He d cherubim, palm trees
and open flowers on them
and overlaid them with
gold hammered evenly over the carvings.
1 Kings 6:35 NIV
He carved juicy apples into petals with the skins still on the edges
and overlaid them with apricot jelly and
pressed pie crust evenly over the petals.
Bill found another wonderful recipe and outdid himself with his Valentine surprise for me. I countered with walnut and chocolate chunk brownies but he won the contest!
