When we used my mother’s family silverware, I always thought of the seven years during World War II that those forks and spoons spent deep in a hole in the backyard, hidden from harm. And I imagined the first dinner after the war, when it was dug up, polished, and set at a peaceful table. Take a walk through your home, collect the knick-knacks that hold stories about your travels or celebrations, and gather them on your table for an evening of storytelling.

This is so much more than a cookbook. It does have recipes, but it also has great suggestions, quotes and traditions. I’m hoping to have a review and giveaway up later this week.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Play along. The rules are easy and I only cheated a little. Grab your current read, open to a random page, and give us two teaser sentences. Remember, no spoilers.

I received my copy from the publisher for review and the above is my honest opinion. I am an Amazon associate.
