Eva’s Cookbook

Several years ago my sisters put together a collection of our family recipes as a Christmas present for my mother and myself.  The cookbook was a bit infamous for the typos in it.  This past year, I edited and expanded their original cookbook.  A full disclaimer: despite this being a website about gardening and generally healthy cooking, my childhood involved many a chocolate chip cookie and so this cookbook tends to favor the sweeter side of life.

I published the book on Lulu. You can download a free copy as a PDF file!

If you’d like to use the book in your kitchen, please consider buying a lovely paper copy. It’s spiral-bound so it lays flat in your cookbook holder. The cost is $20 plus shipping.
