballs are five times better than Ikea’s, and four times better than Costco’s.” I had no idea my husband had spent so[...] read more

Welcome Back Cookies

I’ll be honest … these are the M & Ms left over after I removed all the green ones to make St. Patrick’s Day cookies. Sure, most people would simply toss the rest of the bag once it had been ruined like that. But I thought, Why[...] read more

Isaiah 53

If Jesus had not left the beauty of heaven, where He was adored and worshiped as God, and entered humanity through a dark, obscure cave;

if He had not endured betrayal by the ones He loved most,
and stood silent while mere humans plucked out His[...] read more
