Nothing soothes the soul quite like a comfortable tête-à-tête with a friend or family member. Too bad most of us get more face time with the grocery store clerk than with the people who really matter in our lives. Looking to reconnect? Try these tactics.

COOK UP A FAMILY FEAST

Make a meal together as a family and then sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labor together. Use Ragù® Pizza Quick Sauce to make Buffalo Chicken Pizza and have yourself a family pizza party!

TRY A LITTLE GAMESMANSHIP

Standing dates for munchies and games (anything from gin rummy to a board game — whatever suits your fancy) are just an excuse for what you’re really after: a gabfest. Exile the TV to the basement, if only temporarily. Then set up the card table, put out the chips and let the chatter begin.

BOOK SOME TIME

You don’t need to host a national TV talk show to start your own book club. For fun kids’ games, literacy-promoting activities and tips for parents, visit the RIF Reading Planet, an online feature of the nonprofit organization Reading Is Fundamental.

CHAMPION A CHARITY

Community service is a terrific way to carve out quality time with loved ones and to give back to others. For more information on volunteering opportunities and information, visit Project Sunlight.

PAR-TEE

Gather the clan for a monthly bash. Make it a memorable event by having alternate generations select music from different decades. (For added fun, you can even ask for theme-appropriate dress.) Or rent a movie projector and set up an outdoor theater to enjoy a film alfresco.
