    Last year at this very moment I was teaching my Sunday morning hot yoga class on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. I remember trying to prepare for the class the night before and ending up in tears because nothing that I could do or say would be enough to honor and remember those who lost [...]

    It was too much to combine the family love and food love into one post yesterday. Especially given that I whipped up the best corn bread that I ever baked. I am very fortunate to come from a family that enjoys planing and preparing meals. Growing up my dad did most of the cooking (he's [...]
