Having gotten there early, she took some photos of the awesome arrangements and settings and delicious hors d'oeuvres that were so beautifully displayed. Thanks, Emily, and thanks to hosts Dr. and Mrs. Stone for opening their beautiful house to host such a worthy event.

In early September we were privileged to entertain a guest from Oerie, Germany. Kim was delightful and so curious about every thing American, especially the food! It was special that after tasting gumbo in two different restaurants, she liked homemade best. She tried everything I fed her in the week she was here and loved it all. Imagine watching someone eat grits for the first time! And then she was amazed at the wafer-thin bacon. Her favorite breakfast was Popover Pancakes.
We also took her on a river boat tour of the Mississippi, which was on her list of want-to-do's, and took the office crew and spouses with us. It was so much fun! And the sun setting on the river was awesome! We got to see so much more of our surroundings than we ever have. I recommend you take a visitor around, or just treat yourself as if you were. America is truly a beautiful country no matter where you go.

I really like the recipe for Cody Carrots in our Best of the Best from Big Sky Cookbook. It was shared by the Great Entertainer Cookbook, and I suppose Wild Bill Cody had something to do with it, perhaps if just to lend his name. Nevertheless, it has a bit of wildness to it, but delicious! Mention this blog by using the code BLOG when you checkout, and get a 20% discount through September 2011. You'll be glad you did!

Marie Louise Ludwig will be a back-up guest for Gwen Wednesday, January 12, at 3pm Eastern since Gwen is unable to make the scheduled appearance. Marie Louise has guest hosted Gwen's cookbooks on-air in the past and does a beautiful job of showing what the cookbooks are all about. We are hoping for a sell-out of the remaining 3,000 (out of 50,000) copies of this "While Supplies Last" bargain. Together, the two cookbooks retail for $39.90, and this incredible WSL has them both for just $16.21! You're getting over 900 recipes, all delicious, fast and fabulous, with, of course, lots of good reading inside. Better hurry...this won't last long.
