“Give us this day our daily…..”

There is something special to celebrate, cook and eat everyday. Our “cook the calendar” theme complements our belief that yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future and today is a “gift” from God—and that is why it is called the “present.”  In time, we hope our blog will be filled with daily reminders—if not literally daily bread recipes—of His divine providence. So we count our blessings and “cook the calendar” when we can.

Below is a list of recipes by day (or click on the Categories widget on the sidebar for full posts per month). Click on our Recipes page to see recipes by type (starter, entrees or desserts). This Cook the Calender page is a work in progress as we are gradually building our blog. We will fill in the rest of the dates and add links to the recipes in time. Thanks for your patience and your encouragement!
