You Have To Charge For Your Product

Do you feel guilty about charging for your product?  Do people try to haggle prices with you at show events?  Do family members expect it free or get a “family discount”? Heck! I’ve had all types of scenarios happen to me.  One time a one man under paid by  .25 cents to make a point that my product is not worth another quarter! I’ve had girl’s that were so drawn over to my booths with Mom’s viciously dragging them away and giving me that eye look all while I’m smiling back because I knew my product was worth something.  And something they didn’t want to pay for until they see their daughter’s face.  In the bible it does say about contentment. And GOD’s love is rooted inside of me and if I trust him to give me the gift of making something then I can trust I can charge for my product.  Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me. If HE is giving me the courage, platform, gaining confidence, the ideas, the ease of tearing down invisible walls, and going for it, then who can be against me.

091619 Charge Contentment EK SFF.png

Yes, charge for your product without any guilt, my sister friend! You are not charging them only for your material but rather for your time.  You are charging for your family. You are charging for your bills, your vacations, your kids needs and yours.  Perhaps for a car payment.  You are charging for all the love, time, sweat, tears, and time take away from your family to put something back in your financial pocket. Don’t ever feel guilty about charging for your services, products, or items.

How To Make Lo Mein Noodles

You’re Invited over to our Sunday Dinner! Today it’s about not being intimidated by new foods! Lo Mein has been on my mind lately. There are all sorts of noodles. Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.  I stretched myself by making Chinese LoMein Noodles!  I love food and trying new recipes, especially on my guinea pig family! I didn’t starve them this time to eat a good lunch.

091519 Lo Mein Noodles Ek SFF .pngI’m only posting the LoMein instructions because I haven’t yet perfected my sauce.  I know there are a lot of sauces out there I can try but I was rushed this one particular day and had to use what was handy.  I’ll say I was pretty handy at conjuring up a quick Pantry homemade sauce to drench my meat and noodles in.  It was very authentic. Let’s begin with noodles!

091519 Lo Mein Noodles Ek SFF  (2).png

Begin with boiling a big pot of water until it boils.  Drop in the noodles and give it a quick stir to loosen up the noodles and prevent some sticking. Follow the instructions and you will have the best noodles on the block. Leave in the hot boiled water for about 5 minutes then drain and ready to serve with your choice of toppings.

091519 Lo Mein Noodles Ek SFF  (3).png

I’ll post my super fast version of this flank steak and sauce.  I simply marinated 2 pounds of flank steak with  about a half cup of soy sauce, ginger, and garlic for over 2 hours. Dried up any moisture off the meat before sauteing in a cast iron pan with some sesame oil and black pepper.  Next, I tossed the meat and cooked until just browned. Tossed in the oven at 350 degree oven and baked for another 10 minutes while the noodles were doing their thing. With the reserve sauce in pan, I mixed in some corn starch, beef seasoning, and water to make a thick sauce. You can easily toss in some veggies such as sliced mushrooms. Once meat is ready, sprinkle in some chopped green onions, and serve as show below. You can always use the shortcut of store bought teriyaki sauce over the meat and sauce.  Or some siracha to spice it up a bit. 091519 Lo Mein Noodles Ek SFF (1)

Enoy!

Fish Taco Sauce

You’re Invited to our Sunday Dinner!  Today I’m only making the sauce. Fish Taco Sauce because it needs time to allow all the flavors to permeate together for a minimum 2 hours. The longer the better the taste. Taste it now and see what a difference it is 2 hours later!  Amazing taste!

Sunday Dinner 090819 Fish Taco Sauce


Here’s the list of ingredients you will need.

1/2 cup mayonaise and sour cream

2 chipotles minced

1 garlic minced

1 tbsp. mexican oregano

Juice of 1 lime

1 tsp sea salt

1 mix bowl, chopping knife, mixing spoon, lid/foil to cover bowl


Top with some chopped slaw, jicama, or mango! What amazingly tasty blends! I think this would taste great on grilled chicken, chicken tacos. Next time perhaps.

From my kitchen to your home.

Bon Appetit!

Sensational Salmon Patties

Sensational Salmon Patties Sunday Dinner 90119

You’re invited to our home for Sunday Dinner!  This week it’s a Sensational Salmon Dinner.  Last week was a honey glazed salmon & if you have left overs, use those for this recipe in place of the canned salmon.  Yes, I said canned! Ewww!  But not so! My Momma wouln’t feed us junk. Only love food. Let’s begin!


Step 1: Gather Ingredients: 1 can salmon 15 ounces or fresh (if fresh or my left over salmon make sure to add about 1/2 cup of oil. If not, you can leave out but it won’t have that same moisture as the can will.)

1 tbsp. Salt Free Lemon Pepper

4 to 5 medium size potatoes peeled.  I used a mix of red and yellow.

2 eggs

Canola oil to coat pan about 1/2 inch of oil as you go along cooking these beautiful tasty sensational salmon patties.

Step 2: Pour in the salmon and de-bone. Take out all the big spine parts and take out as much of the smaller bones.  The really small translucent bones are ok to leave in.  They will break up because they are soft. Peel your potato and mash with  a smasher masher in a mixing bowl with the salmon to the consistency you like.  I like ours to be well blended. Then add a the lemon pepper and mix well. Next add 1 egg to begin with.  This recipe will call for 2.  If too mushy then add 1 more small potato or half of medium.

Step 3: Mix, mash, and form into patties.

Step 4: Preheat cast iron pan on medium heat with oil and begin to cook each side until a crisp crust forms around edges and flip and cook until done. You can add additional lemon pepper while they are cooking (which I always do as they are cooking.)

Serve with any flavor rice, noodles, or veggies! It’s also an excellent appetizer!

Bon Appetit! From my kitchen to your table!

Be Faithfully Driven, Daily Living, Deep Faith Monday, Faith, Family, Perseverance

With Eyes Wide Shut

When GOD came to Mary to inform her that she would have a baby born out of wedlock, she trusted him with his will and ways with her.  Can you do that?  Can you go about life and make decisions based on his will and ways?  Or do you fight against every decision you make.  Causing self doubt and second guessing yourself?  GOD has his own way of speaking to us individually.  Even when we are doing great, HE speaks to us.  When we are weary, HE speaks to us.  HE sees in us before we see physically.

Trust GOD 080519 Estela Kelley SFF

When I am in deep need of guidance, I ask him for guidance and let the thought process rest so that HE can take over and show me the guidance sought. Sometimes I have worries and issues but then I remember to let it go with prayer and find some peace doing other more important things. My priority is to prayer first, release, and find peace. If I only place worries first then I’m constantly looking with eyes wide open and never finding the solution, creating more worries, and finding no peace.

Place your trust in GOD with eyes wide shut and let HIM take over your situation.

Don’t Get Snarky, Get You Some Jesus

As I was reading my go to devotional this AM I decided to dwell more into it based on lives perspectives.  Many times as an individual we come across many types of personalites, situations, and circumstances that most of time have nothing to do with us.  Some times people, kids, spouses, colleagues and neighbors will toss in a snarky remark, urgent, or under lying malicious remark/comment. Now in defense of both sides, I sometimes notice that it’s not their entire fault but it’s inherited from their family baggage. In reality, this baggage has nothing to do with us but more of them. So what do I do or suggest?  Stop, Drop, and Roll!

Monday 071519 EK SFF

No of course not! In all seriousness, I would suggest to Stop, Turnaround, and Run but during that time, I would silently pray for them.  Now, if I see that they are in deep misguidance I would suggest to ask if I could pray for them. You would shocked as to how many people would say yes.

There is no point in getting snarky back. No point in remarking or encouraging such behavior and think this is a reflection of you.  This has no bearing or weight over you unless you give it power. JESUS is your stronghold. Psalm 27:1 The LORD is my stronghold of my life. Make HIM the stronghold over your thoughts and over the people that are acting up around you. Make HIM the stronghold of how you react and simply walking away from such environment or comments will prove to you how the LORD is taking a stronghold of you. Let JESUS cover you in HIS blanket of everlasting love, guidance, and strength this week and always going forward.

Jerk Pork Chops

Jerk Marinated Porkchops EK Sunday Dinners

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner!  You are always invited to have a seat at our table, chat, eat a meal, and have some coffee afterwards. Guess what today’s meal is?! Yep! Jerk Pork Chop with some easy store bought ingredients. The other white meat.

Let’s begin! Grab 2 pans. Once for the sauce and the other for the veggie mix.


I’ve provided the Memphis spice found at your local HEB if they have them in your town.  If not use this chosen spice to sprinkle on the pork chops, the marinade/dipping sauce and paired it with the perfect veggie mix.

Note: As for the Jerk Marinade, preferably purchase at your local grocery store. Not very many on the market unless you are very familiar with the company and shipping/refund policies.  You can also substitute a very zesty favorite BBQ sauce of your choice.

Why A Scarcity Mindset Is Keeping You Poor Podcast Episode 30

Why A Scarcity Mindset Is Keeping You Poor

Why A Scarcity Mindset Is Keeping You Poor? Scarcity is in all areas of our walks of life and things. Sometimes we need to be aware and limit ourselves to this.  What is a scarcity mindset? It seems so vague but stay with me here as I demonstrate some of these layers. Layers such as having more than enough, hoarding, jealousy, unacknowledgement, and inherited scarcity. And how to grow out of this mindset. This was a testy podcast, I must admit but as one matures into the right spirit of things is when there is real change, growth, and gratitude!

Marinated Flank Steak

Welcome to our Sunday Dinner!  You are always welcomed here to have a seat at our dining table, kick back, chat, have some dinner, and maybe coffee and dessert afterwards. Like my easy and Amazing Strawberry Dump Cake!

Today what’s on the menu is Marinated Flank Steak! Complements of my son, Aidan. He’s the original chef who made this for us (minus the veggies).

Marinated Flank Dinner EK Sunday Dinners

Let’s begin with! You guessed it, gathering our ingredients!

Remember to wait for that glossy shine in the oil to shine thru before tossing in your steak onto the hot pan. It doesn’t take long.  If the oil burns, it can change the taste of the entire meal so make sure and have all the prepping done. At this stage, you can also toss in a few red pepper flakes, if you like some heat to it. As the oil heats, the red pepper flakes will release it’s natural oils into the pan. Discard all of the remaining marinade.

Serve with steamed rice in a bowl and pour the hot marinated flank steak veggies all over the rice. And enjoy!  This is the perfect quick family meal.
