Grilled & Glazed Carrots were part of this last weekend grilling kabobs and vegetables.  My husband is a big fan of Carrots, so I try to cook them as often as I can.

As our Lord, we can trust Him to lead us down the right path every day. Psalm 48:14 says that God will be our guide even unto death! How wonderful to know that we have a guide to get us from one destination in life to the next. When my husband, Dave, and I visit a new place, we often hire a guide. Once we decided to explore by ourselves, but we quickly discovered that this was a complete waste of time. We spent most of the day lost, desperately trying to find our way back. Sometimes I think we treat life the same way Dave and I treated that trip. It's always easier to follow an experienced guide than to wander aimlessly on your own. Instead of going your

Mother's Lettuce Tomato Chop Salad {Granny's Recipe}

Lettuce Tomato Chop Salad when you want a go-to salad, and you want one that has simple ingredients and as few as possible, lettuce, tomatoes and mayonnaise or miracle whip.  That's it!  For my go to salad, I always think of my  Mother's Lettuce Tomato Chop Salad.    I served this salad with our meatloaf we had a couple of weeks ago.

A Southern Classic! Strawberry Sheet Cake With Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting {Granny's Recipe}

Strawberry Sheet Cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting is an easy, quick version of the Strawberry Cake from the sixties my Mother made.  She used the classic ingredients, white cake mix, strawberry jello, and a carton of sweetened frozen strawberries.
