Eat. Share. Love.
In times past it's easy to forget the long hours spent in the kitchen. Now it's so easy to pick up dinner that only has to be put in the microwave, or a takeaway that can be delivered straight to our doorstep. Don't get me wrong my family had its fair share of takeout, but, if I'm honest, the ones that will stick out most are the home-cooked dinners with family and friends. It was always so natural. Countless times were spent at my grandparent's house, and many more with my parents and brother. Then we got older and our schedules changed at home. We didn't do those kinds of things anymore, and we stopped eating together. When I look back, I wish we hadn't exchanged our busy lives for a meal together. My hope is that families cherished those times more. It's sacred - or so it should be.

I love to see families gather together. My greatest wish is that cooking would cease to be a lost art, that the dining room table would become the focus of family time.
My goal here is to inspire you to eat with someone. Schedule Friday as Date Night, or have a day in with the family. The world is better with other people, especially ones you care about! I'm also a big advocate of cooking from scratch, and even if that isn't your forte I challenge you to give it a try. Pick something simple - soup or salad with lots of veggies.
Throughout the month we'll help you on that journey - we might post a recipe, an inspiring food story or photos from the kitchen. Also check out the events page where we invite you to be a part of our dinner. Whatever it is, we hope you stick around. Welcome to Kindred Suppers.
