Celebrating a decade of your favorite recipes
IT’S NOT EASY choosing a favorite recipe, but here’s a
trick offered by Costco member Julie Coolidge: Just look in
your cookbook for the page with the most food smears.
As we prepared our 10th annual cookbook, we asked members to send us their favorite recipes from the ;rst nine books in “The Costco Way” series. Judging by the nthusiastic response, it’s clear there are a lot of smeared pages in beloved cookbooks across the country.
We are featuring a few of those favorite recipes here. Enjoy!
You can ;nd all recipes from this book and past years online
at Costco.com. Just type “Costco Cookbooks” in the search
window on our home page.
“Our family loves this alad! It is so versatile.
We can vary the nuts,
use dried or fresh fruit
(fresh pineapple is
awesome), add different
cheeses and different
meats. It is also a great
way to use leftovers.”
