Tom's Tamale Pie

Diane Schmidt


This recipe was given to me by Tom Visser, my pastor, my friend, my mentor, my brother in Christ. If I had to pick one verse out of the bible to describe Tom, I'd pick the following verses out of Deuteronomy.

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up." Deuteronomy 6:5-7
