Daily question 963 winners

Posted by on

The winners
See who won our 963rd daily question below.

  1. kimberly – alltime favorite go to is Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book which was passed down to me from my grandmother when she passed away some odd twenty years or so. It’s a bit worn and well used but it has so many memories along with good recipes and lots of tips just couldn’t cook without it!!
  2. carpediem5790 – My favorite cookbooks are those in the Gooseberry Patch series. They are made by gathering recipes from people like you and me. Not only are they filled with wonderful recipes but also contain country crafts and lovely drawings of country scenes.The Christmas cookbooks are my favorites. They give away cookbooks all the time and have a website www.gooseberrypatch.com
  3. macmurry – The Frugal Gourmet Cooks American – by Jeff Smith It has recipes that come from all over american cooks and from all across the nation.
  4. Erin Estilette – It is a cookbook called “Talk about Good.” It was originally published by the service league of Lafayette, Louisiana in 1967. Recipes were provided by league members, friends, and relatives. It is a very popular cookbook in Louisiana, even to this day. You can still find new copies in gift shops and tourist locations. Most of everyone in my family has a copy. The one we have is old and tattered, stained, and full of notes by the recipes. It is heavily used in our kitchen!
  5. Susan Johnson – Jell-o and Cool Whip Desserts..simple, fun and even has low-fat recipes. I love dessert and that is how I remember to spell it. Dessert has two s’s because you always want more and desert has one because you do not want more sand.
  6. dottie p – betty crocker, my mom gave each one of us girls one on our wedding day. i wish i still had it, it was lost in a fire. but she wrote the most beautiful note in it. all of them different from each other. of course even with the cookbook, i can’t boil water, but hey, i try
  7. Nicole – my cousin created a cook book in honor of my grandmother who passed away shortly after i was born. it might seem (strange?) but i love to have it close by. makes me feel close to this woman who has nothing but good things said about her that i never got to officially meet. i had a brother who passed away in the same car accident, so in a way, i feel close to both of them while baking in the winter.
  8. Matt Dailey - Americas test kitchen has a book and every single recipe is awesome.
  9. Carol Ross – Rachael Ray’s The Book of Burger. Great comfort food.
  10. Leslie – The cookbook is entitled Cooking with Love. It was as a result of a fundraising event by the Womens Ministry at my church, Vernon Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Detroit, MI. Some very delicious recipes!
  11. tyra young – My favorite cookbook is “The Junior Betty Cocker” cookbook. This book taught me how to cook!
  12. Princess Efe Minty – Best Ever Indian Cookbook……….There are literally pictures for EVERYTHING. Every dish, every meal, and most ingredients! There are even step-by-step pictures in the recipe that breaks down how to do everything.
  13. Deb H. – I love the “Top Secret Recipes” books from Todd Wilbur. They have some of the most wonderful and popular restaurant recipes ever. Basically, if you have a favorite dish that is served in a popular restaurant, Todd may have the copy-cat version in his books. Here is the link: http://www.topsecretrecipes.co… Enjoy!
  14. Angielou123 – Mine is a little book called ‘Be-Ro Home Recipies’. Its dated october 1975 and I remember baking scones from it as a small child. My mum was going to chuck it out so I grabbed it, its like a treasure from my childhood! Id be interested to know if anyone else has a copy?
  15. Fred Zanfardino – “The Art of French Cooking,” by the late great Julia Childs! There’s not even a close second.
  16. Crizzy – My favourite recipe book is bursting at the seams – it’s a ‘scrap’ book compiled over the last 50 years with contributions from friends & relations, snippets from newspapers and long extinct magazines, hastily scrawled hints & tips from radio or TV on the back of envelopes and suggestions from food packaging. It doesn’t need onions to bring a tear to my eye when I thumb through the beautifully handwritten sheets of my Mother and Grandmother’s Christmas Cake, Mincemeat, Christmas Pudding and other seasonal favourite recipes. However there’s one recipe in there I’ve never used. After enjoying a very tasty Lunch party which I enthusiastically praised, the hostess offer me the recipe and very quickly produced a crisp white folded sheet of paper which went home with me. I don’t suppose it occurred to her that I could not decipher her Pitman shorthand!
  17. JaneS3 My most recent “go-to” cookbooks are The Barefoot Contessa series by Ina Garten. I have her first book by that name, and Parties, How Easy Is That, At Home, and Foolproof. All are recipes you can trust and never fail to please.
  18. nikki s – The one that my family put together for my great grandma’s 90th birthday. We all compiled our favorite recipes. We called it “Family Favorites”
  19. Julie Schoeff – The joys of cooking because it has so many recipes and helpful instructions so you can self teach to be a wonderful cook
  20. kandeels – We have a casserole cookbook which is great for when you have an ingredient, but do not know what to make. It includes a lot of great, downhome, yummy dishes. Just the other night, we made one of our favorite recipes, Pork in mustard sauce with dill pickles. Hold tight, may not sound the greatest, but once it is together, simmering in the oven, you just can not wait to get that great big scoop of pork, mustard sauce and dill pickles ladled over a heaping scoop of egg noodles….just waiting for the leftovers and the next ingredient that we need to make into a casserole!!!!

Daily question 962 winners

The winners
See who won our 962nd daily question below.

  1. martaeabreu – My favorite Disney park is Acuatica where my kids love going in the summer, where we enjoyed all the activities offered by the park
  2. Tuen – Tap water, just straight up, its the best
  3. Trish Hope – I love the water @ Cameron Lake.I live in an ocean side town,but FAR prefer fresh water
  4. Tabatha Howay – Rain water when it is falling down, hitting me, showering life into the Earth. I love a good thunderstorm and playing in a warm rain is also a very hard feeling to beat. Nature is awe-some!
  5. Claudia R – The Blue Pacific off Maui – snorkeling there with electric colored fish
  6. OceanGirl – Being that my username is OceanGirl, you would think that I would go with ocean water (which I do like). But, I’m going to fill you guys in on my favorite water that I try to get on clearance at Vitamin World. It’s called AQUA 9+. Here’s the fancy (I shortened it a bit too) description on the bottle: “Aqua 9+ replenishes electrolytes, with a stable alkalinity of pH 9-10…the water is free of impurities, fluoride, and BPA…infusion of magnesium, potassium, and calcium pearls…our unrivaled quest is to provide you with the finest natural ionic alkaline water.” Pretty fancy, right? I just hope that what it says is true, but I’ve heard good things about this purified water with ionic minerals!
  7. Deb H. – I love the water from a great hotel shower! I have well water and the pressure is just not the same.
  8. JaneS3 - The Chesapeake Bay – Just perfect for sailing.and for catching Maryland blue crab.
  9. michele – When it’s raining men. I really do love that song.
  10. Tony P. – Ethel Waters,she was one the most ground breaking entertainers of all time,sing that song lady.
  11. carpediem5790 – The water that melts from the snow on top of the Sierras and flows to fill the WATERFALLS of YOSEMITE; the water in Bridle Veil Falls, upper and lower Yosemite.I love the water in waterfalls – it touches me deeply with the grace as it falls,and the strength it shows as it cuts through róck. Waterfalls always make me cry! Such natural beauty is breathtaking!
  12. Crizzy – One of the most beautiful of the Lakes in the English Lake District is Rydal Water, close to the home of William Wordsworth and his family in his later life. No wonder he was inspired by such stunning scenery.
  13. Kimberly Johnson - My Favorite Water is right outside my back door and it’s called the Swift River in Mexico,Maine , It is made from several fresh water springs that join together as they flow from the mountains. There are tons of spots to pull over off the road and jump in to cool off on a hot summer day or pack up the car and hang out for the day and it don’t cost a penny. Now thats to me is the best kind of fun.People also Kayak.
  14. Deborah W – favorite water is in the hot tub that I have every other night after a hard day at work…soaking and soaking until the stress goes away….such a great feeling…
  15. Kalona – Purified water. more specifically, water that has been purified of chlorine, to which i am allergic. That’s hard to find these days!
  16. megan – Pool water I love the smell
  17. Helen R. - All of our water used in our house comes from the well in the yard. No chemicals, no plastic bottles, very refreshing and best of all – free.
  18. Judith Nelson – Mine would be the Water that I fill the Bird Bath with ,when the weather is hot I love to watch the Birds bathe in it they seem to say Thankyou as they fluff up their Feathers and cool them selves down….
  19. Ra-Ra – Spring water from the natural springs in Hot Springs, Arkansas. We have a fountain for hot & cold water. It’s well worth the drive in town just to fill a jug or two up.
  20. kandeels - Hall and Oates 80’s album H2O. Funny how water can take me right back…LOL!!!!
