Steve Saint Update

I am so glad to hear about Steve Saint's recovery, however slow and gradual. If you haven't heard about Steve's accident, you can catch up here at his website. It was a heart-breaking and tragic accident that left him and his family wondering if he would walk again. He has since walked and after 6 or 7 weeks, he has finally left Shands to return home to continue his recovery and rehabilitation. 

I'll never forget our field trip to meet Steve and his staff at I-TEC in Dunnellon, FL. We live just a short distance away. He is a wonderful, sweet and caring man with a heart for the lost and for missionaries that serve them.

Continued prayers for Steve and his family are MUCH needed! :)

Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies

Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies

The first time I bit into this cookie I was hooked. They were decidedly the best chocolate chip cookie I had ever had. Thanks goes to my bestie, Kate!


2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) lightly salted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


    1. Preheat the oven to 350ยบ.
    2. Whisk the flour, soda and salt together in a bowl.
    3. In another large bowl, mix the butter with a wooden spoon to lighten it a bit and then mix in the sugars.
    4. Add the water, vanilla and eggs to the butter mixture.
    5. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined and then fold in the chocolate chips.
    6. Using two soup spoons, drop the cookies 2" apart onto two nonstick or greased cookie sheets.
    7. Bake for eight minutes, rotating the sheets after four minutes.
    8. Remove the cookies to a wire rack to cool, and repeat the process with the rest of the batter.
