Ruth and I talked a lot about being generous, kind, and loving.  Now that Loving Aunt Ruth: Recipes for a Well-Lived Life is close to being released, I wanted to share some of my conversations with Aunt Ruth.

    Aunt Ruth is committed to friends and family.  I am lucky to have enjoyed holidays, birthdays, and ordinary days with Aunt Ruth.  She taught me to make my home a welcoming place with something in the freezer just in case!  Aunt Ruth believed that everything tastes better shared.
