Tribute Opportunity in Volume II of Tastes & Treasures Cookbook

The award winning Tastes & Treasures cookbook was first published by the Historical League in 2006 and has been a wonderful success for the organization.  We are proud to announce that the second volume of recipes will be published in 2017. All proceeds will once again go towards the League's mission to support the Arizona Historical Society and the AZ Heritage Center at Papago Park in Tempe, Arizona (formerly the Arizona Historical Society Museum). We invite you to join us so we may recognize your support for the next 10 years.


Picture someone special in your life that showed you they loved you, in all kinds of ways, but one important way was through cooking. Whether it's a grandparent who always served your favorite dish the first night of a visit, a dear friend who taught you how to make the cookies you still love, or a relative you honor when you prepare a treasured holiday dish, a Tribute Page in TASTES & TREASURES, VOLUME II is a wonderful way to celebrate that person you love - as well as introducing the person to a larger audience. Several people can get together to form a group to create a Tribute Page in honor of a special someone. The cost of a Tribute Page in the Cherished Legacy Recipe chapter of the cookbook is $500.

To submit, please include the following:
* One recipe (to be tested and approved by the Cookbook Committee) as a tribute to an individual or organization
* A short write-up of the connection between the recipe and the person or organization being honored
* A photo of the recipe originator (will be printed in sepia tone)

Tribute Page to Sedona Schnebly in Cherished Legacy Recipes
Sponsored by Lisa Schnebly-Heidinger

My great-grandmother, Sedona Schnebly, was famous for her cooking: one early visitor wrote of a Thanksgiving dinner that included turkey, beef, duck and pork, as well as a squash hollowed out and used to serve cooked cabbage.  She was a practical cook who rarely measured, but she wrote down her quick and simple apple pie dessert that her family loved.  (This photo shows her with her husband T.C. and my grandpa Ellsworth, in Sedona in about 1904.)

Sedona’s Apple Pie Dessert
1 egg, beaten

½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup white sugar
½ cup flour
2 cups tart apples, diced
½ cup chopped nuts


Mix all ingredients well.  Put in a buttered pie pan and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Serve with cream or homemade vanilla ice cream.
