Restaurants can face fines if it’s discovered that they dispose of grease improperly. But restaurants are just part of the problem. I never poured grease down the kitchen sink simply because long ago in my early adulthood, I clogged the sink up with cooking grease. But, until I took this class, I didn’t think twice about flushing grease down the toilet. However, the water from the toilet goes to the same place as the water from my sink, and it flows through pipes and will clog just as easily as it did in my own personal kitchen sink all those years ago.Pin It
Ash Wednesday comes from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of repentance. Traditionally, the ashes used are gathered after the Palm Crosses from the previous year’s Palm Sunday are burned and mixed with oil. In the Roman Catholic Church, Ash Wednesday is observed by fasting, abstinence from meat, and repentance. It is a day for contemplating one’s transgressions. Ash Wednesday is also the first day of Lent.Pin It
This is the perfect comfort food casserole. It’s also a big favorite at pot lucks and church dinners. It is also a quick fix. The cheese sauce can easily be made while the pasta is cooking. The timing almost always works perfectly for me that when I’m done with the sauce, the pasta is perfect and ready to drain. If you leave the turkey ham out of the recipe, it’s the perfect casserole main dish for a Lent evening.Pin It
This is THE EASIEST meal you can make for your family. My children love it. They get seconds and thirds. Throw it on a plate with some green peas and a garden salad, and you have a healthy, home cooked meal that takes you as long as it takes the macaroni to boil.Pin It

This is my family’s traditional breakfast for Christmas morning. It’s a very light dough, crispy, with a delicate sweet flavor brought about by sprinkling it with sugar and cinnamon. I only make them for Christmas so that we have something different and new to look forward to every year.Pin It
