God’s Provision

God’s Provision

On my July 25 blog (God’s Little Surprises) I told you about beginning to record my God’s Little Miracle Book series. Here it is six weeks later and I’ve got two of the books recorded. Now all I have to figure out is how to fix the corrections, format them, and send them to Amazon ACX. Every step is a learning curve for this old dog, but God is quick to furnish encouragement every step of the way. The other day my grandson,…

Phones Then and Now

Phones Then and Now

Today phones do everything but the dishes. Seventy years ago in the 1950s life wasn’t ruled by the thing you held in your hand everywhere you went. Each house had only one phone. It was usually installed on the wall with a very short cord. It was black with no dial mechanism. When you wanted to make a call, you picked up the phone and waited for an operator at the Southwestern Bell office in town to ask you, “Number,…

Yummy Peach Pie

Yummy Peach Pie

Finally it’s peach season. I couldn’t resist making a pie this morning. The dough I use makes five crusts. You can put the extra balls in a plastic bag and refrigerate till you make your next pie. Hope you enjoy this family favorite from my book Family Favorites from the Heartland. Pie Crust-Never-fail Variety   Grandma Sally lived in south-west Missouri on a farm. Down the road and a half mile south, lived Bernice (pronounced Burn-nis, with the emphasis on burn)….

A Very Blessed Day

A Very Blessed Day

Some days are full of surprises–Like Christmas, only no one told you it was coming. I had one of those last Friday and Saturday. I was packing to go to a writer’s conference with my friend Rebecca when the phone rang. “Mrs. Jadlow, this is Larry Gunderson. Could I stop by for a minute?” “Sure!” Larry grew up next door to us. He came in from St. Louis for a funeral. We chatted for a little while before he had…

Spinning with a Spiralizer

Spinning with a Spiralizer

Ever wonder what to do with those vegetables from the garden that seem to multiply when you’re not looking? This summer I broke down and bought a spiralizer at Bed, Bath & Beyond. The first time I saw one I thought, what a stupid idea. Now that I have one I’m using it almost every day. I crank zucchini through it and it comes out looking like spaghetti (but without the carbs.) Potatoes become Suzie-Qs like we used to get…

God’s Little Surprises

God’s Little Surprises

Until a couple of weeks ago, I had as my summer goal, to find a reader to read my God’s Little Miracle Book ( I, II, & III). I hadn’t done anything toward attaining that goal. It was like I was in a holding pattern. On a Friday night I was up half the night unable to go to sleep. When this happens, I often get up to write my prayers. This night I felt the Lord telling me to lay down…

Ice Cream in a Bag

Ice Cream in a Bag

Our family always likes ice cream, but few want to crank the gallon and a half until it’s frozen. Some want strawberry, others desire blueberry. The purists want plain vanilla. With this recipe, each person can make their own flavor. and it only takes about five minutes. I must warn you–it’s habit forming! This and other recipes are found in my book Family Favorites from the Heartland, available on Amazon at the link below. Ingredients: ½ cup milk (for richer version…

Sarge and I

Sarge and I

I spent a lot of time at my grandparent’s home near Nevada, Mo during the turbulent years of WW II. Dad was first stationed in Fort Leavenworth, then Oregon. He spent a brief time in Waynesville before he shipped out for France, then Germany with the Army’s 70th Division. He arrived on the battlefield just after the Battle of the Bulge, 1944 at age 34. Since Mom held the position of store manager for the Edmiston’s Department Store in Fort…
