how to treat yo’ mama (and in turn, yo’self) this mother’s day

MDR-1850

Well, I think the answer as to how to accomplish this task is pretty obvious: with food. More specifically, with food that you, yes, YOU!, have prepared with those very hands of yours.

Food aside for a minute, a card is also a lovely gesture – especially if you’re not spending the day together. (This is my way of sneaking in an anecdote of my occasionally ridiculous life… Annnnnnd go!)

On Wednesday after work, I rushed to the post office to drop off my cards. I was so determined to beat the last collection of the day that I somehow didn’t see the mailbox “door” (which has a handle, mind you), and instead only saw the open slot above it. After staring at the contraption for a good two minutes, I finally dropped the cards in the slot… only to see the handle literally a second later. I immediately panicked and thought my cards were lost in the Boston Post Office Black Hole, so I hopped on line to alert one of the employees to my misplaced cards.

Turns out the slot is an acceptable place for your mail too… Who knew?

Also, did I mention that my cards were mailed with THE UGLIEST stamps? Yep, those were the result of my post office adventure the day before. Manly muscle car stamps on feminine Mother’s Day cards. Wonderful. (Surprise, Mom!)

Now, back to food! And where better to start than breakfast (/brunch)?!

I’ve been reading and watching the news non-stop for the past 36 hours. Despite the frequent sirens right outside my window, it’s hard to believe that what I’m seeing on TV is happening here in Boston.

It’s no secret how I feel about this city – I love it.

If you’re a foodie who regularly roams the internet ogling at food porn, you’ve probably seen this recipe about 12 times over. Guess this post makes it the 13th time. So basically, consider this the universe’s way of telling you to make this bread.

But really, do it. It’s delicious. (No pressure.)

strawberry funfetti pancakes

Every once in a while I make a dish that makes me go “OH. MY. GOD.” when I take my first bite.  Then I have a moment of silence.  Then I take another bite and repeat.  It’s more or less a religious experience.

These are one of those dishes.
