The PMHA Pacific Rim Peewee Tier 3 team was at Cherry Lane mall Saturday, offering free samples of goodies baked using their team cookbook.
The players on the team shared their family favourite recipes and created the Hockey Mom Cookbook.
The cookbook, with more than 100 recipes was borne of a need to add variety to exhausted meal plans, said Sandy Acheson, team manager.
“How we got the idea for a cookbook was after a bunch of us moms chatting and stressing about what to feed everyone because we were all getting tired of the same old,” said Acheson.
“So we decided to share ideas and swap recipes and so the cookbook idea was born.”
The players got behind the project and started collecting favouring family recipes that were quick and easy.
“It was a team effort,” said Acheson.
So far, Acheson said, about 350 cookbooks have been sold and some early reviews have proven to be positive.
“The banana graham muffins are a hit, the chewy power bars too,” said Acheson.
“Also the beef barley soup is popular, the Crockpot lasagna is amazing and easy and Susanne Cote’s bean dip knocks it out of the park at a pot luck.”
The cookbook can be purchased for $10 from firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds go towards the kids on the team.
