Pinterest Recipes

Yep, I have been going onto Pinterest for about 1 month now. I have not really been interested in the food. Well, up till now. This is my first two recipes I tried off of Pinterest.com.  They tasted so fantastic and I was amazed at the outcome.  You see, I'm not much of a cook. I use alot of boxed foods, easy to prepare, very bad for your body.  One day after my husband brought in his garden bounty of zucchini, tomotoes, onions and more,  I thought "hey, I better find a way to use this stuff or it will go bad".   So off to Pinterest.com I went...

 I am a chicken in the kitchen so my recipes that I use have to be simple or forget it and these were very simple. On the left is a zucchini recipe that included: zucchini, tomatoes, onions, parmesan cheese, home made croutons (yeah I made it. LOL!) salt/pepper, garlic and walla! Yummy! Here's the link for the recipe: http://prouditaliancook.blogspot.com/2010/08/zucchini-tomato-gratin.html .  If you love Italian food your gonna love this chef's recipes. Yum! (oh see how I love red/white, just had to remind you of that, tee, hee)
 This chicken recipe is simply brown mustard, honey, garlic, salt/pepper,  then grilled. Here let the chef tell you how to prepare it.  Here's her link:http://www.sixsistersstuff.com/2012/02/grilled-honey-mustard-chicken-recipe.html  Go check her out, great recipes!
This pic above is the left over chicken from the other night.  It was so tasty in my salad. This salad is a mix of left over grilled chicken, tomatoes, red onion, lettus and cucumber.  Plus I grated parmesan cheese in it too! If you can, shred your cheese, it is so much fresher tasting and usually better quality than pre-shredded cheeses. 

Well that is it for now. Hope you can check out Pinterest.com and be inspired.
I know it has inspired me. 

Till next time.  Happy dinning!

God bless, Cathy

Good Monday to You!

I hope you all are having a great Monday today.  It is pretty hot here in West Virginia, up in the 90s, but we are hanging in there dispite the hot temps.  I just wanted to show you a couple of things I have been working on.

As you can see I have been working on Wynter dolls.   I sell my dolls wholesale and we have to be working on items months in advance so the prim stores can be ready for you prim shoppers come holiday time.

 This is my latest snowman ornie creation.  You can buy him in my Etsy shop here: www.snugglebugblessings.etsy.com

So that's just a few of my favorite things.  Well just a few of my dolls. I know you may think, "I'm just not ready to think of  Wynter yet" as hot as it is here in good ole West Virginia, that seems to be all I think about.

 Hey, thanks for stopping by. 

Till next time...may His blessings be with you, God's guidence go before you, and His love surround you.

God bless, Cathy.

He Does Answer Prayer

Most of you that have followed my blog know of the ups and downs I have experienced as a co-depedant to an alcoholic. It has not been pretty for most of my posts.  My dreary, dark blog has set the pace for how I have lived most of my entire married life.  But God is good.  Over a year ago I stepped into a little church on a hill with no expectations.   My friend Carolyn,  whom God has used in my life so many dark and broken times, had invited me to this tiny little church.  When I walked in and we started singing and worshipping God, I could feel such love over take me.  Not the kind that makes you wild and crazy but a peaceful, warm reassuring kind.  It was God.  I have soooo many stories to tell you but want to share this. 

God spoke to a man named Gene and told him to start praying for my husband and he did regularly.  My church started praying for my husband regularly as well as praying for my family.  My husband started to come to church...regularly, even though he was still drinking.  Satan had his grip.  I began to cry out to God.  My neighbor down the street named Alice (we all call her St. Alice) started ministering to me on how to love my husband inspite of his addiction...that was hard, but I saw changes, good changes. Still the drinking continued.

God works in mysterious ways...don't you agree?!? I have been asked not to publicly say what stopped my husband's drinking, but it has stopped and for quite sometime now.  He is growing in the Lord, reading his bible, going to church.  Our marriage is much better. God is good and He answers prayer. 

I want you to know that God wants the best for you, that's right, YOU! He doesn't wish harm on you, or delight in bad things happening to you.  He's just waiting,waiting for you to simply ask Him for help.  If you are a parent you know you love helping your children, God is no different.  So I pray today that you will ask Him for His help.   Tell Him what you need, the heart ache you feel or the loneliness that overcomes you.  When you ask Him for His help, believe He will help, just like your little children or grandchildren look up to you with their big, trusting eyes,  thats what God wants from you.  Then some day soon, you will be writing a post like mine.

More to come...by for now, 

Hugs, Cathy
