This cookbook is dedicated to that noble bird--the chicken. Without the chicken, what would we have for Sunday dinner, and where would we get our Easter eggs? And think of all the popular phrases we would lose, like "A chicken in every pot" or "hen party." And let's not forget "Why'd the chicken cross the road?"
So let us celebrate the chicken with these recipes. Oh, and be sure to make a wish on the wishbone!

Great idea for a cookbook, Ellen. Just think, if we didn't have chicken and dumplins, or fancy chicken salad for wedding receptions - this wouldn't be America! Thanks for including my recipe.

Oh, that sounds wonderful--I LOVE green olives. I could sit and eat a whole jar of them! I have some leftover olive pieces from when I made my olive spread, so I think I'll try it that way. Thank you!

Are you kidding? I'd love to do another one, but it takes forever for me to get the recipes in. I love the egg recipes that you've posted. Would you believe that our favorite egg salad is just chopped or grated boiled eggs, as many chopped green olives that we want, and lots of mayo? Very simple and ever so good! Maybe I'll put it in my recipes. Jackson can eat a ton of it!

Sandy, I'm glad you like the cookbook. When are we going to see your next one?

Thank you, ladies, for the kind words about my new cookbook. Kim, Sue, and Leila--it wouldn't be complete without your wonderful recipes!

Sue, that's what I've tried to do with many of my mother and mother-in-law's recipes, to carry on the tradition. I hope that at least one of my granddaughters will do the same when I'm gone.

Ellen, what a wonderful selection of chicken recipes. I have to go back and look again as there are a few I want to save too. Thanks for including one of my recipes into your cookbook.

I didn't know you were making a cookbook...I love it...and thank you SO much for adding my recipe...My mother-in-law made it all the time and I took the honor over and made it for my family. You have such a wit about you and very cleverly make a wonderful point. Again Thank you! You are so sweet....
