I’m not one to stand on ceremony, so I have always had mixed feelings about Mother’s Day. On the one hand, as they say, every day is mother’s day, but on the other hand, do we make a point to celebrate mothers “every-day?”

Is it a Hallmark holiday created to fuel the greeting card industry or a legitimate opportunity to express thanks for the mothers in our lives?

As a mother, does Mother’s Day fanfare feel obligatory or appreciated? I fall somewhere between both camps but I will never say no to a nice note, a thoughtful gesture, and a big hug from my child.

This week we decided to get a head start on the celebration and dedicate a menu to what we think Mom will love.

Spring Roasted Artichoke Salad by Chaia Frishman

Jerusalem artichoke A.K.A. the sunchoke, is a veggie lots of people don’t know much about. It’s a nutty, subtly sweet, and tasty root vegetable that resembles ginger (in looks).

A unique way to make your chicken. The sweet potato adds a subtle sweetness to the chicken and acts as a sealant to keep the juices locked in. Use the sauce of your preference, or try both!

Coffee-Rubbed Roast by Michal Frischman

The coffee adds a real depth to the roast and plays really nicely off the smokiness of the other spices. Use whatever coffee you like best, but if you don’t want a very overt coffee flavor, go with a light or medium roast.
