Few things bring people together like good food.
The thousands of women involved in the National Association of Junior Auxiliaries (NAJA) since it was organized in 1941 have always known that. And, as these women lived below the Mason Dixon line, they’ve had a knack for cooking incredible meals, along with a graceful approach to bringing their communities together.
Silver Spoons, Blueberry Afternoons, the premier cookbook from the NAJA, honors this longstanding tradition of community philanthropy and bonding over great food.
Noteworthy recipes include:
Cheddar Cheese and Sausage Muffins and Peaches and Cream-Stuffed Toast
- Lemon Pasta Salad, Carolina Fried Chicken Salad and Male Chauvinist Chili
- Italian-Style Eggplant Stacks, Two-Cheese Squash Casserole, Shrimp and Olive Pasta
- Grilled Garlic and Herb Pork Tenderloin and
- Gingered Carrot Cake with Orange Cream Cheese Frosting, Fabulous Apple Dumplings and Caramel Cheesecake Bars
- Chocolate Italian Cream Cake, Toffee Tiramisu, and Chocolate Cobbler
The cookbook also shares stories about the thousands of lives that Junior Auxiliaries have positively impacted through their outreach programs. Activities include collecting coats and clothes for local kids, working with local elementary schools to teach nonexistent courses, and financing local scholarships, among countless other activities.
Silver Spoons, Blueberry Afternoons is a testament to thousands of women who have made a difference through their selfless act, and unparalleled aptitude to create great food.
