“In 10 years of tender lessons, I learned to hear this message… You were always there. You never left. You were never not you. Now walk with me for a while and discover this girl again. She’s not far away,” Kartes said of the inspiration behind her latest book.
Unlike the many cookbooks and food items that Kartes is best known for, You were always there is a collection of essays centered around personal stories of motherhood, cooking, and the pursuit of dreams.
“You were always there is a collection of essays about my life and journey that are relevant to just about every woman,” Kartes said. “We’ve all felt like we’ve lost who we once were at one point or another. … This book is special to me because I experienced every story in the book and the food is tied to every trial.
