I know we are in ‪#‎Lent‬ now, but I just have to share this post with you. On Monday’s show… I brought you along with me to New Orleans for the Thoth parade for an on-the-street experience of Mardi Gras in New Orleans. We talk Lundi Gras (Fat Monday) and ‪#‎MardiGras‬ (Fat Tuesday). You get to peek behind the scenes of how the Mardi Gras floats are made, and find out what you absolutely need to know to parade like a New Orleanian at Mardi Gras! It’s a family event and this show proves it. You can listen to the show to find out more… but even if you don’t listen, you need to click here to see all the photos from Mardi Gras day with the Daughters of St. Paul nuns in Metairie!

Dr. Brant Pitre joins me today on The Catholic Foodie Show to discuss his new book (to be released February 2, 2016) entitled The Case for Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ. In The Case for Jesus, Dr. Brant Pitre, bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, taps into the wells of Christian scripture, history, and tradition to ask and answer a number of questions about the origins and validity of the Gospels as well as one big question: Did Jesus of Nazareth claim to be God?
Though a seminary professor of Sacred Scripture, Dr. Brant Pitre is also a husband and father of five, and this book is written in plain language that everyone can understand. With his signature enthusiasm and with a deep love for both Jesus and the reader, Dr. Pitre offers compelling reasons for concluding that the four Gospels are first-century biographies of Jesus, written within the lifetime of the apostles and based directly on eyewitness testimony.
Buckle your seatbelt and get ready for an exciting ride to answer the question of a lifetime asked by Jesus, “And you, who do you say that I am?” Click here to listen: http://catholicfoodie.com/dr-brant-pitre-and-the-case-for-jesus-the-biblical-and-historical-evidence-for-christ

On the show today… still no King Cake in the Young household. Well… I haven’t made a King Cake, but I have eaten 3 slices from 3 different King Cakes so far. And, no, I did not get the baby. We are talking about why we love to read about food today as I share with you a wonderful article by Christie Purifoy at GraceTable. Listener feedback, married couples who are chefs and restaurant owners, Nero Wolfe, and more on The Catholic Foodie Show… where food meets faith!

The holy season of #Advent starts on Sunday, and I am honored to present some reflections next Thursday on ways to break through the malaise of familiarity that we often have with the Christmas story… ways that we can enter into this Advent season and allow God to surprise us anew with the grace and wonder of the birth of Jesus. Together with my team of skilled Catholic culinarians, I’ll be preparing for you a number of dishes from my recently published cookbook Around the Table with The Catholic Foodie: Middle Eastern Cuisine based on my pilgrimage to the Holy Land last year. Come out and join us if you can. See the details below. And if you can’t make it out,please consider helping to spread the word. Thanks! http://catholicfoodie.com/advent-the-holy-land-and-an-evening-with-the-catholic-foodie

On Monday’s show I featured a new special bakery doing good work in Bethlehem [Thank you, +Angela Sealana , for the tip!], Ordinary Time, confession and the Year of Mercy. In particular I share with you an excellent article by +Elizabeth Foss entitled Year of Mercy: Start with Yourself. Love this! I very much needed to read it. Finally, I share with you my secret weapon that makes every Monday a happy Monday for me. All this and more on The Catholic Foodie Show… where food meets faith.

Happy New Year!
I put together an exciting show for you today. It’s a new year and we talked New Year Resolutions and the feast of the Epiphany… AND, for all you perhaps newly health-conscious folks, I even shared a healthy recipe with you today: my Lebanese Lentil and Spinach Soup.
But first… I tackled the elephant in the room. You see it, right? You know the one I’m talking about, right? The big Epiphany elephant? No? Well, let me explain…
The Church in the United States celebrated the feast of the Epiphany yesterday, January 3rd. But traditionally the feast is celebrated on January 6. You know, the 12 Days of Christmas and all. [This might be the topic of tomorrow’s show, by the way. I’m thinking of calling it Moveable Feasts.] But for now, I’ll just point out the fact that the Church allows national bishop conferences to move certain feast days from their traditional dates to the closest Sunday so that more of the faithful can participate in the celebrations. Personally, I’m not a big fan of this. Truth be told, I’m really more of a liturgical purist… and a historical purist. I like keeping the how and the why of things intact. But you can hear more about that by listening to the show: http://catholicfoodie.com/happy-new-year-2016

Tomorrow is #Thanksgiving, and I woke up this morning to find this beautiful prayer in my inbox. It’s from the Marians of the Immaculate Conception, and I love how it gently draws our attention to St. Faustina and the Divine Mercy… especially as the Church, together with Pope Francis, prepares to enter into the Year of Mercy on December 8th. A special thank-you to the Marians of the Immaculate Conception. This will be the prayer of blessing and thanksgiving that we offer tomorrow around the table. See the prayer here: http://catholicfoodie.com/a-thanksgiving-blessing-with-an-eye-to-the-year-of-mercy

The Catholic Foodie brings much more to the table than merely recipes and reviews. The show highlights how food - good food - can be a sign to us of God’s love and care for each of us and our families. The tagline, "where food meets faith," speaks volumes about the importance of family, which is so often developed around the kitchen table.
