ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Everything we cook is a series highlighting family recipes that have special meaning for you, our readers and listeners. Earlier this year, we asked you to share your favorite recipes and explain why these dishes evoke such fond family memories. Working with NPR member stations, we received responses from across the country. We’ve interviewed some backers and will continue to share their stories throughout the holiday season. All recipes and photos were provided by NPR audience members.
