Chocolate Pizzelles

Pizzelles are one of my favorite cookies, but for some reason growing up we only made them for Christmas. A few days before Easter last week, I decided to pull out my pizzelle iron and make chocolate pizzelles for my family. They are so delicious and make such a pretty presentation...




Our Easter Celebration...

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebration.  We did...with a house full of people, 17 in total and it was wonderful.  AND we were finally able to meet our daughter's "fiance." They met down at school in Florida last fall and with my Colonel gone this past year we weren't able to meet Tyler until this weekend. 

He came up to spend Easter with us and gave Olivia a ring with our whole family here on Sunday.  My sister-in-law makes these amazing cake pops and has a business called Behr Pops. She brought some cake pops for our dessert and Tyler put the ring on one of them.  


So now we have a wedding to plan!

Chocolate Covered Peeps...

Easter is in a few days and ever since our daughter was a little girl there have been Peeps in our house around this time of year.  I think my mom first introduced Olivia to these sugary marshmallow treats and she loves them.  

Just a few weeks ago our church had a fundraiser to help raise money for a mission's trip 16 people are going on in June...our son is one of them.  My good friend, Jani, made these amazing Chocolate Covered Peeps and I knew I would have to make some for my family...

Easter Bread...A Family Tradition

For years my sister has been making Easter Bread for her family and always shares a small loaf with us to also enjoy.  I love Easter Bread.  It's so festive and makes such a pretty presentation and lovely gift to bring to the hostess for Easter Sunday dinner.  

Last year was the first year I made it for my family and I definitely plan on making it again this year.  This is my sister's recipe.  There are quite a few recipes out there that use a sweet glaze or icing to spread over the bread, but that makes it more like a dessert and not bread.  This bread is delicious warm from the oven or toasted with butter.

Zechariah 9:9

Scripture Sunday...



I love finding scriptures from the Old Testament that tell of the coming Messiah.


Today is Palm Sunday, the day our Lord was welcomed triumphantly into Jerusalem...

Have YOU welcomed HIM into your heart?

If you would like more information, please send me a message.
I would love to help you find forgiveness and peace this Easter season.
