EASTER RECIPES: Tantalize Their Taste Buds

EASTER RECIPES: Tantalize Their Taste Buds

Molly Hooper

As Easter approaches, I know how difficult it can be to impress your family and friends with the meal of the day! There never seems to be any time to prepare or even think what should I do? Should I try something new? Should I stick to what I know best and play safe? There seems to be so much pressure on cooking these days as the media continues to swamp us with what seems to be a never-ending stream of new chefs and recipes. Food is big business but what happened to the FUN!

My name is Molly Hooper and I’m a mum of three and a grandmother of two so you could say that I’ve got a little experience in this area. I do not claim to be the answer to all your problems but what I can promise you is that all the recipes in this book will “Tantalize Their Taste Buds” and should give your loved ones a meal they will never forget.

There are 40 different recipes to choose from, appetizers, sides, mains, desserts & drinks. I thought about providing suggested meal plans but to be honest, you know the kind of thing your family enjoys best and so I decided to leave it entirely up to you.

The important thing is not to stress about cooking. It is an art of sorts and like everything in life, practice makes perfect. As a general rule however, the more you enjoy doing something, the better the outcome tends to be.
Thank you for your time,

Molly. xx

Making your own mix from scratch rather than buying it in the store not only saves you money but also saves you from all the additives and preservatives that are put in the foods we buy.

A couple more great things about making your own mixes is they are simple to make, and usually economical. Scale to make a batch as large or small as you like.

I love creating great recipes from scratch that nourishes my family’s bodies and making my own mixes fits right into my plan. If you really want to create good, healthy food for your family as well, make foods with real ingredients.

Six Hours One Friday: Living in the Power of the Cross (The Bestseller Collection)

Max Lucado

I loved this book and didn’t want to put it down as I read it. I was so disappointed when I was done with the book. Max Lucado has a way of reaching people as he writes. It’s almost like he is talking to you – a friend. You can FEEL his words and HEAR his words. I enjoyed this book very much.

Faith

Does life feel futile? Doesn’t have to.

Do some of your failures seem fatal? They aren’t.

And your death. Does the grave appear to be the final stop? According to Christ, your death is just the start of the something great.

There is a truth greater than all the losses and sorrows of life. And it can be discovered in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

In Six Hours One Friday, Max Lucado delves into the meaning of Jesus’ last hours on the cross. Through his death, your life has purpose and meaning. You are forgiven and loved by a Savior who died for you. And an empty tomb proclaims that death does not have the final word.

“Peace where there should be pain. Confidence in the midst of crisis. Hope defying despair. Does death have the last word? I can see Jesus wink as he gives the answer, Not on your life.”

Freakonomics Rev Ed: (and Other Riddles of Modern Life) (P.S.)

Freakonomics Rev Ed: (and Other Riddles of Modern Life) (P.S.)

Steven D. Levitt

This is an excellent, very readable book by a couple of guys who like to go against the grain.

Dennis Littrell

Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? How did the legalization of abortion affect the rate of violent crime?

These may not sound like typical questions for an econo-mist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life—from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing—and whose conclusions turn conventional wisdom on its head.

Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They usually begin with a mountain of data and a simple question. Some of these questions concern life-and-death issues; others have an admittedly freakish quality. Thus the new field of study contained in this book: freakonomics.

Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, Levitt and Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives—how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing. In Freakonomics, they explore the hidden side of . . . well, everything. The inner workings of a crack gang. The truth about real-estate agents. The myths of campaign finance. The telltale marks of a cheating schoolteacher. The secrets of the Klu Klux Klan.

What unites all these stories is a belief that the modern world, despite a great deal of complexity and downright deceit, is not impenetrable, is not unknowable, and—if the right questions are asked—is even more intriguing than we think. All it takes is a new way of looking.

Freakonomics establishes this unconventional premise: If morality represents how we would like the world to work, then economics represents how it actually does work. It is true that readers of this book will be armed with enough riddles and stories to last a thousand cocktail parties. But Freakonomics can provide more than that. It will literally redefine the way we view the modern world.

Bonus material added to the revised and expanded 2006 edition

The original New York Times Magazine article about Steven D. Levitt by Stephen J. Dubner, which led to the creation of this book.

Seven “Freakonomics” columns written for the New York Times Magazine, published between August 2005 and April 2006.

Biblical Foundations for Manhood and Womanhood (Foundations for the Family)

Biblical Foundations for Manhood and Womanhood (Foundations for the Family)

Wayne Grudem, Bruce A. Ware, John Piper, Dan Doriani, Peter R. Jones), Daniel R. Heimbach

Biblically sound review of the topic of women in ministry. Gentle and respectful in its presentation. I used it for a class paper in Biblical studies class, very helpful.

P. J. Taylor

For years a debate has raged over how to define true masculinity and true femininity. While there is agreement that men and women share equally in the privilege of being made in God’s image, some views of manhood and womanhood blur God-given gender distinctions.

Wayne Grudem assembled a team of distinguished writers to show how egalitarian views destroy God’s ideal for your relationships, marriage, and life purposes. The contributors to this book include:

John Piper, Pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Minnesota
Bruce A. Ware, Senior Associate Dean of the School of Theology and Professor of Christian Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
Richard W. Hove, Director of Campus Crusade for Christ at Duke University
Daniel Doriani, Dean of the Faculty and Professor of New Testament at Covenant Theological Seminary
Daniel R. Heimbach, Professor of Christian Ethics at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
Peter Jones, Professor of New Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary in California

These writers explore key issues, including the interchangeability of male-female roles, the meaning of submission, and the historical novelty of egalitarian interpretations of Scripture. This book will demonstrate how some views of manhood and womanhood tamper with our understanding of God’s character and why the extremes of male domination and feminism destroy the beauty of our sexual differences-differences that celebrate the excellence of men and women as God created us.

Downside Up: Transform Rejection into Your Golden Opportunity

Tracey Mitchell

The book flows nicely and deals with many forms of rejection in all aspects of life. My favorite part of the book is how Tracey gives real life examples of how rejection has been turned into opportunity in real life. After all rejection is simply the reaction or opinion of another person. When we think of how simple that statement actually is our whole perspective changes. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to take on rejection with an open mind and turn it into something positive!

Laura

A harsh reality of life is that it’s not always enjoyable. Everyone has experienced rejection. Whether in the form of hash words, unreciprocated love, loss or betrayal. Most people perceive rejection as a negative occurrence, when, in reality, rejection can be one of the most powerful tools in life.

Downside Up contains step-by-step guides, resources, and inter-active pages necessary to restore lost identity and transform dreams into reality. Downside Up offers wisdom, guidance, and personal application while also outlining and establishing key biblical principles that promote emotional and mental wellness. Readers will:

Understand the importance of developing a positive and God-designed self-portrait

Identify their life’s purpose and maximize their potential for success

Discover the value of godly mentors and other positive relationships

Overcome negative thoughts, fear, and lack of self-confidence

Rejection is not about experiencing loss. It is an asset for fulfilling your dreams.

Speak Love: Making Your Words Matter

Annie F. Downs

I read Annie downs first book, Perfectly Unique and loved it! I am only on chapter one of Speak Love and I can tell she uses the same writing style I fell in love with in perfectly unique. Her writing style is as if she is talking to you face to face over a big glass of tea. That is what I love most about her writing style. I can’t wait to learn all of the truths presented in Speak Love!

emily dinsmore

Every day, God gives us each the opportunity to use our words in powerful ways. The Bible says that words have the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21), and Annie Downs has discovered during her life the truth of that verse. Speak Love is a call for teen girls to be the genertation of women who focus on bringing life – not death – with their words and have the potential to end the mean girl mentality within themselves, their friends, and others in their schools and churches.

Lisa Orchard

A great YA murder mystery with quirky characters, surprises at many turns and fun through and through. It brought me back to my days of reading Hardy Boys and a few others in my young teen years (quite refreshing). Thank you for that Lisa 🙂

DragonRene

In a small town in Michigan, fifteen-year-old Sarah Cole is stuck spending the summer at her Aunt and Uncle’s with her sister, Lacey. She’s not happy with the situation until she befriends a girl named Jackie. The three girls stumble upon the ruthless murder of a reclusive neighborhood woman and what’s worse? One of the officers investigating the crime believes the girls are responsible for her death.

Fearing that this officer will frame them for the murder, the girls organize their own detective squad. They become the Super Spies and start their own investigation. The Super Spies can’t understand why anyone would want to murder the “Cat Lady” until they start digging into her past and discover a horrible crime that happened thirty years ago. They uncover a connection between the two crimes and attempt to bring this information to the police, only to be reprimanded for meddling in the investigation. Not only are the girls upset by the admonition, but they also struggle with the fact that their exuberant investigating could provide a legal loophole allowing the killer to go free. Frustrated by this turn of events, the Super Spies realize it’s up to them to snare the Cat Lady killer.

Or die trying…

Attack at Noon

I’ve read other works by David Stansfield and was thoroughly impressed by his writing. He’s a true master at story-telling and this book once again does not disappoint. I think this book has a wide appeal — to young adult readers and to those adults who enjoy reading YA lit. It’s highly entertaining and educational.

Snow Melts in Spring (Seasons of the Tallgrass)

Deborah Vogts

This was a very good debut novel. I always love a good romance, especially one that involves horses! I loved the fact that this one didn’t get too detailed with the romance parts and I can feel good about my Mom, my daughter or any other young people picking it up off the shelf. There were some inspirational Christian messages and values in there which was refreshing. I loved the characters and the details. I found myself smiling or chuckling many times because I could relate to some of the characters and picture just what was going on.

Spring for Susannah

Catherine Richmond

This was a very sweet story of loved healing power and God’s healing power. No smut or garbage, just true honesty. Loved this book and hope to read many more like it.

Adreana Ramsey

Hundreds of miles from home, Susannah faces an uncertain future as a mail-order bride on the untamed Dakota prairie.

When her parents die suddenly, and no suitors call, Susannah resigns herself to the only option available: becoming a mail-order bride. Agreeing to marry her pastor’s brother, Jesse, Susannah leaves the only home she’s ever known for the untamed frontier of the Dakota Territory.

Her new husband is more loving and patient with her than she believes she deserves. Still, there is also a wildness to him that mirrors the wilderness surrounding them. And Susannah finds herself constantly on edge. But Jesse’s confidence in her—and his faith in God’s perfect plan—slowly begin to chip away at the wall she hides behind.

When she miscarries in the brutal Dakota winter, Susannah’s fledgling faith in herself and in God begins to crumble. Still, Jesse’s love is unwavering. Just when it seems like winter will never end, Susannah finally sees the first tentative evidence of spring. And with it, the realization that more than the landscape has changed.

She looks to the future with a renewed heart. Yet in her wildest dreams, she couldn’t predict all that awaits her.

HearthLand is a serial novel released in episodes.

Taking a step back in time–deliberately.

After a trip to Walden Farm and an afternoon talking to Chad and Willow Tesdall, Ralph Myner caught a vision for what life could be like. Against the advice of his nephew, Ralph sinks his entire retirement account into an incredibly risky venture.

Harlan Myner thinks his uncle has gone crazy. With the project in motion, all he can do is try to find people to invest their time, money, and even their lives into Ralph’s project before the man ends up broke and without means to survive.

People come from all walks of life as they embrace a new world–the world of HearthLand.

Episode 2: Between an accident on the job and a serious misunderstanding with his girlfriend, Ramiro Vega isn’t having a good month. Ralph’s month isn’t much better. His California family is in a minor panic after a phone call, and Harlan is determined to put a stop to this “crazy idea” of his uncle’s–even if it means going to Rockland and dragging the stubborn but beloved man home to Los Angeles. The days are winding down to the big event at Walden Farm, but it seems as if every obstacle short of a tornado is blocking the path.
