You can help Malden High School students by sharing your holiday recipes for a new cookbook being created by the MHS Alumni Association.
“It’s holiday time so you probably have a recipe book or two on your kitchen counter,” said Diane Lind, who is leading the effort to gather tasty dishes for the MHSAA cookbook.
“So don’t put those books away until you send us a copy of each favorite,” said Lind, a member of the MHSAA executive board. She said contributors should include their names and year of graduation, if applicable.
Lind and board members Joanne Iovino and Patty Kelly will be putting the cookbook together over the coming year with plans to have it available for sale by next fall’s annual Homecoming event.
She said the inspiration for the book came from Iovino, and that recipe photos would help make the book a best seller, with the money raised used to benefit students.
“I’m already drooling over Paula’s Irish bread and Aunt Edith’s baked cheese fondue submitted by Bette Anne Farmer, and chocolate ambrosia from Patty Kelly that sounds sinful and easy,” Lind said.
To help with the fund raiser, she said, “All you have to do is submit one or more favorites that you make during the holidays or something simple but good that you whip up on ordinary days.
“We are looking for main dishes, side dishes, appetizers and desserts,” she said, adding even if the personal favorite is a Lean Cuisine from the microwave with a side of frozen peas.
“I can’t wait to see my inbox filled with recipes,” Lind said.
