The Hearth of the Commonwealth: TWIW’s Holiday Recipe Book

by | Nov 16, 2020 | Headlines, Dining, Entertainment

With the holidays upon us, and in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, has put together an online recipe book made up submitted recipes from staff, family, friends, local leaders and TWIW readers.

It’s simple: in these uncertain times, we want to provide a way for people to spend their time, try new things and fill their bellies with good food.

This list of recipes below is a small start to what we hope is a continually growing recipe book. We will continue to accept recipes from now through the end of December and will update this “book” as submissions come in.

We would like to thank everyone who has submitted recipes so far and we truly hope you enjoy cooking your way through the holidays with us. 

Please send us recipes and photos to [email protected] to be added to this online recipe book. Already started cooking and baking? Send us your photos of your finished product!
