There is a method to my madness in this space, and it’s this; Life in Pleasantville is and always will be a record of my time here for my daughters. Yes, I write with you in mind, but ultimately this is where I hope my children will come to find that favourite recipe I used to make them, or find one of my Mom’s best recipes or to look up a vacation memory. I hope that one day they’ll add to this online journal for their own children. Pretty deep for sharing my mom’s Best Date Squares recipe, isn’t it? But food has that power over us doesn’t it? To evoke strong emotions and bring back a flood of memories.
Part of being a Life Made Delicious ambassador means I get to share some of the very best recipes that make it so. My mom’s dates squares, much like her butter tarts, are one of those recipes that makes me think of her and all the love she poured into the kitchen everyday. I wonder what recipes my children will feel that way about? Maybe someday they’ll tell us right here in Pleasantville.
