If you’re interested in purchasing any of these books, I’ve listed them all on this Amazon page, so they’ll be easy to find. Note that this is an affiliate page, so your purchase benefits me as a writer.
If you prefer to use a digital resource for your Lenten prayer and meditation, you’ll definitely want to explore the Magnificat Lenten Companion app for iOS. I examined its many features in my monthly Tech Talk column.
Catholicmom contributor Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle has written a memoir that views suffering through the lens of faith. I reviewed “The Kiss of Jesus: How Mother Teresa and the Saints Helped Me to Discover the Beauty of the Cross.”
At Cook and Count
Sesame Chicken Tenders: Crispy chicken tenders are always a family favorite. These no-fry chicken tenders get a little extra crunch from the sesame seeds, but don’t dry out in the oven thanks to a sour-cream-based marinade.
Gnocchi e Fagioli: Here’s a meatless dish that comes together in about 20 minutes! It’s easy to make and very heart-healthy. You won’t even miss the meat in this simple meal. Add other quick-cooking fresh vegetables to change up the flavor.
Maple – Brown Sugar Chicken Thighs: The sauce on this chicken has a subtle sweetness. While the recipe’s a little more complex than my usual cooking repertoire (because I’m lazy), this is definitely worth the extra effort. It goes with any of your favorite side dishes.
There’s still some Monday left in today. It’s been a busy day around here, what with school getting out tomorrow and all…
There’s nothing new on the recipe front, but just wait until Friday when I’ve got something really special over at Cook and Count!
Tech Talk: Whatever the Weather. How long until that thunderstorm comes your way? My favorite weather apps will keep you up-to-date on all those summer storms. Also, you’ll find out where Hubs, AKA The Meteorologist, gets his weather info (hint: it’s not an app!)
Unleashed Book Club: Chapter 1. At CatholicMom.com, we’re reading Sonja Corbitt’s Unleashed. Various authors host the book club discussions each week. I discuss the connection between hospitality and fear.
Sunday Brunch. Here’s a big bunch of the week’s best articles at CatholicMom.com. I curate this weekly feature.
Rounding up my posts at other venues for the past week!
At CatholicFiction.net, I reviewed Birds of a Feather by Kaye Park Hinckley. This collection of top-notch short stories is a must-read for Flannery O’Connor fans. Hinckley’s fiction is pure poetry.
What’s CatholicFiction.net? It’s an editorially-independent project of Tuscany Press staffed by volunteer reviewers who are eager to share new and classic Catholic fiction. If you’re looking for a good book to read, CatholicFiction.net posts reviews every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
At Cook and Count, new recipes include a whole bunch of meatless meals (Lent’s coming up) and a special dinner:
Father Brice’s Peasant Pasta, a simple and healthy meatless dish.
