The month of May suddenly got very busy and it's been a while since I've visited any blogs or even my own!
Now to catch up a bit. A while ago, I talked about being a blogger groupie and I was pleased to met a couple of cookbook authors.
Well, it happened again. Not a blogger but a cookbook author.
Recently I went to "Ladies Night Out" in my hometown. I saw lots of people that I haven't seen in a long time (except on Facebook) but only had an hour to shop and enjoy this event.
I met the author of Tasty Creations, Margaret F. Gamble. She was very pleasant to talk to and told me how her cookbook came to be. Her mother prepared dishes for events at the historic Larimore House in Florence, AL. She wanted to preserve her mom's history of cooking and recipes that she herself had developed over the years for her family. As I flipped through the book, I saw several recipes that I recognized and some that I didn't. I decided to get the book because she was a local author and the recipes looked good.
Now the funny thing is we had the same color hair, top, and pants!
Then for Mother's Day, I received Emeril's Sizzling Skillets and Other One Pot Wonders but I didn't get to meet Emeril. At least not yet!
And if this continues, I will be as big as the side of a barn!
