I have been using Si's recipes in my family cookbook that my father's side of the family created. Si and my aunt Laurie were neighbors and friends and she included some of Si's recipes. It wasn't until last year at RootsTech that I finally learned who Si was and met her. I had heard how wonderful she was and I was hesitant to introduce myself, but she is just as kind and genuine as everyone told me. She is talented in the way she presents and shares food. She helped create, at the last minute, the wonderful food story videos for FamilySearch (found here) and even brought her famous chocolate chip cookies one day at RootsTech to share. They were really, really good and I'm a chocolate chip cookie connoisseur.
Si will be talking about how the food we eat is part of our family story and I can't wait to hear her!
FOOD + FAMILY HISTORY = PERFECTION
I love the stories our food can give. I love that while we are eating or preparing our food offers a time to share stories. As I searched back through my archives here I am so thankful for the stories the I have preserved. Here are a few examples...
It was so fun to look back and see how much food influences our lives. In fact, it has it's own category here: WHAT WE ATE and a recipe blog: SIMPLE FOOD. But there are so many delicious stories still to tell. I can't wait to share them with you or for you to get to know Si and her stories.
