Winter Comfort Foods

Sandra Lee has made a living sharing recipes that are “Semi-Homemade.” This means you don’t have to start from scratch to come up with something that tastes like it’s homemade! Box cake mixes are really versatile and useful. Some of them are really better that the consistency of a cake made from scratch!

Well, here’s a biscotti recipe made from a brownie mix. Biscotti looks really impressive and intimidating. Impressive, it is! But there’s no reason to be intimidated by this treat. This cookie is baked twice, giving it its pretty shape and crunchy texture. A sweet friend of mine shared her recipe with me and it is soooo yummy! Take a peek…

Brownie Biscotti

22-oz. pkg brownie mix

8 T butter

2 lg eggs

1 C all-purpose flour

3/4 C nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and roll into 2 small loaves, approx. 8″ x 2″. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes. Slice diagonally and place on sides. Bake again for 10-12 minutes. Store in Zip-lock bag.

With all the flu bugs that travel from house to house during the winter, it’s nice to enjoy the comfort of a hot bowl of chicken soup. However, if you’re sick, you don’t feel like going to much trouble! Here’s a quick fix soup that will make you or your loved one feel better soon, but this is so good, you’ll be fixing it when everyone’s well and you need a simple lunch!

Chicken and Rice Soup:

In a saucepan mix a can of Cream of Chicken soup

1 can of chicken stock (instead of milk)

1 cup of cooked Rice (I usually cook up extra and keep some in the freezer for this soup)

If you have cooked chicken from a Rotisserie chicken or leftovers from another meal, you can add that too, if desired. Heat until hot.
I trust you’ll try these and enjoy them as much as we do! I pray it will bring some winter comfort in the middle of this season!

Boones Creek ladies, let me remind you of our Ladies’ Winter Tea scheduled for Monday, January 31st. Be sure to invite an unsaved lady or unchurched lady to attend with you. I am so excited about the night. The theme is Whiter than Snow and will be reflected in the decorations downstairs. Then we’ll go upstairs for the special music and drama, When Jesus comes. Please be praying that God will use this to bring glory to Himself and that ladies will come to Christ Monday night!

See you in church!

With love,
