A's Birthday + Mother's Day

This weekend I headed back to Columbus to celebrate A's birthday and spend Mother's Day with the greatest moms I know -- Nan, A and Cyd. We ate well, played a lot and enjoyed a long lazy day at 'Deer Camp' while storms rumbled, literally the entire day. Some highlights include…

Finally getting the chance to cook the family one of my feasts in honor of A's Birthday. The theme: French. The menu: Steak tartare (Kent's famous recipe… sorry, it's a secret), french onion fondue (recipe from our very own Maude's Liquor Bar in Chicago!), mussels in white wine, and bistro fries. Macarons from Chicago's French Market were icing on the cake. Hope you had a wonderful birthday, A…
