Growing up in Portland, OR, our home was where people gathered. Family meals and holidays were full of traditions: lamb for Easter, chili before trick-or-treating and cracked crab on Christmas…cookies for dessert. Each season brought new flavors: Oregon berry crisps in the summer, beef stew when it snowed. It made life festive. Fun. It taught me that life should be filled with memorable celebrations that bring people together.
