  1. My Passion. . . . . . . .

    @ Lexia. . . .I fell in love with cooking at an early age... for Christmas I got an Easy Bake Oven when I was 8 (I wanted one SO much!!) . . . . I cooked cakes and ANYTHING I could in that thing!! Chuckles!!!! Then it just grew from their...I watched my Mom & my Grandma cook & I would help them...took Home Economics in high school (that's what we called it then. . .giggle!) Boy! Then Food Network came!!! I was in HEAVEN!!!!! Thus My Passion for cooking was inflamed the more!!!!!! Now. . . . .I'm planning on opening my on restaurant in the near future!!!! Oh! And Merely....I'm an expert at using the microwave too!! For reheating that is!!!! Lol!!
  2. My Passion. . . . . . . .

  3. Is "sex only within marriage" an idol?

    @L8dyluck. . . . . Believing sex within marriage is not an is a command from God not to commit sexual sin (fornication). Their are scriptures that tell believers to do just that. 1 Corinthians 6:18 (Message Bible)..."We must not pursue the kind of sex that avoids commitment and intimacy, leaving us more lonely than ever—the kind of sex that can never “become one.†There is a sense in which sexual sins are different from all others. In sexual sin we violate the sacredness of our own bodies." Hebrews 13:4 (Message Bible) "Honor marriage, and guard the sacredness of sexual intimacy between wife and husband. God draws a firm line against casual and illicit sex". Their are more scriptures that warn us as believers against the dangers of sex outside of marriage....these are the two that really show how God truly regards how sacred sex is & the only place for it to be expressed is in marriage. I truly hoped this has help clarify it for you!
  4. My Passion. . . . . . . .

    @Josh. . .total hilarity!!! Even you can be a pro in the kitchen! With a few basic tips. . . and you got it! Vince. . . . . A bowl of cereal does not a recipe make.. Lol! But, its a start! Chris~ flipping an omelet is with the wrist, make sure that the omelet is folded well & not sticking to the pan. Move it around in a circular motion while holding the pan off the heat. If it moves freely then your good. Now, jiggle it to the forward end of the pan. . .then flip your wrist with a quick upward motion, as if your scooping up something. It should land toward the middle back of the pan.. And Voila!! A flipped omelet! Chopping vegetables. . . .it kinda depends on what your cutting...if its an onion (yellow or white), this is the best way; first cut the end that does not have the roots on it. Now, turn it up on the cut end. Slice it down the middle through the root end. Lay it flat, then cut though lengthwise from roots to end, then make two cuts horizontally a 1/4 of an inch a part. Be sure to keep you fingers back when making the cuts. Now cut straight down (vertically) until you reach the root end of the onion. You have just diced an onion!!! *their will be a few tears!* Giggles! The differences between a soup and a sauce is simply.... A sauce is usually a reduction of wine and or liquid your dish was cooked in..its normally cooked down to intensify the flavor & finished of with a little butter it give it glossy smooth finish...its usually spooned over & around the meat, fish or game. Its not limited to just proteins. A sauce can on a vegetable dish or what ever! A Soup can be made from just about anything! Using chicken, beef or vegetable stock as the base, It can be creamy & smooth, cheesy, hot & spicy, chunky & hearty, thick or thin consistency. Made of all vegetables, meat & vegetables, made of all beans. . . .the possibilities are ENDLESS!!! Its basically a entire meal in a bowl! Whew! I know its ALOT! But I hoped it has help Chris!!!

  10. Interracial Marriages

    Race is NO issue to me....What is most important to me is that we have the same beliefs & faith in God.....And our values & walk with God are the same....As Vince mentioned their can be issues with family members, society or friends....If you think about it.....even if whoever your dating wasn't from a different race their can still be issues with those I afore mentioned. That's why in the scripture it reads "a man should leave his mother & father & cleave to his wife...& a wife should leave her mother & father & cleave to her husband".....because they are now one.....a separate entity unto itself. As Rookiepilot & Vince said.....who wouldn't want the parents, friends, like their mate!! Sometimes its not possible....but in most cases they eventually come to see how Amazing that person coming into their family really is!!! Society has gotten much better with interracial dating & marriage....I see it so much more frequently now, living in the Midwest.

  15. Positive reinforcement for the ladies

    Read the article last night......I was absolutely impressed by her!!! She echo's how all of us ladies on here feel...I truly wish more women in the world really knew how valuable they are...And that they truly knew their self worth!!! God's sees us as his beloved....his cherished one! I realized that by reading The Song Of Solomon......a very beautiful love story in from the Bible.....not only does it represent the respect, awe & beauty of growing love, it also shows how he (Solomon) waited for her until their wedding day....and how he praised her for keeping herself for him....but mainly it show's how God truly sees us as women, how lovely, glorious & worth pursuing we are!!! If the man/boy you are with doesn't see you like that........Then you definitely need to show him the front door & let the door knob hit him right in his BUTT!!!!!
