    Buddy’s Mushroom Risotto

    I love Buddy V from Cake Boss, and when I found his video on youtube, he got me hooked on the idea.  The bummer is that his recipe on his YouTube channel is not correct, so I watched what he did and improvised a bit, but it’s mostly true to his video.  And no parsley!  I hate the hassle of buying parsley just for one meal, to just then get moldy in the fridge. I have made some adjustments to this recipe, so it’s not exactly his. I’m still writing up the recipe below   STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION inspired by Buddy V's YouTube Video

    How it Feels to Love Jesus

    Recently I have been trying to figure out how to explain and communicate my feelings and love for Jesus.  Unless you know Him, you don’t know what that feeling is like. Well today a FB friend of mine Joy Jenkins shared, almost by accident, a video with me. Normally I won’t watch a 30 min video in the morning before work.  But since I don’t hear from Joy very often, I figured it was something that I needed to listen to. This video brought tears to my eyes.  It perfectly expresses what it feels like to love Jesus! Just click below to play: Hope this moves you as much as…

    Chinese Chicken with Carrots and Shiitake Mushrooms

    When I was a kid, my stepfather used to cook Chinese food all the time.  And one of my favorite recipe’s was one he called “Chicken with fish sauce”.  But I never liked the name, so I have renamed it and adapted it to be my own. This recipe was originally from the Craig Clairborne and Virginia Lee “The Chinese Cookbook”. I have modified it a lot and made more sauce.  This dish goes great over rice! Delicious spicy main dish that everyone will love - Christina Hills

    Chinese Chicken Thighs with Ginger Garlic Tomato Sauce

    This is the recipe for the dish my step father used to make from the Craig Clairborne Cookbook.  I have adapted it slightly.   I tried it in the slow cooker, but it’s really not as good.  Plus since it only cooks 30-35 min, the stove top is fine and makes cleaning up easier. I really like the Pomi brand of tomatoes the best.  But you can use any kind of can of  chopped tomatoes.   Print Recipe Chinese Chicken Thighs with Ginger Garlic Tomato Sauce you make this on the stove top, Course Main Dish Cuisine Chinese Prep Time 15 min Cook Time 30 min Servings people Ingredients 2-3…

    Lemonade Jello

    I loved Jello as a kid!  My mom use to make it for me in the 70’s all the time.  As an adult I still like Jello, but don’t want the added sugar. So here is my recipe for home made lemonade jello.  I like to use honey instead of sugar, but if you prefer sugar or any other sweetener use what you prefer. I bought the box of envelopes, but you can use a bigger box of Knox Gelatine and just measure it out.

    Beef Stew with Guinness Beer

    This recipe is so easy!  it comes together fast, and the Guinness makes it hearty.  It originally came from an instagram post that my husband found, but then I modified it a lot. What I like about this recipe is that it’s fast and easy to make.  The key is to cook the onions and garlic first. But you do not need to bother cooking the potatoes first.  Using good quality ingredients will make this taste the best. I like Pomi tomoatoes and I tried for the first time frozen organic beef bone broth.  But really you can use any beef broth or chopped tomatoes.  This dish is less fatty…

    Celebrating the Epiphany!

    If you don’t know what the Epiphany is, it’s a Christian holiday also referred to as “3 Kings Day”.  This is the day people celebrate that Jesus was visited by the three kings who were Gentiles. Yeah I know, we typically think of the three kings visiting Jesus in the stable but the Bible doesn’t ever say that! The Feast of the Epiphany Explained in 2 min  This short video above explains what the Epiphany is. In the book of Luke, chapter 2, the Bible tells the story of the Roman Caesar issuing a tax. To pay this tax, you had to travel back to the place you were…

    Kanye West’s Passion for Jesus

    About a month ago I discovered the music of Kanye West and his album: “Jesus is King”.  This began when his latest album was released and I started hearing about it. You can read my first article about Kanye West’s conversion here Since then I have been overcome by his passion for Christ, which I too share. I love how he expresses it, how he is bold,  and how he is opening doors for so many people to know Jesus! Watch this Video & You Will Feel his Passion! (Here is a shorter version of this clip on Facebook if you prefer to watch it there or share it) And…
