If you’re anything like me, you have about 5,000 lbs of zucchini and squash stashed away in the bottom drawer of your refrigerator right about now.
Not that I’m complaining.
The one good thing I have come to love about living in the country is the fact that my brother-in-law plus half of our neighbors grow their own gardens and, apparently, they grow an over abundance of beautiful, fresh produce that they then insist on giving to us.
Amber Forbes is from Charleston, SC, and is currently battling a craniopharyngioma brain tumor. She holds a BFA in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and her award winning recipes have been featured on the Today Show, Cosmopolitan, SELF, CountryLiving, Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, Our State magazine, and more. She credits her creativity to her “cuisine gene,” and she aims to develop ministry meals which are quick, healthy, and fun to pull together for friends and family facing trying seasons in life.
Diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2015, God handed me a big ole basket of sour lemons, but I didn’t let it bring me down. Instead, I made a batch of lip smacking lemonade and a southern sweet pound cake to share with family and friends. Pull up a chair and join me on my journey as I make easy party foods, quick weeknight dinners, and comforting ministry meals that feed the souls of others.
