Marilyn Parke's Cherished Legacy Recipe for pancakes

When our granddaughter wanted pancakes after a sleepover, Tastes & Treasures II had the recipe. She was able to make them herself (with Nana doing the cooking.) We embellished with fresh blueberries, raspberries, topping with bananas and whipped cream.

Thanks to the Cherished Legacy section with Marilyn Parke's family favorite. Easy recipes and complex recipes, Tastes & Treasures II has them all.

Water Policy the topic of February Meeting

Does Arizona need to know about water issues? You bet!! Sarah Porter, director of the Kyl Center for Water Policy at Arizona State University's Morrison Institute for Public Policy, was our guest speaker today. The Kyl Center promotes research, analysis, collaboration and dialogue to build consensus in support of sound water stewardship solutions for AZ and the West. Sarah serves on Gov. Ducey's Water Augmentation, Innovation and Conservation Council, University of Arizona's Water Resources Research Center's External Advisory Council, the Phoenix Parks and Recreation Board, Phoenix's Environmental Quality and Sustainability Commission and several other community boards.

A native of Phoenix, Sarah received her bachelor's degree with honors from Harvard College and her J.D. from Arizona State University College of Law. Before joining the Kyl Center, she was the Arizona state director of the National Audubon Society, where she worked on the Western Rivers Project and helped launch the Nina Mason Pulliam Rio Salado Audubon Center, a nature education center located in a restored riparian habitat in South Phoenix.   

President Claire Nullmeyer thanked her with a gift of Tastes & Treasures II: A Storytelling Cookbook of Historic Arizona.
