With fervor, the young lady scrubbed the dirty dinner pot. She was growing frustrated with the seemingly enormous stack of dishes that awaited her attention, for she wanted to finish a sewing project after kitchen duties were completed. Her siblings had vanished after the meal was over, leaving her alone to clean up. Sharon inwardly grumbled in self-pity, when her thoughts were shocked to silence when her mom walked in the kitchen with a sober face. Her announcement was startling.

Our Heavenly Father gives us many things to be grateful for. Just take a moment and make a mental list of those things you can thank God for.
Your list probably included some of the following: family, friends, a warm house, food, salvation, etc. These things are easy to be thankful for, but did your list include: siblings that are difficult to work with?

Ever since I started cooking as a young child, my parents have reinforced this important principle for quality food:
“Quality food should not only taste good, but it should
look good, be good for you, and be good for the budget.”
This principle has served to guide me as I’ve progressed in my cooking skills. However, it is challenging to apply this principle to desserts, especially the “be good for you” part! Here are some of the ways I’ve learned and ways I’m working on to make desserts fit the principle:
