This is one of our favorites!  My hubby approves and asks for it often.    It’s a great crowd pleaser, and the leftovers (if there are any) are awesome the next day.  Because there is so much meat with the salami and the bacon, this pasta salad is hearty enough as a meal in itself.  I’ve served this as a side to some grilling favorites, and also as a beautiful salad for a ladies’ dinner or buffet.  The portions here are quite large...

Agnes Sligh Turnbull’s stories have become popular among traditional women.  Some groups even have used the title of this book to encourage ladies in home-making, and really that is the value of this book.  Critics have called her old-fashioned, but that’s not a deterrent for me!   This is a short story about a woman and her husband who are trying to make a go of their small farm.  Their arduous work in the fields has begun to affect the peacefulness...

I discovered Alice Dalgliesh’s when her Thanksgiving Story was recommended to me.  My kids enjoyed that story so much that I looked to see what other books she had written.

I like to do a homemade gift for my family at Christmas time.  One year, I did pillowcases.  It was super easy!  At first, I had thought to try to find out what each person’s bedroom colors were and try to match those, but that turned out to be too difficult.  Matching colors was a problem, and I didn’t want my family to feel guilty for not using them all the time.  By doing the Christmas theme, family members could just bring it out once a year if they like.  I had also thought to use up some...
