Nut Apricot Bars from Lavinia Lohrmann, Stephenville, Texas

Yesterday I gave you Hamburger Dip for March Madness games...
today I give you Nut Apricot Bars! 
If you have any room left after pigging out on the the Hamburger dip,
you might want to have these ready! 
I am going to make these soon to send up to my son in college...
I never knew Lavinia Lohrmann, but she must have been quite a character.
She was a good friend of my mother-in-law, and my husband was good friends with a son of hers.
(That was long before I entered the scene!)
If I remember correctly, she served as mayor of
Stephenville, Texas (Erath County),
was a founding member of Faith Lutheran Church in Stephenville,
and owned a ranch, among several other endeavours. 
Stephenville is creating a Memorial Nature Trail in her honor. 
She must have been quite the cook as well,
because she has several recipes in my
Faith Lutheran Church cookbook from Stephenville. 
I just love community cookbooks, don't you?
What is your favorite community cookbook?


  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

  2. My favorite community cookbook is from the church I was baptized in. It was my mother's family church. It has a lot of recipes in it from her family. Welcome to the world of geneablogging.

  3. As we say down here in the South "Well hey, ya'll!" (sorry - I couldn't resist!) Thanks so much Brenda and Dr. Bill for commenting! Brenda - I bet your church cookbook is amazing! I hope you have marked which recipes are from her family! Someday, someone will wonder...!! Dr. Bill, I am going to check out your blog! It sounds really interesting. Look forward to hearing from "ya'll" again soon! Thanks for following me!

  4. What a wonderful idea for a blog! I love it!
