New cookbook to be available for purchase through Areawide Media

Friday, October 3, 2008

American Profile magazine, your trusted source for the best in true hometown recipes, has just released their newest cookbook - Hometown Get-Togethers.

American Profile focuses on what makes the hometowns of America great: a sense of community. It's all about ordinary people who are doing extraordinary things, and Hometown Get-Togethers (published by William Morrow) captures the essence of America through the dishes that we serve at our favorite community gatherings.

In recognizing that relationships center around food and the experiences shared while eating it, American Profile, with editors Candace Floyd and Jill Melton, has created another cookbook that's a compilation of reader-submitted recipes from its number one most popular section in the magazine. This is the ultimate family cookbook with great dishes, such as:

* A way to spice up breakfast from Pennsylvania: Orange Juice French Toast

* An Ohioan's sugary adaptation of an old favorite: Sweet Cinnamon Chips w/ Fruit Salsa

* An Oklahoman's not-so-ordinary bread: Monkey Bread

* A yummy concoction to keep you warm from Oregon: Cheeseburger Soup

* A new spin on a lunch salad from Ohio: Pasta Pizza Salad

* A down-home take on a tasty side dish from Vermont: Homesteaders' Four-Bean Casserole

* A yummy version of Grandma's meat loaf from Missouri: Little Cheddar Meat Loaves

* A Minnesotan's flavor-infused dessert option: Honey-Spiced Chai Bundt Cake

Featuring more than 150 recipes (each complemented by the reason that it is special for the contributing cook) and two 16 page color inserts, this cookbook features recipes that reflect everyday American life -- from church suppers and family reunions to tailgating and picnics.

Hometown Get-Togethers has just the right dish to share with loved ones. This is a timeless cookbook for every American -- from one of the most popular magazines in the country.

Candace Floyd assumes dual roles as food editor of both Relish and American Profile magazines. She co-edited the American Profile Hometown Cookbook, published by Rutledge Hill Press in 2006. Jill Melton, a registered dietitian, chef, and author, came to Relish, the sister publication to American Profile magazine, with more than 20 years of experience in food writing, editing and recipe development.

Hometown Get-Togethers will be available for purchase soon at the offices of Areawide Media.
