"Like me, Danielle Kartes realizes that food is the great connector―a conduit to bring people together around the table and create new memories." ―Rachael Ray

With a focus on hearth, home, family, and connecting with the people you love, Danielle's from-the-heart creations will help you build memories around the table that last a lifetime.
"It's my hope that you will find something to love within these pages―that one of my recipes will become your own memorized specialty that you'll add or take away an ingredient or two to create your own perfect meal. And I hope that meal―your meal―will be enjoyed for years to come by people you love. I want you to feel amazing each time you make it.
Truth be told, that's the beautiful thing about food. I believe that when heart, soul, and creativity are interjected into a recipe, no two people will ever make it the same. Every meal is uniquely yours." ―Danielle Kartes
