I discovered this material after I found a copy in the Kansas City public library of "The Millers of Millersburg" by Harry Middleton Hyatt. This book has been referred to in the KYBOURBO mailing list numerous times. The Miller family was one of the founding families in Bourbon and Nicholas counties. They also intermarried with many of the other founding families, among whom was the Baker family.
At a visit to a local LDS Family History center, I decided to look up Harry Hyatt's name to see what else he might have written, and I luckily found that he had begun a book about the Baker family, but he died before he could publish it. He collected a lot of material, mostly hand written, collected from courthouse records in Ky. and Missouri, and from other contributors. His work was microfilmed by the Kentucky Historical Society, and is also available through the LDS, on 7 microfilm reels. Below I have typed out the description from the LDS catalogue:

This cookbook, which was edited by the Ladies of the Presbyterian Church of Paris, KY, has several advertisements from local businesses and has a list of contributors with the name of the town in which they resided. Darleen thought other researchers would find the list of contributors invaluable. The recipes are arranged by food category and would require viewing each page individually to determine who contributed which recipe. Due to the fragile condition of the pages, she understandably does not want to do multiple searches that may deteriate the book any further. However, if a family member would like their relatives recipe they can send a request by email and at some point in the future, after receiving several request, will see what she can find.
