  • Your Way of Life?

    Recently, I was reading the story Jesus told in Luke 10 about the Good Samaritan.  Back in the 1950s, Dr. C. Roy Angell, who pastored Central Baptist Church in Miami was the inspirational speaker one summer at Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly in North Carolina.  I purchased one of his books that had a chapter dealing with this scripture.  Dr. Angell was a master storyteller.  He said the story of the Good Samaritan illustrated three philosophies or ways of life.

  • Upcoming Class: Sensational Salads

    Sometimes the simplest dishes, such as salads, are the hardest to create without a recipe. If you are tired of just adding tomato, celery and cucumbers to lettuce, try these tips to freshen things up. Use a vegetable peeler to make zucchini and squash ribbons. Consider lettuce a bed for anything, add leftover grilled vegetables or even stir fry. Often leftover dishes are made with some type of seasoning that can act as a dressing if just olive oil is added.
