In my opinion, there’s no better way to show your love for someone than by cooking withor forthem. And during these incredibly difficult times, cooking as a hobby, distraction and as a means for nourishment and affection has never been more important. I’ve assembled several recipes that have kept my family connected and happy over the last few months – each one with its own virtue for involving someone in the family.


Tina and Nate Hodne knew it was time to make a change. Like many families, what they needed in a house changed as their children, Alexis and Joe, grew into teenagers. 


Their kids were 22 months and four months old when they moved to Fayetteville from Iowa in 2003. In 2008 the couple built a home they loved in the Copper Creek subdivision. “That floor plan worked great when the kids were little, but we weren’t using the house any more in the way we designed it,” Tina says.

Those who question the work ethic of recent college graduates should meet Taylor Hasley. A 2018 graduate of the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, with a degree in finance and accounting through the honors college, Taylor has done nothing but work hard. 

Taylor was born in Fort Smith and went to high school in Greenwood, where he played football and enjoyed what he calls “that small town vibe” while growing up. Though his parents divorced when he was in sixth grade, he continued to learn from both of them about hard work and achievement.
