In Celebration of Mothers, Sisters & Grandmas

lollya | Apr 27, 2009 11:04 AM

Hey all, I am putting together the annual Mothers Day event, this years will be combined with a little special celebration surrounding the "pinning" of my MIL and SIL for the nursing program.

I'd like some help with my menu this year!

In the past I've worked with some spectacular recipes of my fellow chows and some of my own recipes mixed in.

I'd like to do a brunch...around 1 pm
we dig tarts, quiche etc but i'm also looking for some new flavors or combinations... for example, we did cayenne maple crusted bacon last time...tarragon potatoes, leek & camembert tart, strawberry tart in a shortbread crust...

I'd like to incorporate the following into the menu:

eggs
potatoes or grits
bacon
something dessert like, berries etc
a sparkling beverage, similar to a mimosa

So - any great recipes out there you'd like to share? I'd be mighty thankful.

I appreciate the help...hopefully we can get a good discussion and recipe share going in here!
