A year of celebrations....Cookbook Wednesday!

There are seasons of celebrating all through the year, and today's featured cookbook covers all of them!

It is eye-catching from the beginning!

From 1999 by Jane Breskin Zalben, there is quite a complete Table of Contents!

During this time of year, my thoughts go to St. Patrick's Day, and Ms. Zalben definitely covers that with some great suggestions.

Who can go wrong with Irish Soda Bread, Potato Soup, and Corned Beef and Cabbage?  I say - "Bring it on!":-)

My favorite part of the book, however, is this page from the front -

It is good to be reminded about the source of all our gifts.

Linking today with Months of Edible Celebrations.


  1. Lovely cookbook. I love cookbooks like that so much. That one looks like a keeper.

  2. Nellie, That seems to be more than a cook book. Such pretty verses and pictures. Something for every holiday. Hope you are having some nice weather. We have nice temperatures but foggy. xoxo,Susie

  3. Hi Nellie!
    You did a GREAT job of adding your link for Cookbok Wednesday! I knew you would get the hang of it:)

    This is just my type of book considering I post daily and monthly celebrations on my blog. I have added it to the top of my "someday" list. Just look at all those celebrations!!!

    Thank you so much for joining us once again for Cookbook Wednesday and for sharing this wonderful book!!!

  4. What a beautiful cookbook for all the special holidays. I hope your St Patrick meal reflects some of the menu suggested in the book. I love Corned Beef and Cabbage but I usually add onions and carrots.
    I add my cabbage before the other vegetable as I like it well cooked.

    My husband and I had a meal of corned beef and cabbage at a well know pub and the cabbage was so tough and there was so much of it that we didn't enjoyed our meal very much.

    It's just glorious outside and the snow is melting.


  5. Oh, my goodness!!! I can just taste the meal in my imagination, and it is delicious! Thank you for the share and all the great ideas! Hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday, Sister!

  6. Another good one. You have a wonderful collection of cookbooks.
    I have a recipe for Iris Soda Bread that I haven't made in years. I think I just might bake one next week. : )

  7. I love these kinds of cookbooks, because I love cooking seasonal meals.

  8. Girl, you have a massive collection of cookbooks! Wish I enjoyed cooking more. My most favorite cooking... is when someone else does it!

  9. I LOVE cookbooks like that where they spell out a full meal for you for the Holiday. Great book!!!! xo Diana

  10. I love celebrating each and every holiday. This looks like a wonderful cookbook. You really do have a wonderful collection.
