PROUD TEACHER

Well, I'm humbled and proud...can you be both at the same time??

I'm humbled with the opportunity to share my love of cooking and baking here at Villa Ramona with the cooking class once a month.

I'm proud, because Cornia (the manager's daughter and one of the students) is really taking the class seriously and doing her share of baking.  

In our first class we made banana bread.  She is being creative and brought me some of her "Banana Bread Hearts" for Valentines Day.  She's learned my motto "test the recipe".   She brought them in a darling pink box and they were delicious.  Do you see any thing she has learned... a "princess of drizzle"  HaHa.  

Another reason I'm proud is one of the ladies last week who came to class when we made scones made a batch for her family.  Her son Marco came by for a cookie and couldn't wait to tell me his mom was in my class and made scones.  I ask if he liked them and he was all smiles.  He is glad his mom is coming to class.


We enjoyed having our daughter, Michel for dinner last night and I made a beef pot pie, and a batch of scones to send home with her.


Hope you're having a good day.

  4. That drizzle is an art, I'm telling you! She learned from the best! haha...I love how they come and share what they've learned and made at home!

    That beef pie looks to die for...pretty enough for a magazine. I really need a bird pie vent, don't you think? Maybe sometime soon one will hop into my shopping cart. haha...

    1. Oh Betsy, I thought you'd like that she is a drizzler, and really good at it. It's very rewarding to see them actually go home and try some of the recipes.

      Yes, you need a Pie Bird....Be sure to share when you find one. I have my black bird, and Sue gave me a rooster pie bird, I need to show it next time.

  7. I love how God blesses us with a variety of ministries. Who would have thought a cooking class could bring so many continuous smiles? Your friends and their children will remember you for a long time to come.

    1. The cooking class, Martha, and the article in the Villa Newsletter is opening up new doors of ministry. And I thought I was retired...HaHa.

      I hope I've planted more than cookies, I pray the love and care I put in them makes a difference.

  8. I love that you share your love of cooking and baking with others. What a gift to have. And then you get a sweet gift from Cornia in return. She must have been tickled... and maybe a wee bit nervous... to bake for the Drizzle Queen! But she did and I think that's wonderful.
    I like this quote by Henry Adams:
    "A teacher affects eternity. He can never tell where his influence stops."
    But I would change it to "she" and "her." xox

    1. I love that quote by Henry Adams. I will remember it and maybe put it on my refrigerator. My mother was my teacher, and she influences my life every day...even though she been a resident of heaven since 1991.

      She was very happy that my dearest and I liked them. Now she has confidence to make them for her friends.

    1. Thank you Vee, I'm finding new ways to share a ministry in the Villa...not a Pastor's wife, but as an encourager. Walking the walk, and talking the talk of my faith.
