Local Coverage

In One Book, Great Food, Dixie Burmeister comments on this year's selection for the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel. She also provides her mother-in-law's Coffe and Raisin bar cookie recipe, passed down from a great-grandmother in Iowa, and discusses the tradition of the bar cookie. Delicious.

The Grand Junction Daily Sentinel talked to committee members about our selection and events.
