This cookbook is compiled by Louise Stoltzfus,and offers more than 900 recipes in 14 categories. In her introduction Louise writes, "Quilters find community in common goals and activities. We talk of needles and thread, fabric and stitches and bedcovers and pieces of art. Many of us are also homemakers. Some of us treat cooking and quilting both as high art forms. Some of us work hard to prepare varied and healthful meals for our families. Others experience ongoing disasters because we become engrossed in quilting and forget the carrots or potatoes or beans." This collection of recipes includes submissions from California to New York, from Honolulu to Florida, in categories from appetizers to desserts and candies, from bread or breakfast food to main dishes, vegetable dishes and pies.

Weird Ohio, Your Travel Guide to Ohio's Local Legends and Best Kept Secrets, is written by James A Willis, Andrew Henderson, and Loren Coleman, and published by Sterling Publishers. This is one of the favorite books our guests enjoy, and when you read the flyleaf, it's easy to see why. "Ah, Ohio, so nice and normal. We have apple-pie heroes like Hopalong Cassidy, Neil Armstrong, Thomas Edison, and Doris Day. . . We started America rolling by opening the first gas station, and we have a museum dedicated to America's music, rock and roll. But there's something else we have a whole lot of, and that's . . . weirdness. Yes, the Buckeye state has lots and lots of strange people and unusual sites, and they burst forth from every page of this, the biggest, most bizarre collection of Ohio stories ever assembled: Weird Ohio." Once you start to read, you won't want to put it down.
