Happy Friday!

Just wanted to do a little bit of shameless self-promotion.  I just finished an article on church cookbooks for Faith & Leadership, and if you would like to check it out you can head over to their website. It’s not often that I can go on and on about how awesome recipes are outside of this blog, so I was really thrilled to write the article and flattered that they even asked me!

One bonus of writing the article was digging through my church cookbooks for example recipes.  I drew heavily from one of my favorite books, From Ridgewood Kitchens, which was published in 1945 by the West Side Presbyterian Church in Ridgewood, New Jersey.  I LOVE this book because not only are all the recipes handwritten, but most of them are illustrated as well. The work of these talented ladies is really something!
