"Your recipes have brought many warm smiles to my table.  Everybody always asks me for my "secrets" to my cooking.....and I always respond by syaing it starts with a menu/plan and great recipes!  Your cookbook(s) have both; I have especially enjoyed your menu selection and personal comments throughout your book.  Thank you for the generous amount of time and energy you have given to share your "secrets" with so many families.  I have become a better cook/planner of meals because of your talents in sharing your knowledge and skills."
From a kitchen in Bedford, VA

"Your cookbooks are such a treasure.  My whole family loves the simple, easy to prepare recipes.  I have many cookbooks, but I always come back to "Granny's".  The recipes are simple and always yield great results.  I also love the notes that you have included and feel like I know Ruthola, etc.  It is kind of like the "Andy Griffith" of cookbooks.

"I'd like to say thank you for a wonderful cookbook.  My mother gave me both of your books years ago and I treasure them (so does my family!!!)  I'm passing them on to both of my duaghters and my mother-in-law, as they have copied so many recipes.  I think they could use their own!"
