Why This Book

April has been a big month for the Clearview Library District! Our staff has been bustling with activity with our new library branch launch in Severance on April 6 and the upcoming Clearview Reads event with Sarah Penner this Saturday, April 27! With so much to do, there isn’t always enough time or energy to make meals during the week. This is why the Taste of Home: Make-Ahead Comfort Foods cookbook was our pick this month: it features excellent recipes to make ahead of time! The book has three categories of prep-now recipes to fit your schedule: Freezer Friendly, Refrigerate Overnight, and Slow Cooker. Throughout the book, icons mark these categories for easy browsing!

What We’re Trying: Cinnamon Blueberry French Toast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially when you’ve got a fun-packed day celebrating with Clearview Library District! This crockpot french toast is an ideal way to enjoy a great meal while also getting your beauty sleep.

  • Spring has arrived - Blueberries provide the fresh spring flavor we crave this time of year.
  • Easy to prepare - Prep time for this meal is only 15 minutes, which can be done the evening before. 
  • Key Tips - Don’t have french bread? We didn’t either; Taste of Home recommends using whole wheat buns instead if you want to increase fiber. 
  • Celebrate with us - All ages are welcome to join us for various fun programs every week! Learn more or register for programs online
