Deserving Children Charity Cookbook Fundraiser

Our committee is preparing a taste-tempting cookbook featuring favorite recipes from our association members.  Our cookbook will be beautifully illustrated and bound and is sure to be treasured for years.


We would like everyone to submit 3-4 of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our collection.  Follow the instructions below.  Your name will be printed with each of your recipes.


Each cookbook will contain helpful cooking hints, recipe category dividers, a table of contents, an index, and special pages of interest.  The cookbook will be typeset in an easy-to-read format and professionally printed and bound.


Proceeds from our cookbook sales will go directly to the Deserving Children Charity fund.  Your help in contributing recipes will ensure that our cookbook will be a success.    Please submit your recipes as soon as possible.  To make things easy for all, we have included a PDF form for you to complete the information online.  When using this form please make sure to rename the file with your recipe name when downloading and saving.  Then send via email to any of the committee members or to the LPCAR Board Office. 

You may also download the recipe form and print out your recipe.
