This is truly my favorite time of the year and this is my favorite series on the KISS in the Kitchen blog. I started the Fruits of the Spirit series last year when I was self-admittedly having a particularly difficult holiday season and made an intentional effort to live in abundance, focus on the good stuff and count my blessings. Because let’s be honest- even in the most challenging of seasons, there are still things to be grateful for. I’m incredibly grateful to be in a much different season this December, but I still want to maintain the series and even more importantly- an attitude of gratitude!
So what is the good stuff? I’m focusing on the Fruits of the Spirit. LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS AND SELF-CONTROL.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” -Galatians 5:22-23
First up on our list is love and joy! I’ll take a double helping of both, please ;). Below you will find recipes that embody love and the heart; either adorable heart-shaped cutouts OR recipes that are good for your (and your family’s) ticker! Scroll down a bit further for the joy recipes!
“Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.” -Luke 2:10
When thinking of joy, I think of brightness, cheer and beautiful colors. These recipes are some of the prettiest recipes from my dietitian colleagues that are sure to bring some joy to your kitchen and to the people eating them!
