Food Challenges

Every month, the Hinton Municipal Library will be issuing a themed Food Challenge! These will be unique and fun recipes to test your cooking prowess and baking skills. Recipes will be posted every Saturday morning at 10:00 am to our Facebook page.

To participate:

1. Make the recipe
