Josi Kilpack's new book Key Lime Pie

Here's a sneak peek of Key Lime Pie:

When Sadie Hoffmiller's new friend, Eric Burton, receives word that his missing daughter's body may have been found in Florida, he immediately packs his bags. Sadie is determined to stay home and prove to everyone that she is not a busybody. But when she senses Eric is hiding something, Sadie is compelled to take action. Before she knows it, she's in the heart of Miami, trying to piece together a trail that might just give Eric the answers he's so desperately searching for. In the process, Sadie finds herself in the company of some colorful characters and some good ol' southern cooking. But despite the drama and intrigue, all Sadie really wants is to go home ... as soon as she does just one more thing.

    Includes eight new mouthwatering recipes, tested and approved by the official bakers of Sadie's Test Kitchen.
    Available for pre-order from DeseretBook

Hard Times

I saw this picture on another blog. I do believe that Christ gives us hard times so that we can learn and grow. Though those hard times seem so difficult and challenging and tend to try the patience that I have. I do feel peace in the end as I accomplish the hard task that was set before me and learn to grow from it.

I hope everyone is able to have a wonderful weekend of fun!

Healthy Eating

I have been on spring break this week and I do believe that the weather that I am experiencing in Utah is not normal weather for the lovely month of April. Yesterday we had snow on the ground that lasted for at least half of the day. The backyard might have had it all day if our wonderful dog had not played out there. I am starting to wonder where all the beautiful April weather we normally get has gone.

I visited with my aunt last week and found out something really awesome that I think lots of people will enjoy. She is really into healthy eating. So She uses lots of grains that I have never heard of before. She has this fun blog that has recipes that her family has tried with her favorite grains. You can visit her Grain Crazy blog Here.

Have a wonderful and beautiful week!
