Who’s the incredible cook and photographer behind this marvelous ebook? My good friend Marillyn Beard from Just Making Noise. She, her husband Jon and their three children live in Honduras as missionaries for youth (visit the Rancho Oasis for Youth website). Here are a few words from Mare about her life and family’s ministry.
“I am a wife to 1 amazing man, a mama of 3 beautiful kids and a missionary in Honduras. We are currently living on 6 and a half acres of land surrounded by gorgeous pines and mountains, starting up our ministry Rancho Oasis for Youth.
I’ve been writing my blog, Just Making Noise: Sound Bites From a Deaf Mama, since 2009 because I love to share my passions for healthy food, wholesome lifestyle and photography. I also love to make healthy sweets (especially ice cream!) and try to cook almost everything I can from scratch.
My family and I are learning how to run a productive homestead and currently learning many things from gardening and caring for animals. We desire to teach the people in the surrounding villages how to raise their own food through the square-foot gardening method and caring for goats to provide milk. Your purchase of this book is helping us reach those goals to not only help the Honduran people, but to also spread the gospel of Jesus Christ! Thank you!”
She’s inspirational! And such a sweetheart. I hope to meet her in person someday!
My Favorite Parts
Now you all know how much I love cultured foods, so I’m sure you’re not surprised that I am most excited about the 9 cultured milk recipes — the lime and white chocolate and vanilla with honey cinnamon swirl are likely to hit the Harmon household soon.
Secondly, Mare included one of my 7 tips for great homemade ice cream (to not fill the freezer container all the way) — and she brought three more tips to the table that will surely help my ice cream making skills from here on out.
Mare, you’re obviously a pro at this. Thank you for taking the time from your busy, fulfilling life to create such a beautiful and comprehensive resource for all of us!
