Cookbook Recipe
Loretta's King Ranch Chicken Casserole
This delicious recipe was given to our mom by her dear friend, Loretta. It's a quick and easy recipe and, served with a salad, makes a great family meal or a special meal for guests.

Cookbook Recipe
Cheeseburger Soup
Talk about comfort food! It's currently our very favorite soup and goes great with a loaf of jalapeno cheese bread from the grocery store. We always look forward to this meal!

Cookbook Recipe
Crockpot Low Carb Spicy Chicken Soup
We found this great low carb recipe on Pinterest. It's a a very tasty way to eat a low carb meal and to get your vegetables for the day. We lightened it a little by using Light Velvetta, light cream cheese and fat free half and half instead of the heavy cream. Even with these changes it was rich and delicious!

Cookbook Recipe
Mom's Famous Earthquake Cake
My mom made this cake for many years. It was one of her top requests for birthdays, pot lucks and just about any occasion. It's moist and rich and easy to make. You're going to love it!

Cookbook Recipe
Hawaiian Wedding Cake
One of my Mom's favorite cakes! Submitted by: "Kathleen Brown" Image: This is a picture of our beautiful mom who we lost to Alzheimer's August 4, 2013.

Cookbook Recipe
Cordelia's Pound Cake
I receive this recipe over 20 years ago from a coworker. This is one of the easiest cakes to make and you can change it by adding different types of fruit or pouring a sauce over over the cake. Submitted by: "Cindy Leslie"

Cookbook Recipe
Kelly's Spicy Sausage Balls
My husband, Kelly, loves to cook and he likes to take a standard recipe and kick it up a notch. That's exactly what he did to come up with this great recipe for Sausage Balls. I could make a meal out of these things!

Cookbook Recipe
Texas Armadillo Eggs
This makes a great appetizer or finger food for any gathering! It's kind of like a sausage ball wrapped around a stuffed jalapeno. Yum! Pure Texas! Submitted by: "Kathleen Brown"

Cookbook Recipe
Spicy Avocado Chicken Enchiladas
To make these spicy, leave the seeds in the Serrano pepper and use a medium Salsa Verde. For the milder version, remove the seeds and use mild Salsa Verde. Although this recipe has quite a few ingredients, it's not difficult and it is definitely worth the effort! Submitted by: "Kathleen Brown"

Cookbook Recipe
Beef with Brocolli
This is an easy version of the classic Chinese take out. The recipe calls for flank steak, but we use whatever steak is on special. We serve it over brown rice and spice it up with a little Sriracha. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! Submitted by: "Kathleen Brown" The picture attached to this recipe was painted by our mom, in the Alzheimer's Associations "Memories in the Making" program. The Alzheimers Association - North Central Texas Chapter celebrates five years of Memories in the Making, an art program for people with dementia that brings the joy of creative self-expression to residents of area dementia care communities. The enigmatic watercolor paintings by MIM artists communicate, in the subtle and nuanced language of art, a sense of self that transcends memory loss. The delightful images offer a window onto world beyond memory, words and rational thought.

Cookbook Recipe
Mary Jo's Amazing Lemon Poke Cake
Every Sunday my mother-in-law, Mary Jo Kurosky, would make a Sunday meal for the the whole family. Most of her specialties were never written down...she just created them on the spot. Fortunately, this lemon cake recipe was one of the few that was actually written out and I want to share it. It's one of my favorite cakes and she always made it, with love, for my birthday. This is one of the moistest, most delicious cakes you'll ever eat! Submitted by: "Linda Kurosky"

Cookbook Recipe
Mom's Homemade Enchilada Sauce
My mother would make a huge pan of enchiladas. Each tortilla was dipped in this sauce before stuffing and rolling. She liked to decorate the top with sliced pimento stuffed olives, onions and bell peppers. The pan would hold 20-24 rolled tortillas. I still have the pan and think of her often. Submitted by: "Jeanie Zinke"

Cookbook Recipe
Linda's Summertime Watermelon & Cucumber Salad
Years ago there was a little tea room in the back of an antique store in the Handley area of Fort Worth. One of the items on the menu was Watermelon & Cucumber Salad. That sounded like an odd combination to me...so I just had to try it! Absolutely Delicious! While this isn't the same recipe as the one in that little tea room, it's a pretty close second! Perfect for a hot summer day, it's very cool and refreshing! Submitted by: "Linda Kurosky"

Cookbook Recipe
Old Fashioned Gingerbread
My grandmother made wonderful gingerbread. As young people often do, I assumed she would always be here to make it for us so I never bothered to write down her recipe.

Cooking for a Cure was created in honor of our mom and dad, Melvin (Les) and Reba Leslie, with proceeds benefitting The Alzheimer's Association - North Central Texas Chapter. The mission of the North Central Texas Chapter and all other chapters of the Alzheimer's Association, is to eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. They are a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization who relies on our donations.

Their vision and ours is a world without Alzheimer's.

We lost both of our parents to this devastating disease and the Alzheimer's Association was there for us. Now we're doing our part to help them continue to support those with Alzheimer's, their families and their caregivers. And, most of all, we want to help them find a cure!

Now a little about our cookbook...we've gathered recipes from employees of the Alzheimer's Assoctiation, volunteers and friends and family who know the effects of this disease. Many of the recipes are dishes that we grew up with, others are quick and easy for today's busy families.

We've also added videos with information about Alzheimer's and the Fort Worth Walk to End Alzheimer's, as well as, photos of fundraisers, walks and the faces of Alzheimer's.

We hope you enjoy our collection and, most of all, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help in supporting this awesome organization!!

Tried the Lemon Polk Cake. That is one of the easiest cakes I've ever made. Took it to work and it was gone in no time. Everyone kept talk about how good it was. Well worth the purchase.
