Let’s face it, mothering can be a bit of a thankless job (albeit, they say, the best). And though a mere 24 hours isn’t nearly enough time to express our infinite gratitude for bringing us into the world, and putting up with us while we’re in it, we’ll take every opportunity we can get. If we’re fortunate enough to spend some time this weekend with the women who raised us, as so many aren’t, we’re showing our love on the plate and in the kitchen - be it whipping up a Mediterranean feast or sharing sweet treats in our Summer Fruit spotlight class, we’re serving up each dish with a side of serious admiration.
So, to each and every mother out there, whether we’re linked by genetics or simply good fortune, we say thank you, thank you thank you.
