Sweet Treats and Healthy Eats Cookbook Club

With in-person programming on hiatus right now due to COVID-19, including our beloved cooking demonstrations, Rutherford County Library System started a Cookbook Club for 2021. Patrons who wish to join the Cookbook Club will receive a free binder recipe book titled Sweet Treats & Healthy Eats and three new recipes per month throughout the year. Each month will feature a starter/appetizer, an entrée, and a dessert recipe printed on heavy paper and ready to be added to the binder. All library employees submitted recipes for the cookbook, and every month one of the recipes will be featured in our web video series, “Cooking with RCLS.” To sign up for a physical copy of Sweet Treats & Healthy Eats, and join the Cookbook Club, please call 828-287-6115 and speak with a library staff member. Anyone may join our online Facebook Cookbook Club by clicking https://www.facebook.com/groups/163347268304644/. Physical copies of Sweet Treats & Healthy Eats are available while supplies last, but recipes can be printed off by clicking on the links below as they become available on a monthly basis.
