On this website, you’ll find books, videos, meditations, and information that can help you navigate challenges and create positive changes. Let’s ride life’s waves together, Spiritual Surfer.
Cherries in Winter: My Family’s Recipe for Hope in Hard Times (Random House)
“Perfectly in sync with today’s tough times… Cherries in Winter illustrates the difference between being broke and poor, using recipes as well as family wisdom to show that when poverty looms, your best weapon may be a well-nourished soul.” —People Magazine
After being laid off in the financial crash, Suzan Colón began making her Nana’s “sturdy food” recipes as a way to economize. What she found by cooking them with her mother was a rich history of inspiration. Cherries in Winter reminds us that courage, as well as joy, is bred right in our bones. Available in hardcover, audiobook, and paperback version (contains bonus chapters).
