Day 21 - September 4, 2009


Earlier this week, I received The Good Home Cookbook I had won through an online giveaway (Thanks, S. Somers!). I had been anxiously waiting for 2 weeks, checking the mail daily, actually, I’ll be honest, many days I checked 2 or 3 times just in case the mailman was late or they had forgotten to deliver it with the daily flyers and coupons. I was thrilled on Wednesday when I saw the little pink slip in our mailbox telling me there was a package to be picked up at the front desk.

Drum roll please…TA-DA!!

Isn’t she a beauty?! I have never been this excited about a cookbook that doesn’t have crisp, glossy, coloured photos of each recipe. The book is filled with more than 1,000 classic American recipes from comfort foods like Chicken Noodle Soup to sweet treats like Berry Cobbler and Cinnamon-Apple Streusel Muffins. I have already flipped through, page-by-page, many times and stuck Post-it notes on recipes I can’t wait to try. Stay tuned for my many attempts to master this cookbook.

Glad to see it arrived safely! I have a copy too - drop me a note sometime and let me know your favorite recipe... (or judging by all those post-its - favorite recipes?!) Enjoy!
