Unleavened Recipes Needed for 2020
With the Feasts of 2019 now past, we look forward to the Abib observances of 2020. Two of the sisters at Holts Summit have recognized the need for a booklet with good recipes for the Feast of Unleavened Bread. They have collected a few but need many more. If you have any you have used and found to be good, please send them in! The more they collect the better the recipe book will be. Postal mail or email them to: mail@yrm.org

What was the first infraction recorded in the Bible?

A – Touching of the forbidden fruit
B – Eating the forbidden fruit
C – Adding to the law
D – Nudity

In Eve’s conversation with the serpent, she declares that she was not allowed to touch the forbidden fruit (Gen 3:3). Yet no such command is recorded anywhere. Upon touching it, and seeing that nothing bad happen, she was likely emboldened to go the next step and eat it. It is not clear whether Eve created this command about touching the fruit, on the spot, or whether Adam instructed her in this way in order to put a hedge about the true command, which was simply to not eat of it (Gen 2:17). When people add to Yahweh’s law, it always creates false expectations and unseen consequences.

Answer: (C).

The wages of sin are always paid.

Cream Puffs Recipe

1 cup boiling water

1 cup flour

½ cup butter (1 stick)

3 eggs, unbeaten

1/8 teaspoon salt

Add butter and salt to boiling water and stir over medium heat until butter is melted and mixture boils again.

Add the flour, all at once, and stir vigorously until the mixture leaves the sides of the pot.

Remove from heat and let cool for about 20 minutes – THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

Transfer cooled mixture to a large mixing bowl. With an electric mixer, beat in one egg at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.

Using a tablespoon, place dollops on an ungreased cookie sheet – you should have about 14 or 15 cream puffs.

Place the cookie sheet in the center of a preheated 450 degree oven for 20 minutes.

Without removing the cream puffs, turn the oven down to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and transfer puffs to a rack to cool. Cool thoroughly!

When the puffs are completely cooled, cut the top off of each puff and fill with vanilla pudding.

Frost the top with fudge frosting. You can change fillings or toppings of your choice.

It’s really good with chicken salad.
