55 Knives

It's the Memorial Day Weekend so you would think I'd be ready to talk about grilling burgers and steaks...

But I'm more excited about this week's release of the e-book, 55 Knives - Recipes, Tips, and Stories from 55 Top Food Bloggers.

I was honestly shocked when I was asked to be a part of this project because the other contributing authors are what I consider some of the finest food bloggers around. They are people I respect for their content, culinary knowledge, skills, and a unique voice. I was a bit nervous but there was no way I was going to turn down an opportunity to be a part of something innovative like this.

55 Knives is the brainchild of Nick Evans from Macheesmo. It is much more than just a cook book of recipes. It brings 55 unique perspectives, tips, recipes, and stories from it's participating bloggers. Because it is an e-book, it is interactive and you have the option to go to hyperlinks for other content by the particular blogger and other information. Having read it the past two days, I found it very entertaining with a personal touch. There is a great article on this project at BlogHer.

The list price is $19 but between now and next Thursday, you can get 55 Knives at the introductory price of $14. You can order it by clicking on the links. Yes, as a contributing author, I get a piece of affiliate sales, but I am donating any of those earnings to someone who selflessly does a BBQ service once a month for local people who are homeless. It won't be much but every bit helps.

So please click on the link and check out 55 Knives.

Since I didn't post any recipes, click on over to Our Krazy Kitchen for my Fire Day Friday post about grilled stuffed fajita chicken burritos.

Have a great weekend all!
