Last year I went through a very hard time, I was waiting for disability to be approved, my husband left and I was without cash to do anything. I did have food stamps but I learned very fast that food stamps did not buy toilet tissue, washing powerder, tooth paste and so much more. You can see my ministry at www.ReachTheMasses.org and my webchannel at … Continue

It can be very tempting to abandon your good sense of healthy eating on vacation. Although you may strive for healthy eating, it's easy to drift off and grab an ice cream cone here and there. There are however, ways to watch what you eat on vacation.
It's easier than ever these days to request a low fat or… Continue

Not a great listener but I do raise my hand a lot when the Pastor asks for volunteers. When he said they were doing a dinner and needed herbs..My hand shot up like the F 14t fighter Jet that Jamie's dad flew at Bartow Airbase.
When I got the list of all the things needed for this Ritual , I'm still wondered where I would I find Brown Eggs.
This is an interesting part of the Bible that followed the old traditions.
We are doing a Legacy/Memoirs Class at my Gallery and I… Continue

I went to the Hospitality room and heard a lot of grumbling about not enough people signed up to bring sandwiches,something was missing(I think it was a can opener) It was found later but the grumbling continued..Hmmmmm thought this was a ministry and volunteers were abundant.
I found some more frozen biscuits,buttered them sprinkled sugar and cinnamon and toss three trays in the broiler..I thought this was fun and I really would rather have a paint brush in my hand instead of a… Continue

The Table was set with a Christmas Table Cloth. She had arranged her… Continue

Wine and food go hand in hand frequently. Here are 5 tips for pairing wine with your meal.
1) Pick a wine you like. If you don't like the wine, chances are you won't like the pairing.
2) Decide if you prefer to complement or contrast the wine and food. For example: Creamy, buttery Chardonnay can be paired with a creamy, cheese filled dish. An alternate can be to contrast the flavors. Pair a slightly sweet wine (Riesling or Muscat) with… Continue

Eating out with your family doesn't always have to cost an arm and a leg. Most restaurants offer a Kids Eat Free Special, it's all about knowing the days they offer it and taking full advantage of it. Approximately 80% of Kid's Eat Free specials are only advertised by Word of Mouth!
So I am here to spread the word. This list is based on my local travels and where my family tends to eat most of the time; however, I am working on… Continue

Ok...I'm just gonna say it...."My husband and I live for Kids Eat Free specials at restaurants!"
Our daughters are getting older, and for the most part we don't always get away with eating off the kids meals. But....we have learned how to use it to our fullest advantage. We order off the kids menu and when needed our girls either share a side salad and/or share off of our plates. Then, it's just enough for them and it's still cheaper for us in the long run. The only caveat to this… Continue

I was smiling as we went through the back doors of the church,even though I was going to make changes in the Gardenist Table I must have had a smile on my face as Harley said she is alway's smiling. Even when doom and gloom is inevitable.
I had prepared a R.I.P. display for the Gardens information and since not even one person had volunteered to help I put this sign up… Continue

One of my ultimate favorite places in Winter Haven to go for lunch or dinner is Hurricane Grill and Wings
on Cypress Gardens Blvd. I have been a fan since they opened almost 4 years ago, and it's our go-to place when entertaining out of town guests, birthday dinners, and to order wing platters for Super Bowl parties.
Set in the High Pointe Plaza, you can always find a bunch of cars parked out… Continue

Just completed another workshop on Community Gardening.
One of the attendees is recommending the Greneteam spearhead the Magnet schools.Seems the public schools don't have the flexibility or land to develop this project. I disagreed and said we just hadn't reached the right person.I do think this can be done here in Polk County. Let me hear from you.Your thoughts or ideas… Continue

It's a tradition for me to meet with friends for breakfast on the first day of school. Our annual breakfast allows us all to meet after we have dropped our children off at school, catch up with each other, and for a few moms (myself included) wipe a few tears away with laughter.
This year, we chose one of my favorite breakfast places in Winter Haven - Southeast Eatery on Cypress Gardens Road. I am a HUGE fan of Manny's Original Chophouse in Haines City, and immediately fell… Continue

I know how frustrating the weight loss roller coaster can be! The mental stress of constantly dealing with how we feel about ourselves wreaks havoc on all areas of our lives.
Get together with any group of women, and the conversation will eventually turn to food or body image.
Like the classic victim, we have fallen in love with the things that are killing us. Here, it's our food.
This phenomenon is known as… Continue
