Celebrating Food From Seed To Table

Sometimes it feels like making dinner is just another thing on our never ending to-do list. Sharing a meal together as a family at home is becoming less common as schedules become busier and busier.

There is something special about sharing a meal with friends and family- it brings people together. Hospitality can be as simple as brewing some coffee to share with a friend, or making an elaborate dinner party for a group. This blog is a place where this will be celebrated. I will share some of my favorite recipes, stories of meals shared with the people I love, and even some tips on growing your own food. Join me in my journey of cultivating hospitality.

    Friendsgiving was wonderful this year. Great food, great friends, great conversation. I went to bed that night with a full belly and a full heart. The next morning we woke up and went to church where I heard a song that brought me to tears because it spoke so closely to my heart, and the… Read more
