SMU Woman’s Club raises scholarship funds with cookbook project; recipes accepted until Dec. 15, 2014

All recipes are welcome, including side dishes, main courses, desserts, sweets, food gifts, game-day snacks, kosher and ethnic treats, and vegetarian recipes, says Kathy Barry, Woman’s Club president. The deadline for submissions is Friday, Dec. 15, 2014.

The cookbook is scheduled for publication in October 2015; ordering information will be available in the spring. All proceeds benefit the SMU Woman’s Club Scholarship Fund, which helps support a female University student in need of financial assistance.

Over the past two years, the Woman’s Club has provided a total of $16,800 in monetary support, Barry says – including funding for a young woman from a family of four children who were all paying their own way through school. “She told us that without this support, she could not have stayed at SMU,” Barry adds.

For more information, or to send in your favorite recipe, email Kathy Barry.
