On her site, Dinner: A Love Story, Jenny Rosenstrach shows how simple, tasty and utterly rewarding family dinnertime can be (even when your 5-year-old is going through that "nothing green" phase). And don't miss Jenny's book, Dinner: A Love Story.
"I have to be honest here. I'm not a big fan of Mother's Day brunch. It's not the Mother's Day part of it I necessarily mind. It's the brunch part. I come from a long line of brunch-o-thropes, or to put a more positive spin on it, from a family who likes to be outdoors in the middle of a beautiful spring Sunday instead of trapped in a windowless room eating an omelet stuffed with whatever the chef had left over from the real meal the night before. So, I guess I should say that my ideal Mother's Day brunch item is something that I can take with me … away from the brunch table. Like this perfect little handheld Egg and Cheese on a Biscuit. It's simply one whisked and scrambled egg with a few dots of cream cheese mixed in (to make the eggs fluffy), and a piece of sharp cheddar melted over a buttermilk biscuit. In my house, we don't bother making the biscuits from scratch -- these are Trader Joe's. Why would we when we can be outside playing soccer or tennis or hopscotch or tetherball instead?"
