My Blog Anniversary Winner!!

I have been overwhelmed with the response and words of kindness on my blog anniversary.  You will never know how I wish I could give each and every one of you this cookbook.  It is a beautiful book of the many lives that were driven out of Europe because of religious persecution, only to finally find "home" in Iowa.  I know all of you would enjoy reading it as well as trying some of the outstanding recipes.

So many of you are bloggers from when I started and found you and you found me.  Several of us even email each other when there are blogging problems, so I feel I have gotten to know so many of you.

Then there are the newer bloggers that have found me.  Every blog is different because every personality shines through so beautifully.  Of course, there are some old friends, a former high school teacher,  a friend of my daughter who has spent time in our home, bloggers from England, France and yes, a new friend from Sweden.  I am so pleased she commented.

That being said, I chose a winner by putting all your names into a hat, the old-fashioned way, and I had the Trout "fish" one out.  I thought that was quite appropriate.

I am so pleased to announce that the recipient of Seasons of Plenty is  KATHLEEN from

Cuisine Kathleen.  Kathleen send me your physical address and I will put this in the mail today.

Some of you have asked if this book is available elsewhere.  Check Amazon here to pick up your own copy.

  6. Congratulations, Susan, to your winner and to you for your 500th post anniversary! How did I miss this? Likely, had my head was stuck in some raised bed harvesting vegetables. ;)

    Hope you and the Trout are still enjoying your time in Montana. I see you were in Washington... only 5 hours away. :)
