The TCU Retirees Association cookbook is a compilation of a variety of delicious recipes from the association’s members. Some recipes have been passed from one family generation to the next. Others show more current trends, such as an emphasis on nutrition and healthy eating. Many of the recipes are favorites of Horned Frog tailgaters.
            The book is enriched by memories about each dish that accompany the recipes. The title of the cookbook, taken from the TCU alma mater, reflects these memories (“mem’ries sweet”), many of which refer to colleagues, family, and friends (“comrades true”). Iconic pictures of the TCU campus that represent Horned Frog life are used on the cover and throughout the book.
            Of special interest here are the nutritional analyses provided for each recipe. Dr. Anne VanBeber and her students from the Department of Nutrition Science at TCU provided detailed information, including carbohydrate and fat contents, for each dish in Memr’ies Sweet. Dr. VanBeber has also provided an appendix containing universal substitutions and suggestions for reducing the calorie count of some recipes.
