May is the month specifically dedicated to Mothers and I know Mother’s Day has come and gone this year but due to a kazillion things going on in my life (like going out of town back to back and a dreadful move) I have drug out celebrating my Mother for the whole month. But I guess if I honor my Mother for a whole month that makes up for being the worst daughter ever. This little tribute to her with a
week month of her recipes (ones from my childhood) is in fact, for a blogger, the best way I know how to honor and reflect about my Mom. And secretly I hope earns me the best daughter EVA award. So let’s recap…
These sugar cookies hold a special place in my heart. They bring sweet memories (pun totally intended) of mounds and mounds of rich creamy frosting, a rainbow of colored sprinkles and 100’s of cookie cutters in all shapes and sizes.
I think every person in the good ole US of A has memories of eating Potluck Potatoes, AKA Funeral Potatoes, AKA Old Skool Potatoes Au gratin, AKA Gooey Potatoes, AKA Mom’s Potato Casserole.
When people ask me what my favorite ‘go to meal’ is, my answer is a quick “My Mom’s Lemon Peppered Chicken… hands down, it never fails me, I always have the ingredients, and it goes with every thing.” The. End. Period. Done. And. Done.
I love fruit. Fruit loves me. We are a happy family. Add marshmallows and coconut, and you have fruit salad from heaven in a bowl.
What can I say, I love fruit salads. If that isn’t flat obvious (with back to back fruit salad recipes) I don’t know what is.
