In my previous post, you met Ms. New Orleans 2014, Lindsay Reine. In this post, you’ll get a chance to win her cookbook.
This review is different than most. There are no spoiler alerts. No characters to introduce you to. Just some mighty fine eats.

Note: This post was originally written on Sunday, January 20, 2013, then updated for a previous Kickstarter Campaign. Because there are new backers for the current project [June 4 – July 4, 2013], I’m once again posting this information to reflect further questions and answers, as well as to clarify those already posted.
I call it
The Kickstarter pre-order (and RE-order) Campaign!
Whether you’re a long-time friend or an infrequent visitor to Frankly, My Dear… you’re probably aware that I’m trying to raise funds to publish more copies of THE UNEMPLOYMENT COOKBOOK COLLECTION.

It’s another whirlwind week here at the Blog… It’s been so busy, I can’t believe it’s already Thursday and not only Tuesday evening. But that’s good because that means tomorrow’s Friday. And you know what that means: another Five Things Friday post! So be sure to come back tomorrow to share your Friday Five stories. There’s a theme, there’s always a theme. But I’m not telling. It’s a surprise. Guess you’ll just have to come back tomorrow. Yay! I love company!
Things keep falling into place with the New Blog design and the writing and the housing projects. Every day … read the rest. . .
