Stefanie has been the cookbook buyer at Bookshop Santa Cruz for over 25 years and credits her love of good food (and good times) to being born in New Orleans. Her favorite thing in the world is to cook for family and friends.
As a crafter, a mother, and a faithful reader of the author’s blog (soulemama.com), I loved Amanda Blake Soule’s previous books, The Creative Family and Handmade Home, and eagerly looked forward to her latest. Soule has the loveliest way of capturing the joys and challenges of being a parent, of staying connected to (and being inspired by) the natural world, and of finding your place in the world. All of that is on full display in The Rhythm of Family. Following the course of a year through the passing of the seasons, this book explores the ways we can create deep family connections and meaningful memories through living in tune with the cycles of nature.
