Winnitascan Recipe Book

     At all of our Lone Cypress Winnitascans outings part of the enjoyment is how we wine and dine ourselves. The good home-cooked food provided by our members always makes for a special and delicious time. Here we share some of our favorite recipes used at our events.

  1. Lone Cypress Winnitascan Recipe Book - Let's start with a great collection of 30 favorite LCW shared recipes complied by Betty Rausch. Download her whole cook book and then get ready for some real "lip smacking" treats not included in those listed below. (PDF File)

    Now that we have started this, how about posting some more of your successful "road tested" recipes you've shared with us at our previous gatherings? Let's make this page grow - hopefully not along with our waistlines. There are several ways to send a recipe to us. The newest way is to use the member's "Recipe Blog," or you can also just e-mail it directly to the webmaster.  Either attach it to your message or type it directly into the message itself, whichever you are most comfortable with.  Please include when and where you used it.
