Hi Everyone!

Enjoy the many recipes I'm sharing this month from  my Extension colleagues throughout the nation. The links will take you directly to their websites ... while you're there, I encourage you to further explore the many good ideas and food preparation tips they offer.

Did you know Cooperative Extension is celebrating its 100-year-aniversary this year!


Except for 2 recipes with 6 ingredients, all the recipes are made with 5 or less common ingredients (does NOT count water, salt, pepper and cooking oil).

Cook It Quick's Goal

Cook It Quick Newsletter

Our goal is to make you "hungry for healthy food" by offering tips and delicious, quick-to-prepare, inexpensive recipes.

Preparing these recipes and using the tips will help you increase consumption of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products. At the same time, you will reduce sodium, solid fats, and calories. Food safety tips are included. 

Feel free to use/adapt Cook It Quick  material when an article is written entirely by me for your own articles, blogs, handouts, etc. An example credit line is:  Authored by or Adapted from Alice Henneman, MS, RDN, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, Cook It Quick web materials.
