Easy Does It

Taste of Home - - Editor’s Letter - EMILY BETZ TYRA EDI­TOR

One year, as a sur­prise, the TOH of­fices closed early the Fri­day be­fore Me­mo­rial Day. Our col­league Jami put out the in­vite: Meet for burg­ers on her pa­tio. Jami was a new mom, and had to stop at the store on the way home, but even so, she made the burger bash seem effortless. She siz­zled the pat­ties while we played with her boys. She let us grab the pa­per plates. All that was left was open­ing a bag of chips.

En­ter­tain­ing is only as stress­ful as you let it be, es­pe­cially when you re­al­ize it’s about the fun of con­nect­ing and not the sil­ver­ware you use. Thanks for those burg­ers and the life ad­vice, Jami!

So this spring, just go for it. Do a Sun­day brunch. Pack a pic­nic. Have a friend over for a glass of some­thing cold. For that, I rec­om­mend the most re­fresh­ing spring tonic in all the land, Rhubarb Punch, page 60.

And if you need a lit­tle rea­son to say awww to­day…check out our Mom’s Fa­mous Chicken fea­ture, page 40. Th­ese guys love their ma­mas. And you will love their ma­mas’ chicken dishes. They are sim­ple, so de­li­cious and

100 per­cent rooted in love.
