This blog... a compilation of my favorite recipes. They have been collected over several years found in various places: the internet, magazines, and cookbooks to name a few. These recipes are meals that I consider to "feed more than your body". These are meals that I hope nurish the heart and soul of those who eat them. I hope that when you have cleaned your plate, you feel like you have taken part in more than just a meal-that you have taken part in something bigger than yourself and food. Whether it is culture, your local place of living, or the life of the plant or those who share this planet, I hope these meals help your family-and mine-to appreciate that we are more than just beings consuming food; we are all connected. And more than that, I hope that these meals help you remember how fortunate you are and that "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.".

Peachy Iced Tea Sangria

4 herbal peach tea bags
4 teaspoons sugar
1 cup orange juice
2 peaches, sliced
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blueberries

Make herbal tea using 2 cups boiling water and soaking tea bags for 5 minutes. Add sugar to hot tea concentrate and stir until sugar is dissolved. Transfer concentrated tea to a container. Add 2 cups of cold water. Add remaining ingredients and let sit in fridge for an hour. Serve over ice.

**Note-you can serve this using any combination of fruit that you like. I've used a few cups of frozen mixed fruit and let it defrost in the tea in the fridge while the flavors meld.
