Top 5 Mother’s Day Dishes

Mother’s Day is May 11th (less than 2 weeks away) and like most, we celebrate it with food. As a youngster, it was always a treat for me to be able to serve my mom breakfast in bed.

I was more nervous about the possibility of dropping the tray more so than if the food was edible! I would serve the usual Mother’s Day food items such as instant coffee, orange juice, toast, scrambled egg (any other type of egg would have disastrous results) napkin and of course, a flower. It would arrive cold, I might add, and mom would happily eat it as if a chef had prepared it. As I got older, the menu would get a bit more sophisticated (read not having to be supervised) and also I would have been sharing the routine with my younger siblings. I thought I’d share with you these top 5 Mother’s Day recipes to honor mothers around the globe.

About Heather Chase

The Culinary Chase was coined by my husband whilst in a coffee shop in Hong Kong back in 2006. We wanted something that would be a play on my last name and by the time we finished our coffee, the name was born. As long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed cooking. It wasn’t until we moved to Asia that I began to experiment using herbs and spices in my everyday cooking. Not only do they enhance the flavor of food but also heighten it nutritionally. Over the years, I began to change our diet to include more vegetables, pulses, whole grains and less red meat. Don’t get me wrong, we love our meat, just not in super-size portions (too hard for the body to digest). I always use the palm of my hand as a guide to portion control when eating red meat. If the meat is larger than my hand, I save that portion for another day. Also, if the veggies on your plate look colorful (think the colors of the rainbow) – red, green, yellow, orange etc. then you’re most likely getting the right amount of nutrients per meal. I post recipes that I think help maintain a healthy body. I use the 80/20 rule – 80% of the time I make a conscious effort to eat healthy and 20% for when I want french fries with gravy (poutine). Balance is the key and to enjoy life with whatever comes my way. Thanks for visiting!
