Hi Ginny,

I just read your post and am wondering......is there a recipe book available that I could purchase from this website? If so, I would love information on how to obtain this.

We are in the process of compiling a cookbook that will be sold to raise funds for this amazing site. I know it is hard to believe that this costs money, but believe me it does.

Right now we are typing in the recipes that have been sent to us by members and friends of members. All recipes must be entered by 8/30/05, so there is still time to email me or pm any recipe you would like to have included.

Trust me, as soon as the cookbook is available, you will know how to purchase them (you have to buy many to give as gifts etc.)

As I type, I just got a new recipe from a guy in work. I am scouring the countryside.

Please make sure you give your full name (or not) to let us know how you want the recipe listed. For instance it can say "by Andrea" or "by Andrea Scheff" or your user name. Most people are giving first and last names, but not everyone :)

2 cups of Chicken meat cut in cubes-packaged works fine, but not seasoned-get plain

1 cup Seedless green grapes cut lengthwise

3 stalks of celery cut fine

¼ of a white onion cut fine

4 tablespoons of dry dill

1 tsp on Dijon mustard

Helmans Mayo-use no other. @ Tblsp at a time until it’s the consistency you like

Fridge for at least 3 hours before you serve

Doesn’t do well as a sandwich, serve in tomato boats
