Late in 2008 I received an email from Sara at the blog Whisks and Needles. She recently became a stay at home Mom and needed a little mental stimulation. She put to me an idea she had been working on. Why not turn LiveSTRONG With A Taste Of Yellow into a book? Why not indeed? It was something I'd love to do but didn't have the knowledge or contacts to make it happen. Sara's family have been touched by cancer and she wanted to help raise awareness of cancer issues. With all profits to the Lance Armstrong Foundation I was right behind the idea.
Sara has been in touch with some of the development team at the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and they like the project.
If you have submitted a recipe or picture for the Taste Of Yellow blog events, you will soon be receiving an email from Sara with further information about the project, and formally requesting permission to use your recipe. In order to make sure we do not run foul of copyright laws, we will need express permission to use your recipe or picture. Therefore, if you want you recipe included, you will need to let us know.
If you do not want to wait for an email, you can grant permission for us to use your recipe or picture by emailing Barbara or Sara at email@example.com (you can also email us here if you have any questions or want further information on this project.)
As I may not have all email address' it would really help if you email us rather than wait for an email from Sara. Please take careful note the email address is very similar to the blog event email firstname.lastname@example.org. Just the a is missing.
We would really appreciate if you could mention this on your Facebook or Twitter pages to enable us to reach all participants.
I asked Sara to share a little about herself for those who don't know here and here's what she had to say.
I'm a stay at home mom living with my
husband, our 6-month old son (known in the blogosphere as "the
Munchkin"), and our dog Thea. Between the Munchkin and the dog, I
keep pretty busy, but when I can manage to find the time, I enjoy
knitting, quilting, sewing, reading, puzzles, and of course, cooking
and baking. I love playing around in the kitchen, and I also love how
our CSA has changed the way I cook. I've discovered I like many
things that I thought I hated, and have a good time coming with
different ways to cook the produce we get from the farm each week.
While being a mom leaves me with very little "spare time," I love it,
and I feel very lucky to be able to send so much time with my son,
watching him grown and change every day.
