‘Feels Like Home’ Winter Recipes
As the weather turns colder, it becomes the time to pull out those tried and true winter-time recipes. You know, the ones that make us (or even keep us) warm on the inside. This is the time for the food that just feels like home.
Kirsten Holmberg and Elisa Morgan from the God Hears Her blog have shared some of their families personal recipes. These are the ones that are good for everyone. Feel free to try them yourself, bookmark them for later, or share them with a friend.
In the winter, I’m partial to any slow-cooker soup or stew because I love coming home to it in the evening. My favorite is a Vegetarian Chili with some Italian influences:
2 bell peppers, diced
2 stalks of celery, sliced
2 lb zucchini halved and sliced
1 lb fresh mushrooms, halved
1 large onion, diced
3 cans diced tomatoes (fire roasted or herbed for the most flavor)
1 can tomato sauce
1 small can black olives, sliced (or fresh in any amount desired)
1 can cannellini beans
2.5 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
½ cup water
Toss it all in a slow cooker for a few hours on high, or all day on low. Or, put it on the stove instead and simmer until the veggies are cooked through and the flavors blended (about 45 minutes). Parmesan cheese on top for an extra zing. From The Avid Reader: You can also serve this over pasta.
From Elisa Morgan: A Cranberry Nut Bread recipe handed down by my mom, Paige Lee
½ tsp salt
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
½ scant tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
Sift above ingredients together twice. To the juice and grated rind of 1 large orange, add 2 tbs of melted shortening and enough boiling water to make ¾ cup. Mix with dry ingredients and add…
1 beaten egg
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup halved fresh cranberries
Bake in greased loaf pan for 75 minutes at 350 degrees. If you double the recipe, bake a little less time and use 3 loaf pans. It also makes good muffins and can be frozen.
God Hears Her: 365 Devotions for Women by Women by Our Daily Bread Ministries is a lovely devotional for women. It has a beautiful hardcover with a page for each day of the year. It is a compact size at 6 ½” by 4 ½” which makes it easy to take with you (if you desire) and it fits nicely on top of my Bible. There is a foreword written by Elisa Morgan which I found enlightening. On each day there is a scripture passage, a short story (in a way) or verse, and then a short devotional that relates to the scripture passage. They are easy to read, and I found them encouraging. Each page is thought provoking, enlightening and positive. Reading each page is a great way to start or end a day (depending upon your schedule). It would also provide a nice pick-me-up in the middle of the day. I like that at the end there is information on the writers of God Hears Her. God Hears Her is especially beneficial for those new to the faith, but seasoned Christians will find new insights (I know I did). I am glad that I picked up God Hears Her as it is a wonderful addition to my daily devotions.
To celebrate their tour, Our Daily Bread is giving away the grand prize package of a God Hears Her hardcover, God Hears Her leather-like, God Hears Her journal, God Hears Her CD, God Hears Her pen, and God Hears Her Scripture & Encouragement cards. Be sure to comment on the blog stops (schedule below) for nine extra entries into the giveaway. Click here to enter. Good Luck! God Hears Her is available in hardcover and ebook*. You can find a complete list of retailers on God Hears Her website. Thank you for visiting today. For my Sunday post, I am featuring Pride, Prejudice and Poison by Elizabeth Blake tomorrow. It is the first novel in A Jane Austen Society Mystery series. I hope that you have a lively day. Take care and Happy Reading!
