A new cookbook

Last week was a week of festivity. My co-workers feted me throughout the week in honor of my retirement and my birthday. I have a number of posts planned in the near future showing some of these events, but am unable to access my pictures at the moment. My friend, Kathy, gave me the Jan Karon Mitford Cookbook & Kitchen Reader for my birthday. If you have read any of the Jan Karon novels you might enjoy at least looking through this book.

It is a delightful book and I have enjoyed reading through it so far. I love cookbooks that have a lot of stories about the recipes. This is one of the best. The recipes are arranged in the cookbook according to the books they appeared in. The author includes the passage from the novel which describes the recipe and then the recipe itself. She also has included pictures and stories about her family.

I'm looking forward to spending more time reading this book and trying out some of the recipes. It should give me plenty to do in the weeks ahead before starting my new job as granny nanny.

    Hi Becka ~ I’m late checking in this week, but I wanted to say Congratulations on your retirement and a belated happy birthday! I know you’ll enjoy the extra time being a granny and also working on projects. My birthday was the 2nd, and my family pampered me a lot! Hope you received the same!

    I’m planning to take a look at this cookbook. Might make a great gift for my Mom, and of course, she would let me read it, too…
