My family-in-law lost their home in the recent fires in Santa Rosa; they have been staying with us and our house hasn't felt as alive and vibrant as now.
It's been a week now, and inevitably my mind has been trying to weed out the bad memories from the good ones. While doing it so, I realized that many of the best memories are cooking-related. My nieces have been having a great time learning how to make cookies, Hello Kitty pancakes, and even paella! We're starting to build our own experiences in the kitchen, and I hope they will get kept alive in their minds.
I truly believe that food brings people together, especially home-made food as it provides a special source of comfort and warmth within our hearts.
What are your favorite cooking-related memories?
