  1. My birthday is January 13 so this will really be special to me this year!

  2. I forgot to bookmark this website and just found it again, so I wanted to tell you that I just love it! I don't really have anyone to "cook Catholic for" so I have to enjoy this from a little distance, but I really love the mindfulness of bringing our cooking into the liturgical year, with feasts and seasons!
