    Congratulations! I am so happy for you. My family tells me that I talk about you like you are a member of the family. I quote you often. I love your recipes, your inspiring stories and your wisdom. I loved the story about your mule and depression. You don’t realize how much you help people. You make this world a better place, because you are genuine and down-to-earth.

    At one time there was a new girl on the block named ‘Oprah’ who made her debut and made it big. Now the new girl is ‘Christy Jordan’ who is making her debut and soon to make it big. Congratulations Christy, you worked hard and deserve this new journey!

    Such good new, so proud of you and for you! It’s good news for us because we will see you on a much bigger platform … looking forward to what you add to an already wonderful magazine. Congrats Christy!

    Now that is NICE! Good to see that a magazine is finally recognizing that the average home maker and cook (whether for a family or just herself) is looking for recipes that are easy, have fewer than 2 dozen ingredients, and when done taste great! Your ckbk is the one I use for new ideas (and yes even after cooking 47 years for family and now just husband and me I look for new ideas).
    I have recently given up several subscriptions to magazines just because the recipes were nothing real people would ever cook and eat ( I mean I am soooo tired of lobster with truffle sauce–yeah like that is going to happen in my kitchen)
    So bottom line congratulation! and it is really good that what you do is being recognized. Carry ON !!
