4-H Family Favorites Cookbook makes great gift

Wednesday, December 8, 2010

Need a gift or stocking stuffer for someone who likes to cook, collects cookbooks, or is a former 4-H'er?

Looking for some new recipes for the holidays like Jan Pingel's White Fudge, Val Cedar's Microwave Peanut Brittle, or Sandy Peters' Pecan Surprise Bars? Or, do you just want to add some great recipes to your own collection?

The '4-H Family Favorites Cookbook' is an attractive keepsake cookbook, filled with almost 400 tried -- and - true recipes submitted by Cherokee County 4-H'ers, leaders, alumni, and family members. Recipes include the donor's name, plus a contributor's index is located in the back of the cookbook to help you find the recipes of family and friends. Each divider features a different Cherokee County 4-H Club, along with helpful cooking hints.

Cost of the cookbook is $12. Copies are available for purchase at the Cherokee County Extension Office, the two Farm Bureau Financial Services locations in Cherokee, Shear Stylist, Schoon Construction, the Aurelia Star, and O'Haira's in Marcus.

All proceeds from the sale of the cookbook will go toward the 4-H Facilities Betterment Project at the Cherokee County Fairgrounds. While the shell of the new 4-H Expo Building has been completed, additional funds are still needed to complete the electrical, plumbing, and interior fixtures of the building, as well as to continue improvements to the existing cattle barn.

Donations are still being accepted and can be mailed to 4-H Facilities Betterment Project, P. O. Box 43, Cherokee, IA 51012 or dropped off at the Cherokee County Extension Office. Grain Bank donations are still being accepted at local elevators as well.
