Today I want… Continue reading 40 Seconds of Compassion

The Best Marinade

I just love this recipe for Savory Marinade from Kalyns Kitchen!  It is simply my favorite for grilling chicken.  Check out their website for great photos! I have tiny alterations, which is just because that's what I usually have in my kitchen. 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, I quarter my breasts-cut in half and then in… Continue reading The Best Marinade

A Military Wife

I'm so thankful for my friend, Nicole, for sharing her feelings and thoughts about being a military wife.  I honestly couldn't imagine.  I have a hard time when my husband is gone for 5 days for work.  But I know that as we desire to do good, we are strengthened to meet the challenges of… Continue reading A Military Wife

Ingredients: 10 C corn or rice chex- or do both! 9 C popped popcorn- I use Skinny Pop because it's gluten free and there's hardly any kernels to get out. 4 C pretzel… Continue reading Munch Mix

Allergies? What Allergies?

Today's Wednesday story comes from a dear friend from the days of my first college experience at Snow College.  What fun times we had!  One particular adventure caught us trying to get to college in a blizzard.  We couldn't see a thing, and ended up stuck in a tiny town where Nicole remembered she had… Continue reading Allergies?

The Miracle of Forgiveness-Part 1

Yesterday, I had the wonderful opportunity to speak in my ward(church).  As nervous as I always get, I am always so grateful after, because I learn so much as I study the topic of my talk.  I am going to share my talk in two separate posts-not because I think I'm so cool, but because… Continue reading The Miracle of Forgiveness-Part 1

Homemade Salsa for Canning

As my garden veggies start to mature, I can't help but get excited about salsa!  This recipe is from a neighbor when I was living in Brigham City in my youth.  I love to smell this salsa cooking every Fall-except last Fall.  I had a baby instead.  So I'm really anxious to make some this… Continue reading Homemade Salsa for Canning
