You all know I love to cook. And that I have a son who attends a special needs preschool. I’m hoping that you guys can help me out with both, sorta.
The former PTO president and treasurer, along with some other parents in the area, have started a new foundation for parents of special needs children from age 3 to 21. The school district does a pretty good job of providing the in school support, but this foundation focuses on all those hours outside school – helping parents navigate the system(s); providing recommendations for pediatricians, therapists, haircuts and the like from providers who do well with particular needs; setting up older and younger families to mentor each other; and more.
This foundation is just starting up and doesn’t have much money raised yet. To this end, they’re doing a few things (including a Guitar Hero tournament if you live near Chicago and want to play!). Where I’m asking for your help is with a cook book that the foundation will be selling later this fall.
They are searching high and low for good recipes to make into a cook book. I know everyone has that one recipe you use as your “go to” recipe when you need to make something for a party or special guests. Right now, we have 96 recipes, and we’re looking to get over 700.
If you have a recipe that you’d be willing to share for this venture, please email me or post it in the comments below (I will be sure that it is properly attributed — by which I mean the recipe will say that you are the author; if you can email me your first and last name, that would be great!). I have several that I’m going to put in, and I’ll make sure I post those here, too, for you to (I hope!) enjoy.
And if you are interested in purchasing any once we get them published, let me know and I’ll arrange it. I don’t know yet when they’ll start taking orders or the exact cost, but I’d guess that it will be well under $20 — I’ll update when I know more. If you know other bloggers who are good cooks, feel free to send them my way to contribute their recipes, too!
Thanks everyone. You have no idea how much this foundation means to the parents in our area!
