When I think of the word “grounded,” I think earth, I think of roots-both in food and also in a sense of where we come from and what makes us who we are. My Cookbooks are just that. With family recipes, recipes inspired by our travels, and foods that bring comfort (in a fresh way, with whole ingredients.) Food is art, eating should be an experience, and it can (and should) take our breath away! Delicious food CAN (and should) also be feel-good food. We strive to celebrate small moments and help elevate your everyday gatherings. Every moment, every family dinner, every picnic on the floor, can be special when we make it so! Food can create connections, heal relationships, and bring people together. You can find and create grounded moments daily.
I had the honor to attend the BHG Magazine 100 year anniversary party last year, and as we gear up to head back to NYC, I wanted to reflect on the fun and special experience this was for me! I was able to chat with many people about and give out my cookbook, “Grounded”, and learn from industry leaders. It’s always fun to see friends that you’ve made on social media in person, also!
We can’t tell you how excited we are for this vision to become a reality! This will be a space where I can share my love of home, food and worship! If you find yourself in Midway, Utah- be sure to check out our ‘Coming Soon’ sign!
Okay, I’m no pro. And my husband really doesn’t like this technique! Hahaha. But it seems like from the comments, most of you do the same!
Being part of a physical church is wonderful. When it comes to fellowshipping and lightening burdens, having a large body makes it easer. But we are imperfect people, and sometimes we can get feel a little taken aback when some says something or does something that feels offensive.
I believe that people are good, and I try to give the benefit of the doubt, but when this does happen I really try to remember Who I’m there for. He’s the reason.
I’ve seen a lot of things while being out on the water, but nothing like this. Scroll down to my HOME section to read about how we took part in the rescue of a stranded boat and how we weren’t the only ones who jumped in to help.
We love going out on the boat! The scenery, the memories, the fresh air, it’s always a 10/10 experience. When we are out on the water we always make sure to have our radio on, just to make sure we are in thee know if anything is going on. Usually, we don’t hear anything.
It was a ‘Mayday Call.’ We heard the frantic voice giving out as much information as possible; they were taking on water and couldn’t find the source and they were a red sail boat.
The lesson I learned in this ordeal will stay with me forever.
This experience has obviously been super impactful to me. It’s been a great opportunity for me to reflect on how urgently I go to the rescue. As I pondered about that, I was drawn to the story in the New Testament when Jesus calls Peter to follow Him.
“How descriptive, how powerful, how rewarding when properly applied in human conduct.
We invite all to serve the Savior and walk in His paths straightway. There is an urgency for all of us who have this knowledge of His divinity to act upon it without hesitation or delay. The time is now.
He has invited us to come unto Him, and the best time to enjoy His companionship is straightway. We can best get on the course and stay on the course by doing as Jesus did—make a total commitment to do the will of His Father.” – Marvin J. Ashton
