Chicken Dinner

Congratulations Miss Amy from Picket Fence Cottage, you have won the Sugar Pie Sisterhood giveaway! When your package of goodies arrive, I hope you put your sassy little Mary Janes’s Farm apron on and stir up something sweet to eat! Many blessings to you my Sugar Pie Sista!


I want to send out a big THANK YOU to all of you gals (my new sista’s!) for signing up for the Sugar Pie Sisterhood! I hope y’all liked the newsletter I sent a few days ago! And I also want to thank all of you for the absolutely fabulous, heartwarming, encouraging and sparkling comments you left for  me! WOW! What a way to make a girl feel special! I am so glad y’all like the new look! (I’m so proud of my boy!)Please keep in mind that this is just the beginning of more to come! A couple of gals mentioned that they wanted to see photos of my home…I’m happy to say, it’s in the works! Along with more recipes, videos, product recommendations and a few more surprises up my sleeve! Please know that it’s just little ol’ me working on Sugar Pie Farmhouse (with some help from Dusty after he’s worked hard all day at his job) so it is going to take a little time for me to add all of the fun stuff that I am envisioning.

Playing Checkers

You know, my mission is to encourage homemakers of all ages to turn their hearts back home and create a warm and cozy nest for their loved ones, so I have to make double sure that I keep my own home and family as my priority. I am a homemaker, just like you, with a lot of responsiblilities like doing the laundry, cooking, taking care of my home, grocery shopping, Doctor’s appointments, school events, church activities, spending time with my hubby and kids, maintaining friendships, getting some walking in, and of course spending time with the Lord and reading my Bible (and lots of other stuff!). In our home, we have decided that after dinner is family time, so I don’t get back on the computer until the next day. I know y’all understand! The good news is that slowly but surely, as the weeks go by, you will see more and more new ideas to help you make your house a Home Sweet Home! Thank you for being patient!

Talk About Sweet!

Strawberries Close

Isn’t it wonderful that fresh strawberries are now gracing the produce section of the grocery store? Oh happy day!


I want to share with you one of my favorite dips that goes lusciously with these juicy red berries!

Marshmallow Creme

There are only two ingredients!! One jar of Marshmallow Creme and one 12 oz. tub of regular Cream Cheese.

Cuisinart Mini Prep Plus Food Processor

I use my mini Cuisinart Chopper (See it on Amazon!) to whip it together. Because it is so thick, you need to pulse it a few times then open the lid to stir it with a spoon, repeat a few times until creamy. You could also use an electric mixer to whip the two ingredients together.

Strawberry and Creme

This is so simple yet the flavor is so delicious!

Strawberries and Creme

Fresh washed strawberries and this easy fruit dip is a wonderful treat the whole family will love!  This would be an easy and yummy addition to your Easter Celebration! Enjoy!

This Easter as you savor the chocolate bunnies and the Easter egg hunts with baskets full of jelly bean-giggles, be sure to savor hope, mercy, grace and love. That’s what the Cross brings to all of us. Jesus left the glory of Heaven to come to this earth to take the punishment for sins  He did not commit so that we could be with Him for eternity. He could not bear the thought of living forever without us so He died for our sins…that is how much He loves us. The Bible says that the payment for sin is death….. He took our place. Such love…such wonderous love!

Cross with heart

This twig cross was made by my daughter Ashley about 15 years ago, I bring it out every year  to remind us of the true meaning of Easter. Notice that Jesus is no longer hanging on the cross…because the wonderful news is He rose from the dead and is now preparing a place for us far beyond anything we could ever imagine!

Easter Decor Ideas

“There are many rooms in my Father’s house; I would not tell you this if it were not true.”
– John 14:2

Cherry Blossoms

“It is finished!” He cried. And the great Creator went home. (He’s not resting though. Word has it that His tireless hands are preparing a city so glorious even the angels get goose bumps upon seeing it. Considering what He has done so far, that is one creation I plan to see.)” ~Max Lucado

Have a Blessed Easter!
