A Time And Season For Everything

The weather has been cold and snowy and I just want to curl up with a cup of coffee and a good book.  Spring seems so far away as they are calling for a couple more inches of snow tomorrow.  *sigh*  I'm ready for sunshine, yard sales and the farmer's market.

Lately all I want to cook are comfort foods.  Breads, muffins, casseroles.  And while these recipes are not as healthy as their raw veggie and grilled chicken counterparts, I have decided that's ok. Because

There is a Time and Season for Everything.

We still eat pretty darn healthy around here.  We watch our sugar intake, eat whole grains, snack on raw veggies and fruit.  But sometimes, you just want something warm and gooey, like homemade Macaroni and Cheese.  And that's ok.  Because,

There is a Time and Season for Everything.

Once Spring and Summer hit and the farmer's market is overflowing with fresh fruits and veggies to experiment with and munch on, my recipes will reflect that time, that season.  For now, you may see more recipes like this instead.  And that's ok.  Because,

One thing you will notice though, is that my recipes will still be homemade, which is really more the point.  Even when we prepare comfort foods and yummy desserts to indulge in, we can do it homemade!  You know what ingredients are going into what you eat and you are not adding any additives, preservatives and other chemicals to your food. Soon, oh so soon, I will be posting recipes full of fruits and veggies and summer time deliciousness.  And that will be perfect for that season.  Until then, go ahead, make a Snickers Cheesecake from scratch and enjoy it while you can, because the season of comfort food is coming to an end.  And that's ok, because, you guessed it,

There is a Time and Season for Everything

And I just love it that God made it that way.
