It's not likely to make the New York Times' bestseller list, but the UT Agricultural Extension Office in Marshall County has so far printed 750 copies of the new 4-H Cookbook.

"We may have to make more," said Trent Jones, the Youth Development Agent.

The cookbook was the idea of his co-worker, Sondra Apple, the Family Consumer Sciences Agent. The idea was announced to the students at their November 4-H meetings and the recipes poured in to the Extension office, where secretary Sheila Hobby was enlisted to type them up and design the pages.

The Extension office already had the machine that punches the rectangular holes and inserts the plastic spiral binding, so apart from the cost of materials, all of the $5 cost of the cookbook goes towards the 4-H programs in Marshall County.
