Valerie's favorite family Christmas Recipe

What means the most to me during the holiday's is the warmth of the season - the uniting of friends & family. Therefore in the beginning of the "cold" season I make a batch of my homemade "Hot Cocoa Mix". Not only does it last for my family, but I can easily spread the warmth to my newspaper carrier, mailman, & neighbors because this recipe makes a half gallon!




Homeade Hot Cocoa Mix
6 cups box dry milk
5 oz. powdered creamer
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 lb. box chocolate flavored drink mix (like Quik)
white chocolate chips and/or mini marshmellows.

Mix it all together. Place 3Tb. mix into a cup. Add 1 cup boiling water. Top with whipped cream.


 


♫ ♪ ♫ ♪ Christmas Notes from Valerie ♫ ♪ ♫ ♪


I have always felt that presents should be about LOVE...not just something to give... to give. The items I offer, are to bring our love one's into a healthier level, in turn - many more years with us! And that is the ultimate gift...TOGETHERNESS!

Tops picks of the season & why? With so many quality programs with proven results, it's hard to answer this one. It really depends on the person. If someone really doesn't like to workout but understands the benefits of it or if "time" is a factor in general, then I recommend a quick in and out routine: Tony Horton's 10-minute trainer - a full program in 10 Minutes! Believe me it is a workout--breaking a sweat and asking for water! The routines are simple and it comes complete with a chart to give you the best results. In a few weeks the person will see results.


Sales/Specials: For every person who orders any product between November 30th & December 15th I will mail them two Food Journal's to help them on their journey of weight loss. Each journal offers a one week record of what someone is eating, motivational sayings to keep them on track, and shows them how they can turn their transformation story into $25,000! Furthermore, for each $25 spent on my site; I will send a $5.00 Gift Card to Subway.

 




Today's Giveway:

"Stillwater Promise" a delightful modern story of faith, forgiveness and love... centered around an enchanting Bed & Breakfast during the Holidays! (Barbour Publishing "HeartSong Presents" Series, Christian Fiction, Romance)



From the Back Cover

"How can Sara trust a man who abandoned her twice?

Sara Lewis’s goal of running her own bed-and-breakfast has taken some pretty tough knocks. Now when her dream of moving into her B&B “castle” is finally coming true, the man who left her to raise their little girls alone shows up talking about his new faith and wanting to be her prince again.

Life has been harsh for James Lewis since he ran out on Sara for the second time. None of his hopes of success in the music industry have been realized. As a new Christian, he truly wants to make amends—but knows he won’t be welcomed warmly. When his mother calls with news of Sara’s “latest” man, James comes home to uncover the truth and try to be the daddy his girls need.

Will James and Sara surrender their marriage to the Lord and allow Him to heal their hurts? Or will misconceptions and selfish ambitions once again cause James to run?

“Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:12 "
