    This recipe sounds so delicious! I thought I would print, but I don’t see that option. Is that available? BTW, you do such a nice job, and I love that “faith” is included!!

    I was so excited to try this recipe and I had all the ingredients ready to go. When I went to try to find the recipe, the recipe was gone. All it shows are the pictures of the meal. How do I find it again?

    Hi Jackie we are in the midst of a major website redesign so the recipe was missing for a few minutes, but is now visible again. Thank you for your patience!
