Ratatouille. It smells like summer. As a matter of fact, Ratatouille the perfect summer side dish, as it utilizes fresh summer vegetables, and it is usually served at room temperature, or even chilled on really hot summer days. Check out Sr. Tracey Dugas’ recipe at CatholicFoodie.com: http://catholicfoodie.com/sister-ts-ratatouille-recipe

Sometimes it's OK to stock up on frozen pizzas. A couple of weeks ago, Katie Sciba (of Katie Sciba: Writer, Speaker, Radio Host) joined me on The Catholic Foodie Show. We did talk food. Really. We did. A little, at least. But mostly we talked about anxiety and depression… and little ways that we can see hope even in the darkness. It all started with a blog post that Katie wrote the week before our interview. It’s called The Blog Post about Anxiety. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend doing so. I wanted Katie to join me on the show to talk about that post because it was so raw, so real, and so… hopeful.

Have you ever noticed that sometimes it seems like everything in life conspires against us when we desire to draw closer to God? Dr. Paul Thigpen joins us today to share some hope and encouragement from the saints. Author of Saints Who Battled Satan, Dr. Paul Thigpen understands that just as the New Testament states, in our Christian journey we daily encounter three obstacles: the world, the flesh and the devil. With love and gentleness, Dr. Paul engages us with stories from the lives of seventeen saints… practical wisdom that can help me and you to draw closer to God no matter the struggles we encounter in our daily lives.

Heather King – author of Parched, Redeemed, Stripped, Stumble, Shirt of Flame, and Poor Baby – joins me on The Catholic Foodie Show today to talk about her latest book Loaded: Money and the Spirituality of Enough.

Whether rich or poor, most of walk through our days wounded in the area of money and finances. We fear money. We fear not having enough money. We fear what would happen if we had too much money. We fear what people would think of us if they knew how much money we make and what we spend our money on. The way that we see and use money intimately affects the people in our lives.

Most books about money are written to help you make more money. But what if more money isn’t the answer? What if the real source of our fear is our relationship with money? In Loaded: Money and the Spirituality of Enough, Heather King shares her own story of recovery around money. In doing so, she opens a door of opportunity for us… an opportunity to examine our own relationship with money and to open that relationship up to being healed by our loving God. Listen to our conversation here: http://catholicfoodie.com/heather-king-loaded-money-and-the-spirituality-of-enough

It’s been kinda quiet here at CatholicFoodie.com for the last few weeks. It’s Lent and I’ve been focusing my time on prayer and family… trying to allow God to re-charge my batteries.

I just had to share with you, though, some of the exciting things that have happened the last few weeks. On the show today you can find out about:

my Lenten journey so far
my visit with Hallie Lord on the Jennifer Fulwiler Show
my recent speaking engagement at Mater Dei High School in Orange County, CA
and all the awesome people I got to visit with at the L.A. Religious Education Congress

I know we are in ‪#‎Lent‬ now, but I just have to share this post with you. On Monday’s show… I brought you along with me to New Orleans for the Thoth parade for an on-the-street experience of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. We talk Lundi Gras (Fat Monday) and ‪#‎MardiGras‬ (Fat Tuesday). You get to peek behind the scenes of how the Mardi Gras floats are made, and find out what you absolutely need to know to parade like a New Orleanian at Mardi Gras! It’s a family event and this show proves it. You can listen to the show to find out more… but even if you don’t listen, you need to click here to see all the photos from Mardi Gras day with the Daughters of St. Paul nuns in Metairie!

Dr. Brant Pitre joins me today on The Catholic Foodie Show to discuss his new book (to be released February 2, 2016) entitled The Case for Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ. In The Case for Jesus, Dr. Brant Pitre, bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, taps into the wells of Christian scripture, history, and tradition to ask and answer a number of questions about the origins and validity of the Gospels as well as one big question: Did Jesus of Nazareth claim to be God?
Though a seminary professor of Sacred Scripture, Dr. Brant Pitre is also a husband and father of five, and this book is written in plain language that everyone can understand. With his signature enthusiasm and with a deep love for both Jesus and the reader, Dr. Pitre offers compelling reasons for concluding that the four Gospels are first-century biographies of Jesus, written within the lifetime of the apostles and based directly on eyewitness testimony.
Buckle your seatbelt and get ready for an exciting ride to answer the question of a lifetime asked by Jesus, “And you, who do you say that I am?” Click here to listen: http://catholicfoodie.com/dr-brant-pitre-and-the-case-for-jesus-the-biblical-and-historical-evidence-for-christ

The Catholic Foodie... Where food meets faith!
Introduction
The Catholic Foodie brings much more to the table than merely recipes and reviews. The show highlights how food - good food - can be a sign to us of God’s love and care for each of us and our families. The tagline, "where food meets faith," speaks volumes about the importance of family, which is so often developed around the kitchen table.
