Autumn’s Best Cooked Apples

Buttermilk Biscuits & The Chief’s Legendary Gravy

My step-son Bryan was coming for a visit and he sent me a picture of a mile-high biscuit from a restaurant in California, commenting about the “best biscuit” he ever ate.  To a slightly competitive cook that was basically throwing down the gauntlet! Whenever the kids come home the Chief’s biscuits and gravy are always on the … Read more

Happy Friday!  I took this picture last year when visiting family in California.  When I read this scripture from Ephesians this morning I thought of the prickly cactus that can represent the hurtful things in our life like bitterness, anger and wrath.  But the little yellow bloom reminds me the Apostle Paul tells us to … Read more
