“Food connects us all to family, friends, culture, and traditions.”
This is the quote that starts off the new series, Breaking Bread with Brooke Burke. I couldn’t agree more. Especially during this time of year.
I’ve been missing my grandmother more than usual right now; it’s our second Christmas without her. As I start baking cookies and planning both a Christmas Eve and Day meal, I find myself frequently reaching for the phone to ask her a question, share a new tip, or celebrate a new kitchen triumph. Or travesty. Those happen, too. I think she’d be proud of the culinary accomplishments I’ve made since she passed away. I know she’d love her dining room suit in our dining room; we currently have the table covered in one of her Christmas tablecloths.
In the first episode of Burke’s new show, she features Florence Henderson of The Brady Bunch. Henderson then shares stories about food at a restaurant her family has come to love over the years. I love the stories that come out over food. There’s not a dinner with my family that doesn’t end up in a storytelling session, full of loud laughter and occasional name-calling. Because, you know: family. As Henderson said, “When you’re eating, defenses come down!”
I really like how Brooke Burke is merging both food and storytelling with this new show. It gives us something to connect to instead of just your typical food shows. I love storytelling!

I also love trying to say the name of the show. It’s a tongue twister. See for yourself.
So, Hallmark asked us to make our own video. Fantastic.
You can also create your own video and submit it for a chance to win some pretty snazzy prizes. Can you beat me not being able to count? Try it and see.
