A Special Message from Anne Milneck | Home Cooking and Connections

If you are hunkered down, practicing social distancing, and maybe wanting a little comfort, we have a little Smidgen bonus for you. Anne Milneck, host of Smidgen and owner of Red Stick Spice Company talks (remotely) with producer Catherine O’Brien. Anne shares her thoughts on why heading to the kitchen is a good idea right now, and can even be a source of joy in stressful times. Anne also has a unique perspective in our current circumstance: Anne’s son Clay has a chronic illness that requires extra care and consideration. Anne hit up Clay’s gastroenterologist Dr. Casey Chapman with a few questions that provides valuable information for all of us, especially folks who want to help #flattenthecurve. Finally, Catherine quizzes Anne about being a small business owner in uncertain times; Anne comes back with ideas for supporting your favorite small businesses and highlights the creativity and innovation that can arise from unusual circumstances.

We invite you to reach out to us with any ideas you have, or just to say hello and check in.
