Do you know what my top two loves are in this whole world?? Call it cliché but #1 is our great, gracious, forgiving Lord. #2 is my wonderful family. Every day, the Lord reminds me of how very blessed I am and every day, I am able to enjoy my beautiful family. Every day, we have struggles but every day I am so very thankful for everything. God has encouraged me to stay positive and is always giving me reminders to stop doubting myself. Why does this matter to you? In the spirit of Thanksgiving – I am have a pretty sweet giveaway.
A few days ago, I got a wonderful call. It was from the Taste of Home Magazine writer. She was calling to do an interview with me. In July, I got a very surprising call from one of their editors. He told me they wanted to do a full blown Sunday dinner menu with three of my recipes! I honestly thought it was a joke. Basically from July-October was the testing phase. Taste of Home tests all of the recipes for their features and if my recipes “passed” the test kitchen, they would be in an upcoming feature. First off, the call itself was great but I didn’t expect to get a call back. However, I did. All of the recipes received great reviews from their test kitchens and I was notified that all of them would be featured!!! Boy was I surprised! The recipes will be in their Easter issue coming out late March/early April 2015. There will be SO many great recipes from people just like you and me. My recipes they are featuring are my Slow-Cooker Roasted Chicken, Snap Pea Salad and Scalloped Potatoes with Spinach and Mushrooms.
What I love about Taste of Home is that their recipes are tried, true, tasty recipes that use simple ingredients. I also love each little story from the recipe author that goes with the food. It lets the readers know why they love their recipes – whether it is healthy, a family tradition, etc. The recipes do not require you to be a master chef, just an everyday cook in your home or wherever. I’m hoping to see more and more recipes related to allergy friendly foods (my recipes being featured are!). I still keep my subscription with them current for inspiration, ideas or just plain great recipes!
