Mother's Day

On Mother's Day, you may find yourself humming that old tune that begins, "M is for the many things she gave to me" (and goes on to spell out all the fabulous things about "M-O-T-H-E-R"). Probably first on the list of the things mom has given you is food served with love. So for today, give it back by cooking up something special with these Mother's Day recipes (and if you're a mom yourself, share the recipes with your kids: hint, hint). How about an easygoing Mother's Day breakfast or brunch, with rich French toast, fluffy omelets, fresh strawberries, and, of course, a sparkling mimosa cocktail (mom deserves a Champagne toast, after all)? Or maybe mom will have a chance to sleep in (now there's a luxury) and arise just in time to savor a leisurely lunch of crispy buttermilk fried chicken and herbed cheese biscuits. If you want to pull out all the stops, prepare an elegant Mother's Day dinner of filet-mignon or perfectly cooked and juicy pork chops. (Show her all the kitchen tricks you learned from her!) And then give her a sweet surprise by baking a beautiful Mother's Day cake-whether she's a cheesecake lover or a mile-high- layer-cake kind of gal, we have cake recipes to tickle her fancy. C'mon, it's Mom; time to spoil her a little.
