Mastocytosis Research & Awareness Fundraiser

Okay, so I know that I can write novels on here, so I decided to post this one, again so that you don't have to read to the end of a post to see it. ;0)

MastoKids has been compiling a bunch of recipes over the past month or so for a cookbook to raise money and awareness for Mastocytosis research. There is even an allergy section for those of us with kiddos (or even for adults) who suffer from food allergies, but this is not just an allergy cookbook. In fact, there are more recipes for people without allergies than with . . . with several recipes that are gluten, nut/peanut, milk (including casein and whey), soy, egg, bean, fish -free, etc. =0) There are well over 250 recipes in this book (I have no idea how many I submitted, but I submitted several allergy-friendly recipes in there, as well as a few others that I really liked before Isaiah started having allergy issues).

The cookbooks will cost around $12 to $15 dollars (approximately) - there are some special features in the book (including quotes from masto moms and pics of the little ones as well). If you are a member of MastoKids, there is a 25% discount, but chances are that if you are a member of MastoKids, you already knew about the cookbook and have received the e-mails. =0) Anyway, the cookbook will be submitted to the printer/publisher in mid-January, and the books should be ready sometime in February or March. They will make wonderful Valentine's Day gifts . . . or Mother's Day gifts!!! ;0)

Right now, MastoKids is trying to get an estimate on how many people might actually buy the cookbook, so as not to print too many books. If you are interested in purchasing a cookbook, please leave a comment on this post so that I can count you in. You are not obligated or committing to purchase the book at this time - so, no worries if your account is running a little low this month, they're just trying to get an estimate. I know that I am in for one - I'm so interested in seeing all the yummy concoctions in that book that can be altered to suit Isaiah's diet! So, just leave a comment if you're interested!
