It’s Giveaway Time!

I love a good cookbook, and a good cookbook to me is a hometown church cookbook.  It doesn’t matter whose hometown it is… Who can resist the comfort food that so many real ladies are willing to share?  Real ingredients; real food.  I love it, and well… I have too many good cookbooks. 

In a continued effort to reduce my kitchen clutter, I’m participating in the fall Bloggy Giveaways by re-gifting one of my cookbooks from its crowded cabinet spot.  Need a good cookbook?  It could be yours!  Just leave a comment.  If you want to be entered twice, mention my giveaway on your blog (and be sure to tell me you did!) 

This particular book was compiled by the Methodist Church ladies of Nickerson, Kansas.  With recipe titles such as Rendezvous Coffee Cake, Fumi Salad, Shipwreck, and Ugly Duckling Cake, there’s certain to be something for everyone!


I’ll let pick a winner on Friday after we return from our Trick-or-Treating rounds.  Be sure to check out the hundreds of awesome Bloggy Giveaways going on this week!
