WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Dinah Reece loves to cook. She also loves to help Ronald McDonald House.

Reece, a retired teacher who lives in Pfafftown, is combining both loves in “Cooking with Love: For the House That Love Built” a cookbook containing a lifetime of recipes that she has self-published.

Reece and her husband, John, paid for the printing costs, and all of the proceeds will go to Ronald McDonald House to help it provide a home for families with children in local hospitals.

“I’ve always wanted to publish a cookbook,” Reece said. “And I wanted to raise more money for the house. So I thought I would combine the two things.”

Readers of the Winston-Salem Journal may recognize Reece’s name – or her recipes. She has been featured several times after winning food contests at the Dixie Classic Fair.
