2nd Printing of Toluca Lake “Favorite Recipes” Cookbook
The Toluca Lake Garden Club is proud to announce the 2nd printing of our Cookbook! If you didn’t purchase one last fall or would like to purchase additional books, they are available now. We expect this 2nd printing to sell out quickly. We have had great feedback from neighbors, friends and family about the quality of the recipes and how they are enjoying reading about Toluca Lake’s history and looking at the historical and celebrity photos. These cookbooks make wonderful gifts and are being sold an incredible price $21.85! So, make a list (and include yourself) and call Shirley Duenckel at (818) 769-6926.
