Sunday is Mother's Day. A day to celebrate and say thank you to all of the lovely ladies that gave us life, that give us grief, that made us what we are just by being who they are. If you're looking for an easy but elegant way to start Mother's Day here is a great idea from our resident chef, Jill McCoy. That's Jill and her mom Bettina you see in the picture.

This week we're getting a little "brunchy" if you'll allow me to create a new word. The Frittata is nothing more than an fancy omelet. Where it differs from our American version is a slight variation in the preparation.  While a lot of our traditional omelets are cooked completely a fry or saute pan, the Frittata is briefly cooked on the stove top and then finished in the oven.  It is actually a very elegant way to serve eggs.

As you can tell by reading Jill's recipe the toppings and inclusions in the Frittata gives you the freedom to make this dish very personal.  It also adds to the elegance of your presentation. Why just serve mom scrambled eggs when she can have something a little different, something with a lot of love, and something homemade.

Do you have a special Mother's Day meal that you'll be preparing for your mom? We'd like to know what you've got cooking at your house. Be sure and tell us about it and send us some pictures too.
