Christmas & the New Year!

Well it’s happened again, Christmas has come and gone with the blink of an eye!!! We’ve started a new family tradition of sharing what we are thankful for and it’s really opened my heart to the work of the Lord in our daily lives.


 I am most thankful for Jesus my risen Lord and Savior, for his unending grace and that nothing can separate us from His love. Bowen and I had a great Christmas spending time with family doing  a whole lot of being together and whole  lot of eating delicious food.


I bet you can guess what to expect on Mississippi-made in 2016: healthy recipes and healthy eating. I enjoyed all the sugary sweets but am very much looking forward to nourishing with whole foods. Here’s a look back at the week in pictures; maybe we should call this post the Mollie blog? I love my little niece so very much! IMG_3135

My mother really is the best cook in the world, she doesn’t do anything in the kitchen half way: including these homemade cinnamon rolls.


She made the dough in the bread maker then rolled it out, added lots of sugar and fresh grated cinnamon then topped the warm rolls with homemade cream cheese icing.

  1. 1 recipe pizza dough
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1 T ground cinnamon or fresh grated (use half)
  5. 2 1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  6. 3 tablespoons milk
  7. 5 1/2 ounces confectioners' sugar
  8. *1 tsp of vanilla extract, or maple
  9. Beat ingredients together.
  1. Remove dough from bread maker and roll out onto a floured surface. Top with sugar and cinnamon then roll the dough away from you into a tight cylinder. Firmly pinch the seam to seal and roll the cylinder seam side down.
  2. Using a serrated knife, gently cut the cylinder into 2-inch rolls; yielding 8 pieces.
  3. Arrange rolls cut side down in the baking dish; cover tightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator (up to 16 hours) until ready to bake. Bake on 350 for 15-20 minutes, to test doneness, stick knife in rolls and when it comes out clean they are ready. Top with icing and enjoy!

They were so good she made them 2 days in a row..this is the reason I am about to head to the gym. Leave a comment below if you’d like the recipe! We started our Christmas day with these cinnamon rolls then had fried shrimp and homemade crab cakes for a light lunch and finished off supper with the biggest ribeyes you’ve ever seen-they didn’t fit on the plate 😉



I am so interested to hear how you’re kicking off 2016, do you make resolutions? What’s at the top of your list?? I am not big on resolutions I don’t think- I just want to spend the next year being diligent in the Word, listening to His voice and spirit.


Also on my list for 2016 : taking care of my body the very best way I know how..for me that means lots of veggies, fruits and nourishing foods with my days starting with some form of exercise ( I cannot wait for three more weeks until that means running!!!) Leave a comment below with your number 1 resolution for the year! 


Ill leave you with a look back at our top cookie pics for 2015!
