Herald Press comes knocking!

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving Monday!
Here at Mennonite Girls Can Cook we are thanking God for the food we have. .
the privilege of friendships we share . .
and now we are thanking God for the blessing of a book contract.
So many of you have requested that we make a book and we are happy to announce that the project is well underway.


They wondered if we had ever considered writing a cookbook.
OH ..yes . .we had.
When we began the blog we decided that it would be a publisher contacting us instead of us finding them.
We knew that in due time.  .
it would happen.. .
and it did.

Conference telephone calls with the Publisher. .
many many emails between the "girls". .
and the project which we have been working on behind the scenes began.


Our spring and summer flew by.
We selected recipes. .
we baked and tweaked and cooked . . .
 and enlisted our friends and family to help us eat our test products.


We developed concepts of colors and decided on a theme.
We watched the weather for perfect photography skies.


And then.  .
we planned a party to sign our contract.
On September 1st with our photographer to witness the event. .
we all signed our names on the book contract with the publisher.

After the contract was signed we enjoyed a photography session as a group for the cookbook and spent the day celebrating.


Our efforts are now safely in the hands of capable editors and design teams.


It is a joy to be able to have a purpose that is greater than ourselves.
Our dream to feed some hungry children with the proceeds will be realized.


We humbly thank each of you for your generous encouragement.
Your comments and emails are valued and appreciated so much.


Herald Press has an offer for those of you who love to shop ahead.

We are delighted to have you along for the journey.
All of you who are kind enough to comment and share our excitement  on this post ..
 will have your name put in the teapot. . and one week from today we will do a draw. .
for a complimentary copy of the book when it is released in Spring 2011.


Many thanks to our Photographer for today's photos.

  50. Congratulations on the cookbook. Your post is a daily read. As my husband doesn't share my Mennonite heritage and I no longer live in a Mennonite setting you have become my bridge to the past. How better than to remember with foods like I had as a child and thus evoking memories of my home, my Grandmother and a particular aunt who was the best baker in the world.

    ReplyDelete

  129. When I first saw the Mennonite Girls Can Cook website, I wondered if there would be a book. Later, while making the recipes, I dreamed there would be a book. Then, when searching for recipes without the use of a computer, I prayed for a book.

    YEAH... my prayers have been answered and I thank all the girls for their hard work producing this wonderful website and now the book.

    Thanks ladies.

  161. I have the old Mennonite cookbook from my mom and several other Mennonite ones as well. I've used several of your recipes and am looking forward to this cookbook!

  168. That is so exciting and I can't wait to see the results and have all the recipes bound whenever I need one. I hope the book will also include some of the best "Bread for the Journey" thoughts.

  169. Oh, I am so excited, I am a late comer to your great blog. But just wanted to thank you for helping me become a better mother, and cook for my little family. May God bless you in this new endeavour.

  170. This is great news. I cook for 3 men every day and the question at the table whenever something new shows up is: " Is this from the Mennonite Girls?" I will definitely give the book as a gift, and encourage others to pick it up. Helping to feed the hungry in the world is high on my priority list. God bless your efforts.
