  6. this is like an answer to my thought last night- about trying to be more open to hosting and improving on my cooking skills. Thank you for the inspiration. I signed up for the 5-day prezies, and pinterest…looking forward to learning and implementing! :)

  7. Thanks for the opportunity to win the book, Sharon. I’m a collector of recipes and cookbooks. I will put them to good use when life calms down a bit, or when I get a bit more disciplined at meal planning. The latter will likely occur first in all reality. I’ll provide additional contact info if I win the book, as my post provides my email address for contact. Thanks!

    1. Thanks, Nancy. SerenDIPity shares this hospitality idea, and I share a few of the recipes that won awards by our guests. :) I do hope you enjoy it!
