      Hi, Rick.  My old brain failed me.  I have 2 Fayetteville cookbooks, one is the 100 Years of Cooking with St. Anne.  It is in a small 3-ring binder, about 250 pages.  There are not many Czech recipes.

      The second one is the one I was thinking of.  It is called Fayetteville Cookbooks:  No. I -  issued 1921; No. II -  Issued 1928; No. III - Issued 1988 (Issued by the Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum).  Interestingly the 1921 and 1928 sections have almost no Czech titles for the recipes, but reflect a farming community style of eating.  The recipes are typically 3-10 lines with just a few ingredients.  The 1988 section has a fair sprinkling of recipes with Czech titles.  My aunt, Olga Gully,   is listed as the contact person to get copies, but she is in her mid-80's now.  I can't get to the Internet right now, but maybe there is a way to contact the  Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum.  Ditto about posting this message to the TexasCzechs.  Feel free to pass this message along--maybe our server is down.

        Julie,

        I have a cookbook titled Memorial Book and Recipes, Czech Catholic
        Home for the Aged, Inc.. It was originally published in 1957. I
        have my mother's torn and tattered, soiled copy from that date. The
        cookbook was reprinted just recently and I also have a "new" copy.
        It was available to buy at Novak's Meat Market in El Campo, Texas
        for about $10 about a year ago. It may also be available from the
        Czech Catholic Home, Route 3, El Campo, Texas 77437. You said that
        you were interested in cookbooks published by church groups. Well,
        this cookbook is unique. It has recipes that are current to the
        50's but also kolachy recipes, head sausage recipes, poppy seed
        cake, spiced tongue, goulash, liver-onion patties, dumplings, egg
        noodles, sweet chips, bunches of cookies, and houska to mention only
        some of them. The contributor of each recipe is listed and reads as
        a list of Czech names.

        The hints for kitchen, laundry, sewing, etc are fun to read. For
        example: a laundry hint: "Sprinkle clothes right on the line if
        you have a garden hose (turn on spray). Roll clothes as you take
        them down." It contains ads from businesses of the era from all
        over Czech Texas and the whole thing is a great reflection of the
        culture of the times. Lots of pictures of churches and people. A
        few pictures are very old.

          Hi Elaine -

          I was reading your e-mail like you had sent it to me, then
          realized it was to another Julie. And on top of that, you
          mentioned the Novak Meat Market in El Campo - they were my mom's
          cousins! Mom was a Korenek from Dubina. I have never been to the
          meat market, need to make a trip out there one day. Where are you
          originally from? I grew up in Ammannsville.

          Have a good day - love the cooler weather!

              What a fun topic for a thesis!

              I have two Texas Czech cookbooks from the 1960s. The first is "Our
              Favorite Recipes." It was published by the Christian Sisters Society of
              the Taylor Brethren Church in 1963. Many of the people in this
              congregation came from the Vsetin region in Moravia, a stronghold of
              Hussite protestants. This book contains the kolac recipe of the Taylor
              Christian Sisters; for many years they baked thousands of kolace every
              month and sold them to raise money. It also contains my grandmother's
              astonishingly good sour cream cake and sour cream icing recipe. There
              are also two Moravian molasses cookie recipes, several pickle recipes,
              and--my favorite--a kapanky (egg drop dumplings) recipe. My mother made
              kapanky very often; she would drop the kapanky dough (flour, egg, and
              salt mixture of a runny consistency) into chicken broth that usually
              also had onion, tomatoes, celery, and lots of parsley. So delicious. A
              little like Chinese egg drop soup, except the Czechs always used flour
              in the mixture. Most of the other recipes are American.

              The second book is called "Our Favorite Recipes." It was compiled by the
              Christian Sisters Organization of the Austin Brethren Church in 1966.
              This one has a couple of sauerkraut salads, a recipe for potato
              dumplines with prunes (sisky), poppy seed cake (this was the kind of
              cake my father always wanted for his birthday; it has lots of
              poppyseed), an old (19th century for sure) recipe for
              "Great-Grandmother's Oatmeal Cookies," something called "Czech Apple
              Strudel," and my other grandmother's Christmas cookie recipe that she
              copied from a 1920 issue of "Physical Culture Magazine." It is similar
              to the Moravian molasses cookie recipes in the Taylor book.

              I would be happy to copy these books and send them to you if you think
              they would be useful. I also have several family recipes I would be glad
              to share. For example, my mother's incredible dill pickle recipe (cold
              pack, flavored with garlic, dill, and mustang grape leaf), rice pudding
              with prunes, my mother's rye bread recipe, my grandmother's caraway
              cheese recipe (there was recent discussion of this type of cheese on
              this site), my mother's heavenly chicken and dumpling recipe, and Mary
              Mrazak's recipe for chocolate cake (a great Czech cook from south Texas).

              This has gotten to be kind of long-winded. I love this food so much it's
              hard to say only a few words. Let me know if any of this might be
              helpful to you.

              Oh! I forgot one of my favorites! Nelsonville Stew! My father was the
              preacher at the Nelsonville Brethren Church during the 1940s and 1950s.
              One of the yearly church dinners featured a poultry stew, similar to
              stews served in many rural areas of America. Some places this stew would
              be made with squirrel. In Nelsonville, the cooks made it with turkeys,
              potatoes, lima beans, corn, and chili powder (Gebhardt's, I believe).
              They made it outdoors in big vats over an open fire.

              Did I mention the mutton? You see, I could go on and on. I better sign
              off now.
