THANK YOU JESUS!!!!

My heart is FULL. My eyes are PUFFY.
I do not have the words to THANK Him.
As most of you know, I have been praying for a sweet little 6 year old girl who stole my heart last July. Her name is Kate McRae and last year she was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of brain cancer. Hopes were slim to none for a cure but we prayed...and prayed...and prayed...and we're still praying.
Precious Kate had her PET scan a couple days ago to see if there was any active cancer. I can't tell you how I've prayed for this girl along with hundreds of thousands of others who trust in the Lord. It's incredible. We have pleaded and begged the Lord to touch her with His healing hand.
Tonight, we got the news that the scan came back NEGATIVE! NO active cancer! It is dead! I have been crying for 2 hours now. Chris was so worried something was wrong when I came out to tell him the news. He too proclaimed that it is a miracle. My heart is overjoyed. I don't know when I have cried tears of joy like I am tonight. Thank you JESUS!!! He has heard our cries and has answered them. There is always that chance that it can come back but we are rebuking it in Jesus name. We are going to continue to pray for her complete healing, as if the cancer never existed! We are so thankful that the Lord is giving her more time here on earth...praying she has many more fruitful years to share here what the Lord has done in her life.
He is so good.
I could go on and on of the Lord's goodness towards us. Instead how about you take some time and reflect on the goodness and mercy He has shown towards you!!!
Check out her blog at www.prayforkate.com and you too will be crying tears of joy.
Thank you Lord. We do not deserve your love, we are so thankful...

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store! 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

As a busy mom who loves to cook and make delicious meals but also needs to stay on budget, I can do it all with Gordon’s Food Service!
If you have a big family or throw parties, this is the place to shop. 
We just did an end of summer party and I bought everything here. The meat selection in fresh and frozen is wonderful. 


And you see those peanut butter krispies?  To die for!  In the frozen section. Thank me later. 



You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe.

Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part.
