This week's featured recipe is Tater Tot casserole, and whoever came up with the original version of this dish sure did make my husband happy.
While sitting in church on Sunday, Pastor Charles Hodnett was really bringing forth some of what I like to call golden nuggets of wisdom.
One of the first meals I cooked for my husband Kevin was shepherd's pie.
I am beginning to learn a whole new dimension of faith.
Before you completely turn the page or turn your nose up at this week's recipe -- Snickers salad -- just try it first. If you don't like it, you'll never have to eat it again.Sounds a little something like what your mom would say, doesn't it?
Kevin and I have a group of friends we used to get together with most every weekend. We would all hang out, eat, watch the kids play, watch football, and such.. As life goes sometimes, we don't all hang out that much anymore.
Ambrosia salad -- it seems to me that this is one of those dishes people either like or they don't. I've not met too many people who are in-between about it.. Some time last year I shared my version of an ambrosia salad and it is my favorite but
Just thinking about having a slice of cheesecake makes my mouth water. I’ve always been a huge fan of cheesecake. I’ve tried all kinds of cheesecake — chocolate, turtle cheesecake and I’ve even had a key lime pie cheesecake.
The day of love, better known as Valentine's Day, is Tuesday.. But wait, shouldn't every day be a day of love? I think so. Especially if you a Christian.. The word tells us to love, as He first loved us. No where does it say we should love some days
I'm not sure what could say Valentine's Day more than a homemade red velvet cake, and today's recipe happens to come from a lady who is just as sweet as her mother's recipe for a made-from-scratch cake.. Conyers resident Betty Jean Brown submitted her recipe via her co
Chicken cream cheese dip is this week's featured recipe. Stacy got the recipe from her friend Gloria, who I hear is quite the cook. Stacy also noted that Gloria and her family have this appetizer on their sailboat so you know the recipe has to be easy and not messy
There are two things that I've never forgotten about the late Jay Ingram -- he was always smiling and, if he wasn't on the soccer field playing, he had a soccer ball in his hand.
When my husband Kevin and I got married, neither of us wanted to leave our home churches. We both had invested a lot into our home churches, but moreso into the people we had worshipped with week after week and year after year.
Some of you might get a kick out of this week's column. I know I've laughed about it all week.. I learned a few lessons from cooking this recipe, Crock-Pot Hawaiian chicken.. Here's my No. 1 tip -- Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.. I had seen
My husband Kevin preached at our church service this past Sunday while our pastor, Pastor Charles, and his family were out of town.
While hanging out with the in-laws and watching some college football one Saturday afternoon not too long ago, my mother-in-law Janie stirred up a delicious pot of vegetable chowder for all of us to eat.
There is something about the old hymns that just bless my heart. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of the worship songs and contemporary Christian music we have nowadays. But just to reach down and pick up a hymnal does something for my soul.
We've all heard the old saying, "Southerners can make any dish into a casserole." Well, that is exactly what I thought when I heard about this cabbage casserole that my sister-in-law Stacy Ingram was making for our Christmas dinner this year.. I'll have to be honest --
It is so easy to get caught up in resolutions in January, only to have forgotten about them by February. But maybe this new year we should just focus on doing what God truly created us all to do, and that is to love one another and spread the good news of Him.
The memories behind this week's featured recipe are just as sweet as the syrup that covers this homemade French toast recipe.. As a child, it used to amaze me how my grandmother would whip loaf bread into golden delicious squares of french toast, lightly sprinkled with powered sugar and drizzled with hot syrup.
"I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart! Where? Down in my heart!" Yes, the lyrics to "I've Got the Joy in my Heart" have been sung more than once at our house since my husband and I found out that we will be the parents of a little girl. And we are naming her Joy.

Today, we honor some of Santa's helpers by making this Christmas treat -- reindeer cupcakes.I can't remember where in the world I first saw the recipe for reindeer cupcakes. It may have been online or in a magazine. Either way, the recipe has stayed in my memory long enough for
For the month of December, I have the privilege of teaching the little ones at City of David Covenant Church about the birth of our holy Savior.. We, the other teachers at the church, all rotate throughout the year and sign up to teach a month or two during the
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and at Kelly Richard’s house, it has begun to smell like Christmas, too.
How does the saying go? Without Christ there would be no Christmas.That's right. For He is the sole -- or for a Christian I should spell it out as "soul" -- reason in celebrating Christmas.
We all have a certain dish that makes us smile from the inside out when the holidays appear. Maybe it's the turkey you just ate. Or maybe it is your mom's homemade fudge. For me, it is Black Forest cake.. My grandparents used to make Black Forest cake every holiday
Are you working on getting your Christmas cards sent out? Have you bought any presents yet? Or are you like some folks who still can't believe its December?. I started getting the Christmas fever earlier this year. I was kind of hinting around to my husband that I thought it

Aren't you glad to know that Jesus isn't finished with you yet?
You can’t have Thanksgiving dinner without turkey. And you certainly can’t have Thanksgiving dinner and turkey without the sweet potato casserole either.
Aren't you glad to know that Jesus isn't finished with you yet?. I mean, if you are reading this column, then your time on earth hasn't expired yet and there is still work for you to do.. Isn't it great knowing that no matter how many times you've messed up
There is a first time for everything, and this was the year I tried my hand at cooking a turkey -- not a whole turkey, it was a turkey breast. But nonetheless, it was a turkey.
As I shopped this week for items to fill up some of the Operation Christmas Child boxes we would be making this weekend at Greater Love Baptist, I thought about how the simplest of toys would bring such joy to those kids who would be receiving a box this Christmas. Operation Christmas Child is a nonprofit program which provides gifts to needy children throughout the world.
So begins the month of thankfulness.
This week's recipe, a chicken melt sandwich, is a man's meal, and it is compliments of my husband, Kevin.. As some of you know, we are expecting our first child and my cravings haven't gotten too wild or too frequent yet, but I have had a couple of them. With
Christian artist Heather Williams recently released a new song titled, "God Is Still God." I've read several interviews concerning her message in the lyrics of the song and I couldn't agree with her more. She says it all in some of her lyrics that go like this:. "He's been
