Mother’s Day is this weekend and I am really excited for a special day to celebrate my amazing mom and mother-in-law, as well as being a mom to my two incredible children! I have a beautiful relationship with my mom and I hope to have a similar one with my own daughter when she grows up. My mom has always been full of love and support and is a role model who I truly admire. She is there to talk, laugh, and cry with me and puts her own life on hold to be there for my family and me. I am really blessed to have such a caring and loving mom and grandma to my children, and I can’t wait to spend a day celebrating her. We used to live two minutes down the street from my parents in California, but for the past five years, have lived across the country or in a different state. I have been very fortunate to spend so much time with them and have them fly or drive hours to see us often. We get to spend a lot of time and many Mother’s Days together and that means the world to me. I was lucky to live near my in-laws for several years and spend those Mother’s Days with them too.  I am very fortunate to have such amazing in-laws who are also full of love for my family and me. I got to spend a lot of time with them when we lived in Pennsylvania and have a very close relationship with my mother-in-law too.

This Mother’s Day, we will be having a Cheesy Arugula Quiche with Hash Brown Crust as part of our yummy brunch. My mom and I LOVE hash browns, so this is perfect for us. We love to cook together and have so much fun in the kitchen, so I am looking forward to making a lot of tasty food with her. The quiche is excellent and my whole family really enjoyed it for brunch a couple of weeks ago. I love the addition of arugula, and cheese is always an added bonus!  The Bacon Jalapeno Popper Quiche I made was delicious as well, but I loved the idea of using hash browns for the crust, so wanted to try something new this Mother’s Day.  I found this great recipe at The Cafe Sucre Farine!
