In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

The Teacake recipe is here:

The Stuffed mushrooms.... I don't really have a recipe. :)
They are EASY and can be made different ways.

The amount of ingredients depends upon how many you are making.
But let's say you were going to make 12-18.
I use baby bella mushrooms. Take the stems out. (wash them)
This time I diced 1/2 celery stalk very fine. 1/3 of a medium onion, diced very fine...
1 cup gf bread crumbs
1/4 c melted butter
garlic, sage, salt, white pepper, black pepper, 1/3 cup bacon pieces, OR lump crab meat OR both...:)
1 egg. Mix everything together and then take spoon and stuff them.
Bake at 375 until firm when touched and the mushrooms are giving off a little liquid.
Eat ALL of them... or somebody else will! LOL
