CTW S2E2 Eat, Darling, Eat with Aimee Lee Ball


Aimee Lee Ball is the Co-Founder of Eat, Darling, Eat - a website that celebrates the mother-daughter relationship through a collection of original stories and recipes. She is the author of multiple books, including No Time to Die, Cybill Disobedience, and Changing the Rules. Aimee has penned countless articles for several national publications, including The New York Times, Travel & Leisure, GQ, Vogue, and Oprah Magazine.


Aimee joins me today to discuss the relationship between mothers and daughters and why this relationship is often one of the most significant in a young woman’s life. We discuss how mothers and daughters create lasting memories and develop strong bonds while preparing meals for the family. We discuss the inspiration behind the Eat, Darling, Eat website and how her own mother influenced her inspiration. We also discuss how daughters often become the ‘light’ for our aging mothers and how it impacts our own aging process.




“Food really is such an interesting parable for the mother-daughter relationship.” - Aimee Lee Ball
