Hmmm. what should we eat on Mother’s Day?

I have some good ideas for you ! Here are 10 recipes but there are many more on this blog!

If there is no place to go for brunch.. if the kids can’t come in to eat… it might be too cold to gather outside.. can’t see the grandkids… this can all be disappointing so, if we eat something delicious maybe that can help a little bit!

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
