Creating Memories Through Food

Creating Memories Through Food
What do you remember most about the holidays? The company of family and friends, the gifts. And the food. We have long since associated fond memories with food. Food has a way of bringing us together—no matter what your background is.

I am certainly looking forward to the Holidays. I happen to be doing all the cooking this year. Then again—I did it for the past three years! But that's okay. I enjoy doing it. I enjoy the preparation, the cooking, the baking. I especially love the satisfied look on family and friends faces when they sit down and fill their bellies. And fill the atmosphere with laughter, singing, and stories of past holidays spent together.

I'm certain there are some fond memories that you have. Does a memory come to you when you eat a certain food? Does that sweet potato pie remind you of your childhood? Do the collard greens remind you of your grandmother? Does that piece of fried chicken bring a smile to your face?

One of the greatest joys that I have is, sharing. And I'd love nothing more than to share with you the recipes that bring back very fond memories for me and my family.

Here's to an awesome Thanksgiving. Wishing you much love and joy...and full bellies!
