Indulge me, I have to post today, but I don't have time to upload the pictures to go with the recipe I had planned to share. I was feeling a little bit homesick, like cold snowy Canada homesick, homemade cookies and grandma's chicken dinner homesick. I'm planning on making my mom's butter tarts this year for the first time. Because they're my favorite holiday recipe and I want to share it with my kids. One bite transports me to every new year in my memory.
So I want to hear from you. What's your favorite holiday food. What evokes memories of people living and passed, and the warm memories of families together.
I've already told you mine, add to that baked apples over a winter fire.
I'm fascinated by the way food speaks to our hearts as well as our stomachs, how certain scents feel like home, or take us to far away exotic places, or bring back memories of a special occasion.
