Pray Cook Blog is the new name of my blog featuring recipes and scriptures that are part of my day.  I changed the name to make it easier for folks to remember.  As this blog has gained viewers it is a bit cumbersome to share and remember such a long blog name as While My Daily Bread Body And Soul.  I love it and really appreciate when you take time to forward my blog and share with others.  I now have followers from around the country and it is fun and exciting to see the viewership growing.  Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!  You will also notice that my recipe is in a new format.  If you want to print the recipe you can print it without all this rambling attached.  Do you like this format?

Today’s recipe is an absolute favorite of mine.  I can count on it turning out perfect every time.  This is the time of year when Saturday and Sunday mornings can find everyone gathered around the table with laughter, good conversation and a special breakfast treat.  This is such a treat.  Enjoy!
