In the kitchen: Caramel Corn

3

EDITOR’s NOTE: We regret that the recipe directions were inadvertently printed incorrectly in the September issue. Below are the complete directions for making Caramel Corn. 

 

The Women’s Ministry at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church recently published a cookbook, “Charming Celebrations.” The project began in 2011 as members tested hundreds of recipes, photographed recipes for the cookbook, many edits, and much prayer.

The cookbook is a beautifully illustrated, hard bound book which features over 300 recipes from women of Johnson Ferry Baptist Church.

“We think our cookbook is unique in that stories are shared with many of the recipes. In addition, pictures of beautiful charms and inspiring scripture are interwoven throughout the book,” shares Marsha Crowe, Minister of Women.

Profits from the sale of “Charming Celebrations” will provide opportunities for women to serve in local and global mission through its Women’s Ministry. “Charming Celebrations” Cookbooks are $20 and available for purchase on the church’s website johnsonferry.org, at their church bookstore, “The Bookmark” and in the Women’s Ministry Office.

For more information about the cookbook, call 770-794-2974.

Johnson Ferry Baptist Church is located at 955 Johnson Ferry Road in Marietta/East Cobb. For more information about Charming Celebrations, contact Carol Donohue at 770-794-2974 or carol.donohue@jfbc.org.
