A women’s group with Parfreyville United Methodist Church are selling a cook book to raise funds for ministries both at home and overseas.
Put together by the United Methodist Women of the Morning Joy Circle, “Our Daily Bread” offers 400 recipes from members of the church.
In order to make the cook book more user friendly, the recipes are written with simple, step-by-step instructions.
The book is divided into eight categories, beginning with appetizers and beverages and ending with cookies and candy, along with main dishes, side dishes and breads.
There are also indexes that list the recipes and all of the contributors alphabetically.
“Gathering the recipes was a journey in itself, but we made it fun with some games, contests, and we even had a drawing for three large baskets filled with food related items,” according to Jean Frisch from the women’s group. “Now that the book is published, we look back and realize what a treasure this Cook Book truly is.”
All profits from the sale of the church cook book will go to various ministries.
Locally, proceeds will benefit Waupaca’s Project Backpack, and the Waupaca Area Food Pantry.
United Methodist Women also contributes to state, national and international missions.
Published by Morris Press of Kearney, Nebraska, “Our Daily Bread” offers a brief history of the Parfreyville United Methodist Church and its Mission Statement, plus helpful hints and cooking tips.
“Our Daily Bread” may be purchased from several Waupaca area businesses: Sisters, Rose Garden Restaurant, Embellishments, Rhythm & Brews and Main Street Market, Crystal River Cottage, Cinnamon House, Turners Market, King Berry, King’s Table and Cate & Co.
