This is dedicated to our family, who over the years have shared love, tears, hugs, fears, jokes and beers... not to mention some really great food.
For us, food is a vehicle for bonding, building relationships, creating memories and experiencing life. All of our favorite memories involve, in some way, food. When we travel, we are intentional about sharing the common culture of food with the people we meet. That has served to introduce us to foods and passions we would otherwise never have known. Similarly, when we are with friends or family, we rely on the familiar comfort foods that help us relive great memories and traditions spent with friends and family. In addition, it helps us in forging new memories to carry forward and pass on. For us, food is a common language to all people and the great force that draws us, relates us, binds us and connects us. I hope you enjoy the recipes that have become our family favorites.
