CELEBRATIONS was created to help us celebrate the seasons of our lives. Remember the summer fresh-garden herbs and vegetables and the familiar tastes of autumn apples from the orchard just down the road? Whisperings of winter, remind us of the cozy meals that once comforted and soothed. We need time to feast from tables set with traditions and to gather with those we love. Life's blessings are when we gather to celebrate the birth of a new baby, a graduation, a fiftieth birthday or a retirement feast. Simple, yet savory recipes that seem familiar to us from childhood are the heart of classic meals. As we savor these familiar aromas, the feelings from special gatherings from long ago are reborn, as old things become new again. When we gather with family and friends to celebrate life, it is a time of grace.
