Most of our earliest memories can be grounded in family and food: loved ones gathered around the kitchen while grandma cooks up her famous fried chicken or tacos, little ones sneaking spoonfuls of cake batter while momma’s back is turned. Almost everyone can recall a favorite food memory from their childhood.
Here I have collected recipes from all over the world– from my international adventures while serving as a missionary mom– that we as a family have thoroughly enjoyed. Some of these have been handed down from grandmas from such places as Mexico and Korea. Some of the recipes are from dear friends, but the majority of them are the result of me just fiddling with ingredients and making something yummy with ingredients that we as a family enjoy.
My hope for this book is to bring to your table some of the culinary delights from places you may never be able to go. We enjoy cooking together and making memories in our kitchen. I hope and pray that you have those times with your loved ones as well.
