Lisa Schroeder is a chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and a busy mom. Her Portland restaurant, Mother’s Bistro & Bar is “an ode to all things motherly” where Lisa’s “Mother Food,” the ultimate comfort food, if you ask me, is made from scratch daily with fresh, high-quality ingredients (just like Mom’s!).
This Mother’s Day, we’re saluting moms like Lisa who honor home cooking (and cooks) with recipes that compel families around kitchen tables. Check out the excerpts from Lisa'a book Mother’s Best and upload one of your own mom-inspired recipes to our Recipe Exchange or post a comment about your favorite “Mother Food.” I’ll pick one recipe and one comment at random on Tuesday, May 11, 2010. The random picks will each receive a copy of Mother’s Best.
|Chicken Cacciatore||Jan's Stuffed Eggplant|
|Chicken and Dumplings||Manhattan Clam Chowder|
Breakfast/Brunch and Dessert:
|Migas (Scrambled Eggs with Corn Tortillas)||Mother's Crunchy French Toast|
|Almond Poppy Seed Pancakes||Coconut Cream Pie|
Now, go ahead and gush about mom's cooking below or share one of her recipes with us. It could be worth a copy of Mother's Best!
Update: Congrats to katiekat and rondash. Both will be cooking from Mother's Best in no time. Thanks for your comments, everyone!
