Updates-2015

Been busy lately. Posted a lot of recipes since the last update. There’s also more posts in other places on the site. It might be worth your time (if you’re not already subscribed to e-mail notifications when I post) to browse this site here. Maybe you’ll find something nice.
October 18, 2015

Jessie_ro1In the process of giving this site a make over. Have you seen the home page recently? It’s autumn now, and time for a change, so a change it has! I might be creating a new updates page soon, too. Out (kind of) with the old, in with the new! Not sure how much time I’ll have in the future to update this site, though. We’ll see.

Posted a new lentil stew recipe a few days ago on the 13th. The leftovers may have tasted a bit burnt (It’s debatable. I’m not sure what I tasted was really a burnt taste, but I tasted something that wasn’t so pleasant, and might have been that burnt/smoky flavor), and so there’s also a leftover day post on how I fixed that. It was yummy afterward, too. There’s also a new post in leftover day today, which is also a new recipe for sweet potato dumplings, or jin deui. They were yummy! There’s also a new recipe that’s not quite a stir fry, because it’s more boiled (noodles) and steamed (vegetables and tofu) than actually fried. It’s supposed to be healthier than a stir fry, and was quite yummy. I also added sesame seeds, but didn’t put that in the post. I suppose I should go fix that.

Ok, fixed. Maybe there are other posts out and about here. You might like to check out my other sites, too, and my youtube channel, as I have been posting there. Don’t know where to find them? I made an announcement about them not too long ago.

Bye bye for now. hearts

Anybody who’s subscribed to (following) this website (blog) and regularly checks his or her e-mail should know that I have been posting updates–new recipes, new reviews, natural remedies (I think), announcements (I think), etc. I’ve also been editing posts and maybe deleting some, and setting others to private until I can figure out what to do with them. The index page still needs to be updated accordingly, with some links removed. Some are removed. I think, but am not sure if all the links to the new recipes are updated. That doesn’t count everything in leftover day and maybe some others that I have or may post in the future. Anyway, I have been adding things to this website and making some changes here and there. If you’d like to be more updated than just checking the updates page, you can subscribe (follow) this site (blog), and/or check back every now and then.

Sunday – September 20, 2015
Jessie_ro3

It’s been almost a month since I last said anything here, but I’ve been posting announcements. Even so, I haven’t been making an announcement for every new post or update that I have been making lately, though I did post a survey in the announcements today. You might not have noticed, but my journal is down. I’ve deleted most of the entries. I’ve also posted a few more recipes, edited a few recipes, deleted some recipes, and changed the privacy settings on others. There are still some listings on the index that you may not be able to open for those reasons. I’ve been pretty busy lately with other things, too (other websites, my youtube channel, looking for work, and other work on the side), but have been able to add some new recipes at least. It’s nice to be really cooking again and experimenting, too. I think the best recipe in the past couple weeks is possibly the blueberry crisp. It was so yummy that we had what little was left over from fellowship dinner for supper on Sabbath. That reminds me, I’d better go update that recipe so that, where it calls for honey, it’s made clear that maple syrup can also be used.

Jessie_ro2There we go. I’ve also deleted the “giving thanks” post that was on my home page. It’s not because I’m ungrateful, but it’s old. I think I’m going to post a few links on my resource site now.
Sunday – August 23, 2015

Jessie_ro2*Yawn.* I’m so sleepy. Though I slept in today, maybe I didn’t get enough…or maybe I ate too much. Those sweet and salty honey bars, oooo, I had two of them today plus an energy bar for dessert (and that was after lunch).

Anyway, I’ve got a new post up in “tea”, which I’m seriously considering renaming to “tea time”. It’s for “waffle tea”. Yes, I’m serious.

More changes have also been made to this site. Several past journal entries have been deleted. The potato chip announcement has also been deleted. Obviously, I didn’t win (which was a disappointment, especially since I came close, having a flavor similar to one of the finalists that were chosen). At any rate, your votes wouldn’t have mattered, since the voting was apparently just for fun and not an actual factor in their decisions (so they claimed). I could have used the money, too…Oh well, back to business.

So, Allison’s Gourmet (because it’s mostly chocolate), Peppermint Hot Cocoa Powder (for hopefully obvious reasons), 14 Sandwiches, Waffle Pizza, Turk*y Club, and Sweet Broccoli Salad have also been deleted and Avocado Burger, Avocado Pita, Western Tofu Scramble (XL), Western Scrambled Tofu, Individual (which has been renamed Western Scrambled Tofu), Vegetable Oat Patties + Bonus sandwich recipe!, Tofurky Melt, and Sweet Carrots (which had a spiced carrot option) have been edited. That’s all for now, though I hope to have more updated later.
Sunday – August 16, 2015 – 11:15 AM

Jessie_ro2Just posted a little post about sun tea—herbal sun tea, that is. Well now, I’ve got to go plug in my waffle iron and wash up some dishes. I plan to save my tea/coffee pot/kettle, at least the external part (there’s also a filter) and a few other things and give away most of the rest, as I don’t feel like lugging around all those dishes if I don’t have to.

 

Wednesday – August 12, 2015 – 2:00 PM

Jessie_ro1Changes are in progress. I’ve passed over a few posts already, making notes to edit them later when I’ve figured out how best to change them or what to do with them. Minor changes have been made on chicky dog salad, croissant pizza casserole, lima beans, sunflower cheese sauce, falafel salad, garlic buttered peas, veggie salad, oatmeal, and
veggie dog spread, the latter of which I recommended homemade mayo and homemade mustard or turmeric and removed bacon bits.

Also, dessert sweet potato has been deleted, because the recipe is basically for a mashed, spiced sweet potato with maple syrup. I can’t recommend spices anymore, and honestly find a plain, baked sweet potato to be suitable for dessert. They’re delicious as they are. Apple pie spice and pumpkin spice have been deleted, because they are combinations of spices, most of which I can no longer recommend, and garlic tea has been removed. It wasn’t very good anyway, and I can’t recommend the consumption of green tea anymore.

2:30 PM
Jessie_ro1

I’ve just edited and deleted more, and am about to make an announcement. You can see the announcement for more details. There’s a new recipe up, too, by the way. Even though I don’t have a fridge or stove right now, I’ve still managed to be a little creative. Someone plans to lend me a fridge this afternoon, too. If I can bring over my waffle iron, maybe I can do a little more cooking. I’m hopeful, at least. If nothing else, it will be nice to have some almond or soy milk with my granola.

3:10 PM

Jessie_ro1So, there are two announcements now. You can also see that I’ve added a “featured comic” section on the home page with the first comic via bitstrips. Not sure how often I’ll be able to update. Anyway, I should get going soon. Maybe I’ll relax and watch a video, or edit some videos for youtube, or work on my portfolio or something. I’m thinking about brewing some herbal sun tea, and I do need some water. Hm…

 

Sunday – August 09, 2015 – 7:40 PM
Jessie_ro1

Check out the announcement “Expect Changes“. Look around for new recipes, too. I’m pretty sure I’ve been posting them, and not specifically listing them. Most recently, there is a homemade ketchup and homemade mustard—”Healthful Mustard” recipe, and also a hummus pizza recipe and sour carrots. Definitely read that announcement, though. You may want to save some recipes before I get to them. Expect changes.

Sunday – July 12, 2015 – 5:35Jessie_ro1

Must not have recorded the time on the last update…Oh well. New ice-cold beverage up: chocolaty coconut foam. It’s actually made from carob, and it’s a delicious way to cool down this summer.

Wednesday – July 08, 2015

Jessie_ro3I may have made a few posts and not told you about them. If I remember correctly, the last time I was updating this site (except for the recently posted announcement—this was before that), the internet disconnected and did not come back on soon enough, so I left without posting the updates. In fact, I hadn’t even finished a post that I was working on. I think it was storming (or at least raining) outside One post, The Golden Cure has been updated. Just posted a recipe for a new sandwich spread, too.

Thursday – June 18, 2015 – 8:50 PM
Jessie_ro1

Wow. It took me so long to post that recipe. I hope it makes sense and is clear enough. It might be strange one for at least to some of you (then again, many of these recipes are probably strange, at least to some of you.). You can find the recipe for heart beets (patties/burgers made from beets) filed in entrees in the menu and under vegetables on the recipe index. They’re delicious. Looking forward to finishing off my last two tomorrow. It’s getting late, and I’ve got dishes to wash, so I aught to get going soon…Think I’m going to spend a little time listening to some music or something first, though. hearts

Wednesday – June 17, 2015 – 6:20 PM

Jessie_ro4Well…I guess I’ve been in a slump lately. I’m sorry. Did get a recipe up today though, and also indexed it. It’s been so long since I made it though…There were so many recipes I wanted to post. I should have written them down. I’ll be writing them down from now on, though, hopefully. Hm…stuff happens…

 

Wednesday – May 27, 2015
Jessie_ro2

Been quite busy lately, but I have taken some time to relax, sit down, and read. I had a nice, filling lunch of cheesy asparagus and broccoli soup over toast. The recipe for the sunflower cheese and the soup is up, along with some pumpkin and apple spice recipes that my grandma shared with me back around Thanksgiving or Christmas, a delicious new crepe recipe, an herbal tea recipe that I posted a few days ago, and maybe some other recipes scattered here and there. On the 15th (I think) I put up a new journal post, too. Just in case you noticed, the journal had disappeared from the menu. “About me” has been gone a while, too. I’ve been wanting to work on that, post some new information, and maybe some new pictures.  *scratches head* sorry…

Jessie_ro3Anyway…I’m not sure what other updates I may have made without telling you, except that I realized I had been spelling pirogui wrong. I went back to correct the spelling, but I think I misspelled it again. What happened? Ugh…maybe I’ll go back and fix it later. Right now, I’m kind of thirsty, and I don’t plan to be back to the computer lab. I’m sorry for all the misspelling. I’ll try to fix it, honest! In fact, this post will serve as a reminder. Right now though, I’m going to go…sorry.

Jessie_ro2*yawn* Oh, yeah, I renamed “North & South Blend,” too, since that seemed like such a silly or cheesy name. It’s now called “Tropical Apple Blend,” I think. Maybe that’s a cheesy name, too? It seems to me to be much better, though…I’m still open to suggestions. I welcome suggestions in the comments on my most recent journal entry or on the actual recipe post. Please? If you have any suggestions…Please be nice. Thank you. Ok, really, going to check my e-mail and then get going…

 

 

Friday – May 15, 2015 – 5:40 PM

Jessie_ro2I didn’t complete my fast on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or today, though I went at least three, probably 4 of those days skipping breakfast each day. However, I will try to skip supper today so that I have more of an appetite for breakfast tomorrow, and so that my digestive system can rest. *yawn*. There’s a new link up on the links page. It’s kind of a scary one, but I think it should be helpful. I’m tempted to throw those old pecans away, but it seems like soaking them should help (and I did soak the last batch). Hm…I came across Just Mayo while shopping at WalMart yesterday evening, and tried it today. The review is up, just posted it. Now…I’ve got some veggies that I need to slice for some steamed rice for tomorrow and some moldy carrots to throw away after what I’ve read. I hope the cabbage isn’t moldy, at least not too moldy. I had gotten the moldy carrots for free, thinking I could just peel off the  moldy peel, but…well, anyway, you might want to check out the article and google it. From now on, I’ll try to get fresher, better carrots. At the very least, I think my broccoli should be fine and I have some peas in the freezer and some asparagus and onion. Hm…want to make some more pumpkin bread, too, this one with apples. I hope it turns out well. I should get going, all that considered. There hopefully won’t be too many dishes this evening, at least. Have a happy Sabbath, everyone. hearts

Wednesday – May 13, 2015 – 2:00 PM

Jessie_ro1Well…I’ve managed to get the recipe up for maple walnut/pecan ice cream. It’s delicious, and I do recommend that you look int it. Now, I’m hungry, and have leftovers in the fridge…Since I’ve gotten some important things done that I wanted to do today, and at least one recipe up, maybe I’ll go eat something. I do have some studying to do today, too, and another letter that I aught to write…Hm…I don’t know yet what I should do. There is that leftover tofu in the fridge, and chilled vegetable soup (it’s best chilled, really), and I have spring rolls in the freezer…Hm…

Jessie_ro4But, you know, yesterday I was asking God for strength to get through this fast, and I just opened up my “thought of the day”  from Education, page 123, which says “For the mind and the soul, as well as for the body, it is God’s law that strength is acquired by effort.”

So, I’ll put forth that effort and try to take this time to get something productive done. I can still make some juice or have some tea, anyway. I am going to get going now, though. Maybe I’ll work on that journal post on my own computer, with fewer distractions, and copy and paste it later. Hm…

Tuesday – May 12, 2015 – 9:55 PM

Jessie_ro2Ah! I’m so sleepy! I came on here to post two recipes, two reviews, and a journal entry, but all I’ve managed to accomplish is one review, which is rather negative. I tried to post a review for another product that I have—so far—had mostly positive experience with, but am so sleepy! I’m sorry…nothing much accomplished tonight, but at least my dishes are finished. Today was supposed to be a fast day for me, and I do wish that I had followed through, but instead ate too much. Oh well, there’s tomorrow, and I intend to fast tomorrow. May the Lord give me strength. Maybe, taking less time to prepare food and eat, I might be able to get something done here. Ha-ha!  I’m sorry that the only thing I posted this evening isn’t so nice. I had meant to balance it out, but my eyes are tired and I’ve still got a couple things I wanted to do tonight before bed. It’s late anyway. Good night.

Thursday – May 07, 2015 – 8:05 PM

Jessie_ro2New chia seed pudding recipe. Though I eat this one for breakfast, it’s in “desserts”. This one is carob-coconut chia seed pudding. It’s yummy, especially with strawberries, but I think I’ll add a little more carob and maple syrup (and maybe Roma) next time. Anyway, gotta get going. Going to try to make some home made ice cream tonight. I’ve also got more dishes to wash (though I did wash most of them before coming over here), and some cards to write to some very special people in my life. Good night, everyone.

Monday – May 04, 2015 – 7:20 PM
Jessie_ro1

Heh—the hyphen between the day and month looks better, doesn’t it? I want to go back and replace all the commas between the days and months with hyphens, but not now. Just letting ya’ll know that I’ve got three new recipes up, and they are in the index. There’s cranberry pumpkin bread, pineapple-coconut chia seed pudding, and banana butter. The first two recipes are new favorites of mine, and so is the steamed rice and veggies that you can find in “leftover day”. It’s also in the recipe index. It seems like I missed “cranberry filling” somehow (or just decided not to put it there for some reason, maybe because I didn’t know where to put it), when making the index. It’s up now under “fruit”. I use it for some of my recipes and for waffles and pancakes—yummie! Anyway, I don’t have many dishes to wash today either, but I do have some, and would like to finish a craft for Mother’s Day and also get some studying in before bed—so—goodnight.

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 – 12:15 PM

Jessie_ro2“Salads (Non-Fruit)” has been added to the recipe index and three salads have been moved from “Vegetables” to the salads list. Falafel salad has also been added.

 

 

Jessie_ro3

Um…I debated on where to put the “falafel” recipe. I thought of putting it with the meatless meats, the sandwiches, or the dumplings. It’s in with the dumplings, because it seems to me like falafel are naturally vegetarian and not mimicking meat, although I might compare it to vegan chicken or fish, and the falafel itself isn’t a sandwich, though it can be used in sandwiches. Hm…maybe I will move it again later. Not sure yet.

 

Jessie_ro2

I had a late breakfast, but I’m thirsty, so gonna go have some water and tea. Oh, yeah, there’s new links up on the “links” page, too. Yep, I’ve been pretty busy (mostly with the SDA resource site, but I put some of the recipe links here, too.). Alright.Later…

 

 

Tuesday, April 28, 2015 – 7:55 PM

Jessie_ro3Check “Sandwiches, Wraps, and Tortillas” for the falafel recipe that I posted not-too-long, but not-too-recently ago. I’m not sure where to put it on the index, so it’s not up there yet. Neither is the falafel salad, which you can find under “Salads” in the drop-down menu of categories/subcategories. I realize that it’s about time that recipe index gets a “salads” section, but that will require some modification of the other lists, too, so it’s probably not going to happen tonight. The new juice, a north and south blend (not sure what else to call it, as it combines tropical fruit with apples and a pear, so if you’ve got a better name for it, please share and I may consider it), should be in the recipe index though. I also noticed that somehow fried okra was missing from the index. It’s up now. There’s also a new review. Anyway, going to get going soon…

Sunday, April 19, 2015 – 7:15 PM
Jessie_ro3

You know…not long after making the last update this past Wednesday (I think it was even that same evening), I went ahead and put those recipes up on the index. So, yes—unless I somehow missed one—they are up on the index now. So are some new recipes. I’ve been busy in the kitchen lately, trying to come up with healthier recipes (including and especially gluten-free recipes). So, here’s the list of the recipes posted in the index today (not in the order that I posted them):

  • Garden Veggie Stew
  • Whole-grain Oat Biscuits
  • Avocado Lettuce Wraps
  • Red Pepper Guac
  • Tofurky Melt (not gluten free, though it can be made on gluten-free bread)

Jessie_ro2

They are filed under categories, too, but I don’t feel like going through those right now. As you can probably expect, I’ve got lots of dishes to wash. I did pretty well at going to bed early yesterday (got to bed before 7 PM, I think), and I’d like to get to bed some time before 10 tonight, if possible, so I need to get going to take care of those. I’ve also got some studying to do before bed, too (if I can get to it tonight). Anyway, got to get going.  Good night.

 

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 – 4:05 PM

Jessie_ro3

…I have been posting things here and there on my site, but not discussing them much here. There’s a new entree and a new sauce, but I haven’t put them (nor the recipes mentioned in Friday’s update) on the index yet. I’ll get to them eventually (if the Lord is willing). There’s also a new review and a new leftover day post (which I plan to edit). I haven’t accomplished much today. Sorry…I’ll try to get my act together. “…With God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26, NIV)

Friday, April 10, 2015 – 5:10 PM

Jessie_ro1

Posted a new sandwich recipe for an avocado pita and also a new salad recipe for broccoli salad. I haven’t put them on the recipe index yet, because I’ve gotta go, but I’ll try to do that whenever I can get to it. I guess this serves as a reminder to myself, too. You can find them in those categories, though. K? Have a nice weekend.
Wednesday, April 08, 2015 – 6:25 PM

Jessie_ro1

Trashed the last journal entry. If you haven’t read it yet, it’s not there any more. Posted a new review today.

 

Tuesday, April 07, 2015 – 8:10 PM

Jessie_ro4Just posted a recipe for beet and carrot juice. I also posted a new journal entry the other day. I think I’m doing much better with the diet. I should get going before it gets too late, as I’ll need plenty of rest tonight. Good night.
Tuesday, March 31, 2015 – 8:00 PM

Jessie_ro2The pie didn’t turn out as expected. I did share the vegetable recipe that I brought to the fellowship dinner, though. It’s garlic buttered peas. I made juice again today. I can’t say that I completely fasted, since for breakfast I had a banana, and later ate a sesame stick and then later some dried fruit. Anyway, the recipe is for carrot & cucumber juice. I hope you find it helpful. If all goes well, I plan on doing some more cooking tomorrow. I also found some recipes that I hadn’t posted yet, and hope to get them up soon.

…Just added a new link to the home page. It’s to a quiz on binge eating disorder. It’s by lifescript (not affiliated). I might move it to links later, or remove it.

Friday, March 27, 2015 – 5:50 PM

Jessie_ro4I didn’t juice fast today, but I did make some juice. This one’s a grape apple cider. Do you remember where I said you could find the other juices? If not, you can scroll down a little bit to the update below. This juice was especially yummy and refreshing. I hope you enjoy it and find it at least as favorable as I did.

I’ve got a couple hours to get ready for Sabbath and a lot to do, so I’d better get going. If all turns out well, you might see a new pudding pie and a new veggie recipe posted in a few days. Have a nice weekend.
Tuesday, March 24, 2015 – 10:35 PM

Jessie_ro4Yesterday, I added a new pudding pie to the Cherry-Vanilla Pudding Pie (and other variations) page. It’s just “Pudding Pies” in the recipe index. I’m thinking about shortening the actual post name to “pudding pies”. Anyway, this one’s a pistachio and lemon pudding pie and it has some directions of its own. It was delicious. I’ve gone on a sort of fast for a few days, so I gave away the last couple slices to my neighbors. I’m thinking about eating tomorrow, maybe potato pancakes or something.

Jessie_ro1

Yum! Anyway, today I juiced for the fast. Both juices were a success. The veggie juice was yummy and refreshing (although I think it did have a little bit of bitterness) and the blue strawberry grape juice was refreshing and delicious. I have so much energy now, too and feel good.I definitely recommend trying them, and have shared them in the “beverages” category, and under “Juices, Shakes, and Smoothies” in the recipe index. I hope you find them helpful, healthy, and delicious.

Jessie_ro4I should get going soon. As you can see, it’s pretty late here. Good night.
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 – 8:30 PM

Jessie_ro2Yes, my “about” pages are down. They’re out dated and I don’t feel like posting something up-to date or fresh right now. I had come over with those intentions, but then I had writer’s block (or something like it). Anyway, new journal entry. If there are any more updates from today, I don’t remember them (sorry). The home page has been updated, too. I guess for the same reason that the “about” pages are not updated, there’s not much to it, but I thought it would be nice for a change. It’s getting late. I think I’m going to watch some videos on youtube (if I can find anything worthwhile), and then head back to take care of some dishes and fix a cup of tea. Good night, everyone hearts

 

Monday, March 09, 2015 – 8:45 PM

Jessie_ro2Posted a new journal entry. Not much to it. On a mini-vacation and not planning on doing much. Anything could happen, though, *sigh*. New recipe. It’s actually an older recipe from when I worked regularly in the kitchen here. I just hadn’t posted it yet, I guess. Also a new  post about tea. This one’s about garlic tea. It’s not as favorable as the others. Sorry.


Tuesday, March 03, 2015 – 10:20 PM

Jessie_ro2Feeling kind of productive. Not really that tired, but about to head back to settle down with a nice hot cup of tea. Tomorrow’s my day off, so hopefully I can sleep in. I haven’t been good about getting to bed on time lately anyway. Been up late reading. Anyway, there’s a new tea post. This one’s about molasses (blackstrap) tea. Hope you enjoy it. Also posted two new recipes today. One is a hash pancake, which can be found under “breakfast” on the menu and “potatoes” on the index. The other is a veggie (beet) salad, which can be found under “salads” on the menu and “vegetables” (for now) on the index. Should I be saying “in the index”? Is it “on” or “in?” Anyway, I’d also like to encourage you to check out the pudding pies again to see the latest pudding pie. I call it “snow day pudding pie”. To me, it tastes kind of like those snack cakes called “snowballs”, with a hint of mint (and different, anyway). It’s delicious. Alrighty, going to get going soon…Good night, everyone.

Saturday, February 28, 2015 – 8:35 PM

Jessie_ro4New item added to the menu, because it didn’t seem fit to put it in any of the pre-existing categories. Wasn’t sure what to call it. For now, it’ll be “Healthy & Delicious”. It was almost called “Meals”, but that didn’t seem to fit either. Not sure what else I’ll add to it. Time will tell, I guess. Hm…

Anyway, the post is about oatmeal, and how to doctor it up real good for a delicious and healthy breakfast. Please check it out. Rearranged the menu a bit, too. You can now find “Leftover Day” in the “Recipe Index”. I’m really getting tired of that category and may remove it, as soon as I figure out what to do with everything else that’s on there. Hm…

Just took down the Christmas bulbs, too. It’s sad to see the winter go, but we’ve had some nice snow, at least. *smiles*

Jessie_ro2

Have been rather sleepy today. The time this evening went by fast, though. It was good to relax, but I’m afraid I stayed out later than expected. The weather has been beautiful, but is rather frightful tonight (very icy and slick, although the crushed ice provides some traction making it easier to walk and not slip). It’s dark and I should get going, especially since I need to get to bed soon. A hot cup of detox tea is calling me and so is my bed. I need to get some sleep. The update? Oh, yes…I added a new link toward the bottom of the list on the “links” page. It’s about health and diet from a Biblical and an Adventist’s perspective. At least, I think that’s what it was. I only skimmed it. You can check it out if you’re curious, though. Good night, everyone.
Friday, February 20, 2015 – 4:25 PM
Jessie_ro3

Well…that’s embarrassing. I just posted a new recipe for veggie dog spread (almost called it “doggy chow”, but was worried that someone might be actually looking for vegan dog food for their doggies and be disappointed). Anyway, I went to find the recipe to add it to the index and noticed that the links to the different categories of recipes were in the main menu bar, making it quite large. I’m sure that it happened when I changed the “recipe” menu item to “recipe index”. Don’t remember whether I just changed the page or whether I removed that item and “recipe index” is a new item. I’m thinkin’ the latter. Either way, I guess I wasn’t thinking about what it would do to the menu. Those items are back as subcategories now, so—if you want to find them—you can hover over the “recipe index” menu item to find them. I should get going soon. I’ve got some laundry to finish and have got to get ready for Sabbath (which I’m really looking forward to). I picked out a new Bible video (It’s new to me, anyway.). Was going to watch it last night, but decided to save it for Sabbath. I might be having chick’n waffles for the first time, too. I decided not to get maple syrup when at the store and am kind of regretting it now, but I needed to save money, so I can still use honey or the orange sauce that I got. Hm…maybe I’ll steam some snap peas and broccoli to go with them. Good night and happy Sabbath, everyone.hearts

Jessie_ro3

New journal entry. I’ve also started doing reviews of products, too. They’re short and there’s not much too them, but I hope it helps some people. I like talking about things that I like, and things that I don’t like too anyway. There’s also a new pie in the cherry vanilla pudding pie (and other variations) post. Please check it out. It’s a coconut cream pudding pie with candied pineapple. It was a hit at a fellowship dinner and game night that I went to a week or two ago. You can also find a new recipe for peppermint hot cocoa powder in the beverages category. Right now it’s under “snacks” on the index. Enjoy.

Jessie_ro2Praise God! This has been a very productive day for me on these websites. I say “these”, because I have two that I am currently updating. You can check out my new journal entry for more information on that (look toward the bottom), and also for an update on my life. A whole new recipe is posted in entrees—which is back up. It’s an easy ramen stir-fry that I had for lunch today. It was delicious. In addition, the recipes page has been swapped out for an index of recipes in various categories. You can see today’s journal entry (at the beginning) for more information on that, too.

Jessie_ro3I do apologize, by the way. I did happen to notice today while working on these updates that the entrees (formerly lunch/dinner) were not on the menu. It might have fallen off when I changed the name, or I might have accidentally removed it from the menu when adding something else. I’m not sure what happened there. It’s somewhat embarrassing, and I am sorry. I hope it hasn’t caused too much of an inconvenience. The mistake has been noted though and it is back up. Anyway, I think I’m entitled to some tea and bread pudding before bed. Yup, I’ve made a new bread pudding today. It has apple juice concentrate instead of sugar (although there’s most likely sugar in the bread, at least there’s not so much added refined sugar), so if I just eat a little with some herbal tea, I won’t have to feel too guilty about it. If it’s good enough, I’ll share the recipe later (if the Lord is willing).

Jessie_ro2I hadn’t planned on being on the computer this late today, but I think it was worth it. I honestly feel like I’ve accomplished something. Now, it’s time for me to head out, text my dad before it gets too late, and get ready for bed. Got a busy day at work tomorrow (I hope). Thanking God again for how He’s been leading and guiding and helping me along. Prayers are needed and appreciated, too. Thankful for my family and friends. Also thankful for all of you, too, who haven’t forsaken me in this time of inactivity, confusion, and possible boringness. Good night hearts.

*Yawns and stretches.* Another day of unproductivity on this site. I’m sorry. Well, I posted a new natural remedy—an old home remedy that my mother (and possibly my grandmother and daddy) taught me when I was little, which I recently had to use again. If it’s not obvious, I’m tired. My eyes are already heavy. Hoping to get to bed about an hour earlier than usual. That will be a big accomplishment if I manage that. But, in order to do that, I’ve gotta get going. Good night, everyone.

I could use some prayers. Facing tough decisions and not sure what to do. Because of this, I  may be extra extra busy for a while and may disappear, but I’m not sure yet.  Anyway, just pray for me, please…ok? I’ll try to post some journal entries if I ever get the time (I hope I will). I still need to wrap up a belated Christmas for my family and send a package to a friend, too. I came online to post some journal entries, but ended up watching a Daniel Boone movie. It seems like only part of it was based on true events and I doubt the rest, because it doesn’t match the book I read. Such a disappointment…Anyway, I’ll try to be more careful in the future of what I watch, because I hate wasting time like that.  Yesterday, I posted a special and super delicious bread pudding recipe and had wrote that I would add a picture later, but it appears that my camera batteries are mostly dead and it seems that so are the back up batteries. I guess I’ll have to get more. Though I’m trying to save money, batteries are important, and I can go months without having to buy some…

Jessie_ro2So, anyway, the point is that you probably won’t have a picture until the next time I make the pudding and have batteries available (If I’m still thinking about taking a picture for it. I should, because it’s beautiful.). I have a cup of herbal tea, a book, and some Christmas tree lights calling me. I should have headed out earlier, but wanted to at least make a little update on this site. I’ve also been busy adding links to my SDA Christian resource site as I find time and interesting links to add. Alright…it’s way late, so I’m going to get going now. *yawns and stretches*

I had intended to post more than this this evening. I’m sorry. I got distracted online. Believe it or not, I actually almost headed out without posting anything. A nice hot cup of herbal tea is calling me. It will probably be my second today. So, yes, I have posted another short article about tea. This one is on lemon tea. It’s not much, but it’s something, neh? Would you like to have a nice breakfast with your tea? I’ve also figured out how to make a vegan version of birds’ nests. I didn’t think it would get posted to night, but it’s up, along with a recipe for vegan egg yolk (a sauce). I hope you all have a nice breakfast. I think I’m going to go have that tea now (or soon, at least).

Jessie_ro1Why, happy new year! I hope you like our new updates page. Candycane Scartissue worked hard to make these brand new pixel dolls for the new page. She did a beautiful job, didn’t she? Sorry I haven’t posted much lately. Been super busy. But, our host delivered a pretty stats page for the site. So, I decided to post it.  Also, lunch/dinner under “recipes” has been changed to “entrees”, and I have posted a new “how-to” (salvage your burnt cake) after a sad incident. I should have just made bread pudding, but I ate all the bread and was craving cake.

Anyway, I wish I would have posted more today, but I got distracted  with other things online. Besides, I have pictures to put up with my new posts, and those pictures are not edited yet. That, and I need to get back to a mountain of dishes and a phone call (maybe a nice relaxing cup of tea, too). So, I’d better get going. I hope you like the new updates page! hearts

You can find the old updates page here, or by hovering over “updates” on the menu and clicking “2014 Updates”. Just click on “Updates” on the menu from now on to get to this page.  2014 updates includes updates from 2014 and 2013. Maybe I should correct that.

Note: Pixel dolls on this updates page are made by Candycane Scartissue. Please do not use without permission by both me and her, since the dolls are made by her and therefore copyrighted to her, but the character is myself. Therefore, we both need to be asked before you can use these dolls. Candycane Scartissue, however, has rights to these and may do as she wishes with them. The link to her page is part of the agreement. She is a skilled artist. I do not, however, endorse all the subjects of her artwork, and this link is not to show endorsement for her art, but for the benefit of the artist and her business. Some of the subjects of the artwork featured on her page are not appropriate for children, and therefore, viewer discretion is advised.

Additional Note: Pixel dolls are meant to hold the place of emoticons, indicating my mood. They are not a good indicator of what I am actually wearing as I make this post, although I am frequently found in some of these outfits.
