From the Introduction, 2004: During the late 1970s, a small cookbook featuring favorite recipes from the staff of the Henry Whittemore Library at Framingham State College was produced as a way to showcase their talents. Since that time, Library employees have come and gone, but the cookbook idea was never revived, until now. After having taking pleasure in many birthday parties and pot luck luncheons where the staff shared a wonderful wealth of culinary concoctions, the idea for a new cookbook was born. In exhibiting their culinary talents, the staff is sharing with you some of our favorite recipes that we hope you will find easy to make, healthy, and delicious. We also hope to promote for a new generation the talents of the staff of the Whittemore Library. Enjoy!
