COLUMBUS — Tasty Toppings Inc. just released its first-ever cookbook for Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing, but the company won't see a penny from sales.

More than 1,000 cookbooks were released last week, packed with 197 dip, sauce, appetizer, main dish and dessert recipes sent in by families across the United States.

Tasting Toppings President Kim Bean said the mail started pouring in after she announced in March the company would like lovers of the Duncan-made dressing to send in their favorite recipes to benefit the Team Jack Foundation, which raises money for pediatric brain cancer research.

“The project is filled with love,” Bean said. “All these recipes were submitted by customers who cared enough to write a letter and send a recipe. That’s cool, we really do have the best customers.”

Bean said Tasty Toppings has partnered with Team Jack on fundraisers for a few years now.

“It’s near and dear to our hearts,” Bean said. “The money that comes from the federal government for pediatric cancer is less than 4 percent because the market and the money is in the adults. These kids don’t even have a shot.”

“These kids are getting shorted and it’s a crime,” she added.

The Team Jack Foundation was founded in 2012 by the family of Jack Hoffman, a now 10-year-old boy from Atkinson who is best known for his friendship with former Husker football player Rex Burkhead and 69-yard ESPY-winning touchdown run in the 2013 Nebraska spring game.
