Homemade Vanilla Cake

I have been on a quest to find the perfect homemade vanilla cake recipe to match the Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake”.  When it comes to moist, melt-in-your-mouth texture, no recipe can come close to Hershey’s in my humble opinion.  (For those who have tried to make this recipe with failed results, I will say that the most important direction on the recipe states to “mix for 2 minutes on medium speed before adding boiling water.”  This is  a [...]

Homemade Yogurt

If you own a slow cooker and happen to have some plain yogurt hiding in the back of your fridge along with some milk, you’re in luck!  You can take the dwindling remains of your yogurt and multiply it into a fresh batch of plain yogurt to be further changed into Greek yogurt, sour cream or a variation of cream cheese (aka Yo-cheese).  The health benefits are substantial and the ways to use homemade yogurt are only limited by [...]

What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done

If you’re looking for help with time management and productivity disciplines, I’d encourage you to look into Matt Perman’s “What’s Best Next: How the Gospel Transforms the Way You Get Things Done.”  While I have also benefited from some of the market’s best-sellers for this genre like David Allen’s “Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productive” and Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” Matt’s book offers a solid theological basis for why we should ultimately be [...]

Lemon-filled Olive Oil Lanterns

Follow us on YouTube Follow our Podcast After a recent conversation with Tim regarding our winter preparations, I started doing some research on inexpensive types of homemade candles or lamps.  Last year we had a horrible snow and ice storm dumping over a foot of snow on the roads and power lines.  Our property is at the end of the line, so any power outages means that we will be the last ones to have our power restored.  This [...]
