As we get ready to say goodbye to 2012, I have been reflecting on all the wonderful food that graced our table week after week — the recipes my family asked for time and again and which will most certainly be making more appearances in the New Year.

Food nourishes not only our bellies, but our souls. Like traditions or laughter, it is something that forever binds families together. It provides us with indelible memories and makes us nostalgic as we get older. Here are just a few of the recipes that have become favorites in my home. Hopefully they will in yours as well.

  1. Such a bummer so many of these include eggs, dairy, or wheat. We can’t eat any of those things, even though I know kids love those things. I hope one day there will be websites that include kid meals that don’t include those things!
