"And Samuel said, hath the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of the Lord? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams, for rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry." 1 Samuel 15:22-23
I had a fun weekend with my baking friends, after what felt like too long a break. This was one of the recipes we tried.
The original came from Rachael Ray, but my friends and I doctored it up with extra spices and vanilla.
My husband's birthday was last week, and he requested a lemon cake as a part of our celebration. I decided poppy seeds would be the perfect complement and set out to find a recipe.
I ended up combining a couple — the first steps of this one come from a far-more-complicated version that called for separating the eggs and whipping the egg whites before baking.
"The face of the Lord is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit." Psalm 34: 16-18
Do you have a favorite onion variety?
My favorites depend on the time of year: green onions in spring, Vidalia or sweet onions in summer.
Onions are usually a food that we grow into enjoying over time. It is not surprising, because many varieties have a strong flavor and, after all, cutting them can make you get a little teary-eyed.

April showers and showers and showers. The sun shines for a bit, then the clouds move in and the Earth gets drenched again.
I'm a sucker for baked treats, but am always trying to look for ways to make them a little healthier. This recipe does just that.
Its inspiration — a dish called Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies on AllRecipes.com — calls for more sugar and all-purpose flour.
