Thank you for joining us on our "blog journey".  We have the privilege of cooking at two different churches and are always searching and experimenting with quick recipes. Our precious son Andrew takes almost all of our food photos and helps to plan all of our menus.  I hope you find something you enjoy or can use!

Sometimes Drew and I get the opportunity to do odd cooking or baking or catering jobs for friends and family.
A co-worker of Better Half's asked if we could make some watermelon-fruit baskets for an anniversary party.  We did some zig zag bowls and some handle bowls.
