Found this in Mom’s personal items:

1 cup : Judges 5:25 (last clause) – butter
2 cups Jeremiah 6:20 – sugar
2 tsp I Samuel 14:25 (last clause) – honey
6 Jeremiah 17:11 – eggs
½ cup cup Judges 4:19 (last clause) – milk
4 ½ cups I Kings 4:22 (proportion to taste) – flour
2 heaping tsp Amos 4:5 (leavenen)
1 cup I Samuel 30:12 (2 nd phrase) – raisins
1 cup Nahum 3:12 – figs
II Chronicles 9:9 (2nd phrase) to taste – spice
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
While you go through the pages of the Bible to find the ingredients you will rediscover the beautiful passages of Judges, those special deliverers sent by God to release the Israelites from their oppressors.
The Book of Samuel which authorities claim is the best specimen of prose in Hebrew Literature; Amos who provided so many pictorial allusions to the farming life of his day; and Jeremiah, the prophet, who never flinched from his duty. Perhaps you will agree that the Bible really belongs in any good cook’s kitchen, to be savored a little each day.

Our Sincere Condolences

I never knew my life without Marsha and Clem. My Mom and Marsha were the kind of best friends not many ever experience.
You are all on my mind and I pray for comfort for you during this time.
Thank you for sharing your Momma with me.
