“Bernie’s Bites” Recipe Book

We are gathering  YOUR family recipes for a USF recipe book! The USF Alumni Association has joined forces with the Family Association, students, faculty and staff of USF to publish a commemorative keepsake recipe book that will be distributed annually. We encourage you to submit your family recipes to share with others as well as use them in your own kitchen!

USF alumni, students, faculty, staff, families of current students and friends are all invited to participate.


How Do I Submit a Recipe?
Do you have one or more recipes for making delectable soups, fresh salads, tasty appetizers, savory entrees, sweet desserts, refreshing drinks or more? Submit them here– as many recipes as you’d like to share! You may also send a recipe to alumni@stfrancis.edu and include “RECIPE” in the subject line. Lastly, you can mail a recipe to the Alumni & Family Relations Office, 500 Wilcox St., Joliet, IL 60435.


What is the Cost?
Friends who submit recipes will receive a complimentary e-book, while additional copies will be sold for $10. Every purchase you make generates dollars for current USF students and part of the cost is a tax-deductible donation towards the Francis Annual Fund. And what’s more, we will distribute a complimentary electronic version to everyone!
