I have been looking through my recipe books trying to come up with different recipes that my daughters can practice their kitchen skills on. This was one that I passed by many times. It just didn’t stand out much with ingredients so I didn’t think it would be that spectacular. Well guess what?? It was, […]
Welcome to our large family blog.
We are living life with 10 children with lots of love and joy. We live as simple and plain as we can be, but life with a visionary husband is definitely not so plain. Look around and see how we live and enjoy life.
These are a great spin on plain old boring tacos. A nice different flavor combination and something different to make. We all need variety in our dinners. Try this tonight, you won’t be disappointed. You will need to cook the following in a small pot over medium heat: 1 pound ground beef, cooked 1 can […]
This recipe was originally called “Jared’s casserole” but it has since been changed to sausage bowtie casserole. I didn’t think anyone would understand if I gave it that name.

In our family, pizza is a FAVORITE thing. We usually like to goto our local pizza buffet because they have so many different varieties that the family likes. Well this week, I decided to take on our local pizza place and copy some of their recipes. I was glad that I did. First things first, […]

The change: To write a letter This might sound simple because you think that it will “qualify” since you write emails and text friends with encouraging notes almost everyday. But I am talking about getting out that stationary—yes they do make it—and sit down and write an old fashioned letter to a friend. Why make […]
TIME Now that you know what to do, how about doing it?? Where do we find the time to do all of this? As I have stated in some of my videos, you just have to MAKE THE TIME. Think about all of the hours wasted, doing nothing? Think of the countless minutes, just sitting […]
