“Cooking with Cantius”


Biretta Books is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from the parishioners and friends of St. John Cantius to celebrate the 125th Anniversary of our parish (1893-2018). “Cooking with Cantius” will be a treasured keepsake for us all.

Parishioners and friends of St. John Cantius Parish may submit 3-5 of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our cookbook. Many recipes from each family will ensure that our cookbook is a success. We are using Morris Press Cookbook’s web site to easily submit recipes online. If you do not have Internet access, our committee can enter them for you. Read more below about how to submit your best recipes!

Deadline for Submitting Recipes

Please submit your recipes online by AUGUST 15, 2018, so that we can meet our deadline.

Recipe Writing Tips

Things to keep in mind…

·    When adding recipes, review the “Tips” and use standard abbreviations.
·    Only enter 1 ingredient per ingredient line.
·    List ingredients in order of use in the ingredients list and directions.
·    Include container sizes, e.g., (16-oz.) pkg., (24-oz.) can.
·    Write directions in paragraph form, not in steps.
·    Use names of ingredients in the directions, e.g., “Combine flour and sugar.”  DO NOT use statements like, “Combine first three ingredients.”
·    Include temperatures and cooking, chilling, baking, and/or freezing times.
·    Additional comments about the recipe (history, nutritional data, suggested uses, etc.) are not allowed unless a “Recipe Note” field is visible. Enter extra recipe content in that field.
