Some of you may know that I used to be really good about blogging. Lately, busy with two kids, work, and a job search, I’ve been slacking. Back when I was blogging a lot, I had a food blog called Syrup and Cornbread (you can still access it in the link on the sidebar) and I posted MaMa Nola’s brownie recipe. One day I got a call from a very nice lady who asked to use this recipe in a cookbook which would feature recipes from home cooks across the country. I gave her the recipe and never heard anything. Well, the other day at church, a friend stopped me and said that she thought she saw my name in a new cookbook she’d just bought. Sure enough, MaMa Nola’s brownie recipe has now been published! It’s in One Big Table: A Portrait of American Cooking compiled by Molly O’Neill. I’ve scanned the page for you:

I sent most of you an e-mail, but thought I’d post it here too (I don’t have the energy to call everyone, but do feel free to call if you want to chat). I’ve accepted a position at the National Archives in College Park, MD, and I start on Jan. 18th. We’ll be moving around the first of Feb., and I’ll be in touch with my new address, etc.
Hope all is well with you and you had a Merry Christmas!

I just thought I would share this book with everyone. It’s all about the festivals held in South Louisiana, and even features the Cattle Festival in Abbeville! The man who wrote it lives here in Arlington, MA, and our daughters went to school together. It was pretty funny when we were talking on the playground and he told me that he’d spent some time in Abbeville. That was certainly a first.

Anyway, here’s the link to a description on LibraryThing  (a fun, if nerdy way to pass the time and learn about new books), if any of you are interested:  Rhinestone Sisterhood: A Journey Through Small Town American, One Tiara At a Time.


Michael Hebert is a full professor at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine, effective July 1, 2010.

Congrats, Michael … and Hotty Toddy!
