Sunday is Mother’s Day and I know that many of you will be celebrating it in style with your mom, wife, sisters, aunts and other female family members, relatives and friends, who are a mother whether biological, foster (through adoption), spiritual, or otherwise. Even those who are not a mother, but have in some point in their lives been motherly to their nieces, nephews, friends children and even perfect strangers kids. Never take your mother for granted, because you can only have one mother. Let us celebrate mother’s day with a bang, and what a better way than to celebrate that special day, than with food, for what else besides love and family brings others together than food.
Today I am celebrating Mother’s Day, with great tasting recipes and who can I think of that does it better, than my friend, Wendy Rahamut.
