Not sure what to make for dinner this weekend?
Consider picking up the Yes We Can Cookbook, published by the Framingham Democratic Town Committee. Released in June, the committee compiled the cookbook featuring appetizers, soups, entrees, desserts and more.
State Rep. Tom Sannicandro shared his white chicken recipe, while Gov. Deval Patrick shared his Lemon Chicken recipe.
For dessert, consider State Senator Karen Spilka's cheesecake recipe or U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren's Peach Cobbler recipe.
The cookbook costs $20 and contains recipes from “famous and not so famous” Democrats, said Norma Shulman of Framingham.
Anyone making a $20 donation to the Framingham Democratic Town Committee for the coordinated campaign fund, received the cookbook as a gift. The cookbook is a fundraiser for the Committee.
Other "famous" recipes include Lt. Governor Tim Murray's 'Grandmother W's Irish Soda Bread,' Congressman Edward Markey's Mass-Paragus Soup, Massachusetts treasurer Steve Grossman's Grilled Chicken and Rep. Tom Conroy's Red Thai Curry Chicken. There are several other local and state officials who contributed recipes and one recipe contributed from the Obama White House.
Locals, including School Committee Member Bev Hugo, Betty Muto, Planning Board member Stephanie Mercandetti, Town Meeting member Kathie McCarthy, Selectman Dennis Giombetti, Planning Board Chair Tom Mahoney, Town Meeting member Renee Faubert, Pam Roberts, Library Trustee Ruth Winett, Selectman Jason Smith and Cheryl Tully Stoll and so many others contributed recipes to the cookbook, also.
Cookbooks may be available for purchase tonight at the Concert on the Green but you can also obtain a cookbook via mail.
