League Members Bring Cookbook Recipes to Meeting

Lunch is always a great reason to attend the monthly Historical League meetings. Monday, September 14 was no exception with Zona Lorig bringing Romaine Salad with Hearts of Palm and Artichokes pg 160. Yumm. It was delicious and almost all gone by the time I got to the buffet table.

Tobe Daum prepared Blueberry Muffins La Posada pg 62. No wonder the Harvey Girls were so popular, serving such a wonderfully light muffin packed with blueberries. After one taste, I realize why I do not buy muffins in the store.

El Chorro's historic recipe for Tastes & Treasures cookbook for dessert is Chocolate Icebox Cake pg 80. Betsy Davis prepared this 'melt in your mouth' cake and it makes me smile to think of the old Icebox style refrigerators. We have come a long way with convenience appliances but an old fashioned Icebox would still work quite well for this great treat.
