Seven Quick Takes about With the Help of Thy Grace Cookbook and a Giveaway!

seven quick takes friday 2

  1. With the Help of Thy Grace is a Catholic Cookbook.  Besides recipes that will look familiar to those who love church cookbooks, it also contains spirtual readings and meditations on most pages.  You can read my review of the book here.

  2. One thing I like about church cookbooks is that the recipes are things people actually eat. I reviewed a cookbook once that had a recipe that took two days to make and used over twenty-seven ingredients.  Those types of recipes aren't found in cookbooks like With the Help of Thy Grace.

  3. I've made two recipes from With the Help of Thy Grace.  One was Sweet and Sour Pork Chops.  You'll have to come back in a few days to get the recipe and see how they looked after I cooked them.  They were good, at least according to the food critics who live at my house.

  4. I also made Cheesy Baked Chicken which had a crust made of breadcrumbs and cheddar cheese.  Yummy!
  5. You can order a copy of With the Help of Thy Grace from Catholic Word.  Isn't the cover pretty?
  6. Catholic Word is sponsoring a giveaway of this cookbook.  For every twenty people who enter (that's unique people, not entries) they will give away one cookbook.  Isn't that generous?
  7. There is a recipe for Tomato Soup Cake, that contains a can of tomato soup, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, nuts and raisins.  Has anyone every made Tomato Soup Cake?

  1. I love cookbooks! My favorite liturgical year tie-in dish is St. Lucy's Bread. When my kids were younger I would make that for breakfast on her feast day. (Barb Szyszkiewicz, cookbookmom AT gmail DOT com)

  2. Since I have adopted St. Martha as my honorary patron saint, the title of this book intrigues me. After reading the description, I'm even more interested in reading it:

  3. I would follow you on Twitter but I can't find your Twitter handle anywhere! Mine is @franciscanmom. Tweet at me and I'll be happy to follow :)

  9. We make burritos to celebrate the feast day for Our Lady of Guadalupe.

  10. I liked the idea of the book
    I think I might try that book out. It is difficult to explain the Catholic faith to my non dom daughter in law.
