Ready, set, get cooking for T-J cookbook


The Times-Journal wants the best from your kitchen.
The T-J is preparing the 25th edition of "Hometown Cooking" that will feature recipes from readers when it's published in November.
A flyer in this week's paper asks readers to submit recipes for the special edition.
"We like this project as much as any that we print," said Publisher Jim Poole.
"It's always interesting to see what readers send in--old favorites or heirloom recipes."
Recipes can include appetizers, drinks and punches, breads, soups, casseroles, quiches, meats, an fish, game, vegetables, side dishes, desserts and more.
Although "Hometown Cooking" comes out right before the holidays, recipes needn't focus on holiday cooking alone--summer recipes are welcome, too.
Recipes must be in the T-J office by October 21.
One restriction is that readers may submit only three recipes, and they should be in different categories.
The flyer asks for a list of ingredients and instructions, and the recipes must be easy to read.
Readers should also include a phone number, which won't be published, in case there are questions.
The flyer is also on the Times-Journal website,
