For All You Cookers Out There

Today two little cook books are up for grabs.

One is 111 pages and is in kind of a magazine form.  It's "Selected Health Recipes from The Saturday Evening Post Family Cookbook."  (How's that for a mouth full?)  A blurb on the bottom of the cover says:

"Delicious new high-fiber diet recipes.
How to prepare tasty meals
with less salt, and retain maximum
vitamins while cooking for better health."

There's one written notation I made by one of the recipes inside the book, but otherwise it's in great shape.

The other book, as part of this twosome offering, is "Cooking with Soup."  It contains 608 recipes, each having a can of Campbell's soup as one of the ingredients.  

For instance, the recipe for Spaghetti Southern Style has a can of tomato soup in it.  The Bacon 'N Bean Dip has a can of bean with bacon soup in the list of ingredients.   Creamed Chicken has a can of cream of chicken soup as in ingredient.  (Well, that makes sense, huh?)  It's an attractively done little book with nice illustrations.

If you're looking for some new recipes to jazz up your winter menus, it might be fun to look through these two books.  Anybody interested in receiving them?

Just be the first to comment to that effect and I'll send them to you. 

Addendum:  The two cook books have been spoken for!  Thanks!

I love the title of this post. My youngest often says to me, "You're the best cooker." Pretty cute if I do say so myself:-). Also, I love your header picture!

Mama Pea said...

I'll Call You Jane - Thank you! That expression came from my mom who often referred to herself as "the cooker around here."

We found that piece of log when we were splitting up our firewood a couple of years ago. Now I wish I'd kept it and done "something" (what I don't know) with it.

Just for clarification: Does this comment mean you'd like to receive the two offered books? Please let me know, okay?

While the cookbook-lover in me says, "Yes!", the cooker who just cleaned out her cookbook shelf will have to pass. Thanks for double-checking, though:-).

Mama Pea said...

I'll Call You Jane - Totally understandable! Thanks much for getting back to me. :o}

Hi Mama Pea! Always enjoy Saturday Evening Post's illustrations as they remind me of days-gone-by. Both books look lovely, but I will pass today. Just checking in to say 'hello'.

I'd love the cookbooks! And I really like your blog (and your daughter's blog).

Mama Pea said...

Lisa - Yes, those illustrations just can't be beat for depicting days gone by.

Hello right back at you, dear lady!

Mama Pea said...

Sweetiesuzy - They are yours! I'll send you an email and you can send me (in return reply) your mailing address. Thanks for your interest!

Miss it. But Congrats to the winner.

So sweet of you to offer up these books - if I don't comment on these posts it's because I already have TOO MANY LOL! I know all books will find good homes :)

Mama Pea said...

Michelle - More to come, stay tuned! :o)

Mama Pea said...

Erin - Thanks! I can feel you lurking (hee-hee) even if you don't comment!
