UCO’s fundraising recipe book adds a dash of the past for good measure

OXFORD – The United Church of Oxford (UCO) has ‘cooked up’ a fundraising, original recipe book for sale titled “Recipes from the Heart,” just in time for Christmas shopping. If you’re stumped for a gift, this little book is packed firmly with well loved recipes, a dollop of history, a pinch of humor, and a generous helping of good cooking hints.
