Recipes for the Holidays at Home

Another good thing cancelled – this time Good Friday (and Family Day on Monday). Whether you’re shacked up alone, with roommates, or a houseplant you never named until now, here are some things you can make to brighten up this pandemic-themed staycation.

Let’s be truthful. There’s no point in pretending things are fine and normal right now – they’re not, the world is in crisis. Acknowledging and “sitting with” that reality is okay, we don’t have to be 100% right now. Adapting and adjusting to this strange new normal as best we can, is the only option we’re left with.

We wanted to share a few recipes with you for the long weekend ahead. Cooking something mindfully, whether for yourself or someone else, might offer you some sweet relief.
