As the editor and publisher of The Everything But the Ordinary Cookbook, I would be remiss not to give credit and a huge thank you to all of the members of for the recipe contributions and quotations that make up this first cookbook! Members’ favorite recipes were posted in several forum threads on over a two year period, dating back to the fall of 2008. Each of the submitted recipes was re-formatted and standardized. Then, an active link to each contributor’s booth was included at the top of each recipe they submitted. So, be sure to visit their booths to browse, buy or thank them for their recipe. I’m sure they would be delighted to meet you! To whet your appetite, you’ll find a wide variety of tried and true recipes, including recipes for appetizers, soups, casserole dishes, chutneys and chowders, cookies for humans, cats and horses (yes, I said horses), pies, cakes, meats and sea foods, salads, marinades, drinks (including one for those winter sniffles), specialty recipes including suet for winter birds, homemade pancake syrups and even a trail ride saddleback snack. As promised, this cookbook has recipes that are everything but the ordinary. In the Appendix, at the end of this book, you’ll also find some very useful links from the internet to use in your cooking. I hope this cookbook becomes one of your favorites! Sandy of BargainBasement on Bonanzle This has always puzzled me, just how much is a pinch? These recipes of dear Grandma’s surely are no cinch. A snip of this, a dab of that, a lump of something else. Then, beat it for a little while, or stir until it melts. I have to be a wizard to decipher what she meant by all the strange proportions in her cookbook worn and bent. How much nutmeg in the doughnuts? Grandma wouldn’t flinch as she said with twinkling eyes, “Oh, just about a pinch.” There must have been in her wise head a measuring device that told her just how much to use of sugar, salt and spice.
