Carol shares a Bible verse to nourish our souls and a recipe to whet our appetites. 
One of Carol's favorite Bible verses is Psalm 91:1-2
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High     will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,     my God, in whom I trust.”



One of Carol's favorite recipes is her mother’s Cookie Canes
My mother had the gift hospitality. Not only did she enjoy cooking and entertaining, but she was good at both. One of my favorite possessions is her recipe book. I love looking at the stained pages and wondering how old I was when those markings were made.

Some of my fondest holiday memories are the times she and I made Christmas cookies together. My favorites were her cookie canes, maybe because my special job was using a hammer or meat cleaver to crush the peppermint sticks for the topping. (…

 Anita shares a Bible verse to nourish our souls and a recipe to whet our appetites.
One of Anita's favorite Bible verses
Like everyone else who loves God’s Word, I have too many mercies to count! But the verse I found highlighted in my dad’s Bible as God prepared to take him home is a joy to me:

Through the LORD’S mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. The LORD is my portion,” says my soul. Therefore I hope in Him!” Lamentations 3:22-24 (NKJV)



One of Anita's favorite recipes: Adele’s Apple Donuts
In the early 1960s, we lived in Denver. My mom, Adele, heard this recipe on the radio and jotted it down. It’s been a family favorite ever since. Not sure why they are called donuts when they are baked in a muffin tin. But who am I to question Mom and the Denver radio station?

A Recipe For Maddie Clare
In Practicing Murder, Maddie Clare loves to cook for her cousins when they all come home from college. I bet she’d enjoy making this easy recipe for everyone. And she might even let Joze have a taste if he promises to be on his best behavior.

Looking Out The Window: Regina Merrick Talks About Carolina Mercy, Her New Book. Gives Away An E-Book.

A Warm Welcome to Regina Merrick
Regina shares a Bible verse she's cherished since her teens to nourish our souls and an easy, yummy recipe. She'll give away an E-book of Carolina Mercy. To enter to win leave a comment and an email address below.

Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4

This verse has been “my verse” since I was a teen and was struggling with a disappointment that had so little to do with what I wanted, and so much to do with what God wanted FOR me. It was years later that I learned, and used as the foundation for my first book, Carolina Dream, that when we literally delight in the Lord, it’s not our “wishes” that we should focus on, but instead that His desires become our desires!

Mom's Pecan Pie
I struggled to choose between two different pie recipes, both of which I received from my mother – chocolate pie, or pecan pie? Today, since I’m highlighting book 2 in the Southern Breeze Series, Carolina Mer…
