Split Pea and Sausage Soup

Soup makes me happy. Just recently, I took having soup at home to the next level and made homemade soup bread bowls. It was a very, very good day in our house....more

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce (milk, cream cheese, parmesan)

I'm going to be a little indulgent here and share a recipe that isn't made from much that comes in the Angel Food Ministries boxes with the exception of milk.  The only reason I feel I can share it is because it is relatively affordable for our area when I shop sales or at Aldi's....more

Oven BBQ Chicken (chicken)

When the weather is warm and we're spending time out in the yard, at least once a week one of our neighbors will grill barbecue chicken in their backyard.  The minute the scent hits my nose, I stop what I'm doing, inhale the wonderful fragrance as deeply as possible and then decide we MUST have barbecue chicken, too!  It's a bit odd, I know, but I'm okay with it....more

Broiled Fish Parmesan (fish, lemon)

I was never a huge fan of fish while I was growing up.  The only time we had fish in our house was during lent and that always consisted of fish sticks and french fries with tons of tartar sauce and ketchup.  Not the healthiest meal, but it served its purpose at the time!...more

Slow Cooker Sweet and Salty Aisian Beef (beef, rice)

We had a mini-snowstorm here yesterday.  After two days of rain and a nice thaw, the snow returned.  I typically don't mind the changing weather, but the hubby was away for two-days at a sheep shearing class.  I planned on having a nice hot beef dinner ready when he got home but changed my mind because the weather was going to make him late....more

What to Do with those Waffle Fries!!!

For two months recently, Angel Food Ministries included a huge 5-lb. bag of waffle fries in their Bountiful Blessings boxes.  Since we ordered 3 boxes, that means we ended up with 15-lbs. of waffle fries!!!...more

It's Time to Talk About It

I'm always amazed at how many people are afraid of one food in particular.  It's not big, threatening or harmful unless not prepared properly (which is quite easy, so no excuses).  The big, scary food is the DRY BEAN.  (cue scary music...dum, dum, duuuummmmm....)...more

Adding to Your Angel Food Groceries

You might be wondering just how much we buy from Angel Food Ministries.  Well, it depends on the month and the offerings!...more

Recipe to Use some of that Smoked Sausage!

I mentioned in a previous post how much I dreaded having to find a way to use sausage of any kind.  It's always been something I've avoided until we realized how much we benefit and save from ordering food through Angel Food Ministries.  So I committed myself to making the most of using everything I could in our food boxes.  This required some creative thinking on my part, but I think it payed off!!! ...more
