>I am compiling a community cookbook of recipes from residents and businesses of Craven County. My plan is to have it available for purchase in 2012. It will be titled Craven Chocolate S’more with proceeds benefitting the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life. There are 1000 copies of 2010’s Craven Chocolate in print. I expect this sequel to be as popular.

Businesses, churches, and civic groups that contribute recipes will receive as compensation the advertisement of their organizations within the cookbook. There will be no further compensation.

Individuals will receive no compensation beyond printed recognition within the cookbook.

Recipes that are tried and true favorites and that require chocolate in some form will be accepted. I also am asking for recipes that will not duplicate those found in Craven Chocolate.

If you would like to send one or more recipes for inclusion in Craven Chocolate S’more, please e-mail: smawtalk@gmail.com or mail the recipe(s) by August 10, 2011 with your contact information to Cookbook, P.O. Box 14865, New Bern, NC 28561.

Please share this announcement with your friends, relatives, neighbors, churches, and organizations to which you belong. I would love to have wide representation from Craven County. Craven Chocolate was printed in 2010 during New Bern’s 300th celebration. 2012 is Craven County’s 300th. I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks so very much for your participation. – Mary
