I love it when I can buy something that has multiple uses, and Texas Pete Hot Sauce is just that.  Not only is it a great condiment, perfect for spicing up and getting the full flavor out of hot dogs, fries, pizza, soups, and sandwiches – just to name a few, but it’s a great ingredient to have on hand.  Did you know you could use it to amp up anything from ribs to barbecue – or even use it to make red velvet cake icing??  Now that is what I would call a multi-purpose ingredient essential in your pantry!  And the great thing is that Texas Pete offers such a variety of products that can help improve the taste of every meal.

Check out just one example of a dish you can make using a Texas Pete Hot Sauce:


Doesn't that look amazing?!  It tastes as amazing as it looks!  Lucky for you, I get to share one of Texas Pete Hot Sauce recipes with you!  With the recipe included below, you can make 2 quarts of Texas Pete® Zippy Tie Dye Coleslaw.  This would be a great dish to make for a family barbecue!  And wouldn’t it be a surprise to everyone that the secret ingredient was a Texas Pete sauce – definitely a memorable dish you can pass on to others!

INGREDIENTS

1/2 head Red cabbage, shaved thin
6 Tbsp Brown sugar
3 Tbsp Red wine vinegar
1-2 Tbsp Texas Pete® Hotter Hot Sauce
1 Red bell pepper, finely julienne
1 Yellow bell pepper, finely julienne
1 Green bell pepper, finely julienne
1/2 cup Radishes, sliced thin
1/2 onion Red onion, julienne paper thin
2 carrots Carrots, fresh, grated on the large shredder
1 tsp Caraway seeds
1 tsp Celery seeds
2 Tbsp Parsley, fresh, minced
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
To taste Salt and pepper

DIRECTIONS

1. Place the thinly shaved red cabbage into a large mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar, red 
wine vinegar and the Texas Pete® Hotter Hot Sauce and mix well. 
2. Let this mixture marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes before adding all the 
remaining ingredients from the bell peppers to the mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper 
and mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

Check out where you can find Texas Pete Hot Sauce at a store near you!  

I’m looking forward to finding ways I can use Texas Pete Sauces to improve the taste of some old boring recipes I have and can’t wait to try some of Texas Pete’s delicious other recipes (you can too! – http://www.texaspete.com/recip…).  I would love to hear some of the unique ways you might use Texas Pete Sauces in old – or new – recipes.  Be sure to use the hashtag #TexasPete so we can all share in finding some new great recipes!

Book Review: Where Courage Calls by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan



I received a complimentary copy of Where Courage Calls by Janette Oke and Laurel Oke Logan in exchange for this honest review by participating in the Bethany House Publishers blogger review program.  I was not compensated for this review; all opinions are my own.

________________________________________________


Where Courage Calls is a companion story to Hallmark Channel's TV series When Calls The Heart.  It follows young Beth Thatcher, who, inspired by her Aunt Elizabeth, feels the call to leave her privileged life in Toronto to teach in the small, struggling mining town of Coal Valley in Western Canada.  When Beth arrives in Coal Valley, the culture shock almost causes her to question her ability to complete her one-year contract.  She finds a town still in the midst of a tragedy - the loss of almost all the men due to a mine collapse, an inadequate classroom - the old town tavern, but also a group of women and children in desperate need of God's love.

Throughout the pages of this novel, with the help of Molly, the boarding house owner where Beth lived and a woman of wisdom, Beth not only learns about the struggles of life, but she also learns more about herself as she is brought to prayer and a stronger trust and faith in God.  She finds she is a beacon of hope in this small town and must take each and every opportunity to share the love of God to the families of Coal Valley.  Interwoven softly and slowly is also a sweet love story between her and two mounties - one she has known all her life, and one she is introduced to during her time in Coal Valley.

Having not seen Hallmark Channel's TV series, I did not know what to expect with this novel.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading it though and look forward to the chance to not only see the TV series, but also read the books that inspired the series.  I enjoyed the development of the story lines of all the major characters, although minor characters and their story lines often seemed to come and go and almost seemed to be left incomplete at times.  

I really enjoyed seeing the growth of Beth as girl leaving her protected life into a woman of confidence - in both herself and more importantly, in God.  Overall, I would definitely recommend this novel as it is one filled with the struggles of life and relying on God to transform a hopeless community into one with Him as the focus.

Book Review: All Things Hidden by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse



All Things Hidden


I received a complimentary copy of All Things Hidden by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse in exchange for this honest review by participating in the Bethany House Publishers blogger review program.  I was not compensated for this review; all opinions are my own.

------------------

All Things Hidden takes you back to the 1930s during the time of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's mission of the Matanuska Colonization in the beautiful, yet isolated, Alaskan country.

Being the only doctor in the area, Harold Hillerman and his daughter Gwyn, a nurse, take charge in preparing a medical clinic for all the families chosen to partake in this new journey.  In need of help, Harold contacts a young doctor from Chicago whom he had mentored years prior.  Dr. Jeremiah Vaughn, in need of a change after a broken engagement, gladly accepts - with the big secret that he had just been stripped of his medical license.

Follow along as the Hillerman's and Dr. Vaughn help as the new community struggles to rebuild their lives, build new homes, and learn to grow their own food before the long, harsh winter comes.  Join them as lessons are learned and hardships are overcome, as fears are addressed and hearts are transformed.  This is a story of new beginnings, overcoming life's difficulties, perseverance, hope, and love.

Overall, I really enjoyed this novel.  Though it started very slow, and ended very quickly with lots of action, it left me wanting more as I fell in love with the characters and story lines.  Most of the characters were well developed, except for Clarence, the book villain.  I felt as if his back story needed to be told in a little more detail instead of just being mentioned a few brief times.  The overall message of this story is one of hope and trusting in God in all situations.  A message we all need to be reminded of at times.  If this were to become a series, I would definitely be picking up the next book!
