Church community fundraiser recipe book cookbook THANK HEAVEN FOR HOME MADE COOKS … YUMMY RECIPES
, compiled by the Women’s Missionary Society of McKenney Baptist Church, McKenney, VA Virginia.
Of special interest is a Dedication page honoring India Anna Virginia Jones Wagstaff
(see image). Although cookbook is not dated, there is a calendar page at rear for the years 1991, 1992 and 1993, so I’m assuming this is 1991
. Also at the end of cookbook is an offer to order copies for $10.00/copy plus $2.00 postage&handling … and that was more than 25 years ago!
This recipe book measures approx 6-1/2”x 9-1/4” with 209
indexed pages. Cookbook is full of typed-format recipes with no advertising or illustrations filler, and with 563 recipes
and 89 unique contributors
, you KNOW there is a good variety of MANY good recipes!

Family-Size Brunswick Stew
2-1/2 to 3-lb chicken
2 pieces celery
1 small onion
2 qt tomatoes, fresh or canned
1 cup chopped onion
3 medium white potatoes, peeled, but still whole
1 qt green butter beans, drain if canned
1 qt whole kernal corn, drain if canned
5 Tbsp sugar
salt to taste
red & black pepper to taste
Place chicken, celery and small onion in a large kettle. Add about a quart of water. Simmer until meat is tender or begins to loosen from bones. Lift chicken from broth. Cool the broth and discard the celery. Remove meat from bones and cut into small pieces.
Add tomatoes, chopped onions and whole potatoes to broth. Continue cooking over medium heat. Remove potatoes when tender, mash and return to stew. (Some cooks omit this step and dice the potatoes before adding them to the stew.)
Add cut-up chicken, butter beans, corn and sugar. Add salt and pepper to taste.Bring to a boil while stirring. Cover, lower heat and simmer slowly, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, for 3 to 5 hours, or until tomatoes have cooked to pieces.
Yield: 6 quarts
Good, and I checked EVERY page to enter all the names! (I include ALL names in ALL fundraiser-type cookbooks because I know how frustrating it is to hope and wonder if specific contributors are included in a book, only to find out they’re not, upon receipt.) Covers and pages are clean and tight to all 15 plastic spirals. No tears, no chips, no defective spirals, no missing pages. Only a small dog-ear on corner tip bottom of page 51/52 and light shelf wear of both covers bottom edges, not bad considering they support a very thick 1” plus book that protected the spirals by being stored upright. Books are NOT
from smoke-free or pet-free environment. Please see above 2 supersized images ... they are part of the description. Email with questions or requests.
Buyer pays $4.00 Media/Bookrate s/h and Seller will add to your $4.00 and pay the extra dollars for upgrade to FIRST CLASS/PRIORITY that will include insurance, tracking number/info, faster delivery, and more gentle handling by the USPS than Media/Bookrate to better protect the plastic spirals on your keepsake.
Seize this scarce book for posterity, the descendants, future generations of those who contributed the recipes ... this legacy may be all there is! … Perfect as a gift for birthdays, Christmas, newborn grandchild or just to say “I love you and cherish the memories.”
