This past year has been so much fun! I have met so many wonderful people, had opportunities to do book signings in really fun and sometimes once in a lifetime places (2010 World Equestrian Games.) I am sure God created all these events and opportunities for both the cookbooks and for me. For this, I am truly thankful!

The Kentucky Cookbook “Favorite Recipes of Kentucky Celebrities” was released just 2 years ago and has been used by over 100 organizations as a fundraiser. The Tennessee Cookbook, “Country Goodness Recipes of Tennessee Celebrities" was released by the publisher just 2 months ago and there are over 20 organizations already selling the cookbook as a fundraiser.

One of the organizations is the Knoxville Museum of Art, which was also a contributor. The Tennessee cookbook is being sold in their gift shop. They sent a recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle.

The Knoxville Museum of Art, located on the site of the 1982 World’s Fair, includes five galleries, as well as a Sculpture Terrace, & 2 large outdoor garden areas. The Museum collection consists of work primarily from the 20th & 21st century. Kitsy Hartley, one of their longtime docents & volunteers makes the peanut brittle & brings to staff functions as well as volunteer activities.

Now to all the wonderful people who have contributed recipes, purchased a cookbook to help with numerous fundraisers, and those who just happen to stop by to read this blog, I hope you had a very blessed Christmas and wishing you a very Happy New Year. Thank you for all your help and God’s blessings.
