AdeleCookbookPhotoConcept_BackgroundDesign2John 6:27  Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.

There are 300 recipes in this cookbook.  All of these recipes have been tested by me personally.  This is an expansion of the first cookbook:  Family Favorites. Family Favorites II, Second Helpings is now available.  The recipe collection has a southern influence recipes that require no fancy equipment or exotic ingredients.  One person who recently purchased the book said she enjoyed it because she usually had most of the ingredients already in his fridge or pantry. The cost is $15.00 plus shipping. Part of the proceeds (about 1/2) will be donated to a free meal program that is hosted by my church:  Manna Meals: this is a meal that is offered every week on Saturday to anyone who enters our doors.  Get your copy now.  They would make a great Mother’s Day present.  Contact me via this site or visit our Facebook Page:   Family Favorites II:  Second Helpings.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.  Psalm 139:  13-14

Sorry I have not posted in a long time, but I have had some serious health issues for a year.  I am back and hope to share more recipes, hints/tips, etc. on this blog.  I was able to get the second cookbook finished while I was not feeling so well.  It has a lot of the recipes from the first cookbook with about 120 new recipes added.  The book contains 300 recipes.  I have personally prepared each of these recipes.  We have a Facebook page at:  Family Favorites II:  Second Helpings.

The books are $15.00 and with shipping they are $18.00.  If you order more than one I can calculate the shipping.  The profits from the book are donated to a local free meal program. I also have set up Paypal, so you can pay online, mail a check or money order.  If you mail payment the book will not be shipped until I receive payment.

Some of favorite recipes in the book are:  Baked French Toast, Cream Cheese Danish, Herbal Cheesecake,  Cottage Cheese Salad,  Carrot Dressing Casserole, Bean Enchilada Bake, Amish Friendship Bread, Candy Bar Cheesecake, Quick Peanut Butter Fudge and White BBQ Sauce.

These would make unique Christmas Presents.  I will sign the books as a free bonus.

Acts 20:32  I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I have been on a journey to complete my second Cookbook.  I wrote the first one when our children left home and then kept calling back asking how to make _______.  I decided that the best way to get everything together was to print a Cookbook.   To my delight and surprise people wanted to buy some of the books.  After I sold out people were still asking for cookbooks. 

I am constantly searching for new recipes and asking people to share their favorites with me.  I starting compiling recipes for another cookbook almost three years ago.  It is finally done, has been printed and has arrived.  This new book has a lot of the favorites from the first book, but it also has almost 125 NEW recipes.  This book has 300 recipes that have all been personally prepared by ME. 

My wonderful daughter has developed an ecommerce site and has set up a PayPal Account if you would like to purchase one.  There is a tab at the top of this page called:  Adele’s Cookbook.  The cost is $15.00 plus $3.25 for shipping/handling.  If you want multiple copies you can message or email me for the shipping costs.  They are also available for wholesale rates.

After I recover the costs for the printing at least 1/2 (if not all) of the profits will be donated to charity.  I hope some of these recipes that have become our Family Favorites might become some of your family’s favorites also.  Believe me, most of them you will want to have Second Helpings.

Psalm 119: 32  I run in the path of your commands, O Lord, for you have set my heart free.

I have finished editing my newest cookbook.  I will be selecting the cover, design, etc.  The only problem is that I don’t have a NAME for this new book.  It will contain 250 recipes that I have prepared for my family on Sunday dinners, church pot lucks and regular dinners.  The first book was “Family Favorites”, which is currently sold out.  This book has many of the recipes from Family Favorites, but many new recipes as well.  Let me know your creative titles.  If I choose your Title you will WIN a FREE cookbook when it is published.  Looking for some creative ideas.  Get Ready – Set – Go – Get Creative.

So sorry I have neglected this blog.  I am truly amazed at the number of people who continue to find the blog through searching for recipes, etc.  Thank you for visiting.  I have been working on Cookbook #2 and I am within about 20 recipes of finishing.  The new cookbook will have 250 recipes.  Some are from the first book, but many are new ones that I have developed over the past few years.

At least half of the profits from the book will benefit our church building fund.  The first book is sold out.  I was amazed at the interest in the first book, so I am hoping that the response will be just as good for this second one.  These recipes are the ones that my children grew up with and additional ones that we use for Sunday dinners for the grandchildren, church potlucks, etc.  They are not anything fancy, but they are good nutritious recipes (except for the desserts of course) that we enjoy.

If you are interested give me a post and I will contact when it is available.  To allow for printing we are anticipating 2-3 months from now.
