Mother's Day + Everyday Food

Surprisingly our Mother's Day post has no recipes and no decor ideas. A first for us when we're talking about entertaining + gathering with friends + family. We're recipe free for two reasons. First, as you all know Karen is a new mom + our fingers are crossed that she is pampered this Mother's day. Also, the test kitchens of Martha Stewart Everyday Food kindly invited us for their mother's day brunch with their editors, chefs, and fellow bloggers (we dined with Betsy of Cool Mom Picks, Isabel of Alpha Mom, Jennie of In Jennies Kitchen, and Olga of Sassy Radish). We had such a wonderful time meeting them all and learning a little bit about this fantastic mag's behind the scenes. Their brunch was beautiful, delicious, and attainable for every home cook -- everything that's important to SS -- so why would we compete ? Check out our visit here, the recipes are available in the May issue of Everyday Food (on newstands & Ipads too, plus there's a great instructional video on how to make the potato bacon cake here too). Happy Mother's day to new + long time moms alike ! (Written by Lizzy Sall , Photos by Karen Mordechai, scroll down for the full menu below)
