Synopsis

Since Steffy was little, she and her older sister, Nina, have lived with beloved Auntie Gina. But when Steffy and Nina’s dad comes home to live with them, everything changes.

So Steffy does what she does best: She cooks her way through the hardest year of her life. But sometimes her life feels like a kitchen-sink meal—too many ingredients that don't quite work. All Steffy wants is for her family to be whole again. Can her recipes help bring them back together?

Steffany Sandolini is…

1 cup perseverance

2/3 cup listening skills

2 tablespoons talent

1 teaspoon loyalty

A dash of stubbornness

And more ingredients she hasn’t thought of yet. How will she mix them all together?
