Calling All Cooks!

Do you love to cook? Do you love the thrill of creating something new in the kitchen? Do you love the aromas wafting through your house, that moment when it's time to taste and see how it all came together? Then you and I must have a chat ...

I'm currently working on Drop-dead Delicious: Recipes from the Secret Sisters Mysteries, which will be released next summer. A cookbook author needs a lot of help to prepare recipes for publication - I did Bless Your Heart by myself, only sending out a few recipes for testing, and it was really difficult. It's so much easier to create when you have a test kitchen of helpers to share their experiences with the recipe, and to be that second set of eyes ... er, second set of measuring spoons ...

What I Need:

I need roughly eight to ten people who love to cook and who will take the recipes I send them, test them out, and send me their thoughts on the ease of preparation, the clarity of the instructions, how the food turned out, etc. Each tester will make around ten recipes. I will send them out one at a time, and the tester will return their thoughts to me within a week's time. I will then send out the next recipe.

What You Will Receive:

The thanks of a grateful nation. Well, okay, maybe not, but the nation is full of people who need to eat ...

You will receive a free copy of the cookbook when it is completed, and you will be thanked in the acknowledgments. You'll also have the fun of trying out new recipes and knowing that your input will make all the difference in the final product.

If you are interested, please send me an e-mail.

*Many of the recipes in this book contain dairy, wheat, or nuts. If you are sensitive to these foods, I would recommend that you pass on this opportunity, but thank you!

*I need testers who can commit to ten recipes. Please contact me only if you're able to make this kind of commitment.

I'd like to help, and in my glory days I was called a good cook, so I do know my way around the kitchen. However, I have several unfortunate strikes against me. You know how some people regard the ten commandments as the ten suggestions? I'm like that with when I cook. I follow a recipe to a certain extent but then I start getting creative--the fewer the ingredients the better I am. So if you need someone who doesn't like fish or seafood of any kind, spicy hot food, liver or other organ meats, eggplant or avocado, well, I guess you could put me at the bottom of your list.

I would do it Tristi, but--If you can believe it, I can't!--I"m still not eating fat, sugar, chocolate, oil--it's been 21 days now!! And, I'm eating very little meat (a bite here and there because I'm still putting bits of meat in dishes for the fam, and I am eating some cheese and yogurt (didn't eat the freshly made rice krispy treats at church last night that called out to me, but had blackberries and yogurt when I got home...was YUM). Sorry I can't help..wish I could, but I'm looking forward to reading SS!!

If you don't have enough people already, put me down as a test cook. :)
