Cozy hospitality

I like to think of it as cozy hospitality—being friendly, kind, generous—providing a warm space for our neighbors and friends. Of course that means family, too. Always family.

“That house was…’a perfect house, whether you like food or sleep, or story-telling or singing, or just sitting and thinking best, or a pleasant mixture of them all’. Merely to be there was a cure for weariness, fear, and sadness.” — J.R.R. Tolkien

Hospitality is not always cooking up a big meal. It can be as easy as inviting people in for dessert.

For fall or winter, we love this Easy Pear Cobbler recipe. My mom made a lot of cobblers with this simple method. (My mother had a very quiet, beautiful, soulful way of showing hospitality).

Melt the butter in the pan while you’re mixing up the batter.

Pour the batter in the pan over the melted butter.

Pour the fruit on top and bake.

The beauty of hospitality

I’ve written for years (here and in my book 10 years ago (wow!), The Reluctant Entertainer), that we should never say, hospitality just isn’t my gift. Nope, don’t agree with that. That is a whopping excuse.

We are all called to live hospitable lives. And here’s the beauty of hospitality—you take it with you everywhere you go. It is not just hosting in your home.

What is hygge?

Traveling? My husband and I are headed to Berlin, Denmark, and Norway this week. I can’t wait to experience European hospitably, specifically hygge, in Denmark. The Danish people are great when it comes to getting cozy and practicing hospitality.

Hygge translates to a sense of comfort, togetherness, and well-being. It’s the “art of creating intimacy” or “coziness of the soul” or “taking pleasure from the presence of soothing things,” and my favorite … “cozy togetherness.”

To sum it up, hospitality means being present, keeping things simple, focusing on gratitude, and savoring the simple pleasures in life.

Having people over for dessert for our family is a simple pleasure. It doesn’t cost a lot of money, it just takes a little time.

Serve just dessert

This week on our back deck, we’re inviting friends over for dessert.

Serving “just dessert” is super easy. Bring out your favorite drinks, make 1 simple dessert, and create a cozy space where you can get to know people more.
