Awhile back, the church my husband’s family attends in Oregon put together a recipe book as a fundraiser for the church. It is a professionally printed and bound book, . My mother-in-law gave me a copy for Christmas because the family submitted heavily, so it was her way of passing on a lot of their family recipes to me. So I’m going to periodically publish some of the recipes bestowed upon me and spread the love! Generations of Cherished Recipes from St. Thomas Becket Parishioners
