Recipes for the Ages

The Lutheran Home & Harwood Place are happy to provide inspiration with classic recipes offered up by the staff and residents. As part of their 110th anniversary celebration, we have created Recipes for the Ages. Grandparents are known for passing down delicious recipes and the grandparents and grandfriends at the Lutheran Home and Harwood Place are no different. This book includes treasured recipes from our talented residents and staff. As we ring in the new year, and celebrate 110 years in business, it is the perfect opportunity to celebrate all those that have made the Lutheran Home and Harwood Place what it is today.

We, at the Lutheran Home and Harwood Place, thank God for the many gifts He has blessed us with. We are grateful to provide care and services to those that live at the Lutheran Home and Harwood Place. Thank you to all the residents and staff who have made this organization and cookbook a success!

Add the lemon juice. While the processor is on add the oil in a slow steady stream until smooth. Season to taste with salt and course ground black pepper.
