Praise for Celebrate with Babs:

[Y]ou need to be following Barbara “Babs” Costello…From her soothing series of philosophical pep talks, dubbed A Slice of Peace, to her Weekly Rotation recipes and easy spring cleaning ideas, Costello speaks to her internet audience as if we are her own children and grandchildren: uplifting, instructive, and sharing her life lessons.” Bon Appetit

“You may know Barbara Costello from her charming and helpful social media presence, @brunchwithbabs—now, everyone can welcome Babs to their holiday table with her approachable, family-friendly recipes. She may not actually be your grandma, but with her holiday recipes, she’ll become an honorary member of the family.” –Food52
