    What’s Cookin’?

    Do you have a favorite family recipe that everyone is always asking for?

    Almost all families have recipes that are treasured either for their taste or for the special memories that they may evoke, and the Frankfort Square Park district “family” is no exception! Our staff members love to share their family favorites, old and new, with one another.

    With this in mind, the Wellness Committee is seeking recipes from not only the FSPD staff, but also from you, our residents.  Beginning with this winter/spring brochure, we are asking that you contribute to our first-ever Frankfort Square Park District cookbook.  This project will be open through the full cycle of tri-annual brochures, and requests for recipe contributions will be included in the upcoming 2016 summer and fall brochures.  Once complete, the cookbooks will be available at the Park District office located at 7540 W. Braemar Lane, Frankfort.

    What do we need?

    This is a Wellness committee project, so of course, we welcome healthy recipes, but keep in mind that any food enjoyed in moderation can be considered healthy!

    Starters:  Appetizers, dips, salads, breads

    Meals:  Main dishes, casseroles, soups, stews

    Desserts:  Cakes, cookies, pies

    Can I submit more that one recipe?

    Yes!  The more recipes we collect, the more complete and useable our cookbook will become!

    Please consider including information about your recipe.  For example, is it a family heirloom passed down from generation to generation, is it a traditional dish that makes your holiday complete, or did you create a special recipe that your children love.

    If the recipe comes from another source such as a book, website, or Pinterest post, please include that information.

    Recipes should be submitted via email to:, mailed to the Wellness Committee at Frankfort Square Park District, 7540 W Braemar Lane, Frankfort, Illinois   60423, or dropped off at the Park District Administration Building.
