50+ Bloggers, 50+ Favorite Recipes

I have a secret. It probably wasn’t supposed to be a secret, but life got in the way and I never had a chance to spill the beans (spill the beans…just a little food blog humor for your Monday morning). This secret is one that I’d like you to share with, well, every single person you know. Feel free to share with people that you don’t know as well! Just spread the word, y’all!

Oh, the secret? You mean you actually want to know what I’m talking about?

Whatev. I guess I’ll tell you.

I, uh, am in a book. A BOOK, y’all. One with a hard cover and everything. But the best part about this book is that all the proceeds, every last little bit, goes to the Red Cross. I mean, I don’t know if you’ve noticed or anything, but things have been cuh-razy up in here over the last year. Earthquakes and tsunamis and, well, just natural disaster after natural disaster. I’m beyond excited to be a part of something that will be helping those affected by these natural disasters!

The book I am talking about is a cookbook with favorite recipes from 50+ bloggers! You know what this means, right? It means this is going to be one ridiculously yummy cookbook.

After seeing the devastation in Japan, several amazing blogs teamed together wanting to somehow make a difference. More than 50 blogs donated one of their favorite recipes to be compiled into an incredible cookbook designed by chickabug (design talent was 100% donated as well). Basically a lot of people worked really hard to make something extraordinary. Now, it’s in your hands to make a difference.

This one-of-a-kind cookbook was originally only going to be offered as an E-book for a $10 donation. Now it’s also available as a hardback book thanks to our favorite publisher, Paper Coterie, who was willing to donate 100% of the supplies, and 100% of the cost of printing for this amazing cause.

The E-book is for sale here for a $10 donation. If you have a computer in your kitchen or an electronic reader, (ipad, kindle,etc.) this is the copy for you. You can just click on the recipe you want from the table of contents and it will take you right there. It’s sweet.

The hard cover cookbook is also available, (wait for it…) for only $10.

You will be amazed at the quality of this book. The only extra expense you will have will be for shipping ($4 or more depending on where you live and how many copies you order).

Thank you, thank you, thank you. You can smile knowing you made a difference to someone, somewhere. And you can smile because you will have a beautiful full color recipe book with gorgeous pictures and delicious recipes to try. We truly hope you love the cookbook. We think you will. You might just want to buy one for your mom, sister, and mother-in-law for Christmas.

Please share this post with your friends and family on your blog, facebook, and twitter. Let’s make this go VIRAL! How cool would that be?

    I have a quick question: I tried to click through to get the hardcover copy, and it’s not letting me order it. I’m not sure why not…any ideas?

    I just bought a hardcover version and I’m really excited! Just as a note, when I went to buy mine it was actually $15 + shipping, so my total was $25. But as long as all $15 is going to the Red Cross, that’s totally fine!
