Making Memories

A Good Recipe Is Worth Its Weight In Gold—And This One Gives Back

Holiday traditions. Some are eye-roll worthy (you love them still). Others are steeped in nostalgia, that sweet sorrow of wistful remembrance. Still others are new, hopeful to be invited back to the annual fête. Magnolia Springs Loveland has one of its own—a vibrant, versatile (oh-so-easy) recipe they’re excited to share, in the hopes it becomes your get-together go-to. This classic marinara is uncomplicated and unabashedly delish (it’s all in the tomatoes)—a kitchen staple perfect for pasta, pizza, parmigiana and more. It’s the foundation of the senior living community’s annual Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser, the proceeds of which benefit the Alzheimer’s Association of Greater Cincinnati. Even more to give thanks for? This event’s generous sponsors, are Edward Jones of Loveland and Home Instead. Dine in or drive-through (but please RSVP, suggested donation $10/meal)—Wednesday, November 8 from 4–6pm.
