Each school year, author and cooking instructor Evelyn Hoefakker shares her love of cooking with her students, teaching them simple yet healthy recipes and giving them a taste of independence. Her new book, “Such Great Recipes” (published by LifeRich Publishing), shares those delicious recipes with a hungry audience.

The recipes cover the culinary spectrum, ranging from appetizers to soups to entrées, breads and of course, dessert. With accompanying full color photos, each recipe includes a complete ingredient list along with detailed step-by-step cooking instructions.

Hoefakker also includes short introductions to each recipe as well as “notes and quotes” with additional suggestions on plating and presenting each dish. She hopes to inspire novice cooks as well as old pros to push their limits and find great joy in cooking foods they love for people they love.

Praise for “Such Great Recipes”:

“Evelyn is an outstanding cook. Her food and presentation is always impressive. She was our first choice to cater both rehearsal dinners for our sons’ recent weddings. As we expected, our guests raved. Trust Evelyn for tasty recipes with guaranteed results! ”

— [Mayor] Scott & Ellen Korthuis, Lynden, Washington
