Hi Emma,

This idea is actually already being considered. It is good to know there is additional interest! I am sure that a posting will be made after more information is gathered.

I have cookbook that I recieved for Christmas that benefits a National Foundation/Organization. In the back of the cookbook, the publishing company gives instructions on how you can create your own cookbook to benefit your organization. Would this info. be helpful to anyone who is working on this idea? Just let me know - [;)]

That is a good idea, we did an online printable cookbook on another message board I used to visit.

I think a cookbook would be great! It would be a lot of work, but once it's completed, we could sell it for years. I have looked into doing a cookbook for PF. There are a number of companies that specialize in printing fundraising cookbooks. They can take a pile of donated recipes and put together a nice book. The profit margin is pretty good.

I'm ready to join anyone who would like to put one together.

This is a great idea! My MIL's family had a cookbook made up of all the family recipes last year. We all got to submit recipes and a family member had it printed up. It cost us like $7 each to buy one.

Let us know when things get going Jaime!!
