My Yummy Okarche Cookbook Recipes

I had this beautiful head of Phocas Farms cabbage sitting on my kitchen counter and I was trying to come up with a wonderful recipe for it.  I remembered Lisa cooking lunch for us at the office several years back.  She brought her wok and all the wonderful ingredients for Fried Cabbage.  So, I was on a search for the recipe.

Low and behold, I found it . . . . my 1980's Okarche Cookbook.  I can't tell you how often this cookbook came in handy when the kids were small. . . much before we would run to the computer to find a recipe on the internet everytime we needed one.  I mean, that's much faster than now days than trying to flip through a cookbook. Right?  Anyway,  flipping through the cookbook brought back many memories. 

I've included several of my favorites in the recipe section of this sight.  Be sure to check them out.

Happy Cooking!

I also had a cookbook from Okarche. I had many favorite recipes. I just moved and lost my cookbook. Is there any way to get another one or are they long gone? It was a favorite of mine.

I imagine the cookbooks are gone as this was published in 1984, but you might check with the Okarche Memorial Hospital Auxiliary who put the book together. They may have one lying around in the stockroom.. . . and yes, tons of yummie recipes.

I used to have the very same cookbook! It got lost years ago. I would love to be able to have one now. It was my favorite cookbook ever. I've been looking for it for years. There's a recipe for Zucchini bread that was my favorite. I'm wondering if you could look it up for me in your cookbook. I would LOVE to have that recipe.
