Use fresh rhubarb, now in season!

With fresh rhubarb and strawberries in the stores now, this is it! My mom cooked with a lot of rhubarb, because she’d cross the river and get it free from the orchards in our area.

The cake layer just makes this dessert! All you need are these batter ingredients: Flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, salt, milk, and eggs!

The power of words

Think about the power of words around your table. Instead of talking politics or faith issues, how about trying new conversations?

Recently we decided to talk about the words we’ve been called in the past, or even words that defined ourselves in the past.

Reject the negative, and replace it with a positive word.

This is life affirming, and a simple exercise that gets us thinking about ourselves and others in a positive light.

Conversations matter!

Good food and good conversation go hand in hand!
