Prayer Chain

   I have decided to start a Prayer Chain here on my page.  God calls us to pray for one another so I am providing a way for you to list your prayers and encourage everyone to come and pray for each request. 

prayer chain, praying for one another, prayer requests, God answers prayers, prayer wall

    As I said before, all you need to do is scroll to the bottom of this post and in the "comments" post your prayer request.  After you list your prayer request, please take time to say a prayer for other people who have posted also.  Comment to them and let them know you prayed for them.  
    
    Please come back each day or every few days or even once a week and pray for those in need.  Also, once your prayer is answered, come back and give us a praise report.  We would love to hear them.  
     
    I want to pray for you.  My family wants to pray for you too.  How can we pray for you today?

Hewing

 
Hewing, how-to video, timber framing, do it yourself, DIY

     My oldest son, Bub, loves to work outside and enjoys making things.  He is all about doing things the "old fashioned" way and hates using power tools.  He enjoys it and is quite good at it.  We recently shared Part One of a video that he made on "hewing lumber".  I think you will find it quite enjoyable and learn a lot from him.

    Enjoy it!

Breakfast Pancake Tacos

  Anyone can make plain pancakes but sometimes the kids get bored with just pancakes and that is when we make the protein packed Breakfast Pancake Tacos!   (Okay, to be honest they are just pancakes that have peanut butter smeared on them and then I fold them over like a taco but Ronny thinks it is super cool to eat a breakfast taco so give me the win!)  Shhhh!!!!

    Just make up a batch of pancakes.

Dehydrating Citrus Zest

   I love to bake and often times when I come across a recipe, it will call for some citrus zest and I never have it on hand.  I don't keep lemons or limes laying around much either so I decided to zest some citrus fruits and dehydrate them so I have them on hand whenever I need them.

   Orange zest and lemon zest are usually used in quick breads and fruit breads.  All the different citrus zests are great for decorating the tops of breads and cakes and adds just the simplest of citrus flavoring that really makes a difference.

    To create your own zest is super simple.  Using a citrus zester or a vegetable peeler, just remove the "skin" of your lemons, limes and oranges.  Stop before you get to the white of the fruit.

      Place the "zest" onto your dehydrator trays and start the dehydrator.  The zests are ready when they are completely dry and brittle.  It can take about 14-16 hours.    I then place the dried zest into a small mason/canning jar until I am ready to use it.  

   To use, just place the zest into a grinder and grind into a powder or pinch the zest between your fingers to break it up into small pieces.  Add into your dishes as you would fresh zest.  If a recipe calls for the zest of one lemon, lime or orange, just use 1 tsp. of this dehydrated and dried zest.
