Here we have a cookbook, "Plain Good Cookin'" by Ginnie Bedell of Plains, Georgia, signed in pen on the flysheet by the author.

Sally, my SPCA Border Terrier, is in the photo for modeling purposes only (golly, her fees are high!) and is not included in the sale.

This book is undated, but a photograph printed on the flysheet shows the author with FIrst Lady Rosalynn Carter, putting this volume at 1977 to 1981. It is subtitled "Ste. Genevieve Plain Good Cookin'."

This softcover, plastic comb cookbook is a Deep South treasury of comfort foods and classics, along with helpful hints, a special section on peanut recipes, relishes, pickles, preserves, party foods, beverages, pastries, Southern sweets, seafoods, grits, rice, salads, soups, gumbos, and even a section of Carter family favorites. It has 222 pages in all. The author provided illustrations.

Book Condition: Very Good with the expected age-tanning and light markings on the cover as shown in the image. This is a solid copy.

This volume contains wonderful Southern recipes and will make a fabulous addition to your collection. You'll be all set for family home cooking or entertaining!

Thanks for looking!
