  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time with friends, what a blessing! Enjoy your spring break, I hope to get some r and r too!

  2. It all looks so good! My spring break is next week, I can not wait!

  3. Are you going to post the recipe for the Chicken, Spinach, Tomato and Mozzarella Stomboli? It sounds and looks wonderful!

  4. Love all of it, especially the raspberry frozen yogurt....Emmm

  5. curious about making the green bean/rice in the rice cooker. it shows you making it on the stove. how do you do it in the rice cooker?

  6. @Julie Redman

    Great question! I combine the water, chicken broth, onions and rice in the base of the rice cooker. While the rice is cooking, I steam the green beans (and mushrooms) on the top steamer portion of my rice cooker. When they are done and the rice is done, I stir them together along with the cheese! It works great.

  7. Great Recipes! I found you through another blog. I can't wait to try some of these!

  8. I've never used my crockpot for baking but that apple cake looks yummy.

  9. Yum! I am going to try almost everyhing you have pictured. Thanks so much. I also made your apple cinnamon oatmeal bread on my last batch cooking day, and I'm going to share my experience on my blog later this week. It was SUPER awesome...but I think my loaf pan was too big because my loaves turned out really short. oh well, it still tasted good and next time I'll use a bundt pan or just the one larger loaf pan I have.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
