Collecting Recipes from our Elders – A Senior Perspective

Cookbook-Vol10That’s right, ask your family elders to record their recipes for a legacy cookbook being compiled by the DCPL (Decatur branch) and Decatur Active Living. Enter your family pride recipe, a heart healthy version, or the one that everyone always asks for after a family dinner. The recipe collection will be printed and distributed (for ┬áthose who contributed a recipe) at an event for seniors in May 2014. The active living board of directors will review recipes and award a heart symbol next to all the recipes that offer a healthy version.

Deadline to submit an entry is Feb 6, one month from today. See DCPL for forms or print the version attached below.
