Collaboration with MSU chefs has produced a lot of recipes over the years. Here's where you can find the latest recipes and seasonal ones as we release the archive.

Please feel free to use these recipes and to share with family and friends. If you share them on-line or publish them in any way, please follow these guidelines:

  1. If you’re adapting someone else’s recipe, begin with a short note of the goal and what you looked for, perhaps something you changed and why. Then give credit to the person who you got it from: "Recipe adapted from ___________" and give a link to the original source.
  2. If you used someone else’s recipe for inspiration, but changed it substantially and the product is somewhat similar to the published recipe, give credit to the original by saying, " This recipe by (me) was inspired by ____________. The original recipe can be found here." and give a link to the original recipe.
  3.  If you change the ingredients substantially or completely came up with the product on your own; and you write directions in your own words for how you prepared it, the recipe is your own and you should claim it.
