Recipe of the Day: Mother’s Day Savory Quiche

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!

Let’s celebrate our Mama’s! In years gone past we would gather at a house of a friend or family member and prepare a delicious feast. Sweet and savory eats along with a bellini bar. It was always a fun day that would evolve into a dance party! So much fun. Times have changed since families have expanded and its difficult to get the original crew together now with extended family members wanting to celebrate too. This year we are going out to brunch, however, if we weren’t this is what I would make. I found this recipe on Grand Babycakes ~ see for yourself this looks amazing. Remember to make a green salad on the side, like one of our favorites: Basil Cauliflower Cucumber & don’t forget the Bellini bar!
