Issue 15: Triumph

July 18th, 2014

Sometimes just getting dinner made is a triumph. Luckily, Erin Gleeson of The Forest Feast serves up a simple salad to solve summer meal-time woes. Stacy Ladenburger takes us to her favorite restaurant Marie Catrib’s where the owner shared her triumphant spirit through amazing food like her renowned Hummingbird Cake. Diane Ruggie shares letters her parents sent to one another while her father was serving in WWII, including a recipe for her mom’s victory garden–inspired bread and butter pickles. That’s just a taste of the stories, recipes, tips + tidbits in this issue.
