It’s already happening


Crabapple leaves are already turning - 08/15/2013


The crabapple and aspen leaves in my yard are already starting to turn!

Needless to say, I am not ready for fall. 

We’ve had a cool summer with rain and devastating hail… I hate to see our chances for warm weather come to an end.

I’ve been going through my Pinterest boards, looking for some fall inspiration. 

I need a little help this year switching to fall mode :)

Hope it is still warm where you are… have a great weekend, friends!

Words for my grandson…

Jacob Leroy:

For the Lord has chosen Jacob to be his own.

Israel to be his treasured possession.  

Psalm 135:4

Jacob Leroy

This is my new grandbaby, Jacob Leroy!

Isn’t he so, so sweet?!

Jacob Leroy June 2013

I really love the meaning of names and found that his name means:

Jacob = To track or follow
Leroy =  King

Jacob - June 2013

In the Bible, Jacob was one of the most important men in the old testament. 

He was the youngest son of Isaac and Rebecca, the twin brother of Esau and husband of both Leah and Rachel. 

God later changed Jacob’s name to Israel and the twelve tribes of Israel evolved from his twelve sons!

Awww... Jacob Leroy,  June 2013

Jacob Leroy,
May you always follow the True King and seek His presence. 
May you forever walk in the sunshine of Jesus love. 
And may your life always be filled with joy, wonder and laughter...

Sara, Jared and Jacob - June 2013

“No misfortune is seen in Jacob.  The Lord his God is with him.  Numbers 23:21

Oven Baked Barbecue Chicken & the Secret to Real Grill Taste


the Prairie Cottage: Oven baked barbecue chicken with grill tasted

I’ve had this recipe pinned for awhile and finally tried it a couple weeks ago.  The recipe is from Cooking with K and promises “real grill taste” in oven baked chicken.  Her secret is simply baking the chicken in a cast iron pan and it is by far the best oven barbecued chicken we’ve ever made!

K has a wonderful post with beautiful photos and I will refer you to her for the original recipe.  I only made a 1/2 recipe, as 10 chicken breasts were more than we needed.  Also.  I had to make a couple substitutions… I couldn’t find the Montreal seasoning and substituted Paula Deen’s house seasoning.  And we already had KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce, so I used that instead of Sweet Baby Ray’s.  My changes are below:

Oven Baked BBQ Chicken

5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (rinsed and patted dry)
1 teaspoon Paula Deen House Seasoning 
1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce

~Preheat oven to 375 degrees  
~Spray a 12-inch cast iron skillet with non stick cooking spray; set aside.
~Season chicken with house seasoning.
~Place the chicken in the cast iron skillet and bake for 45 minutes.
~Remove from the oven and generously spoon barbecue sauce over each piece of chicken.
~Turn the oven up to 425 degrees and return the chicken to the oven. 
~Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until chicken is done and barbecue sauce has thickened and slightly browned.

Hope you enjoy this BBQ chicken as much as we did!
