The Signal Mountain Sports Boosters is looking for recipes from the Eagle family and fans for a cookbook.
The cookbook will include photos of Eagles sports and maybe artwork by local art students on divider pages, according to Event Coordinator Julie Novak.
“We’re viewing the cookbook as a keepsake as well as a fundraiser,” Ms. Novak said.
Boosters member Arlina Hensley saw a similar cookbook produced by another organization and showed it to others, who agreed it would be a fun project without much risk up front.
At least 200 recipes are needed for the cookbook to be printed but Ms. Novak hopes for even more.
"I think with more, the more meaningful the cookbook will be,” she said.
Ms. Novak hopes to get recipes from SMMHS coaches, teachers and faculty as well as community cooks who may not have current students at the school. Local restaurants may even submit an entry, she said, and hopes they will also consider buying an ad in the cookbook.
Ms. Novak believes the cookbook will be popular even though it’s easy with today’s technology of looking up a recipe online on a computer or smartphone.
“There’s something still very comforting about pulling a cookbook off the shelf,” she said, “finding a recipe and knowing a friend has tried and tested it already.”
To submit the recipe, go to www.typensave.com to create an account, enter SMMHS Cooks for the User Name and SMMHS as the password, select a category to type a recipe and click Submit.
Categories may change as recipes are submitted. If you can’t find one for your recipe, throw it into “This ‘n That” and organizers will review for a better placement later. There are no limit on entries.
Ms. Novak encourages people to share their favorite smoothie or pre-game power meal and even “recipes you can make with your kids.”
Recipes are due by Sept. 30 so the cookbook can be printed and available for sale before Thanksgiving. It will sell for $20 to $25 each.
