Bay Leaf Baptist

Church Cookbook

This cookbook is being organized by members of Kindred Hearts and the Ruth Sunday School class.

Bay Leaf Baptist Church is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from our members. These cookbooks will be professionally published and are sure to be a treasured keepsake for us all.

Money raised will go toward our Multiply Generosity Initiative.

Please submit 3-5 of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our cookbook. Many recipes from all members will ensure that our cookbook is a success.

There are three ways you can submit recipes:

1. Type your recipe directly into the Morris Press Cookbooks website. The instructions are below.

2. Write your recipe on a printed form (which you can pick up at the Welcome Center) in the space provided. One recipe per form.

3. Attach a copy of your recipe to the Recipe Submission Form and turn it in. One recipe per form.

All recipe submissions may be placed in the Welcome Center drop-box or dropped off at the church office.

If duplicate recipes are received, the first recipe submitted will be selected. The person submitting the duplicate recipe will be contacted and given the opportunity to submit another recipe.

We anticipate a great demand for our cookbooks, and we want to be certain to order enough. We estimate these cookbooks to cost $25 or under.

To reserve your copies, email the cookbook committee at with the number of cookbooks you will be purchasing.

Please submit your recipes online by May 31, 2024 so we can meet our deadline.

Thank you!

  • 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.”

  • 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.
