Mama Hall's Cornbread Dressing (with Video)


2 Pans of Cornbread (If you don't know how to make cornbread here's that easy recipe:
2 Onions (Finely Chopped)
6 Eggs (This is NOT a typo)
1 Lg bag of Leg Quarters
2 Teaspoons of Sage
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 Box Onion Soup Mix
1 Box of Stuffing (For emergency use as you'll read below)


  • Boil the leg quarters making sure to keep plenty of water covering them until done (you'll use this for your broth)  When cooked peel it off the bone and set aside to cool.
  • Crumble up your COOKED cornbread into a large pan like the one used above.
  • Mix into cornbread chopped onions, sage, salt and pepper, onion soup mix, eggs, peeled chicken (all ingredients but the stuffing mix).
  • Slowly begin adding your broth (the water you cooked your chicken in) mixing until you can place your hand on top of this mixture and it feels moist to the touch but not overly soupy!  This is where that box stuffing comes in.  If you put too much broth and need to add more thickness use that stuffing!
  • Place in oven at 350 degrees (preheated please) and cook for 45 minutes!

This incredible recipe was passed down for generations, and my mom, Susan Hall, taught it to me. It's my favorite dish at Thanksgiving and Christmas, so with my mom's permission, I'm sharing it with you.    The secrets, she says, is the eggs, most people don't add enough eggs to their dressing.  If you try this recipe and enjoy it as much as I do, please share it and say thanks to my mom, who was kind enough to share her secret.  I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

My Support For Donald J Trump

Let me preface this by saying Trump is not a god, there is only one God, and he chooses people, sometimes very imperfect people to use to help share his will with people.  I do not worship Trump, I am not a racist, or a homophobe, but I am a person with extraordinarily strong convictions that line up with my Christian faith.  I’ve had people ask me how can I be a Christian when I write steamy romance, and I will explain like I explained to them, this is a gift GOD gave me, and I have used that ability to be a stay at home mother for my children.  The truth is I’m a married woman with five children and not the people I write about.  Another word I’ve heard from former authors and friends, is psychopath for supporting Trump as my president.  I would have to say the real people with mental issues are those who thought I was a psychopath because I chose to vote for a man that believed in many of the Christian values I do.  Let me be truly clear, my God loves ALL people and understands we are ALL sinners.  He tells us very clearly to LOVE ALL people in his word, the Bible.

I very rarely share my belief system in my blog because it’s a personal thing for me, as your faith should be to you.  Our family does not attend church, but we do follow the ten commandments and believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins.  A personal relationship with God has never meant I needed to worship with others outside our family for me.  I strongly believe many churches are no longer filled with the Holy Spirit, and that true faith comes from personal prayer.  With all that said, I’d like to get to the point of reaching out to you today.

This country is at a turning point, one we may very well never walk back from.  We are completely divided, and evil is filling the soul of many of those today.  The lockdowns have created a growing anger in this country that is being fueled by such great political divide that if we don’t find some common ground, we may no longer have a country.  Millions of Americans believe this election cycle was filled with fraud and will probably end up in a court of law before the President is chosen.  These are simple facts no matter how the media would like to tell you otherwise.   The media has been a great source of the strife we are seeing happening in the United States today.  I won’t delve into what my thoughts are on that but will leave it with they cannot be trusted. 

A great evil is filling the souls of countless Americans on both sides of the political aisle. As a Christian, I turn to the bible for comfort but for now all I see is the beginning of the end of days.   Dark times await us regardless of an outcome for this election.   A specific verse comes to mind.  I Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.  I personally believe that Trump is our last chance as a nation.  Regardless of your faith, or lack thereof, you may feel a growing sense of dread and wonder if there will ever be peace among our fellow citizens here in the United States. 

I don’t have an answer.  I was raised to believe in a New World Order, and I think we are moving closer to that every single day.  I do personally believe that the virus was a form of biological terrorism.  If you’ve never studied the bible and you’d like to understand what I’m talking about I suggest researching the Olivet Discourse.  I felt in my heart I needed to bring this message to my blog today, even though it will probably upset many of my readers.  At this time, the need to share my truth is more important than you liking me.  I pray for this country I love, and for each person reading this blog. 

My reasons that I support Donald J Trump are easy.  I am Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, a Christian, and believe he has done a wonderful job with our economy.  It really is as simple as that.

Did The Media Overstep By Assuming Biden Was President Elect?


When it comes to our election, all voters expect fairness.  This is the one thing both parties should agree on.  The 2020 election was unlike any in history, with more mail in ballots sent in than ever before.  Many videos have been released of ballots being thrown away, and I think we must all take into consideration that our voting system no longer works in the age of Covid-19.  Despite your political affiliation, as an American, you deserve a fair election.  Until these questions of fraud are answered, there can be no decision.  We must all stand together and demand all allegations of fraud are answered.  The media does not decide the outcome of an election.  We knew 2020 was going to be a different year, and now we have disenfranchised voters on all sides.  Did the media overstep by assuming Biden was president elect?  That's the question you need to ask yourself without thinking about which party you voted for.

The Exodus From Main Stream Media


Thousands of patriots are walking away from Main Stream News Media after their early call for a Biden win before all the votes were counted.  The buzz on the street from the Right is that this was all a media ploy to push Biden as the winner to take away the election by fraud.  Is it true?  That's a matter for the courts to decide and it does look like this election will end up there.  The biggest villain in the game?  Fox News, widely known as a conservative hangout for republican watchers.  Since Trump was elected into office, Fox News was the only main stream media source that gave the President a fair shake, according to Republicans, but they turned the tide and pulled in extreme left reporters and created a sinking ship for those that only watched for the conservative spin.  CNN was considered the left leaning news while Fox spun for the right.

Main Stream Media today is seen as a propaganda machine for political parties today according to many of the conservative viewers that I've spoken personally with.  People are disenfranchised about having the truth spoken instead of pushing an agenda.  If what the people are saying has merit, then Main Stream Media is no more than entertainment for the masses with no journalistic integrity left.  More and more conservatives are reaching out to smaller venues like NewsMax and Oann for their news, that fact is proven by the increased numbers both media corporations have gained in the last few months.  It's no secret that Main Stream Media is supported by advertising, and people like Bloomberg have pushed millions into left leaning stances.

Facebook and Twitter have both come under attack as well for censoring the conservative opinion, while blatantly leaving off attacks for left leaning liberal opinions.  With fact checks only being added to Republican posts, they have made an enemy of the right and conservatives are leaving those in droves to move to Parler and other sights like MeWe.  

America is divided, that has never been more clear than in the 2020 election.  The Patriots won't accept a Biden win without a court date and total recount of votes.  And if that vote overturns Biden's win it's unlikely Democrats will accept that verdict.  Either way our country has been torn apart by two ideologies that can no longer occupy the same space.  What's the solution?  That's to be seen in the upcoming months as our country currently seems divided straight down the middle.

Overcoming COPD with Vaping - My Story


5 years ago, I had lost my ability to sing. I couldn't breathe without coughing. I found myself choking and terrifying my family before being rushed to the Emergency room one night and hospitalized where I was diagnosed with COPD (Chronic Bronchitis). I had smoked two packs of cigarettes a day since I was 18 years old (over 25 years) and to make matters worse I was a respiratory therapist so addicted to cigarettes that I couldn't quit smoking. Even after trying every medical product on the market at the time (pills, patches, gums, hypnosis) I was losing my battle, and my life!

A friend on Facebook Dawn Thorp had long suggested (before my hospital stay) that I give vaping a try. I thought she was crazy (sorry Dawn) and this stupid electronic cigarette thing was just another waste of time. With my life literally on the line, I decided to give it a shot. The day I left the hospital I drove to my local vape shop that I'd driven past for two years rolling my eyes at.

That was the last day I smoked a cigarette. I started vaping and it's been five years since I've touched a cigarette! I have not been diagnosed with bronchitis or pneumonia in that entire time. Five years with neither of those when prior I had one or the other every three months. I can sing again. I can breathe without coughing. I don't choke and terrify my family any longer. My oxygen levels are consistently at 97 -98%. That is all the proof I need to tell anyone that Vaping is the way to finally destroy that smoking habit. I haven't had to use an inhaler again either! This is MY story!

Vaping gives adults a product that is so much safer than deadly cigarettes.  If you've never dealt with cigarette addiction, you can't possibly understand how hard it is to quit.  The media has done a horrible job trying to vilify vaping when not seeing the positive effects it's had for me and millions of others who struggled with this addiction.  The real scientific proof on vaping has been hidden by political motivation and stories like mine are buried beneath them.  One thing I can promise you is that there is not one single vaping advocate that wants underage children vaping.  Not one, and I've talked to thousands.  This is how we've overcome our deadly addiction to cigarette smoking, and reversed the possibility of long term problems that are associated with smoking.  

Simply put, an eliquid is comprised of four ingredients.  Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin, FDA approved food flavorings, and nicotine (for those that choose to use it).  Health organizations have listed over 7,000 ingredients in a cigarettes, so common sense tells you that vaping is the safer option.  FDA "Fact: There are more than 7,000 chemicals in cigarette smoke.  More than 70 of those chemicals are linked to cancer.  Verified link here:  FDA link
