A Few Ina Garten Favorite Recipes

I love the blessing of cooking food for other people.  When I recently made a meal for a family whom we love, I knew that they were fans (especially one of their daughters) of Ina Garten’s recipes. So I made up a menu of mostly all her recipes and set to work.  I made one BIG blunder..,read on to see what I did!

Here’s what I made:

Power Over My Irritants

I’ll never forget one problem we had with our kitchen sink that I thought would drive me nuts!  The faucet leaked, and though the water was turned off, one drop after another made its way downward into the sink.

**Plink**Plink**Plink**Plink.  All day.
All night.  **Plink **Plink**Plink.

The wonderful man in my house went to Lowe’s and bought a washer for the spigot and fixed the irritant.  Hallelujah!

Do you ever hear irritating words pouring out your mouth as I do?  Proverbs 19:13 says that the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.  Yes, just like the **Plink**Plink****Plink in my kitchen sink, the frustrations that cause me to be contentious make me that irritating.
What a blessing to remember that Christ died for all those irritants and Christ died for my contentious spirit and ugly words!  The second verse to The Power of the Cross says:
Oh, to see the pain
Written on Your face,
Bearing the awesome weight of sin.
Ev’ry bitter thought,
 
Ev’ry evil deed
Crowning Your bloodstained brow.
Wow.  Every ugly thought I’ve had caused the Lord to have to die.  Every wicked word passed over my lips He paid for! My sin was fixed by a different kind of “washer!”  It was taken care of by the Blood of the Lamb of God!
CHORUS:
This, the pow’r of the cross:
Christ became sin for us;
Took the blame, bore the wrath—
We stand forgiven at the cross.
Thank the Lord for the power of the cross.  It paid for my contentious spirit and sinful words.  I’m undeserving.  He is wonderful!
We can live guilt-free, victorious lives because of the power of the cross!

Honey-Orange Yogurt

If I could eat any breakfast I wanted every single day, it would be French Toast.  However, I try to only eat something like that once a month or so! For health’s sake I try to eat yogurt regularly.  I’ve gotten to where I really do enjoy it, but it can get a little boring!  I’ve recently discovered a little way to spruce it up and make it absolutely Continue reading “Honey-Orange Yogurt”
