Every Recipe has a Story
One thing I have learned through the years is that quilts, recipes, AND people all have stories. And discovering those stories is what endears them to us and causes us to love them all the more.
I have shared some of the stories behind the recipes in this book with you. And I confess, some took me on a stroll down memory lane and made me smile, laugh and cry. How can a simple recipe hold so much impact? I’m not sure I have the answer, I only know that it can. I hope you will take these recipes and laugh along with me as you read. Then make them your own as you feed and nourish both the body and soul of those you love!
I lovingly dedicate this cookbook to Rick, my husband of 46 years, who has never once complained of anything I have cooked for him, even when the results were less than desirable! And to my four sons, Craig, Nathan, Aaron and Jonathan, who were the taste testers and guinea pigs all through their growing-up years. I love these five guys with all my heart. Even now, one of my greatest joys is to cook for them and their families when they come home. Our desire is that you will enjoy making and serving these dishes and create some special family memories of your own!

What Our Guests Say
Quilting Friends from Zanesville, Ohio
Our group has been coming to “Seams Like Home” for over 10 years now experiencing the delicious meals served here. A group of us quilters were on a bus trip in Pennsylvania and stopped at the quilt shop, Sew Special, in downtown Uniontown in 2010, when Donna told us about their new retreat,
“Seams Like Home.” We were the first group of quilters to book a retreat there. We loved the idea that meals were included and we only had to pack our sewing “stuff!”
The food was delicious and very well presented. Donna and Rick have always been willing to share their recipes and gather feedback after each meal over the years.
Now we are really excited about all of them being published in one cookbook. Stella loves the Baked Oatmeal, and her family knows it will be served every Christmas morning for brunch. Charlotte enjoys making the Italian Wedding Soup for family gatherings at her house. Barbara keeps the Taco
Salad recipe handy because after a family gathering, everyone asked for the recipe. All the meals there have been absolutely delicious, very nutritious and a great variety. Rick has even grilled out for us and built a fire to roast marshmallows to make s’mores. We always look forward to our next trip
and the new recipes in store for us!
