Marge's Diner Cookbook of Darn Fine Recipes ... hundreds served!
Price: $0.00 USD
Coming Soon


As a sneak preview to my new cookbook, here are some of the most-requested recipes from Marge's Diner.  Enjoy! 

Marge's Diner Dills - These crunchy dill pickles are my most sought-after condiment.  They are relatively easy to make, and outside of cleaning the dills and soaking them in water overnight, the process for one batch should take two to three hours.  The secret?  Get everything you'll need ready ahead of time. 

 The Telkwa Hall Rum Punch - This is our family's most-requested recipe.  Some people say it is because we have Irish, Newfie and Northern BC in our blood.  Maybe.  More likely because it is quite the thirst-quencher when one is out on the dance floor.  Or just standing around.  A friendly reminder, don't drink and drive. 

Real Italian Spaghetti Sauce - Considering I learned how to cook this sauce in northern British Columbia, even our Italian friends and relatives like it.
