Food, Family, and Friends

Feasts From the Pantry, A Celebration of Food, Family, and Friends is the name of a cookbook compiled in 1986 by owner Sharon Antoniak.  The book will be available for purchase soon.

“When I think back over the past years I find many of my thoughts go to family gatherings around a table with the sights and smells of wonderful food and the sounds of laughter and loved ones voices. The recipes in this cookbook are a collection of family recipes. Each one having a memorable story or recollection behind it.  After all, aren’t the happiest times in life the times we have broken bread with family and friends, and shared our hearts around that table. I hope these recipes bring you the comfort, joy, and great fellowship with those you love as they have brought to me. ”


Have you ever heard words to “perfectly” describe something? So simple, you wonder why you didn’t think of it.

Many times, Tim and I have invited people into our home for a cooking class or prepared a meal that would possibly be served to guests for a special event at a later date. People have walked in our door as strangers, but always left as friends. We have shared a meal together and have taken the time out of our busy lives to get to know one another a little better. Our paths may never cross again, but the moments we shared were a blessing.

I saw the “perfect words” for me today. “Love people. Cook some tasty food.” This is why Feasts from the Pantry exists! My passion for cooking continues to thrive because of the people I am blessed to serve.

For those of you Tim and I have met and served, THANK YOU! Those of you we have yet to meet, I look forward to sharing a meal and our time together getting to know you a little better.
