Starting April 1, there's a new schedule for food trucks in the Boston area. You'll find debut businesses like Mei Mei Street Kitchen, run by three siblings and offering "creative Chinese-American cuisine made from locally sourced, sustainable ingredients." And Boston Speed Dog, once serving the area's best hot dog in off-the-beaten-path Newmarket Square, makes its wares much more accessible, showing up all over town.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at recipebox@globe.com.
