To help mark its 60th anniversary, DBC will be publishing a cookbook in the coming year. The cookbook will be a celebration of the special connection between family and food. We need your help to make this happen! Please send in your recipes, along with a short narrative explaining why the recipe is significant to you. Maybe you used to make a special birthday cake with your grandmother, or your mother made the world’s best lasagna that everyone in the family loved. All types of recipes are welcome: appetizers, entrees, salads, drinks, desserts, etc. Please send recipes to the church office. Also, feel free to send in family photos to accompany the recipes as well!
