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

On the show today… still no King Cake in the Young household. Well… I haven’t made a King Cake, but I have eaten 3 slices from 3 different King Cakes so far. And, no, I did not get the baby. We are talking about why we love to read about food today as I share with you a wonderful article by Christie Purifoy at GraceTable. Listener feedback, married couples who are chefs and restaurant owners, Nero Wolfe, and more on The Catholic Foodie Show… where food meets faith!

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.

Story

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.
