The Ascension of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

"The Feast of the Ascension of our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ is celebrated each year on the fortieth day after the Great and Holy Feast of Pascha (Easter). Since the date of Pascha changes each year, the date of the Feast of the Ascension changes. The Feast is always celebrated on a Thursday. The Feast itself commemorates when, on the fortieth day after His Resurrection, Jesus led His disciples to the Mount of Olives, and after blessing them and asking them to wait for the fulfillment of the promise of the Holy Spirit, He ascended into heaven." - See more at:

Chocolate Cheese Pudding

God inspired me to made for my boys this raw pudding, as I was not sure what to do with some of the left over mascarpone. (I just did not feel like making Tiramisu today). I wanted something fast and also gluten-free.
Ingredients for 2 servings:
1 banana
2-3 tbsp raw honey, to taste
2 tbsp cocoa or chocolate powder
1 box of mascarpone cheese (1 cup)
Directions: In a blender add all the above ingredients, mix well for 3-5 minutes until a smooth cream forms. Pour in the serving glasses and sprinkle some chocolate chips on top. (For me and my husband I added fresh mint and peppermint leaves). Enjoy!

My Favorite Breakfast

I wanted to share this yummy omelet I tasted one morning. Since then, I  cannot stop making it for breakfast at least once or twice weekly.
Garlic Chives Omelet
2 tbps butter
2 pasture-free eggs
1 cup fresh garlic chives, chopped (I used the Chinese variety, which are juicy and ribbon-like; Botanical Name: Allium Tuberosum)
Salt to taste
Directions: In a stainless steel pan heat the butter on medium heat, add the chives; cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the eggs and salt. Cover the pan and cook for 5 minutes.
The omelet was served with freshly squeezed orange juice and ½ cup of freshly picked blueberries.
