COOKBOOK FOR SALE: My name is Benita McCoy Lyons, and
I am a descendant of the Hatfield-McCoy feud of American folklore.
My cookbook, Scratch Cooking 2, It's The Real McCoy, is now available.
I am the founder, owner, and guiding force behind "It's
The Real McCoy," a company based in Lexington, Kentucky,
that markets this cookbook and my catering. I learned these recipes
from my McCoy ancestors. Recipes in this cookbook name their
sources, so readers can learn to make "Florene's Fresh Apple
Cake," "Aunt Loretta's Corn Pudding," and "Idy
Mae's Sour Dough Bread." Cooking comes so naturally to me
that I only recently began writing my recipes down and measuring
ingredients. I began keeping track of my methods and quantities
only because friends urged me to record my recipes for others'
benefit. My excellence has been recognized by the Kentucky Department
of Agriculture, which certified me as an official Kentucky Food
Producer whose products are good enough to bear the Pride of
Kentucky label. I hope this book helps you to understand my feelings
for the uniquely beautiful Appalachian culture, of which I and
the famous feud are only small parts. The book is spiral-bound,
has 271 pages, and is priced at $23.95, plus $3.50 postage and
handling. Allow four to six weeks for delivery. Make checks or
money orders payable and send to: "It's The Real McCoy,"
