A Great Mention in the Gloucester Daily Times

Heather Atwood, the cooking columnist for The Gloucester Daily Times, has a terrific column today on Cookbooks, Alive and Well. She mentions my cookbook, Fry Bacon. Add Onions and says: 

Kathleen Valentine has written a cookbook and memoir titled, "Fry Bacon. Add Onions." The Valentine Family & Friends Cookbook, says of cookbooks, "I use them, I wrote one, and I love reading them in bed or out." The book on her nightstand right now is "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker," by Beth Hensperger. The Amazon review lists "more than a dozen oatmeals and porridges, ranging from Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal to Cream Cornmeal Porridge...Twenty-four types of baked beans are mere prelude for the 14 chili options..." "If you want to be really sinful," Kathleen adds, "get 'Seduced By Bacon: Recipes & Lore about America's Favorite Indulgence,' by Joanna Pruess, and try their Caramel Bacon Ice Cream."

For those of us who love cookbooks there are lots of good suggestions in her column. Give it a read at: Heather Atwood's "Food for Thought".

Which brings up a thought, why don't newspapers have sewing/knitting/crocheting columnists?

Thanks for reading.
