Show Mom Some Love

CCF001_MothersDayBlog_v2_2There are 84 million moms in the United States but you just have to focus on yours. On Mother’s Day, the third most popular holiday, any woman that has attributed to your growth deserves a little recognition.

In addition to mom, wife and grandma, card companies offer a wide-selection of cards for close family members and friends who have facilitated a mother-like role. Make sure you pick out something special for the influential moms in your life.

Beyond your Mother’s Day card, no one wants mom to cook on her special day which is why every year Mother’s Day holds the distinction of being the busiest day of the year for restaurants. So, if you plan to dine out, expect to wait or better yet find a location that takes reservations. Don’t forget your Community® coffee with dessert; it will help to enrich the experience.

Thanksgiving – Last Minute Tips

 shutterstock_2636008We’ll be quick because Thanksgiving is here. So even if you’re an experienced cook who’s prepared Thanksgiving dinner multiple times, there are ways to make the meal taste better and the preparation more seamless. Here are quick last minute tips to help you pull off the holiday dinner without a hitch.

  • Heat plates and meat platters at 300 degrees for 5 minutes so food will stay hot longer.
  • Ice, ice and more ice. It is always needed in big quantities. Get what you think you need, and then add an extra bag.
  • Let the turkey rest after roasting by removing it from the roasting pan and letting it sit about 20 minutes before carving. The juices will go back into the meat, giving you a moister main dish.
  • Toasting nuts will intensify the flavor of pecans and other nuts used in salads and other dishes. Put them on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350-degree oven about 7-8 minutes.shutterstock_627603
