Life and Cooking

I know it's been a while, and I feel my passion for blogging has kind of fizzled. I feel my life isn't all that exciting and who wants to hear about my stress? Not me!
Life always has a way of mixing things up. Just when you are comfortable with life something has to be thrown in the mix. Right now we are kind of in between to parts of life. And I'm not going to go into detail because that isn't something that we need to share, so don't ask because we won't tell, even those of you who know use well or are family. (and don't be starting rumors that a baby is on the way, unless it's about you).
As much as we are stressed right now with life, I'd be ungrateful to mention how blessed we are. Most of you know that 7 years ago the hubby ventured off and started his own business. We've been blessed that we have always had food in our bellies and were able to pay the bills every month, even though it hasn't always been on time. We are still happily married, which is more than we can say for every other couple that has been part of this endeavor (a least 10 marriages have ended over the years, probably more). How lucky are we that even though things were TOUGH and uncertain that was never an option for us and our relationship never got even close to considering that. I love you Jeremy and I'm sorry I haven't always been as supportive as I should be or could be and let life get to me. We have our family and that is what is most important and we love each other.
So what does this have to do with cooking, nothing really but I thought of some similarities of life and cooking. Some days you have good days and other days you don't. Some times you decide to try a new recipe and it turns out better than expected, sometimes it worse than you thought it would be. Sometimes you forget to add things and it just doesn't turn out right. Sometimes you make changes to fit you better. I'm sure I could up with more but I'm going to stop there. Cooking is an adventure and so is life.
So now to cooking, my sister-in-law started a cooking blog and asked me to contribute on it, so go check it out! One of the things about finding new recipes I have a hard time with is trying to decide if it's worth my time to make because you never know how it will turn. This is place where we are posting our favorites, so you'll know that at least we like them. And once we get enough up there we'll have labels so you can click on a type of food and see what your options are. Go check us out. We are just getting started so make sure you come back often to see what we have come up with. Happy cooking. And just like cooking if things don't turn out don't give up and try again. I'm going to try to apply that more to my life.

Boy do I know about life throwing you curve balls. 2 unexpected babies later and selling a house to move an apartment in Rexburg Idaho so my hubby can finish school. But if I have learned anything from all these curve balls is that Heavenly Father certainly knows the bigger plan and was throwing me those "curve balls" to get me in line with his plan. And that his plan is so much better then mine. My family has seen so many blessings come from our curve balls and it has only made us better and stronger. I will admit though my first thought when I started reading was baby:) So glad you clarified!! And thanks so much for supporting the new blog. I hope we get some good recipes!!

Sometimes life is hard. I am just so grateful that I have had you to stand by my side in the hard times and in the good times.

Sorry about the rough times. We all have them. A little while ago my husband said, "Gee, things seem to be going really well right now..." and soon after that we were thrown a few curve balls. They were tough at the time but we NEVER felt alone or abandoned by the Lord and it made our marriage and family so much stronger. And now that we can look back, those hard times have given us some of our most choicest blessings. Hang in there, hold on to each other and you guys will get through.

-Love the recipe blog. I will be back.
