happy birthday mom

I've been privileged to live nearby my parents since they've retired in 2001. Living near them means I get to enjoy the delectable delights of the culinary goddess that is my mom. We've partnered together and created an heirloom cookbook called Incredible Edibles a few years back that we're in the process of updating with some of her more recent recipes.

While she is known far and wide for heirloom treats like kuchen and blueberry varaniki, she even makes the simplest things like macaroni salad taste better than anyone elses.

It's her birthday today. Happy birthday mom, from the bottom of my happy little heart. I wrote this poem for you in 2003 and I'd like to share it here again.
