I’ve had enough of the broken and fractured heart talk. Let’s get back to our regularly scheduled program.

Anyone who knows me knows I am absolutely obsessed with cupcakes. Truth be told, I probably shouldn’t be a journalist I should be a baker with her own cupcake shop. Who knows, that could be my second career? Until then, I’ll continue to eat copious amounts of cupcakes and continue appreciating artfully designed cupcakes. To that end, I wanted to share a magically delicious site that I came across earlier this week. I don’t have to wax poetic about the content of the site, I can show you better than I can tell you. So, here goes:

Disclaimer: I do not endorse the name of the blog, though I sure DO think it’s funny. I DO, however, endorse the pictures of wonderful food stuffs featured therein. Enjoy my pretties. 🙂

Bloglight: Then Comes Wife

Filed under: Bloglight,relationships — nickisym @ 12:00 pm

This is the inaugural post of what I hope will be a recurring section here at Loudmouth Protestant. The “Bloglight” will spotlight cool blogs that I am come across. It’s not enough for me to add a blog to my blogroll, no, I’d rather tell you why I think it’s interesting and hope you will find it interesting enough to check out for yourself. Besides, I believe the spotlight always gets shined on blogs that lack true creativity and great content, and I want to be the one to lead the people to the promised land of great, substantive blogs. Here is the first bloglight:

A friend of mine introduced me to Then Comes Wife  about a week ago and I’ve been hooked ever since. The blogger, Melanie Burge, a newlywed living in Manhattan, has dedicated her blogging space to her journey as a Christian wife. Her writing style is educational for the woman who is on her way to the altar (Check out her Q&A section), inspirational for the one who is waiting for the man to find her so she can go to the altar (look out for tips from Burge’s upcoming book, “God Where Is My Husband?”) and aspirational for the women who has already been to the altar and is creating a home for her and her husband (check out her recipe section, “What’s Cooking?”).

My favorite section of this blog, the section that got me hooked in the first place, is “What’s Cooking?” which offers step-by-step recipes for some of the delicious meals she prepares for her husband. The recipes are great–well they look great, but the pictures look even better. The one below captured my heart and made me promise to fix it for my family at this year’s Christmas dinner.

No Wack Mac & Cheese from Then Comes Wife

I’ll let you know how the mac and cheese turns out, but in the meantime, since there are quite a few days until Christmas, go over and support Then Comes Wife.
