Happy Easter, everyone! We all come across people in our lives that we know are supposed to be there.

Nostalgia and Food

As I am beginning to cook more and more, I realize certain foods make me feel nostalgic.  A perfect example is the Maw-Maw Soup I featured a few posts back, “A Warm and Fuzzy Moment”.  Certain foods just bring back memories.  Sometimes it’s not just the food itself, but the way that it is prepared…like…
