Calling all quarantine cooks!

Most of us have been eating a lot more of our meals at home over the past several months as we keep social distance during the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Is there some tried-and-true comfort food, just like your grandmother used to make, that makes your kitchen smell like hers?

Maybe there’s a sourdough starter called “Dough-ly Parton” (we hear you’re supposed to name them) you’ve been carefully feeding and nurturing, and you’ve really mastered the technique of the perfect loaf.

Better yet, a quick-and-easy snack food that’s helping fuel your late-night study binge or writing that 20-page term paper!

Whatever it is, we want to hear about the recipes that are keeping your spirits (and blood-sugar level) up while you navigate the rapidly changing world around you… or while you just navigate your apartment.

Let’s create Athabasca University’s Beyond 50 cookbook together. We’re looking for recipes from our learners, alumni, and team members to help celebrate Athabasca University’s 50th anniversary this year.

Please include any helpful tips and tricks to get the most out of the recipe, and if you’d like, write us 100-150 words about why this recipe is meaningful to you. Be sure to include a photo of your creation—we’ve linked a handy tip sheet of what to consider when shooting your dish.

We want you to be a part of our celebrations, in the most delicious way possible! And to sweeten the deal, if you send in your recipe we’ll enter you into a draw where you could win a Google Home Mini (you can ask it for recipes) or some sweet Beyond 50 swag.

You can submit your recipe below or send an email to
