Cooking up a cookbook

Gisele Poliseno’s regular correspondence for the North Green Lake/Watch Lake area

By Gisele Poliseno

The Watch Lake/North Green Lake VFD Auxiliary is planning to create a cookbook as a fundraiser to raise monies for the fire department. The auxiliary’s goal is to have this cookbook available at the Bake and Garage sale in May. Currently, I have 60 recipes and need, at least, 100 recipes to even start the cookbook. If you would like to participate, please send me your favourite recipes and as many as you want, to this email address and include your name and phone number just in case I need to contact you. A huge thank you to the people who submitted their recipes already. It is so greatly appreciated.
