Submit Recipes for the Barron County 4-H Cookbook-Deadline Extended-May 10th!

The 4-H Adult Leader Council is creating a custom cookbook featuring favorite recipes from our 4-H members, volunteers, and the community. These cookbooks will be professionally published and are sure to be a treasured keepsake for us all. Money raised will be used for youth scholarships, award programs, and youth trip funding.

The deadline has been extended to May 10th to enter your recipes! We have about 200 recipes today and want to hit a goal of 300.

Please submit 3-5 of your favorite recipes so you can be represented in our cookbook. Many recipes from all members will ensure that our cookbook is a success. We are using Morris Press Cookbook’s web site to easily submit recipes online. If you do not have Internet access, our committee can enter them for you. Submit hard copies of your recipes to the UW-Extension office (335 E Monroe Ave, Room 2206, Barron, WI 54812).

We are hoping to have these fabulous cookbooks available by June/July 2019. They will be available for $10.00. Please submit your recipes online as soon as possible. You will have until May 10th to submit recipes so we can meet our deadline. Help us to make a great cookbook to share with the community!

Thank you!
