The theme of The Sentinel's next cookbook will be "Bridal and Baby Shower Cookbook," featuring your great ideas for fun and food in several categories:
For the cookbook, please tell us about your shower - the one you hosted or the one someone special held for you. What was the theme? What were the decoration like? What was on the menu? What activities did you have? What ideas for planning can you share with others?
And be sure to send some pictures, too. We know you took some!
The cookbook will be published on May 21, and the deadline for submitting your recipes is May 5.
As usual, one recipe will be randomly selected from each of the four categories to win $50 cash prizes from The Sentinel.
Here are some guidelines for submitting recipes:
You may enter any and all categories, but please limit the number of recipes you send to three per category. If you send more, three will be selected to use in the cookbook and the rest will be used only as space allows.
You may use the entry form printed on the Food page or you may use other pieces of paper. Please type or neatly print your recipes. For emailed recipes, please spell out fractions (such as, one-third, rather than 1/3).
Try to avoid using brand names unless it is crucial to use a particular brand.
Submit entries any time before May 5 to allow time for typesetting before the cookbook is published.
