John and I live in the little country town of Springville located in the Endless Mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania. We thank God for bringing us to this beautiful area where we raised our 2 daughters and are now enjoying watching our grandchildren grow here as well.
Thank you for taking the time to stop in and visit with us.
It is our prayer that as you spend time with us you may begin to reflect over memories that you thought were long forgotten. Or maybe, you will begin to build new ones! No matter what, we pray that you will leave here with a smile on your face and the desire to share your joy with others.
May we leave you with this: "For God so loved the world (that means you) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth (placed your faith and trust) in Him (Jesus) should not perish but have everlasting life (with Him in heaven). ~ John 3:16
You are loved!!! ~ John & Lucy Galgano
Each year for the past 32 years, I have had Christmas Eve dinner at my house. I love, love, love it!!! I enjoy planning the menu, shopping for the ingredients and spending the week preparing, cooking and baking! It's a lot of work but worth every minute of it.
Here's what's on the menu this year:
Ranch and Pecan Cheese Ball
Pesto and Cheddar Cheese Ball
Onion and Mustard Cheese Ball
Ham Tortilla Pinwheels
Sausage Wonton Stars
Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip
This isn't even close to what I used to serve. I've had to pair things down over the years since our family is scattered a little bit and we don't have as many at our table anymore. I used to also have on the menu two different soups, chicken, fish and dozens upon dozens of cookies!
If you would like to try one of my recipes, leave me a comment with your email address and I will send that to you!
From our house to yours - Merry Christmas!!! May the Lord bless you and your family this year and always!!!
