Congratulations! I love the Chicken Soup books... knowing someone who has contributed makes this edition that much MORE fun.


Congratulations! Always wonderful to see your name in print, especially when it's something you've written!


Congratulations indeed!!!! It has to be so wonderful for you to hold the book in your hands, and see your name. This is the start of many more books with your name on them!


Congratulations! Very cool indeed.


Thanks for being excited for me, y'all!


Glenna that is fabulous!



How fabulous!!!

Do you have plans for booksignings? Sending out press releases so the local media will know we've got a real, live "Chicken Soup" author here in the Ozarks?


Guido da Cook

Glenna - congratulations BIG time! :-) Being that you like cardamon, here's a recipe you might like - my congratulatory gift.


(“Pandoro” with Cardamom Custard and Chocolate Sauce)

Cardamom Custard
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1½ cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon cardamom pods
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until they are thick and pale in color.
Add the cornstarch, milk, and vanilla.
Mix well and transfer the mixture in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Add the cardamom pods to the mixture and cook, stirring constantly,
until the mixture thickens (enough to coat the back of the spoon).
Remove from the heat, strain the mixture and discard the cardamom pods.
Transfer the custard to a bowl and keep it refrigerated until ready to use it.

1 "Pandoro", about 1½ pounds *
8 ounces semisweet or bitter sweet chocolate, melted
powdered sugar
Spoon the cardamom custard on eight dessert plates.
Slice the “Pandoro” into eight wedges and place them over the custard.
Drizzle the “Pandoro” slices with the melted chocolate, the powdered sugar and serve


Yeah! That must be so exciting! I am very happy for you. And that version of Chicken Soup is right up my alley!



Deborah Dowd

Glenna, that is so exciting! Congratulations! I know you had a lot of material to choose from as a nurse since my daughter Katie is a nurse (she will graduate from a Nurse Anesthesia Master's program next Saturday!) I know you are excited to actually be in a book!

Paula from Only Cookware

Wow, now that is very cool. I remember when I was quite young and sent in some suggestions to the team at Europe on $25 a Day and they printed my suggestions in their book. It was great to see my name in print.


To everyone: Thank you so much for your congratulations and the support!

Jill--That hadn't even occurred to me! It's just a little story. Would they even be interested?

Brian--Thanks for the recipe--sounds delicious!!

Rachel--Do we work at the same place?

Deborah--Congrats to your daughter--VERY COOL!

Paula--Exactly--it's so cool! Congrats on yours!


I just did a happy dance in my chair in celebration for you! You deserve that and more Glenna :)


Thanks Kristina!!!!
