Today I want to take a moment to send our prayers to all those affected by to storms in Oklahoma. And, we are praying for all our Texas friend’s and family to stay safe today!
Sometimes ideas for my website come from my children. This morning Andrew asked me if we could have pancakes for lunch! Since Memorial Day is coming up, and seeing all the out-pouring of support and love from our fellow American’s to all the families in Oklahoma, I decided that today was a great day to celebrate America!
How to make Memorial Day Pancakes:
Budget Savy pancakes in a Box
Melting Baker’s Chocolates
After you mix your pancake mix according to directions, split it into two bowls, add your food coloring to one. Once they are finished, stack and cover with your favorite chocolates!
Have a safe Memorial Weekend.
May God Bless

We had a very busy weekend. From our friend’s 2 year old birthday party to dinner with new friends, and also business acquaintances. I was on short notice plus short of time to prepare dinner at our home. Have no fear. This dessert is super easy, super tasty, and super springy!
To make this scrumptious cake: Buy an angel food cake loaf, cut it in half, ice it with whip cream, and top with strawberries, drizzle some chocolate (ooh yeah!), pace the top half on top and drizzle chocolate on top. I used sugar free everything and added some whip cream before serving!!! Delicious and cost about $2.50 to make.

It has been over a year since we volunteered at the Ronald McDonald house in Lubbock, TX. Since moving back to Idaho, I finally reached out to the RMDH in Boise Idaho and signed us up to cook a meal each month. I don’t volunteer for the personal attention. I volunteer to get the Ronald McDonald House attention. The Ronald McDonald House is a “home away from home” for families who have loved ones, children, in the hospital. Some of these kid’s never get to go home. I share pictures to hopefully inspire others to reach out and help in their community. There are so many people that need us. There are many organizations that survive off their volunteers. What are you waiting for?
