Valerie's Entry

All About Home Baking - Photo from

Valerie almost didn't enter the giveaway because of a major cleaning, re-arranging in her kitchen. Not sure what boxes her cookbooks were in she felt unable to get a photo to enter. Since we are not that fussy around the Little House, we are not going to let that stop us ...We found a photo on and Valerie sent a nice email about some of her cookbooks.

Valerie's email - I have a favorite one lately that I have been going back to as I have been enjoying old recipes. This one has more baking type goods in it. A 1939 cookbook called "All About Home Baking". This is my oldest one. I also have Paula Dean, Good Housekeeping, chocolate lovers cookbooks, books on home preserves, desserts, main dishes, crock pot cooking, wedding cakes (although have never and never will make one but like the looks of the book), fancy and simple, diabetic (I'm a diabetic), church and school cookbooks, I love cookbooks.

If I could pick any cookbook, I would have to say The Pioneer Woman Cooks by Ree Drummond. I look at her blog often and pick recipes from it now and then.
Thanks Valerie for your entry and good luck with your kitchen project.
Don't forget your entry needs to be in by Aug.12th. Details here.

I am curious what Valerie's favorite book on preserves is.

Way to go on the cleaning and rearranging... oh, to be so inspired:)

Sherri,you found a picture of one of my cookbooks! Thank you so much, and of course for giving me a chance in your fantastic give a way!

Heather, first good luck on the give a way! The book I go back to the most is a Ball book on preserving. I think it is called The Complete Book On Home Preserving. It is in a box stacked under other boxes right now. I'm almost positive that's the name though.
