Sweet Holiday Recipe Offerings from your friends at Symphony Linden

By | For Our Friends | No Comments

Think back to the last time you ate your favorite food. How did it make you feel? Eating is one of the greatest pleasures in life. Diving into a plate of Mom’s lasagna or devouring a freshly-baked chocolate chip cookie can be a real joy, something that makes life seem full and wonderful. Did you know there are actually foods that are scientifically shown to lift spirits?

Our relationship with food is so much more than just a need for calories. The fact that we even have a “relationship” with food is telling enough.
