A very good idea . . .

Throughout my life I have been fortunate to have an incredibly talented family, that I have learned a few things from.  As you can guess, cooking is one of those things that I have learned from numerous individuals and experiences.  One of those individuals is my Aunt Bonnie, who just recently came out with a DVD detailing her secrets to some of the most incredible pies doughs, sour dough biscuits, apple dumplings and other creations for which she is famous for. 

These are some of the most amazing baked goods I have ever had, and I have had alot.  Check out her secrets at www.bonniehamiltonstore.com

    Hi Shawn,
    I just clicked on this link to see what it was and was so pleasantly surprised to see your comments. Thank you so much! I’ll do all I can to promote your book, as well. I’m going to put my DVD in some stores here. I’ll print out a little flyer to advertise your book. Do you have any printed literature, like a flyer? Your book looks great. I’m placing my order right now.
