The latest on the Blogger Aid cookbook

I'm just too excited for words. The BloggerAid Changing the Face of Famine cookbook with my Spinach-Mushroom Lasagna recipe (hint, hint) is in the final stages of development. Right now, we are deciding on a cover and the designs are wonderful. Even though we are donating all the proceeds from the cookbook to the WFP School Lunch Program, that doesn't eliminate printing costs. We can donate the recipes, the editing, the typesetting and such, but we do have to pay for the cost of printing.
The Cookbook People donated some software as a prize and they will donate $20 for each of us BloggerAid CtFF folks who mention The Cookbook People in our blog. If you've ever thought it might be nice to make up a cookbook of the family recipes, check out The Cookbook People. They offer software to create the cookbooks, binders and lovely recipe boxes. I have a dear niece who is forever calling me for a chicken recipe I made up for her a few years ago. Might be a good idea to create a cookbook for her.
By the way, the chicken recipe she keeps forgetting:
Saute chicken breasts in olive oil (may be a mix of olive oil and butter). When the chicken is browned and almost cooked through, add about 2 Tbs. fresh thyme and 1/4 c. decent white wine. When the chicken reaches appropriate doneness on a meat thermometer and the wine has reduced a bit, add 2 Tbs. of cream cheese (or neufachatel for lower calories). Salt and pepper to taste.

My niece has fallen into a habit of making this every time she cooks dinner for a new fellow, so I always know when there is a new semi-serious boyfriend because she calls me for the recipe.
