The Gourmet Frog

Among Fr. Frog's vast interests is the love of good, hearty food, drink, and cooking. While most folks think that a frog has simple tastes (You know, "A frog's happiness is being able to eat what bugs him.") Fr. Frog has developed deep interest in good, hearty, yet simple food--especially when shared with good friends in a casual and relaxed setting.

As an avid fan of things that happened in the past (way back when men were men, women were women, and the government kept its nose out of the peoples' business) the flippered Father has spent much time researching the great men and women (and amphibians) of the past. During one research project, while on an archeological dig, Fr. Frog discovered the long lost recipes of a person known as Fr. Cooky, an ancient Anglican monk who specialized in saving souls from the sins of lousy food and useless calories.

After deciphering many of the ancient writings (frequently referred to as "The Frog Pond Scrolls") Fr. Frog formed a company called Fr. Cooky Industries, Inc., to make these writings available to all men (and women) of good will (and appetites). If you would like a copy of these most excellent recipes, each of which includes a nifty humorous story about the origins of the dish, along with the story of Fr. Cooky's life, please send $8.00 in cash, check, or gold bullion to cover cost plus postage, for a copy on 8.5" x 11" plain white paper, or $10.00 for a copy on "genuine aged parchment," to:

Fr. Cooky Archives

Cottonwood, AZ 86326

Make your checks payable to "John Schaefer." Overseas orders must be paid for in US Dollars in cash or via Western Union.  Please add an additional $3.00 to defray overseas postage.

Recipes are shipped "unbound" so you can put them in the binder of your choice.  If you would like to have the nicely spiral bound with a clear plastic cover please add $5 per copy to cover costs plus increased postage.

Your stomach will thank you. Millions of happy stomachs can't be wrong!
