After months of collaboration, editing, and designing, it’s finally time to reveal a very special project – the “50+ Top Blogs’ All Time Favorite Recipes” cookbook! You may have seen a sneak peek of the recipe book on How Does She last month. Well, now until the end of August, it’s available for purchase. Though really, it’s not a purchase – it’s a donation!

100% of your donation will go to the American Red Cross to help the many people who have been affected by recent natural disasters around the world.

After seeing the devastation in Japan due to the tsunami, this cookbook all started with a simple idea – what if top blogs teamed together to make a difference? That idea grew quickly as over 50 bloggers donated their favorite recipes and beautiful photographs to the book, and, somewhere along the line, I was asked to contribute the design (talk about an honor!). So I can tell you, having spent a lot of time with this cookbook, that it’s a good one. You’ll LOVE these recipes! Everyone has worked really hard to make something wonderful for you to enjoy. Now, it’s in your hands to make a difference!

Please help by purchasing a copy of the cookbook by August 31.

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. Pretty sweet.

And (this is really exciting!) thanks to a truly generous donation by Paper Coterie, a high-quality hard cover cookbook is also available for only $10 plus shipping! (Shipping will be $4 or more depending on where you live and how many copies you buy. You might want to stock up on a couple of extras for the holidays – just sayin’!) : )

Please help by sharing the news.
