    Another great entry Bonnie which you have always done a good job of writing your blogs. I don't comment on all of them but do read everyone's blog and comments. I like the way you write and put the entry as a part of life, you make it so easy to understand and keep it simple. Keep up the good work, I for one enjoy reading them. Speaking of cook books, when my Mom died I gathered up all the books she had and have them here now. They were all put together by different Lady groups and printed, and then they sold them to raise money for different functions. They all have alot of info about pan/dish sizes, what to sub if you don't have an ingrendent or what different measurements are equal. When I started putting together my own cookbook, I used to have a software program on the computer and loaded alot of recipes then printed them and put them in a 3 ring binders with different tabs to seperate desserts, meals, etc and also made one for each of my daughters. Someday I need to get back to the book and file all the recipes I have laying all over my office LOL.

  • Bonnie that dirt cake recipe sounds yummy. I have a friend that makes a cracker cake that is so easy and not expensive to make and let me tell you it is absolutely delicious! It's surprising that some of the simple things to make are the best to eat...

    I have lots of cook books and I have recipes that were my Grandmothers. I have cook books from the church my Mom belonged to and my very first cook book I bought was a Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book and I still have that. It has been well used..

    I make my Grandmothers Macaroni, Tomato's and cheese recipe often and it is so delicious and hard to forget her blueberry cheese cake yummy

    I like your picture, are those your Grand Kids sitting around the table? They are so cute and I love how they are being kids and making faces
