Orange and Red Salad with Cumin Vinaigrette

As women, doesn’t it seem as though so many of our conversations revolve around food? Invariably, when we get together with girlfriends, female co-workers, and women family members, the topic turns to cuisine. We love to share “fast and easy” recipes, our favorite great-grandmother’s old world entree, the best restaurants in town – and we love to dish about diets.

Many of our fondest memories revolve around the kitchen table. How many times did an aroma bring you back to a trip with college friends or your first date, or made you think of being in your grandmother’s kitchen baking sugar cookies? Meals have a special way of bonding us to one another. In fact, Jesus spent His last evening here on earth breaking bread with His disciples – his closet and most loved ones.

John 6:47-48

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life. I am the bread of life”.

Heirlooms is a cookbook written by the women from our community, where they share some of their most favorite recipes with all of Sheologie to take and make in their homes.
