Brazilian Fish Stew

A spicy, warm, delicious fish stew to try on a cool day!

Typically, when we buy fish, we tend to make the same meals over and over again: fried fish or breaded and flavored fish with vegetables. It doesn’t matter what kind of fish it is, they always end up in one of these three entrees. So, we decided to try something different when we got a great deal for a big bag of small Tilapia fillets. And, what do you do when you want to try a new recipe? You go to Pinterest. As we were scrolling down, we found a very unique idea to make it into a Brazilian fish stew!

#LoveBlog2017 Day 21 | Celebrations

Celebrations don't have to be for big events. Focus on the small. That will always cheer you up!

Celebrations don’t have to be big. They don’t have to be for big accomplishments or event. They don’t have to be big parties. Celebrations can be for things you love. Having become a wife and a mom has taught me a lot about celebrating the little things. It’s taught me to focus on the little things in life. Life has become a lot more fun by celebrating the small moments.

#LoveBlog2017 Day 17 | Wishes

Wishes and Dreams are synonymous. Dream big. Wish big.

“A dream is a wish your heart makes.” We all know the lyrics to the Cinderella song. To me, dreams and wishes are the same thing. I’m not talking about dreams we have when we are sleep. I’m talking about day dreams, dreams of what our lives will be like in the future. Dreams and wishes are nice things to think about. And, I agree with Britt of My Little Sunshines that dreams don’t have to be big or radical. These are some dreams and wishes I have:

#LoveBlog2017 Day 10 | Secrets

Secrets. Everyone has them. Sometimes, they can be absolutely harmless, like secretly loving to watch trashy shows like Bachelor (I don’t, and I know I’m going to receive a lot of hate for that one!). They can be gross like having an 11th toe (I don’t). Or they can be harmful, especially in relationships. That is one thing I absolutely loved about the book Love Me True by Dr. Jason B. Whiting–it focuses on the different ways that couples deceive each other. It could be intentional or unintentional. Whiting shows how harmful any secret or deception or withholding of truth can be. I seriously recommend reading it to any couple wishing to work on communication, transparency, and improving their relationship.

However, I don’t really want to take a serious take on today’s #LoveBlog prompt. I know the guiding questions had to do with relationships and secrets and love. But, since it’s Friday, and I want to go back to some #oldschoolblogging (and since it’s my birthday and I can do what I want),  I want to do a more light-hearted post. So, here are some secrets you may not know about me! Continue Reading

#LoveBlog 2017 Day 9 | A Servant’s Heart

Christians are to be Christ-like. One of the best way to do so is by performing service. During His earthly ministry, not only did Christ teach and preach, but He served others: He healed the sick, ate with the poor and sinners, and forgave. He is our King, Lord, and Savior. But, He acted as a servant during His life: during the Last Supper, He washed the feet of His disciples! We should follow His example of having a servant’s heart. Continue Reading
