  1. I apologize for putting this comment in the wrong place, but I just read your e-mail about people being highly offended (not just regular offended!) by your references to God and faith. OH, MY GOODNESS. It never fails to astonish me when people come to your (anyone’s) blog, which you own and are the boss of, and try to tell you how to run the show. It’s like someone coming into your house and being offended by the color of your drapes. Wha? What kind of sense does that even make! Anyone who comes here to visit you needs to remember their manners and respect you and your way of conducting yourself. You handled that very tactfully I thought, and though it would be a shame if people unsubscribed over such a thing, you were right in pointing out that they have that option. Bless you, and absolutely keep standing up for your beliefs.

  2. I just read your email for today…..I love it!! We must stand up for what we believe. God is with us all day and night, guiding and protecting. Your recipes are great and so is your writings. Keep up the good work.

  3. All this apple business you got going on is making me just YEARN for cooler, fall weather. South Texas is still hotter than, well…hotter than the inside of my oven’s gonna be when I cook us up some happy, apple yumminess! I.simply.cannot.wait.

  4. Well, I think I have my new recipe for Apple Festival 2015!
    (This takes place in my kitchen, by the way.)
    Thank you, and thanks to Taste of the South magazine for sharing 🙂

  5. Well, I’m definitely in the pit you mentioned these days, Christy…but it makes me feel a lot better to have read your inspiration today. Aside from your daily emails and recipes, I find myself able to relate to you,,,and your gift of gab full of humor:-)

    I do believe God is somewhere in my messes…all of them…and if His pit is anything like my kitchen junk drawer, I guess it’s gonna take Him awhile to find me! You can give Him a hint though, with a little prayer…tell Him to look in the kitchen drawer…haha

    Thanks for being my friend morning, noon and sometimes even in the middle of a long and lonely nite….you are sunshine and moonbeams!

    1. Hey Judy, your post touched my heart and I want you to know that I will be cheering for you and praying for you. Look up to Him who will come along side of you and comfort you. Phil. 4:13
      Best, Janet
