asked about memories of all-time favorite food, grandma’s cooking comes to mind.
After all, what could be

Residents, dining directors and associates of Spring Hills Morristown Assisted
Living are part of the writing team of Spring Hills Signature Family Cookbook
who will launch the book at a Tasting and Book launch event on September 9, 2:15

The book’s release date is tied to “Homemade
Happiness,” the theme for the 2013 National Assisted Living Week® (NALW),
September 8 to 14, 2013. What could be more “Homemade” than cooking and what could bring more
happiness than sharing wonderful meals with friends and family. Working with the
outstanding team of chefs associated with Spring Hills communities as well as
residents, the sources of many great recipes, and associates who relish their
family’s own valued recipes, the new Spring Hills Signature Family Cookbook is
a prime example of “homemade happiness.”
The inspiration behind this project came from Alex Markowits, Spring
Hills President and CEO. Markowits had the vision to incorporate the
health-focused initiatives of their Signature Dining Program into a cookbook. He said, “I always thought it would be
wonderful to have a cookbook we could share and enjoy with the entire Spring
Hills Family, uniting our communities, as if we are all dining together.”
As creativity flowed and ideas evolved, residents and associates were encouraged to submit their personal recipes transforming it to a focus on comfort foods, giving the book a more personal feel and solidifying it as another special Spring Hills Signature Touch.
