Thousand Islands Land Trusted Recipes

25th Anniversary Cookbook

A culinary tour of the Thousand Islands. Delicious recipes collected from the entire region.

Erin Brick reviewed the cookbook in TI Life's I’m editing a cookbook in March 2010.  Here is one part of the revew:

"Doreen Meeks of Grindstone Island and Clayton Center submitted her mother’s “1940s Wartime Cake.” Doreen, the quintessential volunteer, someone who seems to be able to be in multiple places at one time and who has boundless energy, is well known for her potluck dinner contributions. Any recipe from Doreen will be worth the effort. Doreen said of this grab-whatcha-got-in-the-pantry cake, “Mom (Helen Calhoun) used to make this cake using food rations and surplus ingredients. No frosting needed, just a spoon for all us kids to lick the bowl.” Life’s simple pleasures endure, even (especially) in difficult times!"

The cookbook is available at the TILT office
