Share the Bounty {Finding God's Grace Through the Spirit of Hospitality}

Book Description:  When people come into your home, what do they see? Have you prepared for their visit? Are your gatherings imbued with the sweet spirit of charity? Whether you're celebrating a joyous occasion with your dearest friends and family, welcoming overnight guests, or comforting someone in need, your home can be a sanctuary of Christian fellowship. Discover the scriptural basis for hospitality through this compilation of menus, each designed to complement life's most important occasions with the people you cherish.
Beautifully photographed and styled, Share the Bounty will inspire you to open your home and reflect God's grace to all who sit at your table. Serve Grilled Chicken & Wild Rice Salad with Coffee Mousse at a casual luncheon for your closest friends. Usher the new neighbors into your dining room for an elegant dinner of Sunday Rib Roast, or greet your out-of-town guests with Blueberry Peach Coffee Cake on their first morning in your home. Broaden your family's understanding of other cultures with Pollo San Miguel, a meal that reflects the flavors of another country. Scattered among the recipes is a selection of Scriptures, prayers, and poetry that will focus your heart on praise and thanksgiving as you prepare to share with others his provision in your home.

My Thoughts: I love to read cookbooks!  But Share the Bounty by Benita Long, Susan Wilson, Ann Mitchell, Sammy Anderson, and Steve Wingfield is much more than just a cookbook it's a beautiful book of art!
This lovely oversized book is chock full of recipes, gorgeous pictures and ideas for one to become a gentle and gracious hostess.
Each page that hosts a recipe or hostess thought/idea has a scripture at the bottom of the page that goes along with the presentation.
There are so many wonderful mouthwatering recipes for those special occasions in life but a flavorful muffin that I want to try is on page 171, applesauce Cranberry Muffins.  This is a simple recipe with ingredients from one's own kitchen. What I like about the recipe is that applesauce is used instead of oil making this a much healthier muffin for friends and family.  This is also a great fall muffin for those cool mornings.
There also great recipes for kids.  The delicious Macaroni Cupcakes on page 124 are sure to be a hit with kids and so fast and easy to make.
I'll also be making Aunt Emma's Tea Cakes on page 120.  Also, a quick and easy recipe that will please the cookie lover at our house!
I love this cookbook!
