This time of year generally brings an end to empty nest syndrome for a lot of us. Those who have flown the nest and headed to college or have married and settled in new locales converge upon “home” for the holidays.
And who doesn’t love having the kids back home? Gathering everyone together for Chanukah, Christmas, or the New Year and cooking their favorite foods is what every empty nester loves most. Well, I certainly do, and I look forward to welcoming my daughter and son-in-law and baby grandson in from out of town, immensely. It’s the time I can dust off my food processor and rolling pin, get out the good china and glassware, set the dining room table and show off my best recipes. Some of my own, some that have been passed down from generation to generation in my family, and the new ones have been gathered over the years since I’ve been here at Mr. Food.
