Thanks for the plug, Jen!!
A bunch of us got together a while back and submitted the recipes for dishes - all comfort foods - that we had grown up with, or had made for our families when we were all starting out (read dirt poor!!
). I put them together in book form and we sell them to everyone and anyone!!
ALL the proceeds from the book goes to sponsor Chef Scholarships - and we've been able to sponsor one $1,000.00 scholarship with the proceeds of our little book. We are all so proud of it.
Here's an example of one of the recipes - dacook submitted it and I'm sure we've all made it or a variation of it over the years! It's really good.
