There are few things that bring family together like food. On holidays & special occasions our tables are packed with so much delicious food. Quite possibly these are the fondest memories we cherish. Not because the food was so good but because the company was grand. The food is not always perfect but memories are cherished for years to come. I am proud to slave over my stove or oven to produce something my family will love. I am proud to be a cook. And I thank all the people at all recipes for sharing your recipes, tips, and tricks that makes it even more special around our dining room table.
