For Mother's Day, we took my mother and father-in-law out for brunch. Thankfully we got there shortly after the restaurant opened and it wasn't too busy. I'd say the brunch was as much for me as for them since it's a rib place and I'm such a carnivore.
During lunch, my mother-in-law mentioned that she was cleaning up her house and was getting rid of a lot of things, including her baking tools. Of all her kids and grandkids, I'm really the only one with enough kitchen space to house a lot of pots and pans and I love to bake. So, afterwards, we went back to their place where she proceeded to load me up with all sorts of baking pans, including one that was from a bakery in San Francisco.
It's a beautiful book, full of lovely pictures. I'd love to say I'm going to try out each one of those recipes, but I'm no Julia Powell of the baking world.
I hope all of you wonderful mothers are being spoiled rotten and that you in turn are telling your mom how awesome she is.
