Hook Line and Sinker by Susan May Warren




Do you have a favorite vacation spot? I have one, it’s quaint place where I love to go and spend long leisurely days in a comfy spot catching up with friends.  If you’ve never been there, I would suggest that you drop by Deep Haven to check it out.  Susan May Warren has created a wonderful place to rest and relax in the series. 

She recently released an e-novella set in Deep Haven titled Hook, Line, and Sinker.  This short trip into the woods is well done and a great quick trip to a quiet retreat that I have come to love.  This story is set at a camp with visiting college students.  Within the group there are two very different leaders that are working through their shared past to discover what their futures may hold.  All the while the group is participating in the yearly fishing contest of Deep Haven.  Once the competition is over, there is a wonderful scene with an older pastor speaking to the group.  He reminds us that “Jesus doesn’t ask us to fish only with crank bait or live minnows.  He tells us to fish…Our job isn’t to narrow down the bait; it is to be obedient with the fishing.”  (Location 604 of 739). 

Hook, Line, and Sinker is a great quick trip into Deep Haven for those that are familiar with its charm and a wonderful introduction to Susan May Warren’s writing for those that haven’t.

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
