Reposting this from 2013 when I started the CookWith project. This still resonates with me deeply as the way I approach cooking as a way to heal and hold people together. I also thought it is a timely reminder for this season of friendship, sharing, offering and receiving. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
