    These look great and will make just the right amount. I wonder if you can make them and just not use the bread machine?

    Here is our allergy-friendly menu for this week. As the next month goes, all will be busy and meals (& following meal plans) will be sporadic. Regardless, I have hopes that we’ll eat well.

    I always include a little “extra” discussion in my meal plan posts. This week, I share a suggestion I made to a friend for choosing gluten-free flours when a gluten-free newby — sort of the 2-3 bare-bones, but effective gf cooking flours.

    Are you coming to speak in Arkansas? I would love to meet you if you are! I’ve been following you since Biblical womanhood. You are such an inspiration!

      Sorry, I didn’t read far enough down. I see that you’re going to be recording a radio program with Tricia Goyer. That is great! Can’t wait to listen! Will be praying for your flight here!

      You’re so sweet! I’m not speaking this time, just a few radio interviews with FamilyLife and spending a little time with my friend, Tricia Goyer.

    Crystal – was wondering if there is somewhere on your blog that gives reading recommendations for children. My daughter is six and I would love to start reading chapter books to her, but don’t know where to start. Any help would be appreciated!

    Ah eating out and dinner with extended family is a super simple eating plan! ;)

    Those look like Williams & Sonoma measuring cups; do share what brand you use. Love quality kitchen equipment.
