About “Recipes For Risk”

There is a call on your life, and it’s not to be comfortable.

There is a voice in all of us that asks, “Is there more to life than just having more stuff, vacations, and leisure?” When we aren’t living a life of meaning, we distract ourselves with pleasure and feel empty.

Recipes for Risk is the moving story of a comfortable suburban mom who stepped out of her comfort zone and found meaning by stepping into the pain of kids in foster care. It is part Julie’s memoir and part cookbook from a young man who aged out of foster care – and how cooking together brought healing and built trust.

Some of the recipes are very simple to try and others will challenge you to put a bit more love and time into learning a new technique to create something scrumptious.

This book will encourage you to open a bottle of wine. Connect with your family, laugh, be grateful and consider making a meal and making room for one more at your table. Recipes for Risk will inspire you to step out of your comfort into a life of meaning.
