Original Post

I'm putting together an Etsy community cookbook, and I'd love to feature YOUR SHOP for FREE!

The cookbook will be divided into the following categories:
- Appetizers & Sides
- Main Courses
- Desserts

I will only take recipes with no major spelling or grammatical errors, and am limiting each section to 20 recipes on a first come, first serve basis. Each Etsian that is featured will receive a FREE pdf ebook version of the cookbook! Hard copies and additional pdf copies will be available for sale at my shop here on Etsy.

Each featured recipe will also contain a small bio of the Etsian that submitted it! I will include a photo, a quote, and your shop address.

All you need to do is convo me with the following information:
- Recipe section your recipe falls into
- Recipe
- Your shop name
- Your real name and location (city and state or country)
- Your quote
- Your photo (can be of you, your pet, etc. as long as it is clean and not offensive)
- A photo of the completed dish

You can keep the rights to your recipe, just as long as you are willing to allow me to sell it in my book. I'm not out to steal anyone's work! I just love to cook, love to eat, and LOVE cookbooks, and thought this would be fun.

I will take one recipe per Etsy shop. After I have received all the submissions, I will create an Etsy Community Cookbook BNR for all participants in this fun project!!!!

So to recap - by sending me a recipe, you will get: FREE SHOP ADVERTISING, FREE PARTICIPATION IN A BNR, AND A FREE PDF COOKBOOK!!!!

Submit yours today!

Who else here on Etsy likes to cook? Anyone have any great promotions they'd like to share?
