Below is something I posted on my blog on July 9th!
I DO have some exciting news...I think...about an upcoming publication!
I'll post more about it when I know more info!
Well, I've known for quite some time now that my story and recipe will be included in a very unique cookbook, but was asked to refrain from saying anything until...now.
Matilda Butler & Kendra Bonnett
If you're not familiar with Matilda & Kendra of Women's Memoirs, you can click on the link above.They offer help for memoir writers, have contests & have published other books.They are wonderful!
Matilda also posted an interview with me on their website on February 26, 2014.
Their first cookbook, Rosie's Riveting Recipe:
Comfort Foods & Kitchen Wisdom from 1940's America (Vintage Living)
was published in December 2013.
I wasn't aware of that one (probably because I was feverishly finishing
my memoir which came out in November 2013!)
I discovered their call out for submissions when I happened upon their facebook page:
And this is directly from their website: "Why are we contacting you? We need your help! We researched the recipes Rosie likely made. We even created a Rosie the Riveter Legacy Cookbook based on some of our well-loved family recipes as well as some found in a WW2 Department of the Army cookbook. We are now expanding our cookbook and are looking for recipes Rosie might have prepared."
I love the idea of not only submitting the recipe, but also the story behind it. Needless to say, I am thrilled that mine was chosen to be included!
It is due out in 6 weeks, so in plenty of time for a unique and thoughtful
I'll share more news when it comes available!
