    A good Gossip Recipe

    Take a harmless event
    And in any ugly motive
    Add a suspicious overtone
    Stir in your own opinion
    Put in a good measure of “They say”
    And imaginary details to heighten the taste
    Sprinkle well with the spice of rumor
    Heat slowly over the flame of envy
    Serve secretly and as often as possible
    To anyone who will give attention

    A Happy Home

    4 cups love 5 spoons of hope 2 cups loyalty
    2 spoons tenderness 3 cups forgiveness 4 quarts faith
    1 cup friendship 1 barrel of laughter

    Take love and loyalty, mix thoroughly with faith. Blend it with tenderness, kindness and understanding. Add friendship and hope, sprinkle abundantly with laughter. Bake it with sunshine. Serve daily with generous helpings


    God bless my little kitchen
    I love it's every nook
    And bless me as I do my work,
    Wash pot and pans and cook.
    And the meals that I prepare
    Be seasoned from above
    With Thy blessing and Thy grace,
    But most of all Thy love.
    As we partake of earthly food,
    The table for us spread,
    We'll not forget to thank Thee, Lord
    Who gives us daily bread.
    So bless my little kitchen, God,
    And those who enter in,
    May they find naught but joy and peace
    And happiness therein.


    Thank God for dirty dishes,
    They have a tale to tell.
    While other folks go hungry,
    we're eating very well.
    With home and health and happiness
    We shouldn't want to fuss.
    For by this stack of evidence,
    God's very good to us.

    A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen and this kitchen is delirious!
    No husband has ever been shot while doing the dishes.
    A husband is someone who takes out the trash and gives the impression he just cleaned the whole house.
    A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.
    They shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator.
    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused.
    A clean house is a sign of a misspent life.
    Help keep the kitchen clean-eat out.
    Housework done properly can kill you.
    Countless numbers of people have eaten in this kitchen and gone on to lead normal lives.
    My next house will have not kitchen-just vending machines.

    Recipe for a Day

    Take a dish of water, cold, a little leavening of prayer, a little bit of sunshine gold dissolved in the morning air, then add to your meal some merriment, a thought for fail and kin (and as a prime ingredient, plenty of work thrown in). Then spice it all with the essence of life, a little whiff of pay. Let the good old book and a glance above complete a well spent day

    Recipe for a Good Cook

    2 c desire to cook 1 Tablespoon originality
    1 cup filled to overflowing with love 1 Tablespoon spice of life
    1 cup creative ability dash of imagination

    Blend well and place in a sunny, cherry kitchen, but not any warmer than you like. Makes for a lifetime of surprises in good eating.

    Recipe for Friendship

    A friend is a push when you’ve stopped, a word when you’re lonely, a guide when you’re searching, a smile when you’re sad and a song when you’re glad

    Recipe for Happiness

    I have a little recipe that isn’t hard to make but you must always start as soon as you awake.
    Take a great big mixing bowl and fill it with a smile. Mix half a cup of sunshine with good deeds to last a while.
    Add a pinch of work and play, a pinch of thoughtfulness and care. But don’t bake it in the oven, just spread it everywhere.

    The Marriage Stew

    Marriage has to be like a stew. To be complete, to be perfect, to be nutritional to the body, mind and soul it must have the right ingredients. There are no ingredients in the world that blend so well as those used to make a stew, it is the total meal!

    2 concerned persons
    2 pinches of understanding
    2 cans of trust
    Plenty of honest friendship
    2 cups love
    2 tsp patience
    2 well rounded measures of sex

    With the above ingredients on hand lets get started on our happy chore of putting together a good, wholesome hearty marriage stew.
    First combine the 2 concerned persons with the 2 cups of love in an adequate, comfortable mixing area. Next blend in the understanding and patience and beat lightly with a spoon made of laughter until the mixture is smooth and fluffy.
    Now add the 2 cans of trust and pour the mixture into the casserole of life and place over very how heat to simmer.
    This is also the time to add tears, dreams, touching, remembering or any other spices you feel will make your stew more exciting.
    As the mixture simmers sauté the sex in tenderness and perhaps a little wine on special occasions. Add this to the main casserole until the desired strength is reached.
    While the stew is cooking you might want to sprinkle in a little singing, dancing, playing or praying you be the judge. Cook to taste; garnish with a kiss or tow and serve with the honest friendship.


    To Preserve Choice Children

    1 large grassy field pinch of brooks and some pebbles
    ½ dozen children 2 or 3 small dogs

    Mix children and gods well together and put in the field, stirring constantly. Pour the brook over the pebbles; sprinkle the fields with flowers. Spread over all a deep blue sky and bake in the hot sun. When thoroughly brown, remove and set away to cook in a bathtub.

    I Am The Queen

    Oh, I’m the queen of my little kitchen
    What a wonderful privilege is mine,
    As I reign in my little queen-dom
    Giving my pots and pans all a shine.
    You see, I’ve been given a calling
    So great, how it blesses my heart
    The business of feeding my family,
    Tis a wonderful culinary art.
    The planning of meals and preparing
    Is a challenge that calls for great skill.
    How to balance the proteins and veggies
    Good dietary rules to fulfill.
    On the tip of this lest is to please hubby,
    And consider his favorite food,
    While using the resources I’m given
    Coming up with a menu that’s good.
    So I chop and stir with great fever
    As I blend and I mix and I baste
    Adding herbs and seasonings important
    So each dish will be pleasing to taste.
    It’s nice not to be rushed in my cooking
    When there’s plenty of time to prepare,
    But a simple meal, too, can be special
    When it’s served with kind loving care.
    My heart is so filled with God’s blessings
    As I consider the gift of each day,
    For the heart of the home is the mother
    Setting the tone with the words that I say.
    May my home and my heart reach to others
    With hospitality warmed by your love,
    So that others may come to know, Jesus
    Bu these gifts you’ve sent from above.
