Writer’s Corner Chef of the Month Yaritza Reyes (11/16)

clean-enchiladas-1DCL Ministries is pleased to have the creative mind behind Yarie Cooks & Meal Prep Business as our featured ministry for this month of November.  As we interviewed this woman of God, most recently, on Dovetales radio show we discovered that the road traveled was not always an easy one, but just as she chose to cook healthy, nutritional meals, she also chose to be governed by God as well. It is no surprise that her favorite scripture is 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the has come.” To listen to Yarie’s Dovetale, log on right here.

In the meantime, let’s treasure God and all he has done, everyday, especially on Thanksgiving–which is around the corner. He deserves all the glory and all the praise.

The Holidays are upon us! This means we will be having gatherings with friends and family for the next few weeks, potlucks at work, and everything in between. A lot of the time, we want to try something new for our holiday spread, but we might find it hard to deviate from the comfort food we’ve grown up to love. Fall ingredients are everywhere. Pumpkin spice is everywhere, even in our coffee! Sweet potato is a staple of the holidays so, I want to share with you an easy and delicious recipe using sweet potato, but not in a pie, or a casserole.
