It's Baked In: C-omm-U-nity Recipe Collection
This is the official home of “It’s Baked In,” where recipe submissions from the Champaign-Urbana community will be posted after they are submitted to the Black Joy Project at the Spurlock Museum.

The Spurlock Museum, in conjunction with The Black Joy Project, wishes to thank the members of the local community for sharing dishes what are special to them - many of which have been passed down for generations - along with instructions on how to prepare them. We share them here, as written, for the purposes of growing the culture of food, friendship, and community in the greater Champaign-Urbana area. ☀
