  • Words of Encouragement

    Updated Feb 22, 2024

    This is February, also known as ‘Love-you-wary’. This is the month when we think about love and the ones we love. This can be a great time for some people, but also it can be a very sad time for others. I know that Valentine’s Day is one day of this month, but what if we spent the rest of this month getting to know the one who loved us first. I am talking about Jesus, the one who gave His life for us, even when we did not ask Him to. The Bible says that God demonstrated His love for us, even while we were still sinners. His l...

    Weather teases us with just a hint of spring, then more snow, then gray rainy days. Heat from the oven ready casseroles and warm fresh baked cookies are perfect for chasing away the late winter chill. Oriental Chicken Medley, a rice-based casserole, may be made ahead to bake for the evening meal or baked right away after preparing. The recipe easily accommodates a family's preference in ingredients. The original recipe was on a Durkee French Fried onion can around 1992, but I...

    Laura Estes|Updated Feb 1, 2024

    Bowl game gatherings call for savory buffets of easy to prepare and eat foods. Chili is a great make ahead dish, made from scratch or heated from a can. It holds well in a slow cooker. Chili Con Carne is a recipe in my dad’s cigar box recipe collection. I am guessing this is a recipe he acquired in the 1950’s because the can sizes were listed as one pound, but in the 1960’s manufacturers began the 15-ounce cans. This meaty chili recipe is easy to double or triple for a crowd...
