Cookbook Recipes

Central is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from our members.  These cookbooks will be professionally published and are sure to be a treasured keepsake for us all.  Money raised will be used for the Riverside Lutheran Cemetery.

Please submit 3-5 of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our cookbook.  Many recipes from all members will ensure that our cookbook is a success.

We anticipate a great demand for our cookbooks, and we want to be certain to order enough.  To reserve your copies, email or call the office with the number of cookbooks you will be purchasing.  (CLICK HERE FOR CONTACT INFO). Cookbooks will cost $15 each and will be available November 1st. 

Please submit your recipes by August 1 so we can meet our deadline.

3.  List ingredients in order of use in the ingredient line and directions.

4.  Include container sizes, e.g., (16-oz.) pkg., (25-oz.) can.

5.  Write directions in paragraph form, not in steps.

6.  Use names of ingredients in the directions e.g., "Combine flour and sugar."  DO NOT USE statements like "Combine first three ingredients."

7.  Include temperatures and cooking, chilling, baking, and/or feezing times.

8.  Include any additional comments about the recipe (history, nutritional data, suggested uses, etc.) under 'Recipe Notes'.
