A Farmer's Daughter
Today all the kids slept in til about 7:30! Do you realize how incredible that is? Todd and I got to sleep in :-) It was a beautiful thing to wake up when the sun was coming up instead of the dark. Another cool happening is that we started kitchen renovation. About a year ago we bought a really cute home that was structurally sound, but needed a few touches here and there. We have been saving up to start renovating our kitchen and yesterday we started with taking our washer and dryer out of our kitchen and putting it into a brand new utility room :) Are you doing any renovations in your home?
A Farmer's Daughter by Dawn Stoltzfus is a cookbook that takes modern day cooking and blends it with Mennonite recipes. I love how Ms. Stoltzfus had quick and easy recipes for any cook to use, but she also had some really amazing sauces, desserts and breads that are simply mouth watering. Here is one of my favorite recipes to make on a busy night.
Ham and Cheese Sticky Buns
This dish is wonderful to serve at a birthday party or as an appetizer!
3/4 lb. deli ham (I prefer Virginia baked ham), sliced thin
1/2 lb. provolone or farmer's cheese, sliced thin
1 dz. mini sandwich rolls
1/2 cup salted butter
2 Tbsp. poppy seeds
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. prepared yellow mustard
1 Tbsp. onion flakes
This fun little recipe is a favorite with my kids and husband, and me as well because it is so easy to make. The sandwiches are warm and gooey, and absolutely perfect for a winter meal. So dear readers if you are looking for a good cookbook that has easy directions and delicious treats like this recipe here please read A Farmer's Daughter.
*This book was given to me via Revell a division of Baker Publishing Group in hopes of my honest opinion and I honestly gave it :)

Have you ever stopped to think what your gift is? God has given each of us a gift in His varied grace to be good stewards and to serve one another. Stop and think what the gift you have received, and if you are using it to the full extent.
