    Sanctuary Kitchen Special 

    I hope your home has one spot that is a sanctuary for the soul. At times mine has been the kitchen’ I am sure many would call that their sanctuary spot when it comes to having fellowship with family, that quiet moment with a book and tea or coffee in that special breakfast nook or there are those  that find whipping up food, baking, and recipe making as the ultimate elixir. Take the cozy mystery caterer Goldy Bear Schulz for an example here:   book goldy bear 269746


    Once and awhile when I have the time, I like to read up on trends. On food, I found this PDF guide:What’s Hot Foods trends.

    2 items sounded really delicious at the time: Ricotta Pancakes and Regional gravy.

    All Recipes Pancakes (Ricotta Pancakes) I had no problem finding quite a few recipes for this one, but “Regional gravy” was not anything the search engine could understand well even though I put in the top cities in Missouri in the topic to search with.

    So I have made a couple of gravy offerings I found to fit into a regional niche for my own kitchen: 1. Gravy Recipe 2. Gravy Recipe.

    So whether you cook in the kitchen, eat the finished products or do both. Find the way to use you kitchen for a sanctuary this week.   Enjoy!




    This is for the: Word Press Daily Prompt.

    If you saw my post today with the clock picture for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge, I thought for those that love books I would share some beautiful clock book covers. ( I add beautiful book covers to a board on Pinterest.)

    A Lock and A Clock 

    A couple photos for https:Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge.

    This week’s theme is “Locks and Clocks.”

    I found a couple of photos and worked the color out and then added just a splash droplet of color to the edges:

    Did You Know? July 12 Trivia 

    paper gift bag

    Today is: Paper Bag Day. It marks the day the machine that makes paper bags was patented. Of course I do not think the bags that were made at that time were as colorful as the one I am showing. But it just goes to show you every object must have it’s own day.
