I had a lovely visit with a new client today. She brought me plenty of work to keep me busy for a few days and presented me with this cookbook as a gift before she left. For those of you who regularly read my blog know that I am an avid volunteer worker and one of my benefactors is the Ronald McDonald House Charities! I work alongside of the many quilters from the HGTV Quilting and Needlework Forum making quilts for children and also for raffles that I host directly on the forum.
So it was like a full circle come back to me when I looked at the cookbook title and saw it was put out by RMH! Don't you just love it when things like this catch you unaware. This lady did not know I have ran 3 raffles to benefit this awesome organization so it was extra sweet that this is what I received from her.
I have been coordinating fundraisers with the quilters since 2005 but over the past 3 years the HGTV Quilters and I, along with lots of our non-forum friends, have raised a total of $10,052.00 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities alone!
This past September saw our 7th raffle to date and we plan on many more to come! :)
The first page that fell open when I went to look through the cookbook had a recipe for a Pineapple Cheeseball! I have been searching for this recipe for a long time! I went to a baby shower several years ago and they served one of these. The grandmother wrote down the recipe for me but I lost it. I am so glad it is in this book!!! I will let you know how it is when I make it! :)
