Residents from some of the senior living communities that are featured in this issue prepared their favorite recipes for our photo shoots. Perhaps you’ll discover something you’d like to try.
As you’ll discover, these ladies love to cook and bake. Fortunately for their neighbors and new friends, they always seem ready to share their favorite creations. Indeed, by the time our project wrapped up, Nick and I had been gifted quite a few goodie bags, all of which contained delicious treats! I would bet that just as with the freshman year of college, new residents quickly gain what might be called the senior-living 15 (pounds). Between the incredible restaurant fare, food-oriented gatherings and socializing with new friends, counting calories must be a challenge. It probably explains why residents take full advantage of fitness classes, swimming pools, miles of walking paths and other ways to exercise.
