Chicken Tenders

While working on the ultimate fried chicken recipe, we received a generous donation of 30 pounds of chicken breasts for our Tuesday night Party for the Hungry in Stroudsburg.  Isn’t God good?  This gave me the amazing opportunity to tweak the recipe.  While this is a chicken tender recipe, it may actually work well for […]

AT LONG LAST — LENTIL SOUP!!!!

FINALLY!!!  IT’S HERE!!! I know I promised this recipe back at the end of February, but honestly, after completing the Daniel Fast, I really wasn’t interested in any meals that did not include meat.  Now that I am past that, and the fact that my wife keeps returning to the Daniel Fast as her fast […]

Lentil Soup Recipe coming

About a week ago, I posted on my Facebook page that I would have my lentil soup recipe posted shortly.  I apologize for the delay.  I went to make it and realized too late that I had half the lentils I would normally use, so I had to make modifications that worked, but was not the actual […]

Happiness Is Coconut Shrimp

My family joined with our church in a three week Daniel Fast this past January, and I am grateful for the mighty move of God that took place during the fast.  Most of us experienced major breakthroughs as a result of consecrating that time in prayer and Bible study, while bringing our flesh into subjection […]

Arroz con Pollo – Panamanian Style

Okay, I promised my mother’s world famous Arroz con Pollo, so now I give it.  I made modifications to my mother’s recipe, preferring all natural products to some of the Goya substitutes she used as I was growing up, but overall I love my version.  In fact, I had a very good friend from my […]

All Purpose Meat Seasoning

Hello all.  It’s been a while.  I’ve been busy with home schooling my son, teaching two classes at our home school co-op, Train up A Child Christian Home Schoolers (TRACCHS), getting my catering business, Christian’s Bread of Life (CBL), up and running, in addition to so many other things that I find it hard to […]

Lasagna Part 2: The Sauce

In the midst of all the holiday preparations, I forgot to continue the lasagna saga. So much to do, so much to do! Please bear with me as you follow along. The ingredient picture is not complete as I tend to remember ingredients as I go along. The necessary items for my sauce are: 2 […]

Lasagna Part 1: Roasted Garlic

Holiday preparations are well underway.  I am especially excited about this Christmas because my brother, his daughter, Mira, along with my parents, are spending Christmas and New Year’s with us.  It will be their first time in Pennsylvania since they moved to Iowa in 2006 or 2007.  My niece is growing into a beautiful young […]
