holidays & recipes: happy new year 2012
We will return to our regular schedule January 4th 2012! Winter is the time of the year when we crave those rich comfort foods that make us feel like we are swaddled in a warm, fuzzy blanket of goodness. There are many other times when comfort foods are required to relax frayed nerves. Some of those stressful times are caused by the very people who are supposed to support and soothe us: our family. We all have one. We call that family member the black sheep and it is his/her’s sole purpose in life to make the rest of the family cringe. Some people may have an entire flock of black sheep and you may be the only little white lamb adrift in a sea of darkness. We ask that you share your stories, and you should have plenty after the holidays, with us and the comfort food you long to eat when you have to deal with unpleasant family matters. We can find comfort in each other’s food and stories, learning that we are not alone in dealing with our outlandish family members. And, maybe we can share a laugh or two. Comfort food, laughter and camaraderie are perhaps the best cure for many family woes. Please do not use real names.
