When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It’s also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be.

Molly WizenbergA Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table, 2009

Hi there,

Attention all food lovers and cooking enthusiasts! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, I am seeking contributors to share their stories and favorite recipes, and culinary tips to help make this special day even more memorable. 

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate the amazing women in our lives. Whether it is your mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, BFF Forever, it’s a day to show gratitude and appreciation for all the love and care given to us. And what better way to express our love than through the universal language of food?

Whether it’s a classic brunch dish, a delectable dessert, or a savory main course, I want to showcase your story that will include a recipe that is both delicious and easy to make. I am looking for contributors who are passionate about cooking and have their own unique story they want to share. 

So, if you’re ready to share your love of cooking and help make this Mother’s Day extra special, I encourage you to submit your recipe and story. Let’s make this Mother’s Day a delicious and unforgettable one!

I will use the month of May to publish your stories and recipes. I will need a story, a recipe, and a photo. For more information, please contact me at NewClassic

I look forward to hearing from you.

  1. VinceHomeMade – Australia – With a decade of experience in the commercial kitchens of London and more than three times that cooking with my family, I am now going to share what I have learned along the way. Whether it's a recipe for shortcrust pastry; a pro-tip on buying or using chef's knives; a review of a new ingredient or a new take on an old one. It will be all here as I start this blog journey, in text, pictures and video links to my Instagram and YouTube page. If you would like to help me on this journey perhaps you would click on the link to "Buy me a coffee"

  2. Dorothy's New Vintage Kitchen – I'm a writer, cook, gardener, photographer, poet, quilter, and accomplished daydreamer. I'm also a wife, mother, grandmother, sister. cousin, aunt, and friend, no particular order on any given day. I've been a writer all my life, newspaper reporter and columnist, radio news writer, and magazine contributor, and poet and short-story writer as the spirit moves. Now, I turn my attention to my cookbook, the blog, and a cooking column "Memorable Meals," which runs in our county newspaper. Besides my family, I love dogs, cats, good coffee, and my never-dwindling pile of books I intend to read. Our family ran a small Vermont Inn for 18 years, with our focus on local, organic ingredients. After many years of daily serving up of our local delicacies, cooking classes, and catering, we are now only open for special events, and the odd cooking class as the spirit moves me. We also host musicians and artists, having helped produce a musical festival and other musical events for nearly 20 years. Many incredible artists have found a place at our table. Wonderful experiences, we will treasure always. My family and friends are my practice subjects. With a family that includes nut, peanut, tree fruit, and vegetable allergies, gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance, vegetarians, vegans, heart conscious, and a couple of picky eaters, there has to be a few quick tricks in the book to keep everyone fed and happy! Personally, I do not eat red meat or most dairy (usually) for health reasons, making the occasional exception at Thanksgiving and Christmas or our anniversary if the duck is locally raised. I do eat fish and seafood, so I try to come up with alternatives and substitutions when available. I serve local organic eggs and cheeses to my family who can tolerate dairy (My husband recently had a heart attack, and I need to watch my own cholesterol so I am careful, but have been known to let a little piece of really good cheese accidentally fall on my plate!). I believe strongly that eating in a way that is good for our planet is also good for our bodies! I cook by the seasons and draw on inspiration from the strong and talented women in my family who came before me, as well as the youth in the family who look at the world with fresh eyes. Food links us all, whether sharing a meal, cooking it together, or writing about it for others to enjoy. I love taking an old recipe and giving it a modern spin, especially if I can make it a littler healthier and use foods that are kinder to the Earth and to our bodies. I believe strongly in sustainable, delicious eating of whole foods, and the wonderful flavors we have at our fingertips! And finally, I love conversing with all the talented cooks and chefs out there who dot the globe! It's a wonderful, world full of culinary pen pals, and I cherish them all! XXXOOO Dorothy

  3. Hi Bernadette, I love this idea. I will send you a recipe as I am cooking for the family for Easter.

  4. Awwwww, memories of me cooking as a mom to my young kids make me smile. Never anything special, but to them, it was. xo

  5. D. Wallace Peach – 30 Miles beyond the edge of civilization, Oregon – I'm an adventurer in writing, peering under rocks in my garden for secret magic. I can't stop writing. My stories want to explode from my head. They demand my attention and surge from my fingertips faster than I can put them to paper. I love what I do.

        I’m a terrible cook, Bernadette, and my dear mom cooked from boxes. But I enjoy the recipes from your site, and some have become go-to options for us. 🙂 Keep them coming.
