I have 2 family friendly Halloween dishes to get this season started off right! It’s hard to find ideas that are not sweet and that fit the Spooky theme, but these are a Scary match. Both are super easy and fun to make, and you can get the family involved or you can surprise them with these Frighteningly Fun Foods.

Once a month the ladies in my church, and all women in the area are invited and welcome, and we get together to learn, socialize – and eat of course.
At one of the meetings we were presented the same information given at a Multi Faith Leaders centered on Domestic Violence Training.
I found it so informative and pertinent, that I asked for permission to pass it onto you. I have also included other information I found while doing some research on this important subject.
I hope you will read it and pass it on to anyone and everyone you can. You never know who is suffering in silence and just does not have the information of where to turn for help. Possibly you, or someone you know is the abuser and wants to change, there is also help. This is the first in this series.
The weather is still gorgeous and so lets take advantage of getting together with family or friends this weekend. I have the perfect recipes for you to pick from, or make them all! The marinated kabobs are scrumptious and mouthwatering and work really well with beef and chicken. Both are amazing, you might want to make both. The Asian chicken pairs well with thigh meat, and economical too. The creamy potato salad is classic, and the German Potato salad has no mayo so you don’t have to worry about it sitting in the heat. Yummy baked beans, need I say more!? To finish it off, I brought along some decadent brownies because what’s better than chocolate! ENJOY!!!

Tawni has another very informative and useful post in our LOST ART OF SELF RELIANCE Series. She is addressing her top list of 30 items that are a MUST have and also ideas of where to store them all — very cleverly I might add.
Thank you Tawni for all the effort you have put into this critical topic and educating us so we can be better prepared for anything that may come along.
This is seriously the BEST chili ever! Full bodied in flavor, packed with hearty layers of rich robust seasoning that will satisfy and leave you feeling content. I have a secret ingredient that is the underlying reason this is so fabulous. I hope you will come give this a try. The recipe is HERE.
However, there is also stress that is brought on by events and circumstances that others create which are completely out of our control.
What can be done to get relief? How can we feel we have power over our own life? What do we do to feel peace, God’s spirit and joy even through trials and times of hardships?
I have THREE simple daily rituals that will reduce our stress and change our entire attitude, even when hardships seem to smother and crush our very life breath.

I do LOVE a good sandwich and one day I had a hankering for a panini. They are terrific to have when family are coming in at different times due to sports, extracurricular activities, meetings, etc., you know they will still have a good meal that’s hot and satisfying. I created this one and the meat can be made ahead and refrigerated a day or two before, or even frozen for a few months. This panini is so good because the meat has amazing flavor; and when paired with the traditional Cuban sandwich ingredients — it’s a home run!
I attended a class on stress and the ways of increasing personal effectiveness and how to live a happier life.
Mr. Miller brought up some very interesting points that I had never thought of, and which have consequently sunk deep in my soul; and maybe this will resonate with you. When you have stress, what causes it? What do you do to get relief? What is the Savior’s way?
It’s the weekend and time for a bit of baking! I have some easy recipes that are delish and perfect for breakfast, snacks or dessert. All have cinnamon as a common ingredient, welcoming the beginning of fall and ringing out summer.

My sister Jody, who is the queen of clean is back with another installment in the LOST ART OF CLEANING series. This post is all about how to clean walls. It’s not difficult if you know the tricks, and Jody shares hers with us. Oh, you are going to LOVE her brillant idea of how to use a washcloth in place of a swiffer! She’s a genius! A huge thank you Jody:)

This salad is sssoooo good. You will crave it, want it, make it once a week! It’s healthy, satisfying and so tasty. The combination of flavors from the roasted corn easily done in your oven to the crunch of fresh veggies. Add the bit of sassy from the dressing which makes this an off the charts amazing salad that is easily for a crowd or for individual plates.
