Friends, do you want to WIN a beautiful 9×13 Le Creuset baking dish, and variety of Oregon Fruit Products to cook with in 2017? All the details are in this post today!

But first, as our friends and family come together around the table this holiday season, I can’t help but think of the different seasons in our lives. We’ve hosted new friends, since moving to our new home, and we’ve hosted old friends from back home. Some days are tender for some, because we all have hurts and divisions, but coming together for a meal brings a lot of healing.

The table is the place to sit side by side, look across into each other’s eyes, and lament, share stories, encourage, feel, … heal, love.

We don’t always have to agree, and as long as there is respect in our home for those around our table, it’s a privilege to open our home and to be generous to so many visitors.

And to show that we care, and that we love you!

Hosting for breakfast

Last week we hosted 2 sets of overnight company. My favorite … every morning I made breakfast, we served coffee, and we sat around the table. For hours.

What is it about being fresh in the morning, when life is new and light?

It’s my privilege to think ahead (it takes planning to host out-of-town guests), to plan food for company, whether a delicious dish like today’s recipe, an overnight Ham Breakfast Casserole, or even a stylin’ yogurt bar with Pumpkin Seed Granola :)

Red Tart Cherries

Today I’m sharing a delicious recipe made with apples and Oregon Fruit’s Red Tart Cherries. Which, by the way, there are many health benefits that align with tart cherries, and cans are available at national retailers, including Walmart.

Oregon Fruit carries many different varieties–Gooseberries, Blueberries, Red Raspberries, Blackberries, Red Sweet Cherries, and more–but my favorite are their Sweet Tart Cherries.
