About Me

I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

A day without prayer

I tried my hand at a new recipe today: Oatmeal cookies. They came like all good recipes from a family cookbook & I could not wait to bake them!

However when the timer went off and I went to take the cookies out if the oven, this is what I found.

Yuck! What had happened? The batter had looked right, it had even tasted good (hum..) moving right along now. I reviewed the recipe and noticed that I had forgotten 1 teaspoon baking soda. Who knew after cups if ingredients that not adding 1 teaspoon would keep the cookies from rising.

That's when God quietly spoke to my heart and reminded me that is exactly what happens to my day when I forget to start it with prayer.

So don't forget to add all the ingredients if your baking. Don't forget to add God to your day to be able to rise to the days challenges. Hope you have a blessed day!

Oatmeal cookie recipe:
1 C shortening
1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 C flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves & nutmeg
3 C quick cooking oats

Cream shortening & sugars. Add eggs & vanilla. Stir all dry ingredients together, then add to mix. Stir on oats last. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cookies are best if chewy, do take out of the oven before they get brown.
