On Sunday, June 8th, 2008 NSTAR hosted the Walk for Children’s Hospital Boston. 288 teams full of thousands of patients, friends, families, community members, doctors, and nurses signed on to participate in the event. At the walk, the CYWH’s own Dennisse, Paoli, Kristen, and Adrianne staffed a table promoting the Center and the release of the 2nd edition of our cookbook “Quick and Easy Recipes for Teens.” The table was chock-full of handouts including the spring/summer edition of our Teen Talk newsletter, youngmenshealthsite.org postcards, youth advisor applications, and of course lots of information about the cookbook! Even though it was a sweltering day, we had lots of visits from walk participants, and a very special visit from Mayor Menino!

The new and improved 2nd edition of our cookbook comes complete with:

  • Over 120 quick and easy recipes for the beginner cook
  • Nutrition Facts labels for every recipe (analyzed by our team of expert nutritionists)
  • Cooking tips and health guides
  • Tons of vegetarian and ethnic recipes
  • Fun icons that identify foods high in important nutrients

Happy Cooking!
