ere's the short story. We have the usual problem. We need to raise funds. We need to go outside the membership. Not avalanches of cash, just enough to keep the lights on and pay the Priest.

We also needed to offer something besides the highly anticipated annual dinners of Cabbage Rolls which we offer in the spring, and the Chicken BBQ, which we hold in the fall. As a really small parish in a sparsely populated area of the country, we are just scraping by.

One of the members suggested we put together a cookbook and get donations that way.

Not a bad idea!

The announcement was made and recipes collected. After a ton of work we finally had our cookbook. You can peruse the complete Table of Contents.

There are a total of 353 recipes if we counted them right.

And you know what?

It was good. It sold out. 2 printings. People really liked the blend of Old Country combined with the newer recipes.

When I say "Old Country" I mean old Country as in former eastern block countries....Russia, Yugoslavia, Poland, etc. You see, we are an Eastern Orthodox Church. More specifically Russian.

A lot of the recipes in this book were brought over with our church founders when they immigrated to the states. Most of the current members are descendants of coal miners. These folks emigrated to make a better life for themselves and their families.

Read our HISTORY. Look at a couple of PHOTOS on the official Church Website.

If you haven't figured it out yet, we're asking for donations. In return we will send you a cookbook.

It comes in an ebook (PDF) format. It is pretty much a downloadable electronic version of the printed cookbook.

  • BONUS SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD (Its big - almost 5Mb)

    FOOD FILE - Food File is a free food database and calorie counter for 1000s of food products.

    Kelpiesoft Food File is for anyone who is interested in what they eat, but is particularly useful for those following a diet for health or weight loss reasons. Searching the database is as simple as typing in the food you are looking for - the software will display a list of matching foods as quickly as you type. You can also refine the search by selecting one or more of the 24 food categories.

    Selecting a food displays the proportion of fat, protein and carbohydrate contained as well as total calories and more detailed nutritional information. Also displayed are various 'food facts' that will assist people following diets that restrict certain kind of foods, such as low fat, low carbohydrate (Atkins / South Beach) or low sodium diets.

    The nutritional information was compiled by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Nutrient Data Laboratory. This highly detailed information on the nutritional content of foods is a useful resource for nutritionists and other health care professionals.

We're suggesting a monster donation of $5.

The cabbage roll recipe is worth that on it's own! You get 352 more!
