Country Fair Blog Party: October 2015

It certainly feels like October 1st outside, so that means it is time for a new Country Fair Blog Party, which I'm happy to be a co-host of.  Before I show this month's link-up, I'm going to share my three Blue Ribbon winners from September's Country Fair Blog Party:

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner - Dirt Under My Fingernails: From Scratch
My first Blue Ribbon Winner is Dirt Under My Fingernails: From Scratch post.  This post not only shares a very exact, and well worked recipe for Angel Food Cake.  But it is also a story of Julie, of Dirt Under My Fingernails's Aunt Millie, who makes this cake for everyone's birthday and pays homage to her mother's (Julie's grandmother) hand-written notes at the same time.  Does your family have a recipe that has become a staple over generations?  How about those certain recipes that bring back memories?  Or do you love a good church cookbook recipe that has dog eared recipes, sticky pages and stains from lots of use.  If so, you'll have to check out this post!

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner - Devastate Boredom: What to Read and Not to Read
My second Blue Ribbon winner goes to Sarah of Devastate Boredom.  In her post What to Read... and NOT to Read she shares her library list run down for the year so far, along with book reviews and overviews.  I am personally always looking for some new books to add to my "book list" so this was a great post to get some new ideas.  I am impressed with all of the books she has read this year and the wide variety of genres.  I think everyone can find something new to read from Sarah's book reviews.

Country Fair Blog Party Blue Ribbon Winner - Kellie for Ag: Farming - The Best Anti-Depressant
My final Blue Ribbon winner goes to Kellie for Ag.  She shares a very open and honest post about depression through her Farming - The Best Anti-Depressant post.  In her post she shares many things that I think of that make me love farming, but for Kellie, these things literally help her survive.
