My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren

My Foolish Heart (Deep Haven)

Recently, I read the first of Susan May Warren’s Deep Haven Series, Happily Ever After. It was delightful and I feel in love with the little town of Deep Haven in Minnesota. My Foolish Heart is the fourth in the series. The town has been struggling with the tragic accident that turned their winning football coach into a quadriplegic, took the life of his wife, and has trapped their daughter, Issy, in her home with agoraphobia. A Caleb Knight moves in next door to Issy and the adventure to freedom begins.


Caleb is trying out for the position of football coach, but is hiding the fact that he wears a prosthetic leg due to an injury while serving in Iraq. He and Issy have many misadventures that bring them together so that they can each find the freedom that God desires of them. While Issy and Caleb have to work through their separate pasts, Lucy McGuire and Seb Brewster have to come to terms with the past they created together. Lucy, Issy’s best friend and the owner of The World’s Greatest Donuts, is struggling with her business; she has to turn to her high school boyfriend, Seb Brewster, for help.

My Foolish Heart is well written with many triumphs and setbacks throughout. I highly recommend a visit to Deep Haven to get to know its newest residents.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
