Pipkin Sweetgrass writes: I just wanted to let y’all know we have a cookbook in the works for Billy’s Loons Charities. it’s to be called Recipes for Disaster, and the proceeds will be donated to help victims of natural disasters. I’d like the community to send recipes as well. I have an email account set up for just this purpose. It’s recipes_for_disaster@yahoo.com

This way, everyone who wishes to help can do so at no cost, and very little effort. I hope to repeat this project in the future so as to be able to continue lending a hand, so the more recipes, the better! The deadline for this book is July 1st. Pet treats, foods for birds and other wildlife, as well as any other kitchen projects, such as the recipes I have for sidewalk chalk and face paint are also more than welcome. Kid friendly recipes are also good.
