Food is just so powerful.
When I smell basil, it brings me back to picking the leaves with my dad and just the memory of pesto. Every Labor Day weekend my mom would go to the Farmer’s Market and get batches and batches of basil.

The holidays are about where you feel safe and the most loved.
A lot of my best memories of the holidays are centered around my grandmother. The smell of my grandmother's pie takes me back to the joyful moments of my childhood. The nutmeg, the cinnamon, the brown sugar. My grandmother's pie just felt like a hug.
