Need a Last Minute Recipe?

The libraries close by 6 pm this evening and won't be open Thursday or Friday. What happens when you need a recipe for the left-over turkey, mashed potatoes, or the three extra boxes of green Jello that were accidentally added to the grocery list (it happens to the best of us)?

Here are links for two great collections of recipes and food information: CMRLS Quick Reference Recipes and Food Preparation and Internet Public Library (IPL2)-Food . This is a link for a Google SEARCH for recipes and before you even type in an ingredient there are more than 252 million pages found!

We hope these links are helpful!

The staff of the CMRLS libraries wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving holiday!
