A New Cookbook

I received a special package in the mail today!

Do you recognize the house on the tag? Of course! It's Joni's house. She lives in the Old Centennial Farmhouse!

I won this sweet Amish cookbook in her giveaway.
I've never won a giveaway before.

There was a handwritten note on the back of the tag.

I really like this tag. I am using it as a special collar for this little dog in the kitchen.

There are all sorts of interesting recipes and ideas in the cookbook.

And a blessing or words of wisdom to start off each chapter!
I've already started poring over the book. Looking forward to more hours of enjoyment. Thanks, Joni!

Reading a cookbook is a simple pleasure that I am delighted to share for Simple Pleasures Thursday on Dayle's blog. Make sure to check out this fun party!

Oh, that is so sweet, Carol! I didn't know it was your first drawing to win...making it all the more fun for me! I hope you find some useful and new recipes in that book, it's always interesting to read from the Amish point of view.

I am going to do some more browsing on your blog, I just found the category about restoring your old house, and I can't wait to read it!

Cookbooks are always a Simple Pleasure for them and have a very large collection of them. And I even still like to cook! Susan

First, congratulations on the cookbook win. I just love to win stuff. That specific win was a great one, too. I can tell that it's full of all sorts of wonderful things.

Now, I need to venture to that blog because I'm unfamiliar with it.

Carol, what a wonderful surprise to win this lovely gift. I agree. Cookbooks are yummy simple pleasures. I could spend all day looking through them. Good luck with yours, and share a few of those recipes if you get a chance. ;)

OT but... Thank you for your most interesting comment on my Dec. 7th post. Your father in law was at PEARL HARBOR! And went on to fight in WWII and gave much, for our Freedom.

My thanks to him!
