While one of my fellow editors enjoys a leisurely meal on her front patio this Mother's Day, I'll be celebrating with classic breakfast food: waffles. Since I hate choosing between sweet and savory dishes when out to brunch, I'm going to eliminate the choice on Sunday and serve breakfast options that satisfy a penchant for both sugar and salt.
We'll begin with waffles served the traditional Belgian way, sprinkled with confectioner's sugar. To up the ante, I'm also including freshly whipped cream and strawberries to top them off. And before any palates suffer from sweet fatigue, I'll bring in a savory version, studded with chives, rosemary, and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, then topped with irresistible bacon and poached eggs. Envious? Stun your mom with the same choices when you read more.
There's Breville's stand mixer, Breville's panini press, and Magimix's Vision toaster that lets you see when the toast is done! But that's not all, the package also includes an immersion blender, mini food processor, apron, silicone spatulas, oven mitts, and pink dish towels. Think that's it? Think again! Mom needs to be inspired, so we're throwing in chef Thomas Keller's Ad Hoc at Home cookbook and Bouchon Bakery cookie mixes.

Pineapples have traditionally been employed in tropical fruit salads, where they complement the flavors of papayas, mangoes, and toasted coconut. But don't overlook a savory application. Combine the fruit with cucumbers, tomatoes, and herbs in a fiery Asian vinaigrette for a sweet-hot twist. Make it a full meal by adding shredded rotisserie chicken or garlicky grilled shrimp. Aching for a taste of the tropics? Decide whether to go the sweet or salty route when you read more.
Hours later, when the scent wafting from the crockpot tells me that dinner's ready, I'll enjoy it at the table with the rest of the leftover wine. Sound like a relaxing close to a long, busy week? Then make the recipe yourself when you read more.
I LOVE Williams-Sonoma Home, and if I were a millionaire I'd happily choose staples from their collection for my home. Sadly, I'm not, so I tend to look at more lowbrow furniture sites when considering a new piece. Still, I do like to fantasize occasionally and view the Williams-Sonoma Home furniture, so imagine my surprise when I saw a chair that looked just like one I'd spied on a cheaper site the day before!
As shown, in China Blue classic linen, it's $1,750 plus tax and $160 shipping.

Escarole is sweeter sautéed, but adds a nice crunch in a seasonal salad. Roughly chop it and toss with Dijon vinaigrette to cut the bitterness. Or, for something a bit more elaborate, make xató, a classic Catalan salad topped with a romesco-like sauce, and served with anchovy, tuna, and salt cod (baccala). Make the most of January's bounty with two different types of escarole salad when you read more.
