Labor Day is almost here!

Can you believe it?

While many of you may be lighting the BBQ off for one last hurrah, some of you may not want to bother with it.

But how about a recipe for inside BBQ ribs?

I've got a GREAT one that comes from a new source:


That manna from heaven!

Plus I have a special giveaway as well!

This recipe booklet from Maxwell House is vintage in that it is from 1981! Yet it has some really great and simple recipes, that use coffee or instant coffee in them!

It has 63 pages of recipes ranging from breakfast to lunch to dinner, snacks, drinks, and desserts. Plus it has a history of coffee and some really great how tos and tips! 

I'm' cleaning out my cookbooks, so when I saw this one, I knew it would be a great 'Welcome to Fall season' giveaway!

Course I had to add a pack of our local Community Coffee! their Breakfast Blend might just convert you over!

And ow for that BBQ recipe before the giveaway!
