Food can be a great way to bring the past back to life. You can literally smell and taste what your ancestors experienced when you cook using the same recipes they cooked with. When you cook for your children and grandchildren, make sure they know the history of your family's recipes; who made the dish in the past and some details about that person's life. And if there are any entertaining stories about how or when the food was used before, or who ate it, be sure to share those. Food is always a great incentive to spend time together.

Thoughts of baking, yummy smells, and cozy nights are on our minds.
