I grew up the youngest of 6 in a large family. We sat down together for dinner every night. The TV would be turned off, my dad would help us wash our hands, and we'd gather together at the kitchen table to eat meals prepared by my mother. Those are the childhood memories I love the best.
Today, cooking for others with all my heart, and sharing the meal and conversation with those I love are to me some of the simplest and most fulfilling experiences of being alive. And so I share some of my favorite recipes with you in hopes that you will try a few, eat a few, share a few, and keep the love-snack wheel turning.
