Give Love for the Holidays

Aunt Ruth appreciated doing one thing at a time and keeping things simply focused.

I hope you will consider giving Loving Aunt Ruth as a Christmas or Hanukah gift to someone you love. If you do, I will give you something, because that IS the Aunt Ruth way of life!

Email me at confirming your purchase with either Amazon or Atlas books, for a PDF of 24 never-been-published recipes from Aunt Ruth’s collection.

“Everything tastes better shared,” said Aunt Ruth. 

Please consider sharing her recipes for living well and let me know which of her ingredients for eating well are YOUR favorites. My son said that anyone who receives Loving Aunt Ruth knows they are loved by the giver! 

Love is Delicious!  Serve it up this Holiday Season!  
Eat, drink, and be Merry!  
L'Chaim to Latkes for Love!

(In Aunt Ruth’s spirit of giving, a portion of every sold book is donated to

Make A Wish

I asked Aunt Ruth how she would like to be remembered.  
She said, “I would like to be remembered as a nice, generous, and loving person.”  
I am remembering her exactly as she wished I would. 

Today, May 10, is Aunt Ruth’s 95th birthday, and thanks to all of you who have followed our blog these last 4+ years until the release of our book, I know there is a heavenly celebration. As Aunt Ruth said, 

“Every birthday is important!
I believe you should share them with as many people as you can afford to feed.” 

So, put on your party hat.  
Toot a horn.  
Make a wish.  

Be Aunt Ruth today and fill your house with friends, because “Everything tastes better shared.”

Aunt Ruth and I talked a lot about being generous, kind, and loving.  Now that Loving Aunt Ruth: Recipes for a Well-Lived Life is close to being released, I wanted to share some of my conversations with Aunt Ruth.  

Aunt Ruth's love transcends time.
