Angel Food Cake

I thought this would make a good Spring recipe. Enjoy!
Angel Food Cake

5 egg whites (best at room temperature)
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ cup cornstarch
1/3 cup fresh-ground whole wheat flour
½ tsp vanilla
½ cup raw honey

In a mixing bowl whip egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form. In a separate bowl blend flour and cornstarch. Add honey and vanilla to egg whites, mixing lightly. Fold in flour mixture with a whisk. Pour into an un-greased 9 inch funnel cake pan.
Place into 375°F pre-heated oven. Bake 25-30 minutes or until cooked through. After you remove the cake from the oven while still in the pan turn upside down and let hang for 2 hours or until cake has cooled completely. Remove from pan and top with Sweetened Whipped Cream (page ) and fresh fruit. Tiffany’s Table LLC ©copyright 2007-2008 All rights reserved

Can it be true?

I am a little hesitant to post this, but I just can't stand it any longer. The book cover is FINALLY finished!!! That is all we were waiting for. They will print the first copy, and then send it back to me to check and make sure I approve. This will take place in South Korea, so I am not sure how long it will take to get back, maybe 2-3 weeks. After that they will print 3000 copies, mail a handful back, then ship the rest. YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! It feels great to be finished.

However I have started the next book. I have been coming up with some unbelievable recipes lately. Marshmallow Brownies, Bolognese Sauce, and Italian Mayonnaise, just to name a few.

The sun is shining, spring is in the air, and my book is finished, what could be better?

Is there any recipes any of you would like me to work on?

The flu

Yea, I got the flu this year. Fever, chills, aches, headache, coughing, eyeballs feel like they are going to burn right out of the socket, etc. etc. I have the greatest family. The first day I was sick I was laying in bed, Logan (4 yr old) went and got me my water bottle, without me even asking him to, then he asked "mom, do you want anything to eat?" How sweet. Miguel worked late, hardly got any sleep, but still took care of the home stuff, laundry, dishes, kids. He also went to the Health Food Store, a couple of times, to get me some homeopathics. He's the man. The next day I was craving pancakes. So I asked Emerald (10 yr old) if she would make me some, she said yes. Let me tell you, they were the best pancakes I have ever had. Thank you Emerald. Tanner was my gopher, a little less furry, but a good gopher none the less. Apple juice was mostly what he was after. Thanks Tanner.
**Just a side note, when I am sick I seem to crave things I normally don't eat. Weird huh! I had white flour pancakes and tons of apple juice. Both of which I never eat or drink.

Thank you all for your help and love, I am glad to be feeling better, and hope to never be sick again.

Okay, so the book cover is almost finished! FINALLY!!!!! There is just a little more on the wording for the back that we need to work on. But the front cover is finished, and it looks great, if I do say so myself.

Poor Emerald

Well, it happened again. Emerald's ear piercings got infected. I guess her body just doesn't want her to have pierced ears. I am proud of her though, she decided all on her own, to take out her earrings and let the holes close up. She said she will just get clip-on earrings. I am proud of you Emerald for handling this so well. (once we got the earrings out, anyway) I guess people will just have to look at your beautiful eyes instead!
Love, mom

Architecture of all Abundance Chapter 3

Taken from the book: Architecture of all Abundance by: Lenedra Carroll
"I once heard a scientist say that if all of the space in our body was removed, the remaining physical matter would fit on the head of a pin."

If this is true, and I believe it is...............then it makes sense how people can heal themselves of terminal illness (keeping in mind the Lords will) You know the old saying "mind over matter."
Doesn't that take on a whole new meaning when you think of it in this context? If the matter is so very small, and we believe we can make a change, then it seems...............almost easy. We really have more "power" than we think we do.

"Stillness creates space in our thoughts and our embodiments. Without the space that silence, rest, and breath give us, our lives, our bodies, our minds grow tightly compressed. We experience that compression as stress, fatigue, and ill health."
"Space makes great energy available to us." "Love requires space to blossom. Creativity requires space for its development. Time requires space. Abundance also. Genius cannot be accessed without space. Health as well. And MAGIC"

"People seem to forget all the magic when they grow up."

"Know that you are more than the things that happen to you. Always make space for magic to happen."

Find more space in your life. Quiet, makes space for me. Fresh air, makes space for me. Feeling love, makes space for me. Whatever it is, try to tap into "your space" often. "Go to the happy place in your head." Thats what I tell Tanner to do for one of his classes at school, because the teacher is a screamer. Remember what it feels like to BELIEVE. Find your space, AND THEN ................MAKE SPACE FOR MAGIC!!!

I'm fine now!

Okay, so its like this. Somethings or sometimes, you don't realize how much they are effecting you until you stop doing it and then start again. If you read my last blog, you have probably guessed I am talking about walking. For me to be "normal" I NEED to walk at least 3-4 times per week on a regular basis. When I don't......... I turn into my last blog. Sad huh! I feel sorry for whoever had to read through that insanity, so I just want you to know, I AM FINE NOW. The sun is shining and I am walking again! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, THE SUN in the winter!! In the summer I love it too, but not so much the heat. I would be happy if it never got hotter than about 75°F. Every summer I threaten to move to Alaska. Just for the summer though, because I couldn't live without the sun.
I'll have more later, got to go.

All I needed is a walk and some perspective

Let me start out by saying, that when I don't go on regular walks (outside) something bad happens to my psyche. Let me also say that I haven't been going for regular walks since before Christmas. BAD BAD BAD!!!! So when you read the rest of this blog you should know "I was not in my right mind."

Logan just got over being sick last week. (I talk about that in an earlier blog.) As I mentioned before, whenever he is sick, he wants me to sit and hold him ALL THE TIME. Well for some reason, he still hasn't gotten over that, he still wants me to hold him all the time.
Between that, AND the weather, AND not walking I have been feeling completely SMOTHERED!!!!! I am suffocating!!!! I CAN'T BREATHE!!!!!!! Do you hear me? I am going crazy, I feel like I am in solitary confinement!! Okay, take a breather! I am really not that dramatic.
So I went for a walk today. Although the sun was not out, I do feel much better. I wore snow boots, so I walked and sloshed through all of the slush and snow, it felt good. I ran into a friend, and told her I was walking off some frustration. She asked what I was frustrated about. So I said I just needed 2 minutes away from Logan, because he wants me to hold him all of the time, and he is 4 years old. Her comment put everything into perspective. She said "at least you know he loves you." Whoa!!! Wake up!! I should be grateful! Then as I continued on my walk, I passed a neighbors house who does daycare, and saw a mother picking up her child and giving her a kiss. Another WHOA! At least I am home, for Logan to smother me to death, and for me to give him a kiss anytime during the day. I should be gratetful!

So..............the moral of this story is, don't put off your daily walks, and be grateful for loving children! Thank you Sheradee for helping me realize this!
