  Happy Mother's Day 
Who is more important in our lives than our Mothers? There are about 85.4 million mothers in the U.S. alone, so you can imagine the amount of flowers, jewelry, spa treatments, candy, kitchen items, books, cards and gift certificates that are purchased each year for Mother's Day.

The driving force behind Mother's Day was Anna Jarvis, who organized observances in Grafton, W.Va., and Philadelphia on May 10, 1908. As the annual celebration became popular around the country, Jarvis asked members of Congress to set aside a day to honor mothers. She finally succeeded in 1914, when Congress designated the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day.
To your left see a few Mother's Day recipes, just in case you are cooking for Mom this year.  More can be found in our Sally's Place recipe section
All the best in food, wine, and travel.
Happy May,
Sally Bernstein
