Last call for recipes

Bird Rock kindergarten teacher Lorene LaCava is asking people to join her effort to create a new community cookbook, the first in 18 years, by submitting recipes.

“We’ve got about 225 recipes now and we’re shooting for 400,” she said recently at a Bird Rock Community Council meeting. “We just want your favorite recipes.”

LaCava added that July 31 is the deadline to submit recipes for the cookbook, which is scheduled to go to the printer Aug. 30 for release before the winter holidays.
