The Bible Cookbook

My mother's cookbook. "The Bible Cookbook." Faith and Food. The Bethany Press, St. Louis. 1958. Author--Marian Maeve O'Brien. A culinary expert and writer. Endeared by readers of House and Garden, Vogue, Ladies' Home Journal, Better Homes and Gardens. Food editor for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

From the book flap:

"Mrs. O'Brien firmly believes one of our greatest gifts from God is the pleasure of having our family gathered around the dining table for a delicious meal."

The book begins with this:
 
My Faith
For I am sure
 that neither death, nor life,
 nor angels, nor principalities
 nor things present, nor things to come,
 nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
 nor anything else in all creation,
 will be able to separate us
 from the love of God...
~Romans 8:38-39
