Home is where the heart ought to be. But nowadays too many of us are missing the human connection and emotional replenishment that only a rewarding home life can bestow. Designer Rosanna Bowles wants to change that. In Coming Home , she shares a year-round plan for establishing traditions--and, in the process, making memories--that will restore home to its central place in your family's life. Taking her cues from the seasons' changing moods--spring's awakening, summer's vibrancy, fall's bittersweet transition, and winter's introspection--Bowles creates a calendar of activities, rituals, and celebrations that will bring you back home in the deepest and most fulfilling sense. And because the table is where family and beloved friends most often come together, she provides more than fifty favorite recipes--for simple family meals and sumptuous holiday feasts--that deliciously express each season's character.

What a disappointment! While the premise of this book is a good one -- celebrating the seasons, family, food -- the recipes are too simplistic (i.e. a "recipe" for serving hot water in a cup, no joke) and the tone is snobby without any nuance or character. I can't believe an editor allowed this to be published.
