  • Cooking that cares

    12/8/2019 4:48:30 PM, by EGGABIRDIS

    Our usual Sunday morning service we were given a reminder of what we are called to do. Feed his sheep. We all spend a lot of effort at this time of year looking for ways to help those less fortunate and yet sometimes I wonder if we are the less fortunate. We try to take some time each year to...

    12/7/2019 3:26:53 PM, by EGGABIRDIS

    Gorgeous winter day. Sun shining. Temps in the upper 20’s. Started the fire early in the morning, sat back and spent a good hour in my recliner digesting Ephesians 4. Went outside without a shirt or jacket, spent about 20 minutes cleaning up some of the fresh snow , fed the birds, stood for a whil... Read more

    12/6/2019 10:07:21 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    I am thinking about putting some boneless skinless chicken breasts into the oven. About 6 to 8 of them.

The time that saw for the smaller size is anywhere between 1.25 to 1.5 hours to cook. How long should I cook this ... Read more
