Welcome to Cravings Cookbook Season Three! I am soooo happy to have you back (or joining us for the first time)! Since the birth of Cravings—which feels like 10,000 lifetimes ago—so much has happened: babies have come, career and life paths have zigzagged like wild tributaries. Not to mention the country itself, which has been through the RINGER. We’ve all been through the ringer. A nation divided, friends and families torn apart by fundamental differences. But there has been one constant: one thing has kept me sane, kept us happy, and kept us together—a damn good meal with the ones we care about.
Family (in whatever form that takes for each of us) is more important than ever, and we’ve gotten to see firsthand how crucial love is to our everyday existence. For far longer than anyone would have thought, human interactions were replaced with Zoom calls, and hugs became double- tapped hearts on Instagram. But mannnn, am I lucky that the act of creating a meal, whether it’s for yourself or your people, is a passion for so many of you out there! Every day—Every. Single. Day.—you tag me on posts showing the world something you’ve cooked, and I see how you love to cook as much as I do, and it inspires me. You have no idea!
Look, I know what we write in books is supposed to be able to withstand the test of time, and hopefully by the time you read this, the pandemic is just a bad memory, but I’d be insane not to address the incredible, heartbreaking time we have just been through. People have passed. People have suffered. There has been so much loss. We have all had to cope with this thing in one way or another, and many of us did it alone.
If there is any silver lining, during this time when we’ve been stuck inside, we’ve learned an incredible amount about ourselves and others, and we’ve learned about what we need and what and who we love. Whereas before we barreled ahead without pausing, now we’re lucky to even see our people. Although impromptu dinner parties with friends have seemed like a relic of the past for so long, I also had a chance to realize that they will come back and we will appreciate them more than ever.
For over a year, I have found comfort in, well, comfort. “Comfort food” used to sound like a cliché, but those dishes and that idea have meant so much to me this past year. Cravings, by nature, are timely. They are urges. Moments. But comfort, hopefully, lasts. The recipes we have created for this book are meant to be a cookable arsenal to hold on to forever.
Without a doubt, I have just lived through a period more transformative than I could have ever imagined. We lived through personal trauma, with the loss of our unborn baby, Jack. And that turned a very private journey into personal love and acceptance of life and all of its wild, horrific, beautiful ups and downs. So many of you stood by us during that time! I cannot thank you enough. This journey changed me in ways nothing e
