My closet is bursting with books--sooooo many books. I've selected a few I've read, enjoyed and reviewed, and I'm giving them away in a bundle.

So yes, they're previously read--a bit tattered at the edges, and they cover a multitude of LDS genres--a gripping, historical fiction; an eerie YA fantasy; a sweet historical romance; an inspiring biography; and a darling suspense.

Yes, that's five, used, loved books in all! Interested in getting them?

Let's do something fun for an entry. I'm pretty stressed-out as we finish up Free men and Dreamers, so I could use some easy warm-weather recipes that comfort and come together quickly. Send me a recipe, and I'll enter you in the drawing.

Enter as many times as you want,but you must already be, or become a follower of my blog. That's it. Ready, set, enter! We'll pull the winner on Saturday, June 12.


  1. My favorite is a chicken and broccoli casserole. It is so easy and sooooo good! Put down a layer of stuffing in a casserole pan, slice up precooked chicken breasts (I usually just boil them, keep it easy) and layer the chicken on top of the stuffing. Next, layer precooked (again just boil)broccoli on the chicken. After the layering, mix up a can of cream of mushroom with a can of milk, and pour this on top of the casserole. Bake until brown and crispy on top :) This is always the first thing to go at ward pot lucks :)

  2. Here's a fast, easy, light recipe. I get about 4 roma tomatoes and put them in a blender or just diced them up really fine. Put them in a sauce pan, add about 1 tsp. olive oil and garlic salt. Cook on medium for about 10 minutes, just til everything gets blended nicely. Then just pour that over cooked spaghetti noodles. It's not a lot of sauce, it's just meant to coat the noodles and add some flavor.

  3. Rector Spaghetti- Cook frozen french cut green beans in any fashion you choose. Warm canned spaghetti sauce and frozen meatballs again any way you choose. Pile green beans on plate. Spoon on sauce. Place a few meatballs on top. Sprinkle with cheese of choice. Easy, breezy, low carb, good nutrition.
