I Love You So Much (With Food)

foodI just finished a segment on Iowa Public Radio with that awesome blossom Charity Nebbe. She and I and a passel of other guests discussed recipes we pass through the generations.

It was a really great talk, but I left wanting more.

Now, more than ever, we need to share the warmth and love of our old recipes, passed down with generosity of spirit by our grandmothers, our aunts, our neighbors, our dear friends.

Food can heal, and home-made food is a powerful peacemaker. Another guest, Beth Howard, is doing that right now, as she bakes pies for the grieving residents of Newtown.

Will you share with us what you’re cooking or baking this holiday season? How will you pass the love along this year, through the nurturing spirit of food?

And if you’re inspired, snap a pic of that recipe card with your cell phone. I’ll put it up here on the blog, too.

I’ll leave you with a quote from Judy Stark, another guest on today’s show:

“Serve these recipes with a smile, a servant’s heart, and unconditional love.”
