Welcome Friends!!!

I am a scientist at heart, and my kitchen often looks like a laboratory with all kinds of jars and containers fermenting and brewing on the counters. I love to share my recipes, my herbal remedies and health tips, and I really LOVE to save money! We have a large extended family....two sons, their wives, eleven grandkids (and often a friend or two), my sister, Lanny's brother, and my parents that come over every Tuesday night for dinner...kind of a family reunion, only weekly instead of yearly! That adds up to from 17 to 22 or more people here every week. So I have to cook big, and cook economically!

So here we go! For all my friends and family that have been encouraging me to put all my recipes and ideas in one place like this....if you don't see what you are looking for, and cannot find it by using the "Topics" or the search field below right, just let me know and I will be sure to post it as soon as I can.

Be sure to check out our African Mission Adventure - we traveled to Malawi in August 2014 and you will find photo's and stories about our trip! LanDebLewAfrica.blogspot.com!!!

Lanny and I also have started devotional blogspots that you might enjoy:

Easy Fruit Salad

Put yogurt in coffee filter or cheese cloth and let drain for a few hours. You can also greek yogurt instead which does not need to be drained. Whisk first 4 ingredients in small bowl to blend; set dressing aside.

Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl. Cover dressing and fruit separately and chill until ready to serve, up to 6 hours.

Mix ½ the dressing into fruit. Let stand 15 minutes to blend flavors. Serve remaining dressing on the side. 

Have it Your Way, Every Way

1. Use Greek yogurt instead of plain yogurt. Greek yogurt does not need to be drained.

2. Use sour cream instead of yogurt for the dressing. Very Yummy

3. Substitute other fruits. I have used bananas, blackberries, raspberries, cantaloupe, honey dew, pineapple, kiwi, apple, strawberries, etc.

4. Make with vanilla yogurt
