Standing in truth

I don't even know where to start or how to start this blog. I have a million things running though my mind. I'm frustrated, disgusted, sad and disappointed. I'm a very passionate person as y'all know. I hate politics and try to stay out of them but I can't ignore this one. California's Prop 8 to protect marriage between a man and a woman. I voted YES to keep it between a man and a woman. I voted TWICE, why? Because the first time riots broke out and people whined until it went back to court only for a liberal judge to overturn what the people had already spoken! We voted a second time and again it passed and again a judge has overturned it. Remind me again why I vote?! Where are my rights!? Equality, really?! So frustration is there and I am literally disgusted at people comments towards my view. You can call me a Jesus freak, you can call me a Christian who is ignorant, you can call me a naysayer....call me whatever you want. I DON'T CARE! I've heard it all today and you know what, it makes my eyes open up even more to see how disgusting this world is. It is a fallen place. God said it would be. If this world were perfect why would we need Him? People, I am not backing down. I have read the Word of God....it is real and there will come a day when every single person has to bow their knee before the Lord and we will be judged. Judge me, call me a Jesus freak. I am one. I love the Lord and I fear Him. I will not conform to the sins of this world to be "accepted". And by saying that in no way means that I don't sin. I sin daily but I will not fall into the lies that the world has made so many people believe. My heart is literally grieving for those who are so lost and so blind. I understand that many of those people will never realize how lost they are until their day comes and it makes me sick. How I long for all of those I know and love to see the truth and to live by it. I don't care what the world thinks of me. I'm not here to be like everyone else. I'm here to be a light to this dark and dying world because we ALL need a Savior and I will stand firm and stand for Him until the day the Lord comes to take me home.

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.
