  3. Lovely photography to match the verse.
    What a glorious fig. Have not had one in years. Used to be one over the road on the other farm when I was growing up.

  6. Okay..I had to giggle because I was craving fig newtons lately and I tell you..it's from coming to this site...

    I know my husband is going to ask me if I dropped by here today if he sees me snacking on fig newtons...he always knows something is up when I'm trying or making something sweet and your site is the first thing that comes to mind (how's that for free and great PR? LOL).

    God bless you sweetie for your innovative and SWEET postings that you share on your blog each time.

    You keep this one lady busy in the kitchen making something sweet!

    Busy, crazy day!!

    I love figs so this reminds me that I need to find SOMETHING to use them in...any good ideas????

    My gram used to make cookies with figs in them...
    hmmmmm....

    I'm not sure how my "people" will react to figs...they'd prefer chocolate chips:) LOL...

    Great verse.....

  16. Melanie: This is a purple fig. There are also green figs.

    Lori: Figs are great in cookies and bars as they make them very moist. I love fig tarts (you could add chocolate!) and even just fresh. Just quarter the figs and have a variety of dips: mascarpone, honey, chocolate, caramel, yogurt, whipped cream, etc. They go great with all sorts of cheeses and nuts too.
