Celebrating the Promise

Order the cookbook here.

Tonight I brought a friend home from work.

Being an editor has its perks. Today, I was sent home with a bright pink limited edition Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook to review for a current project. That’s right. 656 pages of Paula Deen, et. al goodness. Right there on the third page Paula listed her personal chicken pot pie recipe and I wondered if I should be paying my employer for the chance to do my job.

Right now, this cookbook is a dear, dear friend.

Anyway. It didn’t take me long to flip through the pages of this book to arrive at this sobering statistic: Nearly 200,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Standard screening tests are the best way for women to detect when it’s most treatable.
Two things instantly came to mind:

1. It’s easier to catch than correct. Early prevention–if possible–is the key. Vigilance is paramount.
2. Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a battle–John Watson.

I have never seen so many helpful kitchen and health-related hints interwoven with delicious recipes in all my life. I encourage you to check out this tome of genius ASAP.
