Each and every one of you receiving this email knows how passionate I am about food. Perhaps you've gotten a recipe from me, a mason jar of pesto or soup, been my guinea pig for a new dish or---not often--some baked item I've attempted to recreate from a Food and Wine magazine. I can say I am deeply satisfied from gathering, preparing, cooking and feeding all that I know and everyone I don't as to just awaken their tastebuds. Another passion of mine, a kind of sidebar that allows me to eat all that I cook, is running. So what better race to have committed to than the Run 10 Feed 10 coming up in October? What a cause, what a perfect way to give back! So if you share the same excitement I have for food, if you understand how so many don't have the means to nourish themselves, let alone to enjoy food with such pleasure and excitement, take a second to donate. I'll run the 10K, you're money goes towards meals for those who can't afford them, and I'll swing by a recipe or a new sauce next time I see you. We all win, we'll all be fed and happy. Cheers! Marisa
And yes, I had to crop my huge hair to fit this photo in to see my early love of mason jars for food.
