I must admit that I love food and encourage everyone to indulge in what makes them happy.  Now, I say this with a grain of salt because if I indulged as much as I’d love to, I’d be the size of a house.  However, I also believe that food is just lovely and good food is a gift.  So within reason, enjoy your favorite dishes and recipes.  Use food as an excuse to connect with others, to show love to your family and friends, to create an environment in which others feel welcomed to indulge.  Enjoy to the fullest (again, within reason ~ I can get a bit carried away).
