Cook the Book Program

Pioneer woman

Do you love browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes? Then hang onto your spatula! Here’s a way to make only one new recipe but try several. We pick the cookbook(s); you choose and make a recipe. Come to the desk to see the cookbook, use a Post-It note to mark which recipe you choose, and take a copy of the recipe home. All participants will prepare their chosen recipes and bring them to the meeting to share. As we sample them, we can share information about whether the recipe was easy or hard to make, what worked or didn’t work well, and helpful hints for anyone wanting to try making it themselves. For all skill levels of cooks. We’ll try this program a couple of times, and if it’s popular do it on a regular basis. Our first cookbook selection is The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From my Frontier. In the Flewharty-Powell Annex.
