  1. Your great-great Grandmother Cook’s “Warshing Recipe” was sent by e-mail to us. We enjoyed it so much, my husband Larry Dablemont and I, would like to get permission to reprint it in our publication “The Lightnin’ Ridge Outdoor Journal.” If you would like to see information on our publication, go to or
    It is an old-fashioned magazine with a lot of nostalgia, humor, art work, and good stories.
    We have a section called, “Aunt Madge’s Recipes” where we’d love to use your recipe with accreditation going to Grandma Cook. Our subscription base is the Ozarks, but we send magazines to folks all over the U.S. and to several of our guys overseas. We will send you a sample copy if you will send us your address. Our E-mail address is We would love to hear from you. You have a great web site! And congratulations on your first grandbaby, she’s beautiful!!
