    Wake Up Call - Stephanie's Story

    Wake Up Call - Stephanie's Story

    Stephanie O’Brien’s cancer diagnosis five years ago was, according to her, an awakening.  Her response to her dis-ease (as she now refers to it) was immediate changes to how she was living her life.  Those changes included what she ate, who she hung out with and how she moved through her days.  She transformed … into living her life authentically and living with purpose. She learned so much and she now experiences MAGIC all around her!  Her story is beautiful as well as inspiring and you can hear it for yourself in this episode of the FoodLife podcast. Thanks for sharing Stephanie 😊 . xo @donnabrittcooks

    Move That Mountain - Lessons From A Mustard Seed

    Move That Mountain - Lessons From A Mustard Seed

    Ok, this episode all started when I found the small mustard seed pendant that my Granny gave me when I was a little girl.  I’ve had this little charm tucked in a jewelry box for decades, moving it back and forth across the country several times yet somehow not losing it!  I’ve never worn it, until now! In this episode I tell the story behind the gift from my grandmother and how it connects to a recent birthday gift from a best friend … and how that all leads to a Bible parable and a pickle recipe from Mother Maybelle Carter!!  I hope you have as much fun listening as I do telling you this tale! xo @donnabrittcooks

    View From The Top

    View From The Top

    A view from the top of the Empire State Building reminded me of how important it is to get some ‘altitude’ in life sometimes!  It’s easy for me to get wrapped up in the small stuff – to lose sight of the ‘forest for the trees’.

    How can I (we) rise above things and get that needed altitude? Join me in this FoodLife episode and we’ll talk that out. 😊  Oh and we’ll make some homemade Latin Hot Pockets --  EMPANADAS – inspired by the ones I got from Empanada Mama’s in NYC.  

    This is my first time to make them and it was way easier than I thought it would be, so I know that you can do it too.  xo @donnabrittcooks

    Borders, Boundaries and Braised Pork Bowls

    Borders, Boundaries and Braised Pork Bowls

    This is NOT a political podcast HOWEVER in this episode, we will
    converse a bit about borders (immigration), boundaries (as in personal boundaries), and talk about how “food is our common ground” (to quote James Beard). You’ll hear more of my conversation with Izabela Wojcik from the James Beard House. Izabela
    immigrated from Poland as a child and she shares her unique perspective on
    immigration and believes in “diplomacy through food”. We also dive into the wonderful thing that can happen when cultures collide – the fusion of delicious foods! You’ll get the recipe for my favorite homemade fusion dish – Braised Pork Bowls. And I’ll share a few tips on how to establish and maintain healthy interpersonal boundaries because healthy boundaries make for healthy relationships. xo @donnabrittcooks

    Good Food For Good: Interview with Izabela Wojcik

    Good Food For Good: Interview with Izabela Wojcik

    This is my first podcast featuring an interview and I’m so excited to share it with you!  I’m talking with Izabela Wojcik from the James Beard House in NYC. She’s the person who’s in charge of finding all the great chefs who get to cook their food at the House and she’s also one of the most open-hearted, loving people I’ve ever met.  In this episode Izabela talks about immigrating from Poland as a child, giving up on a childhood dream, how food TV changed her relationship with her father and she also shares some quick pro tips for fast, nourishing family dinners. I love spending time with this great lady who literally gives the best hugs ever !!   By the way, if you don’t know who James Beard is or what his House is all about, you’ll learn about that too … thanks for listening. xo @donnabrittcooks

Like sitting down for a chat with an old friend

Listening to Donna is literally like sitting down at the kitchen table with an old friend and having a chat. She is so uplifting and wise and I love her storytelling. Great and do-able recipes, too!

Inspirational Friend To Cook With

I listened tonight for a recipe and ended up cooking with Donna and feeling inspired. Her frank and real subjects are exactly the kind of conversation that should happen over a glass of wine, while preparing food. Brave thoughts from a genuinely real and caring person. Thanks Donna and you will be my new cooking companion each week!
