Simple, Easy, Uncomplicated Recipes for Seminarian Cooks

"Fr. Leo" Feed the body, feed the soul."

Serra Club - Nazareth House Cookbook Project



 Dear Fellow Serrans,

The Serra Clubs are working on a Cookbook for the new Nazareth House Seminary here in Phoenix. The new seminarians will be busy learning how to live and pray together in community, as well as beginning their college studies. We are hoping to send them a little love and encouragement for their new “home away from home” by gathering some simple recipes for a cookbook.

We would really appreciate your special recipe(s) to add to the cookbook. Remember most of these young men are new to cooking and will be super busy with their studies - so the simpler the better.

Thanks so much for your help on this fun project. See below for all the details. If you have any questions, suggestions or thoughts please feel free to contact me.

Thanks so much for all you do to encourage vocations! 

+God Bless,

Alice Wold at



Nazareth House Cookbook

We are compiling a cookbook of recipes for the young men who will be in formation at the Nazareth House. Please join us by bringing a little of your home to their kitchen!

We are looking for:

  • Simple, easy, family favorite recipes to accommodate their busy schedule.
  • Include complete and thorough instructions.
  • Avoid recipes with fancy equipment or ingredients.
  • Recipes to feed a small crowd are encouraged.


Send your recipes to Alice Wold by August 15th
