Never Alone

When life gets tough it's easy to feel like you're all alone; we can forget who is in control.  If that happens, just do what Jeremiah did! 

Lamentations 3:21,22  "This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope.  The Lord's loving kindnesses never cease, For His compassions never fail."

Cooking and Food Myths

Did you know that oatmeal pies are actually good for you? Ok, well maybe not, (just don't tell Amy, it will break her heart!), but here are some other myths about food and cooking to help you live a healthier life (taken from RealSimple.com):

Myth: Boiling Vegetables Lose the Nutrition

Although many green vegetables lose some nutrients when boiling or stewing them, minerals such as iron and potassium are usually still retained. They are also still a great source of fiber.

Myth: Never Rinse Mushrooms

Rinsing mushrooms is good, but when you soak them in water, they absorb too much liquid and release it onto your dish. A better bet is to use a "mushroom brush" or a paper towel.

Myth: Butter Goes Bad Without Refrigeration

Butter spoils, but not as quickly as other dairy products because it typically contains added salt, which kills a lot of bacteria. Even unsalted butter can last about a week, because it consists of natural salt to slow bacteria which causes it to spoil.
