Mother’s Day is so much fun! Dads cooking (and not outside), kids making tchachkes, moms trying to relax while the dads are cooking and the kids are tchachke-making.

On Mother’s Day, invite over your mom and mom-in-law. Mine love to spend time with the kiddies—they think I am doing such a mitzvah by including them—and I am thrilled to have eager all-day playmates for the kids; it’s relaxing.  The only thing better than being celebrated is the opportunity to celebrate your moms and thank them for all they have done


 

Mom’s the Word – Mother’s Day...

The last word in our Mother’s Day greetings comes from Stacey Herron, who works on national affiliate marketing at Kosher.com.

To me, my mother is chicken cacciatore. Let me explain. As a little girl, I was prone to becoming very attached to things. One day, I had a play date with a friend. When dinner rolled around, her mother served an amazing concoction known as chicken cacciatore. It was so delicious that I raced home and begged my mother to make it for dinner the very next night. And the next night. And the next. In fact, I remember begging her to make this same dish every single night for nearly two months despite the fact that she was sick to her stomach from too much chicken cacciatore. Interestingly enough, I never really loved chicken on its own, and tomatoes always nauseated me, but I enjoyed the down-home feeling of the dish and the lessons I learned cooking it with my mother. Although I finally got sick of chicken cacciatore (I haven’t eaten it in over 12 years!), I will always remember the time I spent with my mother in the kitchen learning how to cook. Even more so, I will always remember my mother’s sacrifices as she forced down chicken cacciatore night after night to make me happy. So, to me, my mother is and forever will be associated with that chicken cacciatore!

This Mother’s Day greeting comes from Jay Eidelman who develops and manages content for Kosher.com.

My mother is a great baker of cakes. For birthdays growing up my brothers and I were always feted with her upside down apple cake, a kind of cobbler made with a cake batter topping. On Rosh Hashanah her honey cake is sublime. Sweet without being cloying and rich without any hint of the burnt caramel flavor that does in so many honey cakes. These days, it’s my mom’s stunningly scrumptious dark chocolate cake, which she makes weekly for Shabbat, that I miss so acutely living away.

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.)
