THANK YOU MORRIS PRESS COOKBOOK COMPANY!!

I can't sing the praises of Morris Press Cookbook Company LOUD enough! They have been awesome to work with every step of the way. May God bless those dear folks for all the ways they've encouraged and helped me. I've told them if I lived in NE, I'd have to work with them.  It's unreal to me that in this long process, I'm not aware of one 'mess up' by them. WOW!  If you would like info about how to purchase one of my new release, click on the button for "Recipes & Recollections" just below my blog button, at my main page, and it will take you to a page with info.  They arrived this past Monday and it's been a very BUZZy week but oh such fun!

CALICO BEANS - MMM!

Pssst - did you see my new button on the right hand side???  Feel free to grab it if you like my posts and share it with your readers!  Traci, from Graphic Designs by Traci, designed it for me.  She was so sweet to work with and really gave me exactly what I wanted!
   
I had tasted these beans before, but made them myself for the first time for the 4th.  Hope you'll give them a try too.  It's a colorful and easy dish to share for a reunion or get together.
