I wish you were sitting at my kitchen table and I was feeding you! But you're not, so these recipes will have to do.

I am a fifty-one-year-old wife and mother of four and I have been cooking for them for twenty-nine years. The youngest is just off to college (actually, she set this up and got it started), so I need to share my cooking with someone.

My husband and I have always felt dinnertime is an important time to gather at the day's end to converse and share the events of the day. Our hope for you is that you would make regular time with family and friends to gather around your table to gain sustenance from both the food and the fellowship.
