Break out the saucepan, the hot pads, the chef’s knife and the stand mixer!
The team managing Voices of UUCC, UUCC's congregational blog, have just launched an occasional series of posts that we’re calling “Voices of UUCC Foodies.”
Voices of UUCC Foodies will showcase recipes of UUCC folks. Each recipe will be introduced by a little background information (not expected to be much longer than one or two short paragraphs) that explains why the author decided to share it.
The inaugural post is by UUCC member (and future Board President) Frank Hazzard. Read it here – we know you’ll come away smiling. If you have time, please stick around the blog to browse the other posts. If you feel moved to do so, comment on or share posts on social media.
And do please consider becoming a “Voices of UUCC Foodies” blog post author!
- Do you have a recipe you make often for potlucks and other UUCC events? Write about it.
- Do you have a recipe that reminds you of a special time at UUCC? Write about it.
- Is there a particular recipe that calls to mind something you’re passionate about? From Mozart Balls to Chicken A La King, recipes can remind us of what we do as a community -- music, social and environmental justice, social action, work with children and youth, fellowship activities, etc.
- Have you experienced a memorable recipe mishap or catastrophe? You can write about that, too.
Lead off your post with your brief introduction, explanation or story so the reader has some context. Then include your recipe.
It’s best for your introduction to establish some kind of connection between the recipe and UUCC. But even if there isn’t a direct connection, your sharing can illustrate that we’re people who love and care for one another, and who both celebrate and commiserate in community.
Please email your post, along with a suggested title, to the blog team at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would also like a (digital) portrait photo of yourself - we display a portrait of each post’s author. If you have a photo of your completed recipe, that would be great to have, too, and it can be pretty much any file size. If there’s some reason to publish your post at some specific time, please let us know that; otherwise, Regina Verow, our blog coordinator, will assign a publication date.
Please note that the blog team reserves the right to make edits (if edits are significant, you’ll be consulted) or to not publish a post. You can find authorship guidelines here.

The class also offers an opportunity to meet others who are exploring the choice of UUCC as their spiritual home.
