The GFWC Glendale Woman’s Club is sharing recipes in a new cookbook titled, “A Favorite Collection of Recipes.”

The 100-page cookbook features a wide array of everyday comfort foods collected from members, family and friends of the Glendale Woman’s Club. Categories include appetizers, beverages, soups, salads, vegetables, side dishes, main dishes, breads, desserts, cookies and candy.

The Cookbook Committee began planning the recipe collection last spring. Committee members include Jane Buckley, Grace Kobojek, Lucy Amavisca, Pat Kennedy, Sharon Brown and Eleanor Martinez.

“Our cookbook is a labor of love and we are thrilled to share our treasured family recipes with the community,” Jane Buckley, chairperson of the Cookbook Committee, stated.

The cookbook is available for $10 at two locations in Historic Downtown Glendale: Papa Ed’s Ice Cream (7146-B N. 58th Ave.) and Gracie’s Marketplace (7146 N. 58th Ave.). Proceeds from the sale of the cookbooks will assist the GFWC Glendale Woman’s Club’s ongoing community programs, activities and clubhouse building restorations.

The historic clubhouse is available for rent to the public for family gatherings, weddings, baby showers, church gatherings and business meetings. The rental income assists in allowing the members to continue their community projects and complete building updates.

The Woman’s Club is a 501 (c)3 non-profit which provides community-focused programs and events, and always welcomes new members, who do not need to live in the city of Glendale.
