MNA Region 5 cookbook in the works

MNA Region 5 is in the beginning stages of planning a member-generated cookbook. Proceeds from sales will benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank. Our goal is to have printed cookbooks ready for purchase next fall, at the 2011 MNA Convention. These fundraising cookbooks will be great additions to your own cooking library and great items for holiday gift giving.

Now is the time of year that we are reaching for our favorite recipes and turning on our ovens and crockpots more. As you prepare family meals, sweet treats and dishes for the holidays, please keep in mind that we would love to have your best recipes—those that everyone always wants to copy.
