We're down to the final hours for this campaign and I need your support everyone. I have even just added a new pledge level at $125 where you will get a paperback copy of the book and a 1-hour Skype session where I help you prepare dishes from the book. Please like this page and share it with everyone you know!

In honor of Black Friday and the final weekend of Men Cook Too on Kickstarter, I have reduced the prices of many items including the Skype pledge level. Happy holidays and let's get this book funded!

This full color cookbook is perfect for any kitchen. When it comes to men trying to cook, they don't need to set up their station at the grill anymore, especially after reading through this book. Of course, the men can still control the grill, but they will have the ability to do so much more. With this full color cookbook called Men Cook Too - Easy to follow Recipes for Men, you will be able to make any of several amazing breakfast, lunch or dinner dishes that will leave your significant other wanting more. We will also cover finger foods and special cocktails that allow women to rest easy knowing their man can help them out in the kitchen.

The idea for this cookbook came from just sitting around after I made one of the dinner recipes in the book and realizing that something like this was needed. When it comes to trying to find easy to follow recipes for men to complete, it is usually easier said than done. The recipes you find online and in other cookbooks are often too difficult to follow for the novice chef and as you read them, you can often be left intimidated with what you saw. With this cookbook, all the instructions are written out in a easy to read format meant for those who don't have a lot of experience in the kitchen.

Among the different recipes featured in the book are:

Baked Stuffed Shells with Spinach, Ground Beef and Ricotta Cheese

With each recipe will come a story of where the dish came from, what other food and/or drink it goes with and how to properly cook it from start to finish. For men that are worried about following recipes found in a magazine, this book is all you need to come up with dinner ideas and follow through on them.

The $3,000 goal I came up with for this project includes the editing, layout, production and shipment of the first batch of books from my publishing source. If the support for the book reaches other levels, I will begin to seek out other stretch goals for my supporters. As of now, we have 15 pledge levels and different rewards ranging from Men Cook Too customized stemless wine glasses and corkscrews to getting your favorite recipe in the book to even welcoming me into your home to make a delicious meal for your family.

To all my backers, after you pledge, please follow us on Facebook and check out my website. I would love the chance to thank you on these websites as well.

Risks and challenges

Obviously, I would love to be able to fund this book and allow the masses to enjoy the dozens of recipes I have compiled. If the book isn't funded, it isn't going to stop me from cooking and making new creations in my kitchen, but the support of everyone on Kickstarter is something I am hoping to get for this project.

I was hoping to have this Kickstarter completed and have the book professionally worked on and shipped out to those who pledged before Christmas, but the time constraint is too tight at this point to be able to guarantee these orders in time. There is a chance initial orders can arrive at your door in time for the holidays, but most likely, January 2014 will be the delivery time for most of you that pledged.
