Mother's Day is this Sunday, and I feel lucky to say that I'll be spending the day with my fabulous mom. Both of my siblings are far away, so it will be a small celebration with my parents and me. Instead of going out to brunch, we'll enjoy a leisurely meal in the front patio. On the menu? All of mom's favorites! She's a fan of simple food, so the main attraction is a classic quiche lorraine. Twice-cooked hash browns and a strawberry orange salad round out the easy menu. On Saturday night, I'll put together the quiche and bake the potatoes. Then come Sunday morning, all I have to do is bake the quiche, finish the potatoes, and throw together the salad. To enjoy these dishes with your loved ones, get the recipes now.
