Hey friends –
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!
Thanks for all of your kind words after the Red Hot Faith release! I have my photos back from the Fiesta, and you can check them out here — Fiesta photos. Thanks to my friend Chellie for these great shots!
Although the official national release date for Red Hot Faith is July 2, 1014, it is fun to see how Red Hot Faith is spreading across the nation already. Yay!
May God answer the prayer of my mentor Mary — “Oh Lord raise up a generation of women who are red-hot for You!“
I’m also wondering if you have any favorite “red-hot” recipes to share?
In the RHF Leader’s Guide, I included a “bonus session” with ideas on how to have a fun and festive fiesta at the end of Bible study. I mentioned I would include recipes on my website to share to help make the fiesta sizzle!
But guess what?
I will never be known for my fabulous cooking skills (recap here). Y’all know how salsa got me into trouble already. For a recap, you can listen to the story below —
Can you help a sister out? Do you have a favorite appetizer, main entrée, or dessert recipe to share?
Here are some details —
–Please share an original family recipe, and not something copyrighted.
–Please pick a recipe that would work for serving to small groups/Bible studies.
–Please include why your recipe is red-hot!
You can send your recipe to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include contact information, including your website, if applicable. Thank you!
Now to get your creative juices flowing, let me introduce you to one of my all-time favorite cooking blogs — Art From My Table.
Chellie, the chef extraordinaire and blog author of Art From My Table, is passionate about cooking, intentional about serving fresh and whole foods to her family, and does an amazing job of posting creative, healthy, mouth-watering dishes.
When I first saw her recipe for Black Bean and Corn Salsa, my mouth began to dance! Yum! Doesn’t it look amazing?
Jokingly I invited myself to be her official taste tester (believe me, I know salsa!) ~ and Chellie, being the awesome friend and woman that she is, offered to come to my home and prepare it for me and my family.
In fact, she offered to prepare a whole meal. WOO HOO!!
The menu I selected: Enchilads verde, the black bean and corn salsa, and then Chellie surprised us with Blueberry Crumble for dessert.
What a blessing to have Chellie hard at work in my kitchen, while I was hard at work in my office. I loved hearing the chop, chop, chop from my desk. I think I need a personal chef every day!! 🙂
Before she left, Chellie taught me how to cut an avocado. Can you believe it? I’m 40+ years old and never knew. But no longer! Look at what a serious avocado student I am!
To enjoy the delicious recipes and a photo recap of Chellie’s cooking adventure in my kitchen, head on over to Art From My Table here.
Please be sure to introduce yourself to Chellie and let her know you came from *She Sparkles*. I know she’d be glad to meet you!!!
What is your favorite red-hot recipe? I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*
I have been peeling avocado’s for the last 6 months! I’ve never gotten into them until recently. It totally doesn’t look like I’m supposed to be peeling them. It has been difficult I will say…..slimy and hard to do but I just assumed that’s what you did. Ha!!!! You need to do a post on how to slice an avocado. I think it’s awesome that she came to your home to cook dinner. That is simply the best ever. What a sweet friend.
