Deena Livingston leaves behind a broken romance and her chef job in Atlanta to spend time at her grandfather's cabin in the mountains of North Carolina. But her grandfather has an odd request: he wants Deena to teach cooking classes to the ragtag group of middle-schoolers who attend the local afterschool program, The Center. Reluctantly, Deena agrees, but how is she supposed to convince these kids that cooking at home is better than eating at McDonalds? And after all she went through in Atlanta, why is she attracted to Zack, the social worker at The Center? Can a Dr. Seuss-quoting plumber, a curly-haired basketball player, and a group of middle-schoolers change Deena's outlook on life?
Alice J. Wisler is an author, public speaker, advocate, and fundraiser.

Ronna LMarylandAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love and forgiveness through cooking!!March 30, 2013Ronna LMarylandAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What happens to us when someone we love betrays us? Is the "love of your life" also the center of your life? What does it mean to really forgive someone? If we are also ruled by our own self images, and accident or illness changes that image, can we still go on? Can anyone love us again? Or more importantly, can we forgive ourselves and find true love again? Have you ever considered the real source of all love?
These questions are explored in this serious, but extremely fun and enjoyable novel about a young woman who leaves her top chef job in Atlanta, Georgia, to live in her recently deceased uncle's cabin in the hills of North Carolina. After a car accident where Deena is left with disfiguring scars, and a cheating fiancÃÂ©, who left her for someone else, Deena is ready to leave her old life to "get away from it all", including her many new fears.
The cabin, away from everything and everyone, sounds like the perfect answer, but her uncle's will stipulated that Deena must teach cooking to a group of middle-schoolers in the local church for six months, if she is to continue to own his cabin. She also meets a friendly mentally retarded 'wise' man, a group of abused and neglected children, a handsome social worker, and a slew of her father's relatives who envelop Deena into their close knit family and community.
Deena's cooking classes require her to get involved. This story beautifully shows that forgiveness is something we do for ourselves, and that real love and friendship comes from our own choices and trust in God. A lovely, truthful and uplifting story!! Fun, quick, thoughtful, read!!
