Carlene Shares her favorite Bible verse and a favorite recipe

Carlene’s favorite Bible verse (today) is John 3:17: “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

Carlene admits her favorite verse seems to change fairly often, but usually comes either from John or Romans.

December is Carlene’s month to invade her husband’s domain, the kitchen.  She loves to make Christmas treats both to serve and to give away.  She loves quick, easy recipes that yield something cute as well as tasty.  One of her favorites is this simple, no-bake recipe for holiday mints.

Holiday Mints

Thoroughly blend one cup confectioner's sugar for each ounce of cream cheese. Mix and flavor with peppermint extract to taste (I use at least two tablespoons for a batch of 4 cups sugar/4 oz cheese, but I love mint.)

Shape into small balls and allow to dry for at least an hour or two, in the fridge if it’s a warm day.

Dip in melted white chocolate coating after drying. Sprinkle something festive from the cupboard on top, and your mints are both decorative and yummy.

About Song of the Shepherd Woman

In the first century, Channa’s stepfather gives her to her maternal great-uncle Avram to raise.  He is known to be a peculiar, perhaps dangerous, man with a wife who cannot speak.  Nevertheless, they are kind to Channah and teach her how to care for sheep. When her stepfather unexpectedly announces her betrothal to a Jerusalem tanner, the girl is forced to leave the only home she knows.

The ebook is available at an introductory price of 99 cents for a while, and it’s available just about everywhere.  Here are a couple of links.

Bio: Carlene Havel writes historical stories set in Biblical times with her writing partner Sharon Faucheux.  The duo’s latest release is Song of the Shepherd Woman.
