Cast all your anxiety on God because he cares for you.  1 Peter 5:7

I have not been very faithful to post on my blog.  Life, illnesses, etc. have kept me from getting back into a routine.  I am feeling lead to begin posting again and hope to do so at least once a week.  Since the second cookbook has come out I have continued to develop and collect recipes.  I constantly look for ways to stretch the food budget and use leftovers.  I am looking forward to getting back into the blog world.  I hope you will enjoy and be able to use some of these posts.  (more…)

Romans 15:13  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Making this soup is difficult to give exact measurements since I made it from leftovers.

2-3 cups of cooked turkey cut into bite size pieces

2 cups of leftover turkey gravy

1/2 cup of orzo

2 cups of turkey or chicken broth

1-2 15 oz. cans of mixed vegetables – do not drai

Chicken or turkey broth

Cook the orzo in the broth until tender.  Mix the other ingredients (except the additional broth) together.  Add the cooked orzo.  Add enough broth to the desired thickness that you like.  Salt and pepper to taste.  This soup freezes very well and is a great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken. 12711252_10207345755736120_8654089009927521246_o

AdeleCookbookPhotoConcept_BackgroundDesign2John 6:27  Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.

There are 300 recipes in this cookbook.  All of these recipes have been tested by me personally.  This is an expansion of the first cookbook:  Family Favorites. Family Favorites II, Second Helpings is now available.  The recipe collection has a southern influence recipes that require no fancy equipment or exotic ingredients.  One person who recently purchased the book said she enjoyed it because she usually had most of the ingredients already in his fridge or pantry. The cost is $15.00 plus shipping. Part of the proceeds (about 1/2) will be donated to a free meal program that is hosted by my church:  Manna Meals: this is a meal that is offered every week on Saturday to anyone who enters our doors.  Get your copy now.  They would make a great Mother’s Day present.  Contact me via this site or visit our Facebook Page:   Family Favorites II:  Second Helpings.

Acts 20:32  I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I have been on a journey to complete my second Cookbook.  I wrote the first one when our children left home and then kept calling back asking how to make _______.  I decided that the best way to get everything together was to print a Cookbook.   To my delight and surprise people wanted to buy some of the books.  After I sold out people were still asking for cookbooks. 

I am constantly searching for new recipes and asking people to share their favorites with me.  I starting compiling recipes for another cookbook almost three years ago.  It is finally done, has been printed and has arrived.  This new book has a lot of the favorites from the first book, but it also has almost 125 NEW recipes.  This book has 300 recipes that have all been personally prepared by ME. 

My wonderful daughter has developed an ecommerce site and has set up a PayPal Account if you would like to purchase one.  There is a tab at the top of this page called:  Adele’s Cookbook.  The cost is $15.00 plus $3.25 for shipping/handling.  If you want multiple copies you can message or email me for the shipping costs.  They are also available for wholesale rates.

After I recover the costs for the printing at least 1/2 (if not all) of the profits will be donated to charity.  I hope some of these recipes that have become our Family Favorites might become some of your family’s favorites also.  Believe me, most of them you will want to have Second Helpings.

Isaiah 32:16  “My people will live in peaceful dwelling places, in secure homes, in undistrubed places of rest, ” Says the Lord.

It has been a long time since I last posted.  So sorry I have neglected this blog.  Thank you to everyone who has continued to visit.  This is a recipe that is great for busy people.  We used this at our Saturday Free Meal program.  You just need to multiply the amounts and fix each casserole.  Each casserole feeds 12-15 in a 9 x 13 pan.

2 cups UNCOOKED macaroni – that’s right uncooked, that is what makes it so easy

2 cups water

2 cups cooked chicken

4 hard boiled eggs – optional

2 10oz. cans of cream of mushroom or chicken soup

1/2 lb. Velveeta cheese – cubed

Combine all in the refrigerator overnight.  Bake uncovered 1 hour at 325^.  You may need to add some additional water while cooking.

Variations:  You can use ham instead of chicken and use cream of mushroom or celery soup.

Psalm 119: 32  I run in the path of your commands, O Lord, for you have set my heart free.

I have finished editing my newest cookbook.  I will be selecting the cover, design, etc.  The only problem is that I don’t have a NAME for this new book.  It will contain 250 recipes that I have prepared for my family on Sunday dinners, church pot lucks and regular dinners.  The first book was “Family Favorites”, which is currently sold out.  This book has many of the recipes from Family Favorites, but many new recipes as well.  Let me know your creative titles.  If I choose your Title you will WIN a FREE cookbook when it is published.  Looking for some creative ideas.  Get Ready – Set – Go – Get Creative.

So sorry I have neglected this blog.  I am truly amazed at the number of people who continue to find the blog through searching for recipes, etc.  Thank you for visiting.  I have been working on Cookbook #2 and I am within about 20 recipes of finishing.  The new cookbook will have 250 recipes.  Some are from the first book, but many are new ones that I have developed over the past few years.

At least half of the profits from the book will benefit our church building fund.  The first book is sold out.  I was amazed at the interest in the first book, so I am hoping that the response will be just as good for this second one.  These recipes are the ones that my children grew up with and additional ones that we use for Sunday dinners for the grandchildren, church potlucks, etc.  They are not anything fancy, but they are good nutritious recipes (except for the desserts of course) that we enjoy.

If you are interested give me a post and I will contact when it is available.  To allow for printing we are anticipating 2-3 months from now.
