Hi All - My name is Elayne Prechtel.  Welcome to this "life-giving" project of mine. 

Several years back, I haphazardly began building a legacy cookbook from scratch for my three kiddos. It wasn't the typical, run of the mill, cookbook.  It included so much more than recipes. 

Stories, life lessons and photos filled the artistically-crafted pages, all the while being infused with this girl's love of service, country life, family and community. 

I didn't realize when starting the book writing adventure that it would morph from a personal pet project for my kids into a community mission of "Sharing Life, Love and Food" through insightful gatherings, classes and events - all designed to spark inspiration and empower folks to lead an open-hearted life where people and community come first, no matter how beautiful or messy life gets.  This project has been life giving beyond belief not only to my heart but all the lives it has touched over the years.

Thanks from the bottom of my heart for joining in on this mission.  Pull up a seat and enjoy this small slice of "soul-filled living" with good food, friends and people. 

Much Love,
