When he was small, my youngest son had a habit of filling his pockets with treasures he encountered in his daily adventures. I didn't always understand the value he saw in his chosen objects -- really, how many rocks and sticks could one boy keep? In his eyes, though, each one was beautiful and important. Life is just like that on a larger scale, isn't it? We gather up the precious bits of our experiences and save them all to learn from and enjoy later. Perhaps you'll find a little something here that you'd like to keep in your own pockets. Thanks for visiting.

Mother's Day Treats (13 lovely recipes to celebrate Mom)

 “A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”

 ―Washington Irving

This weekend we have a special opportunity to celebrate the wonderful moms we know and love, to thank them for the countless ways they've given of themselves over the years to make our lives happy.  If you're trying to find a sweet way to tell a mom you love her, perhaps you'll like some of the ideas I've gathered up here, all of which you still have time to make in your own kitchen this weekend.
