It's party time! Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Okay, friends! Let's party!

Welcome to Taste and See God's Goodness! I'm Marsha and I'm the chief cook and bottle washer around here.

Pull up a chair and share a piece of Nutella Walnut Strudel with me.

I started blogging so I could share recipes with family and friends. I love to try new dishes, too. I'm a well-known tweaker, though - meaning I rarely ever follow a recipe exactly. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

I also love my family. I've been married to my handsome husband for 12 years. We have two children - Mr. Lego who is 10, and the Princess who is 8. They are my joys!

Another passion besides cooking is homeschooling. We're just about done with our fourth year, and I love it more now than I did when we first started. Occasionally I'll mention what we're doing in school. I'm not a homeschooling expert by any stretch, but I'm happy to share what I've learned along the way.

More important than all of those loves is my love for Jesus. I'm not perfect but I do strive to please Him. My life would be a mess without Him. Sometimes I'll share what He's doing in my life. If you're a Christian, too, let me know! I love meeting new brothers and sisters in Christ!

So, that's my blog in a nutshell. Thank you for dropping by and have a lovely time at the party!

PS - if you want to participate, too, just click on that big banner at the top of this post and join in the fun!

  3. Hi Marsha- popping in from the blog party too! :) I love the colors you chose for your blog- I'm looking at this teal for my dining room, I've been homeschooling our nine kids since the mid-1990s- I hope you will stop by Stories for the Homeschool Heart- here:

    Hope you'll grab the HH button on the right hand side of our blog- Feel free to post it with "I have a Homeschool Heart" on yours. If you decide to do that let me know and if you're interested, I'll do a little review post about your blog on mine (hop over to see what I mean-examples there) God bless and have a GREAT day :)

  34. Hi! I'm stopping by from the UBP - trying to visit all on the link for Christian blogs by the end of the day (but I'm not going straight down the list so I still have quite a few to go!). I'm #73 (Being Made New - on that list) - and I'm a homeschooler, too. I hope you might be able to pop in at my place sometime soon.

  35. Coming over from UBP! Your nutella walnut strudel looks delicious! Following your blog now too. Unlike you I have to follow a recipe exactly as it is written. Wish I was more of a "tweaker" and could just put stuff together.
