Holiday Recipe Cookbook – submit your recipes before Nov 1!




Due to uncertain circumstances, DCHS is not currently planning on a December 2021 Bake Sale.

We know this will come as a disappointment to many, so we are going to keep the Bake Sale spirit alive by printing and selling a DCHS Holiday Recipes Cookbook, filled with our favorite Bake Sale recipes – and hopefully yours too!

Holiday Recipe Submission Form DCHS


The DCHS Holiday Recipes Cookbook will have three sections:

DCHS Bake Sale Favorites (and more!)

In this section, you will find many of the recognizable recipes from our traditional annual Bake Sale and from our volunteers, staff, and board members.

Recipes of Recognition

For a $10 (or greater) donation, DCHS will print submitted recipes dedicated to the honor or memory of friends and loved ones. This is a great way to preserve your family’s tried-and-true recipes while supporting DCHS. (Please see the facing submission form.) Recipes in this section will have room for a short 100-word blurb where you may include a memory. Recipes are due to DCHS by Monday, November 1st.

Recipes from Douglas County

You may also send DCHS your favorite holiday recipes without a donation. We will include as many as we feasibly can, but depending on the number received and printing constraints, we may have limited space. Recipes are due to DCHS by Monday, November 1st. 


We hope to make the cookbook available before Thanksgiving. We can’t wait to see what memories and recipes this cookbook will hold!
