Ok folks! We are now going into the season of dusting off old family recipes that only get used this time of the year. We should not be so far from summer, that grilling and other recipes are distant memories. We are putting together a GTT Cookbook! (Thanks to 2LaneCruzer for the idea!) This cookbook will be in a downloadable format. It would be AWESOME to have as many of your favorite recipes submitted, as possible. (And each of you may submit as many recipes as you wish!) If this is your own family recipe, let us know that. If you have a favorite from another cookbook, or website, please let us know where the recipe comes from, so that we do not get into copyright issues. I would also like to include the name of the submitter, so that you (and your family) can receive credit. That is one of the neat things about sharing recipes! Also, any interesting tidbits of info about how the recipe came about, or if it freezes well, etc., will be a plus!
This cookbook will be a combined effort of volunteers, who just happen to like green tractors! I believe it will be broken up into several sections, such as "Appetizers, Main Courses, Side Dishes, Desserts, Breads, and Beverages". This, of course, is predicated on the recipes received, and number in each category. If we get enough involvement, "Main Courses" could be further broken down into "Beef, Chicken, Pork and Vegetarian". Photos of the finished dish will add to the cookbook, but are not required.
What I will need from those submitting recipes, is to have them in an editable format. (Thanks to ddinham for helping with the computer end of things, since I am terribly technologically challenged!)
Also, since this is still in the begiinning stages, if you have ideas on how to make this a great effort and final product, please, feel free to share your ideas. We might even have a photo contest, if we need a cover shot, but right now, all is flexible.
I am hoping for a lot of help and involvement, so that this will be a fabulous cookbook, wearing the GTT name!
