From My Kitchen to Your Table is a cookbook project created by Alex Otero and Mara Huber as a way to support Blue Table while creating a resource for students who want to cook homemade meals in college. A group of UB students and staff are designing and assembling a cookbook and need your help to fill it with recipes that are meaningful to you and your family! We want to use recipes from all parts of the UB community in order to represent what “comfort food” means to different people. As a member of the UB community, we would love to include one of your recipes! Please submit your favorite recipe(s) and a related story or memory and share this opportunity with other UB students, faculty and staff.
