If you know me... you will know that one of my passions is cooking. I love to read cookbooks like novels and I love the old cookbooks... Where they have a pinch of this and a dash of that!! Since I was a little girl I have always loved to get my hands into food. I find it to be a creative outlet and one of my most prized gifts from God. I know many women today who can't boil water and I find that strange yet totally understand that some women's talents will not lie where mine lay ( hey did I use that correctly? I lack writing talent.. LOL LOL)...
I Love the bible verse in Titus where Paul writes to Titus and says "Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God" Titus 2:5
I have a passion for taking care of my home, my husband and children. I think I have mentioned in the past that I never had bigger dreams than this, other than to one day possibly be a nurse. Think about it though.. isn't a nurse someone who takes care of another...hmmm what's God telling me? Ever since I was a little girl I vowed that I would have a smooth running home, cook my meals and hang my clothes up on a line and have the biggest garden in the neighborhood.
Well, I do have a smooth running home and I cook ALMOST all of our meals and I LOVE to hang my clothes out on the line.. as for the garden .. welllllllllllllllll... I live on a tiny piece of land that has clay for dirt.. BLUCK.. so no control their... but I will can items from garden stands and orchards.
I guess you could classify me as a Suzy Homemaker! And I love it! I'm the person the friends come running to for a recipe, or stain removal, or organization ( just had friend call me to BEG me to help organize her pantry) To some this may seem boring.. to me I find it a challenge and fascinating!!! I guess you could say I'm just plain Old Fashioned and LOVE IT!!

Pour cooked syrup slowly over salted popped corn and mix well. Form into balls with hands,using as little pressure as possible.
