      Hi Karen,
      If you contact Katharine Constas at she will be happy to send you a list of the recipes. We will post a list soon (this is a student-run project and once they are back on campus we will have them forward us the list). Thanks for your interest!

    Need the ZIPCODE for Julianna Lord’s posted address to send payment. Thank, you. Barb “T”

      Hi Barbara,
      The zip code is actually 01075, since it’s the address of the College. Emily gave you the zip to her home address, so please disregard. Thanks!
