When I was growing up my single mother got some "inexpensive healthy meals" recipes from the US government. I'm pretty sure this Meatloaf Burgers recipe was one of them.
It's important to understand where meatloaf came from. The eggs and crackers help stretch the ground beef, which was crucial in rough times. Though beef isn't such a luxury these days, we still benefit from cutting the amount of red meat in our diet.
But I love these meatloaf burgers because of the taste: It's like eating a hamburger with all the onions and Worcestershire sauce built in, making them very flavorful. I only top them with some mustard. [ read more ... ]
Why am I named Sunny? Do I like my name?

As a 45-year-old woman with the name Sunny on my birth certificate … Sunny is an excellent name for a girl. [ read more ... ]

Recently I posted online:
"I'll share these gospels of John in my community but most of my ministry is as an apologist on the web. My background is in astrophysics and there is no conflict between my faith and my field. It is not illogical, unscientific, or silly to explore a relationship with the creator of this beautiful universe (Ps 19:1-4, Rom 1:20)." [ read more ... ]
A "Proof by Picture" of the Angle Addition Formulas
Original proof by Sunny Snaith.
All you need to know in order to follow the proof is:
1. The basic trig identities:
- The center angle of the triangle is Θ.
- The hypotenuse is 1.
- The side adjacent is cos Θ.
- The side opposite is sin Θ. [...]

I make a taco meat pasta salad dish I affectionately call Mexican Mess or Micro Taco. I have no idea where the recipe came from.
The taco pasta is sort of like a Mexican-spiced Spaghetti with Meat Sauce but once you add all the toppings, the similarity fades.
Stretching meat with pasta (or beans or tofu) has long been a strategy for poor folk (myself included) but it is also healthy by cutting our red meat consumption. [ read more ... ]
Fox News Special Report had a bit on the recent surge in popularity of coloring among adults. They called for tweets of adult's recent coloring exploits.This was my entry from the book Designs for Coloring: Birds by Ruth Heller.
My mom is a huge genealogy buff and has researched several branches of our family tree back to the 1500's and beyond.
It turns out that three of William Shakespeare's grandparents are in my family tree!
That section of the tree is so tangled that it gets really hard to wrap your mind around — instead of branching out, it is grafted back onto itself a few times. [ read more ... ]
How did I become a Bible Christian*? What factors in my life guided me?
Well, to begin with, I was blessed with a strong Christian mother …So often when little kids ask, "Why do I have to?" you hear their moms reply: "Because I said so!" — but not my mom. She really took my questions seriously and treated me with respect. [ read more ... ]
Another thing (see previous post) that bugs me is when so-called scientists fail to use error-bar language when they talk to the media. They speak with such certainty that the public automatically accepts their conclusions without considering the limits of the research.
Over-certainty may lead the public to believe that the science is settled, that the scientific community is in agreement (consensus) on the topic. Often this is NOT the situation. [ read more ... ]

[or, How can we explain Socialism to Millennials?]
Socialism sounds like a great idea — Free stuff, right and left. Just think how cushy it would be to have someone else pay for everything: food, shelter, clothing, medical.
The problem is that these perks ALWAYS come with strings. [ read more ... ]

The Russian First Officer says: "I will live in Montana. And I will marry a round American woman and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a pickup truck... maybe even a 'recreational vehicle.' And drive from state to state. Do they let you do that?"

Who has time to cook?
Why pay big bucks for a frozen pie that you have to heat up in the oven all at one time?
This is an incredibly lazy, incredibly tasty pie recipe that literally anyone can make.

I'm going though an online Evangelism Boot Camp from The Pocket Testament League.
In the first lesson they suggest you describe what your life was like before you found Christ and how it has changed since. This was a little difficult for me because I don't have a specific conversion event: I was raised Christian and have grown in my faith over time. [ read more ... ]
The Supreme Court of the United States released its decision on the topic of gay marriage on Friday. The majority view supported gay marriage as a constitutional right, thereby nullifying any state laws addressing the issue. The minority views included the opinion that this was fundamentally and constitutionally a states' rights issue and the prediction that this decision would inevitably be used to restrict religious liberty.

During my senior year at Agnes Scott College, the Career Center hosted a Halloween Career Costume Party. The idea was to create a costume depicting yourself in your ideal career, with some humor and/or horror thrown in.
As an astrophysics and math major, I was tempted to dress as a mad professor with a lab coat, an Einstein-esque hairdo, and some soot from an apparent explosion. [ read more ... ]
You are not an accident of nature, a purposeless animal on an insignificant planet orbiting a backwater star in an utterly average galaxy.
