I try to make the kitchen a studio that acts as that same life catalyst forty years later for my family and my work. Not only do meals set the tone for the day, but they get all that "stuff" done and out of the way so that I can create, which literally feeds the cycle all over again. It's healthier. They usually involve the family helping out - choosing, making, prepping, etc. They carve out some time together not only in the making, but in the appreciation, the "sit down", the relationship building and the love that underpins it all. I have a few favourite recipes that are a hit, and I'd like to share them with you in hopes that your kitchen can become an artful extension of your Life Studio.
