Today’s Mother’s Day reminiscence comes from Kate Linnihan. She recently joined Kosher.com as our Email Marketing Manager. Here’s Kate …

Unlike most women of her generation (who were famous for flavoring everything with a can of tomato or cream of mushroom soup) and most women of her Irish background (who were famous for boiling everything until it turned gray), my mom is a great cook. Her range is much more limited compared to what I cook for my family today—I grew up in a time when spaghetti was considered ethnic food! But I can’t come close to her skills at basic meat and potatoes meals. I’m totally intimidated by a leg of lamb, but in her hands it’s magic! She has taught me so much over the years, not least of which is how to make a decent pot roast! I hope my children will have the wonderful memories of me in the kitchen that I have of my mother.

Today’s Mother’s Day thoughts come from Brian Cooper, our Director of Online Marketing. Brian’s been with Kosher.com for almost 3 years. Here’s his tale …

My mother is an excellent cook. She was while I and my two siblings were young, and she remains so today. She is versatile and creative in the kitchen. It also always struck me that she was most at ease in the kitchen, creating meals for us and for friends. That’s often when it was easiest to talk with my mom! I remember often hanging out in the kitchen reviewing the issues of the moment, and sneaking bits and bites as she worked. But the thing that most stands out for me is not any specific dish, although there were many that we loved. Rather, it’s the atmosphere my mother created, the idea that food is about family and friends. Food is for family and friends. Food is fun, and often something to admire, but still it’s not the point. The point is the gathering, the warmth around the table, and the fun of being together that food helps facilitate. That remains true for my mother today, and was passed on to me and both my siblings.

Our next Mother’s Day memory comes from Noach Rosenberg. Noach is the Director of Affiliate Marketing for Kosher.com and has been with the company for close to 4 years. Here’s Noach …

Everywhere my family has lived—from Jerusalem to Far Rockaway—my mother has been famous for her cooking. I grew up hearing things like “your mother is the best cook ever!”, and “You’re so lucky to have a mother who cooks like that!” Friends who lived just a few minutes away would invite themselves over for meals, leaving their own mothers to wonder why their kids didn’t like them anymore.

Sunday, May 9, 2010 is Mother’s Day. I’ve asked the Kosher.com family to share stories about their moms and send special greetings. This one is from me.

As you well know, my mother has some sort of inborn allergic reaction to the kitchen, which she almost certainly passed on to me hence my love for all things quick when it comes to cooking. She hasn’t turned on the oven in her new house, ever—and she’s been living there over 7 years!  But I have to say my mother is a sheer genius when it comes to salads both of the fruit and veggie variety.

May 9, 2010 is Mother’s Day. For a lot of Dads that means making brunch reservations, but I talk with Jay about how to make Mother’s Day brunch an easy, kid-friendly fix.

On Mother’s Day millions of befuddled Dads throughout the land will descend into their kitchens, kids in tow, and stare blankly at the stove hoping for inspiration. Poor dads! Despite the rise of the “kitchen-friendly husband,” for many fathers, Mother’s Day is the one day of the year when they are expected to cook and take care of the kids. (Top tip: If you have to shout, “Shh, Mommy is sleeping,” chances are she isn’t.)
