How many of those that read this blog,    text on a regular basis?  I have no clue how people do it.
It takes me 20 min. to type an average size text to someone. The small buttons, never-ending screens annoys me.  ( No offense to those that do text.)

Another update on Me:  After about 6 months to a year, I have finally replaced the power pin on my laptop. YES!!!!!  I turned it on yesterday, it started up. (I think 🙂    I was so happy, because my sister had accidentally given my motherboard an alcohol shower. I was very, very disappointed. Then, I looked it up online, and everyone suggested giving it an alcohol soak.  I am taking my time putting it back together though. Me no remember how it go together very well.

P.S.  Dad suggested getting  me whatever I wanted from Dairy Queen for actually getting my laptop to work. ( He is a computer technician, and I am one in training. Hence the slow updates.)
However, I like to watch my weight, meaning not eating a 5,000 calorie ice cream sundae.  I told him it wasn’t too good of a suggestion.

A synopsis on what foods I do not like:
avocado, sweet potatoes, eggplant, canned spinach, frozen squash, enchiladas, Cheerios, pure chocolate on pure chocolate ,etc.

I am also a cook-in-training, a recording technician-in-training, a music player-in-training, and a lot of stuff-in-training; the reason why my updates are very slow.(I’m in-training on that too.)
See how much my dad does?

I am finally here to share some of my favorite recipes with everyone.

Scalloped Apples:
3 cups of peeled, sliced apples
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup  of sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
3 Tbsp. butter

Combine all ingredients in a large microwave-safe bowl.
Place in microwave on High for 3 minutes. Stir, add 3 Tbsp. water.
Heat again for 7 minutes, watch and stir carefully. When the apples are tender, take out and let cool.( You may need to cook longer if you have a lower heat oven.) You can also make this recipe on the stove. Adjust liquids accordingly.

(You can adjust the measurements according to your tastes.)

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup raisins

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 °F. In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth.
Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt;  stir into the sugar mixture. Next, stir in the oats and raisins and drop rounded small balls onto greased
cookie sheets. Bake 10 -12 min until golden. Do Not over bake.  Let cookies cool for 2 minutes and then remove from pans.

If you want to use this recipe for chocolate chip cookies, substitute most of the oatmeal for white flour. And, add chocolate chips  🙂

Shalom

Our third cd should be done soon. Please pray for the producers.
I have noticed that the more publicity on one event often supersedes another. For example, everyone is focused on Haiti,  yet people are trying to push in bills left and right.  They get in what they want while everyone else is focused on something, and we don’t find out until it’s too late.

Some things I enjoy doing: cooking, reading,listening to music, riding my bike, knowing the latest news,  and pretending I’m a really famous singer.  Latest news on me?  I’ve finalized three songs for our third cd and you should be able to listen to them soon.

If you enjoy listening to Sacred Name music and don’t mind a little modern music, check out Qodesh’s music. http://www.forhisname.com/MUSIC.htm

I love playing bluegrass music.  I like doing runs and scales on the bass to it. We have some friends that play bluegrass religious music, and I look forward to playing with them.  It is fun.

We have been doing raw recordings of the songs on our next cd. When we post it up on Praises For Yahweh, there will be updates from me.

I like baking cakes. They’re fun to decorate( most of the time), and they are one food that appeals
to most people. One thing that is quite contradictory though, I don’t happen to like to eat it very much.It’s a little too sweet.

Thanks to everyone for the views. It’s great to see that people like this blog.
Shalom, Micaela

Confused!

New Years Day has come and gone, 2010 has now started in the eyes of the American population.

It leaves me wondering that the mainstream population still has not questioned a new year starting in the winter though. Most people don’t know where the names of the months came from.And almost all never question why the Israelites went looking for the new moon to start their months. They take what their preacher says and apply it to their life. They have never discovered the origin behind all these holidays. (By the way, I do not find getting drunk a good way to start any new year.)

I am going to start integrating parts from my personal life into these blog posts. Topics will include: cooking, computer technician work, recording, news from the world, etc…..

Thanks to those who have commented on this blog. If you have any ideas, stories, jokes, or even want to contribute, please email me at micaela@praisesforyahweh.org

Please pray for the victims in the recent earthquake in Haiti.
