Calling All Cooks...Recipes Needed!

Do you like to cook? Do you have a favorite family recipe or two? Then we could use your help! We are going to publish the "Forever Family Cookbook" as an adoption fundraiser. I need at least 250 different recipes from at least 150 different individuals, so...please pass the word to families, friends, Sunday School classes, women's groups, etc., etc.! I would love to receive recipes from around the fact, it would be really neat for people to submit favorite family recipes that highlight their family's heritage. You can send recipes to me via e-mail at, or, you can click here for a .pdf file that you can print, fill in, and send to Terri Fisher, PO Box 146, Jonestown, PA 17038. Please include your name and, if you know it, the "heritage" of the recipe (english, german, chilean, etc.) so that they can be included in the cookbook. Feel free to print several forms and pass them to friends and family, and if you have a blog, please help us get the word out...we need all the recipes we can get! Recipes can be for anything edible, so pull out those recipe boxes, old cookbooks, and tattered pieces of paper, and get typing...or we can bring Sophia home! (And stay tuned to our blog to learn how you can order a cookbook soon!)

Hi Terri,

It's a beautiful thing that you're doing -- adopting Sophia from China. Several of my friends have done this and received so much joy and love in return. My parents adopted two children from Korea. I have a cooking blog so I'll pass your message along and I'll send you a recipe.

Hi Terri,
I will have to go through my recipes and find one for the book, lately cooking has been put on the back burner as I have been so busy.
Thank you for your nice comments on my blog, I so look forward to reading them.

I'm on it Terri!! (I'll put that high on the priority list!). I'll post about it too and add the link over so hopefully we can get more contributions! (I know a good designer if you need one, too, ;)

Hi Terri,

I just emailed you a recipe for your cookbook and got a failed delivery notice. Is there another email I could send it to?

Terri Fisher said...

I have changed the e-mail link to be my regular e-mail address. That should work...I was trying to have a dedicated account for this, but it's too much hassle! Thanks, Gloria, for making me aware of the problem!

Hello Terri. My name is Teresa and I'm called Teri as well. What a blessing to be adopting a child from China. My brother did this 10 years ago and our beautiful Malia is 11 years old now. She's such a precious child. Bless you and be looking for a recipe from me.
