Baking with Barbara

Tis the Season to bring cheer to others and here at Pike County Hospice, we work hard to do just that for our patients! Barbara Robinson is unable to be at home and will often talk about her favorite holiday traditions of making various salads and candies for the holiday family gatherings.  With limited resources for baking Barbara’s favorites, some thinking and creativity had to come into play – making something that did not require the oven or microwave. Danielle McCartney, our Hospice Social Worker, took all the ingredients necessary to make a simple yet yummy salad that allowed Barbara the ability to assist in creating it. Barbara most definitely enjoyed the activity that made for a fun and joyful memory before Christmas! The Snicker Apple Salad was yummy too! Here is the recipe if you are interested in trying it yourself!
