“It’s a recipe book that spans a century. It’s a snapshot of celebrations past.”
I’ve shared before about that wonderful, red and white checked cookbook my mother gave me when I was a new bride. It contains a treasure of recipes, handed down from my great-grandmother to my grandmother to Nana.
And then to me. Not only that but Nana wrote her own comments and tips on each and every recipe. It’s such a priceless and generous gift. Makes me smile every time I open it!
“I think this was the first dish I ever cooked. I didn’t know what chicken parts were what – so I cooked the neck and back and threw away the breasts.” ~ Nana’s comment on the Forget It Chicken recipe
Some of those recipes are here on Hodgepodge. I’ve passed them on to you. Some of them I’ve shared at $5 Dinners as a contributing writer there. More often these days I’ve heard, “you should write a cookbook.” It’s what we Southern women do – we pass on these frugal, basic meals that have blessed our families. Hand them down.
I’m doing that in a modern way. It’s a Hodgepodge of eCookbooks. For you, dear readers!
Sunday Savings was born from my Fast Food for Slow Sundays series. Southern Celebrations is a simple sharing of classic Southern recipes for ladies luncheons and showers. Spring is surely the time for those! And Slow Cooker Batch Cooking is that life-changing tip from my friend, Little Sanctuary, plus the how-tos for getting that main ingredient cooked and ready to pull from the freezer.
“It’s time I heed Tricia’s fabulous advice and get her mouthwatering recipes going in my slow cooker on Sundays. I do experience “that moment” that she describes and would love to start this simple and practical way to simplify Sunday Supper, and rest easy on the day I need to rest. Thank you, dear Tricia, for sharing these Sunday Suppers and the Sunday Savings!” ~ Erin Chase of $5 Dinners

I’m such a HUGE Hodgepodge fan! Once you discover Tricia’s generous heart, wonderful tips, and creative spin on daily life, you will be, too! ~ Christy Jordan of Southern Plate
