One of my long time favorite cookbooks has been the Heritage Salt Lake Jr. League Cookbook. First printed in 1975, it has become a cookbook classic. I know with the age of computers, blogs, online magazines and websites, purchasing cookbooks may seem silly to some. But there is absolutely nothing like holding a good book in your hands. Even though I have an electronic device for reading books, I still like to thumb through pages, mark them, and stack them up next to my bed. The last real book I read was The Help, almost two years ago. I know. Two years since I’ve finished a real book?? It’s because I spend my time reading cookbooks 🙂 The latest in my stack of cookbooks was Miette, “recipes from San Francisco’s most charming pastry shop.” It’s a beautiful book with darling scalloped page edges. The photos of the shop and the cakes are inspiring to say the least. It makes me want to hop on a plane and be in SF by lunchtime. Soon I’ll make a cake and share my Miette cooking adventures! So yes, I do love the Internet, and I have fun blog and site jumping. But nothing will ever replace my cookbooks. It’s been a while since I’ve done a cookbook giveaway, so today, I’m having a little pre-holiday-get-inspired to cookupastorm giveaway! I thought about giving these books away to several people, but then decided- wouldn’t it be so wonderful to win all four??? So fun.

Yikes. I almost forgot the recipe!
We made these on Halloween. Our Halloween tradition has been chicken noodle soup and scones for years. These are my very favorite. They come from the old SLC Jr. League Heritage Cookbook. The recipe comes from Donna Lou Morgan, Food Editor of the Salt Lake Tribune for years. Her professional name was “Bonnie Lake”. How cute is that?
