Recipe Sharing

I love recipes! They are so important to our culture and our family history. They tell stories about time periods and connect people to one another from one generation to the next.
I've set up this page to not only share what we cook in class but my favorite family recipes and for LKMS families to share their favorite recipes. Add a comment to this page and share. Add a picture, tell a story of why you're family loves the recipe.
