Homemade recipe wins Family Weekend Cook-off


During family weekend, UNF parents showed off their cooking skills and made their college student’s favorite homemade recipe. I was a judge during the cook-off and am reviving “College Cooking with Lori” this week to display the recipe of the Best Overall winner.
