From the mother of Grammy Award winning singer Michael W. Smith, make your friends and family feel welcome, one meal at a time.

"Welcome to my home as we share life and laughter around the table. It means sharing my life in such a way that there is always room for one more."–Barbara Smith

Some people naturally have the gift of hospitality, instinctively creating inviting, mouth-watering meals and a warm environment that assures guests, “We’re glad you’re here.” Fortunately, says food expert Barbara Smith, the rest of us have the same potential to make guests feel nurtured, and here she offers an unforgettable treasury of recipes, tips, and how-to’s for everyone with the spiritual gift of hospitality–and for the rest of us who want to look like we do.

In Food That Says Welcome you’ ll learn to:

· Make welcoming food that is healthy and easy to prepare.
· Create an atmosphere that says to your guests, “You are special.”
· Make hospitality your ministry and service.

Learn what makes Barbara Smith’s meals and outreach so rave-worthy and discover how you can invoke the same spirit of hospitality in your own home and kitchen.

About the Author:

BARBARA SMITH is a former professional caterer and author of Cooking with Smitty’ s Mom. She and her husband of nearly five decades, Paul, reside in Franklin, Tennessee with where she cooks and entertains for countless family and friends, including son Michael and eight grandchildren. She attends The People’s Church and serves in their Room at the Inn ministry.

From Publishers Weekly:

Hospitality is a spiritual gift, according to this beginner-level, Christian-themed cookbook, but it can also be learned. Smith, a former caterer, shares the recipes she has made for family, friends and church gatherings. Beginning each chapter with a personal reminiscence and a Bible quote, Smith emphasizes her religious orientation and traditional values. Her culinary aesthetic is equally conservative, hearkening back at times to the 1960s. Smith reports that she is acquainted with the Bush family, and her convenience-oriented, anachronistic but crowd-pleasing cuisine resembles that of Ariel de Guzman's recent Bush Family Cookbook. Salads include both green and gelatinous creations; soups are as straightforward as Tomato-Basil Bisque and as exotic as Chicken Pot Pie Soup. Entrées are old-fashioned American favorites (Ham Loaf) or inauthentic versions of international dishes (Ravioli Lasagna; marmalade-sweetened Mandarin Chicken). There are also chapters devoted to nonalcoholic drinks, appetizers, brunch, breads and dessert. Many ingredients can be found in cans and packets, and Smith helpfully supplies a grocery list and pantry checklist for every recipe. While this work won't seem particularly welcoming to serious foodies or, for that matter, nonbelievers, it may offer inspiration to some. (Mar.)
