Celebrate Southlake’s Cookbook: Let’s Make Some Play-dough!

On this week’s Minute with the Mayor, Mayor John Huffman and his wife Elizabeth Huffman invited us into their home to make her homemade play-dough recipe.

The family recipe is featured in the Celebrate Southlake’s cookbook, which is inspired by Celebrate Southlake, an annual event that recognizes and honors different cultures within our community.

“This year, we thought it would be cool to do a community cookbook where all of you could submit your recipes, things that are connected to you and your family and your culture into one cookbook, and we can put it all out for the City to see and to celebrate,” said Mayor Huffman.

Mrs. Huffman submitted recipes she felt represented her family and the time they share together. One of those recipes was a fun, quick, and easy, non-edible homemade play-dough.


“I added homemade play-dough which has been my go-to play-dough with my kids, especially when they were younger,” said Mrs. Huffman. “Especially when it’s hot outside and you’re trying to do activities with your kids on the inside, it’s fun to just get in the kitchen and get a little bit messy and make some play-dough.”

You can find all of Mrs. Huffman’s recipes along with other fun desserts, appetizers, and dinners, in the Celebrate Southlake’s cookbook. Download here..
