Ginger Tea

Many tea drinkers have their favorite variety, but I have to admit I like all kinds. My choice depends on the time of day and how I'm feeling. Few days pass that I don't enjoy both hot tea and iced tea of some kind. I do try to avoid any caffeinated teas after lunch, but the good news is, there are lots of decaffeinated choices available.

Naturally caffeine free ginger tea is one of my favorite choices. This tea is good any time of day, especially if you've been bitten by the nausea bug. Brew it up fresh and drink to your health.

Mother's Vintage Home Comfort Cookbook

My sister and I recently had a conversation about how to make a particular kind of coconut cake. The cake she described is not a recipe I have. I told her it sounded like a recipe we would find in Mother's old Home Comfort cookbook. The only problem is we don't have the cookbook.

Her cookbook was a manual/cookbook for a Home Comfort range. I enjoyed finding recipes in it when I was a young girl, however, I think it may have already been old enough to be vintage by the time I used it. When she passed away it was not in any kind of usable condition. Sadly, it had been virtually destroyed.

I'm searching for a copy of that cookbook to add to my collection. I've found some that were printed either earlier or later than the one Mother had. The contents may be the same or similar, but I'm wishing for one with a cover just like hers.

If someone happens to know where a cookbook like this one can be obtained, please send me the details. It would be a great addition to my collection. I might even find that coconut cake recipe or a new recipe I've never tried before.
