I want to share a remarkable true story of a courageous woman winning a husband. I pray this will edify and encourage each and everyone of you that is living in a very difficult marriage. I am not speaking to those in an abusive situation! Please go to a safe place and get help.
There is a short 2 minute video in this post.
[I have been eagerly building my repertoire of gluten-free recipes, so when I tried and really loved Diana’s wonderful almond flour fudge brownies, it seemed natural to ask her to guest post their baking journey and her recipe. I used Honeyville blanched almond flour. I love that it stores well in the freezer and has the skins removed by a quick soaking to cut down on phytic acid.]
I don’t believe there are many things that taste as good as a freshly baked loaf of bread, slicing into its blistered crackling crust, warm from the oven, and then smothering it with golden butter. Love. That’s what it is. I absolutely love bread but as I’ve grown older, I’ve found that I don’t digest it as well as I used to.
[I spoke with Tamara Rubin of Lead Safe Mama today and learned a lot about where lead is found. The call was sparked by my post on FB Is Your Crock-Pot Leaching Lead? In her non-argumentative way, she taught us all on that thread a few things. Anyway, you know I love to learn, and so I found out about my mom’s old dishes.]
Having been a child myself in the early 50s, there are classic books I feel should never be neglected in a child’s reading repertoire.
Though I don’t have the space to mention them all, these were the stuff of our children’s early homeschool reading aloud experience. They are all still around and available today because they strike a chord in all who read them – parent and child alike.
They set an enriching foundation in the heart and mind of children age 2 through 7 or 8. In my opinion, reading aloud should continue even after a child has mastered reading on his or her own and beyond.
Parent – be honest – you’ve only got so much time for reading aloud with your children! The last thing you want to do is choose a dud. If you are new to this, I hope this reading list makes the choosing easier and provides many delightful reading hours for you and your child! Enjoy!

Are eggs bad for you, good for you, or somewhere in between?
The answer will be different depending on when you live. I was raised eating lots of eggs in the 50s but was taught they were bad for you in nursing school in the 70s and carried that thinking into my job as a heart nurse. For the past 4 decades or so, those in the health industry strongly recommended limiting eggs in the diet because of the amount of cholesterol in the yolks, even promoting crazy products such as Eggbeaters.
