Welcome to Lynchburg Mama!

And let me offer lesson number one about America: All great change in America begins at the dinner table. Ronald Reagan

Welcome to Lynchburg Mama! One thing has been consistent in my life – eating at the dinner table. It’s a tradition that I watched begin to fade when I was growing up in the 80’s and 90’s. People began replacing conversation and family time for TV screens. Today, we can add cellphones and tablets to that list. I’m on a mission to bring change back to our lives by bringing America back to the dinner table — one dish at a time!
