Recipes are Needed for Jackson County 4-H Cookbook!

As one of our fundraisers, 4-H Parents and Leaders Board will be creating and selling a cookbook! The cookbook will be a professionally printed soft cover/spiral bound book.

That’s where you come in – current 4-H Members, alumni and their family will contribute all of the recipes!  We need every family to contribute ONE recipe to make this cook book amazing!

We are looking at an August deadline to have production completed in time for December delivery. Not all recipes will be used (there will surely be repeats), so if there is something special you want included (Best of Show at Fair or Great Grandma’s Banana Bread), please indicate that when you submit your recipes and we will do our best. Please submit recipes via email to or drop them off at the extension off labeled “cookbook.”

  • Instructions on what is needed to submit a recipe found HERE
  • Recipe form to fill out found HERE

Volunteers will be typing the recipes in the proper format to reduce the overall cost of the printing. To keep the production price low, recipes MUST have single instructions (e.g. cannot have several parts to them – icing, then filling, then cake instructions – must be written as one process), so please take that into consideration when choosing your recipes.

It is important to do this as soon as possible – if you can, do not wait until August to submit the recipes so the team has time to get them all done! If you cannot submit recipes via email, please use the attached form and submit the recipes on paper on or before August. Please us a format similar to the
hard copy form when providing the typed recipes via email.

We will be taking pre-orders. More information will be sent out later.

If all goes as planned, we will submit the order the end of August and should have the books back just after Thanksgiving, BUT THIS CAN ONLY HAPPEN IF YOU GET YOUR RECIPES IN ON TIME, so please make it happen!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact for more details
