Thanksgiving Traditions: A Celebration of Family and Food

Turkey and Ham
Carved ham and turkey, dressing, gravy and other covered dishes make a feast-worthy Thanksgiving buffet. 

Growing up, Thanksgiving was always an exciting holiday. Both my parents’ families are large, and each year we would alternate which side to spend it with – the Faulks in Macon (my dad’s family) or the Coopers in Augusta (my mom’s family). No matter where we were, two things were always constant: lots of good food and togetherness. Continue reading “Thanksgiving Traditions: A Celebration of Family and Food”

The Pat Conroy Cookbook is more than just that. It’s a virtual ‘Ode to Joy.’ Read it; cook from it. You will eat better than you ever have in your life, and will know more about Pat Conroy, perhaps, than he would ever tell you.” – Anne Rivers Siddons

The news of author Pat Conroy’s death just yesterday evening (March 4, 2016), has wrecked me. Pancreatic cancer took him from us at the age of 70.
