Yes! Very special. Kind of like in ancient time, gathering around the well or a fire for chin wags.

How Pat views us and our church cookbooks: 

Comment by sk8eycat on August 13, 2014 at 11:03pm

Collecting recipes and publishing cookbooks has always been a great fund-raiser for non-profit orgs.  I have one from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, and one from a local org called Family Services (mostly low-cost counseling for all sorts of problems.)

The Family Services book has a very easy vegetable stew recipe from the late Paul Lynde (that's how long ago the book was published.)

Carl and Randall, I sort of look upon our little group here as something quite similar to the church ladies, rural electric co-op magazine, farm bureau flyer, and gas company local newsletter of recipes, advice, and helpful hints. Tips, shortcuts, better methods, and unique ways of preparing local produce and storing favorite foods for the colder months. We're carrying on a tradition that goes back before Thomas Jefferson told George III to blow it out his.........

Glad to a member.

I have two or three church cookbooks as well.  They have some really fine recipes in them. 

Sometimes good recipes come from the most unexpected places.  Years ago I received a small booklet from the gas company with recipes promoting stove and gas grill use.  It has an easy and delicious recipe for crab cakes that I've made countless times.

Yes, I have a couple of "church ladies" cookbooks. One is filled with quiche recipes, back when that was a popular dish. Funny. Two other favorites are "Amish" books. Now those women could cook.

Randall and Carl, I've gone through old books compiled by church ladies for casseroles and desserts. In the words of Tony the Tiger, THEY'RE GREAT!

What I'm doing now is getting on YouTube and looking at ethnic cooking (in the native language). Amazing what you can learn from a video of an abuela (grandmother) standing over a stove and kitchen counter with someone near her with a video camera.

Randy, I still use recipes that I cut out of the Chicago Tribune back in the early 1990's.  Two of them I've totally adapted and made into my own over the years.  An Asian pork with hoisin sauce and also a pounded chicken breast sauteed in lemon/orange juice and garlic.   

Comment by Randall Smith on August 11, 2014 at 7:09am

I have several cookbooks I use, favoring some over others. But I also use recipes I've cut out of newspapers or magazines over the years. I went through my box and pulled out about a dozen "ideas", all vegetable related. Cabbage, brocolli, green beans, kale, etc.--steam, casseroles, mix and match. I'm overwhelmed. Summer is a good time to turn vegetarian.

Kudos, high five, commendation and applause to Daniel for posting the video on how to cut a watermelon. Just came back from the market with a medium sized watermelon that I cut into pieces and eat as part of my daily breakfast.

IT WORKS!!!!  Fastest method I've ever used.
