Love Welcome Serve: Recipes that Gather and Give

Having been a Southern preacher's wife for more than 20 years, Amy Hannon's heart for hospitality was established, confirming her long-held belief that people who are cooked for feel cared for. Modeled after her grandmother, Euna Mae, Amy's big-hearted lifestyle has become noticed by a disconnected world that is drawn to her mission of using food to love, welcome, and serve those around her. Amy encourages people to open their homes and their hearts, connecting with folks over food; and she offers home cooks simple, crowd-pleasing, comfort recipes - meals that can be prepared for whatever the people-feeding affair.  

Recipes like Brown Sugar Chili Over Cheese Grits, Cream Cheese Chicken Enchiladas, and Sam's Pulled Pork are perfect belly-fillers for gathering people in your home. And recipes like Comfort Chicken Pot Pie, Hello Dolly Brownies, and Layered Spaghetti Pie are ideal for giving to folks who need to feel loved.

Combined with her refreshing enthusiasm and approachable recipes, Amy Hannon has ignited a passion in young cooks who are spreading their hospitality wings, and she has reignited that same passion in seasoned cooks who had forgotten how much joy comes from serving others.  

Amy's first cookbook, Love Welcome Serve: Recipes that Gather and Give, is filled with more than 100 comfort recipes that will encourage you to embrace hospitality so you can enjoy the life that happens when you make and serve food to your people.


Amy Nelson Hannon is the owner of Euna Mae's, a one-of-a-kind kitchen boutique that has become not only a special place to locals but has quickly become a destination shop for many around the country. In addition to her kitchen shop, Amy has an expansive media platform that includes a cooking show on KNWA Northwest Arkansas' NBC station, a food blog, and an engaging social media presence. Amy lives in Springdale, Arkansas in the thriving Northwest Arkansas metro area with her husband Sam Hannon and their children Grace, Luke, and Isaac.
