Can't go wrong with this cookbook

You just can’t go wrong owning a church cookbook filled with recipes submitted by church members eager to share the best of their best.


Released just in time to help commemorate the 20th year of Bluffton’s Lowcountry Presbyterian Church, “Favorite Recipes,” highlighting close to 500 recipes in categories that include appetizers, soups, salads and beverages, as well as main dishes, side dishes, breads, desserts (and more), is a cookbook like that. The church’s cookbook committee, comprised of chairwoman Andrea (Andy) Hoerner, Megan Aylmer, Bonnie Dove, Bobbie Gasser, Wendy Guise, Dee Lehr, Judy Lowry and Kay Post, gave the best of their best, too, bringing the church’s new cookbook to completion in just 4½ months, a monumental achievement when one considers the kind of dedication (and time) it takes to acquire, compile, proofread and get recipes typed into the format that will ultimately become a cookbook.

Profits from the cookbook, which costs just $12 (or $30 for three cookbooks), while supplies last, will be overseen by the ministry of the Women of the Church for use where it is needed most by the church. Folks may arrange to get the cookbook by calling 843-815-6570, where inquiries may also be made about how a book may be shipped to you direct.
