"Feasting" upon the Word

Awhile ago, I found this recipe for for a family home evening that included a lesson and a treat in one. I found it at FHE in a Snap . It is pretty clever. I did change it up a bit so here is my version.

Feast Upon the Word Cookies

3/4 cup ____________“The words of his mouth were smoother than ____” (Ps. 55:21)

1/3 cup _____________“Come unto me all ye ends of the earth, buy ____ and honey”
(2 Ne. 26:25)

1 1/2 cups _____________“To what purpose cometh there to me … the ____ ____ from a far country?” (Jer. 6:20)

2 _____________“As one gathereth ____ that are left, have I gathered all the earth” (Isa. 10:14)

1 tsp vanilla

2 cups _________“And Solomon’s provision for one day was thirty measures of fine ____”
(1 Kgs. 4:22)

1 teaspoon ___________“Take thou also unto thee principal spices … and of sweet ____ half so much” (Ex. 30:23)

1 teaspoon ___________“Ye are the ____ of the earth” (Matt. 5:13)

1/2 teaspoon ___________“The kingdom of heaven is like unto ____ (Matt. 13:33)

3 cups ___________“Nevertheless … ____ for the horse” (D&C 89:17)
1 cup ____________“And they gave him … two clusters of ____” (1 Sam. 30:12)

To start, beat the first four ingredients together. Next, mix in the remaining ingredients. Then, drop the cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Finally, bake at 350° F for about 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!

3/4 cup butter
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups sugar (I used 3/4 white and 3/4 brown)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda (this was the tricky one for the answer was leaven which is yeast. I figured that baking soda was the yeast for cookies, but possibly could have been baking powder?)
3 cups oats
1 cup raisins (since my family does not like
raisins we added chocolate chips).
VERDICT: It was a fun FHE. It helped me stress that just as we need to feed our bodies we need to feed our spirits also. The kids came up with reading the scriptures, praying, going to church and serving others. My husband added that not only do we need to read the scriptures but take them in, by really trying to understand what we are reading. Not just reading the words.
The cookies had good flavor. The family ate everyone of them. They were more cake like and were really dry. I don't know what I did wrong. If anyone has any suggestions please help me!!


  1. the soda might have given the cookies a cake-like taste to them, usually recipes have both soda and powder so try using 1/2 tsp of both

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
