Missionary As a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints we are always teaching a preparing our youth to service full time missions. To serve a mission you must complete the criteria and submit forms to Church headquarters. From there a mission is chosen for you based on your information and just a few months later your are whisked away to another part of the world to preach and share the gospel. This year for youth conference we used the them Mission Island Park.  Since I live in Idaho we have the amazing opportunity to go stay at a cabin in Island Park.   Our kids had this amazing opportunity to hear from others about serving a Mission for the LDS church.

Crockpot Monterray Chicken

monterray chicken recipe crockpot
My family loves BBQ chicken.  We love to throw it on the grill, bake it and crock pot it. It is a main staple in our home.  So when you find a good recipe you put it at the top of your menu every month.  We tried Monterrey Chicken a while back and the kids loved it.   Mostly because it has bacon.  But also because it tastes so dang good. They want it all the time.
Some days I just don’t have it in me to marinate and bake and then top with all the bacon and cheese goodness.  So I decided to make it in the crock pot.  You can serve this delicious meal over garlic mashed potatoes or with steamed veggies or whatever you like.

I added my own little tweeks to make it my own or in this case, her own.

Grandma’s Snickerdoodles

hommade snickerdoodlesrecipe

Several years ago for Christmas, I spent a ton of time and compiled all of my grandmother’s recipes.  I asked everyone in the family what their favorite recipe was that Grandma made. After getting all of them written down,  I took the time to put them into the computer, and print them out so I could make a cookbook. Everyone in the family got one for Christmas and they were thrilled.  It was only $5-8 dollars for each one so it wasn’t a huge expense, though it  took a lot of time on my part. Since then I find myself using it at least once a week, maybe more.
