I encourage you to read on, start digging through those recipes, and send them on to us! For more information, read Susan's original post below or click on over to The Book Chook and see the original for yourself!
Are you in? After my post about eating our way to literacy, and the dummy cook book cover I made, Eva M from Eva's Book Addiction commented, "Great idea! And with a cool rhyming title like 'Book Chook Cook Book' I absolutely think you should get a cookbook published!" Thus a challenge was born. I have always been one for a challenge. And before I got cold feet, Tif from TifTalksBooks jumped in, full of enthusiasm, and even said she would help! How about you? Like to be a part of the Book Chook Cook Book?
Here is what I would love you to do: sometime in the next two weeks, send me one recipe that is quick and easy to make, so it gives you more time to spend reading, writing or creating. Let's try for some conformity and start with ingredients, then go on to method. Along with that recipe, I want your favourite quote about literacy or creativity, your name (can be just a christian name or screen name if you prefer), your blog name and url if you want me to link to you.
It would make life easier if you emailed the recipe and details requested above as an attachment in Word or Rtf, and put Book Chook Cook Book in the subject line of your email. You can email me via the Contact Me tab up near my blog banner.
Tif had a great idea. She suggested the recipes be ones we use when we cook with our kids: "I was thinking it would be great to even include recipes that are fun to make with your kids ... ones with few ingredients and easy directions. I've got some great recipes I've collected through the years from very, very simple to those a little more complex that I've done with my kids!! This could be really fun and a big hit!!" Since not all of us have young kids, I thought I might make that a special section in the Book Chook Cook Book - Cooking with Kids. If you'd like to contribute to this section, email Tif : tiftalksbooks at gmail dot com
The book will be a digital one, a pdf a bit like Literacy Lava. Be aware that your submission may need to be edited by Tif or I due to the constraints of publishing.
So, what do you say? Are you in?
