Library Use is Always a Successful Recipe
December 30, 2010
Did you know your that local Mid-Continent Public branch is a storehouse of recipes? We are a little like the shelf in Mom's kitchen where the recipes are kept. Remember, it has the Betty Crocker cookbooks and the box with recipes clipped from the newspaper with Mom's favorites?
We have many varieties of cookbooks to choose from. As well as Betty Crocker cookbooks, we have the recipe books sold by local groups for fund raisers. Yes, the ones like Our Daily Bread from the Dearborn Christian Church, or the Fun and Friendship Club Cook Book. These cookbooks have the favorite recipes of many local residents and bits of local lore. The one that I am looking at has a page titled "To Remove Stains from Washables". I would need that information after making a batch of Mexicali Beef from the recipe book!
There are also special purpose cookbooks here. There's one titled 501 Recipes for a Low-carb Life for people who are trying to eat fewer carbohydrates. There are also cookbooks specifically for losing weight and for giving diabetics healthy recipes. We can help find recipe books recommended for various medical conditions.
Have you ever been looking for the recipe that made the food taste just like Mom used to make? We also have a recipe database titled Culinary Arts Collection. This database indexes 250 major cooking and nutrition magazines and includes recipes, restaurant reviews, and industry information.
So, whether you want to reproduce one of family's favorite recipes or you just want a change of taste in cooking, the Library is your source for all kinds of food information. Stop by soon and pick up an order of delicious recipes to go.
