Accidents Happen – Swallowing My Pride

   Posted by: anj68 Tags:

My dearest reader,

I have some bad news to share with you.
With the recent storms, we were late to discover flooding in my basement. All of my professional quality soft and hard cover cookbooks were destroyed as well as half of my self-produced cookbooks.
My family does not have the funds to produce the cookbooks in time for the show, so this is a last ditch effort to raise some funds to get them printed in time for the show. Please donate if you can, or share the information to others.

I am very disappointed in this. Without your help, we will have only the cookbooks that survived to sell. My sincerest apologies, I’ve swallowed my pride and this is a last resort.

I am so honored.  My fans voted Alice the Cook and her assistants took 2nd place in the Best Non-Musical Group, Non-Comedy Performance from Renaissance Festival Music Podcast Awards.  I am so honored to be part of Renaissance Magazine, the Minnesota Renaissance Festival and the Siouxland Renaissance Festival.

Gramercy all!



First Promotional Video

After years of being asked what I do, I created a video from the photographs supplied by my fans.  They are each recognized for their kindness at the end of the video and I received written permission from the band, Misplaced, to use “Tell My Ma” for this video.  Please be kind with the comments, I am a cook and not a videographer. 

Thank you all for your continued support.  I look forward to seeing many of you in 2013.


A new cookbook & an older one

   Posted by: anj68 Tags: ,

Well my fans, I’ve been rather busy working on a new cookbook.  I learned a lot from the last one and I wanted to improve what I had, offer friendlier prices, and provide quality cookbooks that I could be proud of producing. 

To view both cookbooks, click HERE.

As you can see, the cookbooks are offered in a soft-cover, hard-cover and an e-book format.  They are both being reviewed by iTunes and I should know in the next month or so if they will be accepted. 

If you like what I do, please consider purchasing a cookbook or two as it helps fund my research, my writing, and it validates what I do.  :)

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me or ask me questions.  I love to hear from my fans.

On my facebook page, fans have asked a lot of questions on spices and herbs. I’m going to begin adding some information on the historical uses of spices and herbs and share a recipe focused on that spice/herb. My goal is to do a weekly story/article. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while and just didn’t have the time for it. 

Stay tuned readers, fresh content will be on its way!
