Mrs. Henderson's Recipe Box

I'm thrilled to announce a project in conjunction with Courtney Callo, the comfort-food expert from Willoughby's Depot Eatery, to bring you some of the classic recipes from my novel Henderson House! There is also an opportunity for YOU to participate in the creation of this digital download cookbook. 


A list of the recipes mentioned in the novel appears below. If you have a related recipe you'd like to share, a family story connected to one of these dishes, or even better, an old family photo in the kitchen or around the dining table, please email it to Read the submission guidelines here.


We will let you know if we are able to use your submission in the project! Everyone who enters the Henderson House Pre-Order Sweepstakes will receive the digital download cookbook via email as soon as it is complete.
