HUMMUS CHILI

April 23, 2015

Chili is one frequently occurring weeknight dinner in our house. I also go for it a lot when cooking for gluten free friends. My recent way of livening things up in the chili pot – adding the rich, nutty flavor of hummus!

MY LIFE FOR YOURS

April 21, 2015

David has mowed through Doug Wilson’s family series. I too love these, as well as his wife, Nancy’s, books. When I tell you the premise of My Life for Yours you can see it could have been painfully banal and corny. However, I found it creative and valuable rather than cliche.

MY LIFE FOR YOURS from Rachel Schultz copy

Each chapter speaks about a room in the home and how Christ transforms it. As the book puts it, “The Word became flesh and bone, and the gospel becomes our porch, dining room, bedroom and kitchen.” Don’t you just instantly love the title? My life for yours. For other stay at home wives and moms, a book like this is a treasure for illuminating and shaping the four walls we spend hour after hour and day after day in. My favorite chapters were (no surprise) the dining room and kitchen. And also, “The Junk Drawer!”

BLUE CHEESE, BACON & PEAR PIZZA

April 15, 2015

The combination of these three ingredients is one of my favorites in all of cooking. It was only a matter of time before it became a pizza. David, who normally does not like fruit on his pizza, even appreciated the sweetness of the pear along with these savory flavors.
