  10. Looks good. I won't add coconut because I don't like coconut.

  11. I am curious to know if Brandon Keilen is still employed by IBLP. It is my understanding that their "headquarters" were moved from Chicago to Texas. The Bates have a strong connection with this organization as Gil is on the IBLP board, as is Erin's father-in-law.

    1. I asked this same question on this blog a couple of months ago, and never got an answer. I wonder if they'd move to Texas. David and Priscilla Waller did (Anna Duggar's sister).

    2. Anon 9/07/2017. Brandon never worked for IBLP. Brandon is a videographer for some place in Chicago I don't know the name of it.

    3. 10:05 According to the UpTV website, Brandon worked as a videographer for IBLP ministries in Chicago. It's not clear if he still does.

  14. Let's all pray & hope for the best regarding Alyssa & the Webster families in Florida - I do not know where in FL they live, but it appears the entire state will suffer from IRMA.
    My son lives in Sarasota and believe me EVERY prayer is appreciated for everyone affected by this storm.
    BE SAFE

  16. I made this recipe this morning, the house smells so good and it's delicious. I like how it isn't too sweet. I did have to cook it a bit longer though, about 30 minutes total.
