It's the most wonderful time of the year - right!? Or, are you stressed out about the meal that you have to cook next week for the group of people that you are trying to impress?
Our Monday night bible study is wrapping up 1 Peter by Jen Wilkin next week at our annual Friendsgiving Feast. Last week, Jen taught 1 Peter Chapter 4 to us and her words could not have come at a more appropriate time.
"Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling"
This dip is perfect for this unusual Fall heat!
Let me say, I love this dip but I do not love this weather! I have worn my summer clothes out and I'm ready for the transition to cool Fall weather.
This dip is super easy and doesn't require you to use a hot oven! It's just layers of refried beans, sour cream, lettuce, cheese and taco sauce. Told ya it was easy! Serve with tortilla chips and you're set.
Speaking of Fall, we have started our new Fall study! We are doing 1 Peter by Jen Wilkin and we are absolutely loving it. Jen's teaching style is new to all of us but it is stretching us and we are learning a ton with her.
An easy and delicious make-ahead dessert for your next get-together!
You can have your cakes and cookies...I'll take the pie!
Especially this pie.
I love desserts that you can make ahead and the longer this pie sits in the fridge, the more the lemon flavor develops. YUM! This pie is so creamy and the perfect dessert for summer.
I love that this recipes calls for a Nilla Wafer crust. It puts a little different spin on the pie and I like it even better than the traditional graham cracker crust.

Hope you enjoy!

Sprinkles…Funfetti…Buttercream frosting. These are a few of my favorite things! When I found this recipe with all of them, I knew I had to try it.
Turns out – these are just as tasty as they are FUN! The first time I made these, I put sprinkles on top. The second time, I added a can of Funfetti frosting because, clearly, you just can’t go wrong with a tub of frosting and extra sprinkles! This definitely made them even more delicious.
Not to mention, they are super simple to make. You don’t even need to get your mixer out! You can mix these up quickly and when you pop them in the oven, you’re only left with one bowl to clean.
Throw that back-of-the-box recipe away!
Not to hurt anyone's feelings but these aren't your mama's Rice Krispie Treats. These are made with extra marshmallows....and extra butter. Oh man.
I tried to add green sprinkles to these to make them a little festive for St. Patrick's Day but they dissolved into the marshmallows and just seemed to add a little crunch - still fun I guess!
One time, I dyed the treats pink for Valentine's Day and it was a disaster. They ended up looking like raw hamburger patties. Drew came home and saw them on the cake stand and demanded I throw them away.
So, lessons learned: extra marshmallows + butter are good! Pink food coloring + Rice Krispie Treats...not so good.
Popcorn + Netflix Marathons
My Husband + The ESPN Channel
Pink + Valentine's Day
Coffee + Quiet Time
So...do you see where I'm going here? All of these combinations are great but there is one combination that just can't be beat...
Chocolate + Peanut Butter
If you're anything like me, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were always on your Christmas Stocking list, your Easter Bunny list, your Valentine's Day list and any other list when appropriate.
You just can't beat this combination - especially when it comes in cake form. I was trying out some new recipes a few weeks ago and this one was the clear winner. The cake starts with a cake mix (you're welcome) and the icing comes together in under 5 minutes. I keep trying to think of other things to smear this icing on. Apples? Graham crackers? A spoon?
I think you'll love this combination and this cake!
Uh oh - now you can make these tasty chips at home!
I apologize, in adavance, for sharing this recipe with y'all.
You always see tater chips on restraunt menus, and if you're like me, you order them every now and then. They are just SO good. They are like fries - but a million times better.
I decided to make the chips for Drew and I on Monday night to eat while we watched the National Championship game. I fixed Homemade Ranch and Touchdown Taco Cups as well.
One of my very favorite Christmas songs is “I Heard the Bells On Christmas Day.” This song was composed first as a poem on December 25, 1864 by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. A few years ago, our worship pastor told us the story behind the poem. Since I heard the backstory, this song quickly rose to the top of my Christmas playlist.
1861 was a year of personal and national tragedy for Longfellow and his family. On April 12, 1861 the opening shots of the American Civil War were fired. In July 1861 Henry’s wife, Fanny, was giving her daughter a haircut in the library of their home. After trimming some of her daughter’s hair, Fanny decided to preserve the clippings in sealing wax. She began to melt the bar of wax with a candle but a few drops fell onto her dress – immediately wrapping her in flames. Fanny tried to protect her daughter by running into Henry’s study in the next room where he tried to extinguish the flames with a rug. Failing to stop the fire with the rug, he tried to smother the flames by throwing his arms around Fanny - severely burning his face, arms, and hands.

Remember the good ol' days when the only trash talkin' on your Facebook page was between a Carolina and a Clemson fan?
Can we get back to that?
This election has been so divisive and I've heard scathing comments and words from both sides. Over the past few days I've thought about my friend, Paul, and his letter to the church at Ephesus.
These cookies are buttery, brown sugary, chocolate-y, YUMMY.
THESE ARE MY FAVORITE COOKIES OF ALL TIME.
I like to bake them until they are golden on the outside and just brown in the center. They get nice and crispy on the edges - perfection. Drew, on the other hand, likes to take them out while the center is still a little gooey. Either way, these cookies are so good!
