Simply Fresh Events Celebrates Mothers’ Day!
Here at the Simply Fresh kitchen, many of our favorite dishes harken back to sitting in our Mother’s kitchen, soaking up the sounds and smells of our favorite recipes. Something magical must have happened during that time for all of us since we now choose to spend our professional lives in a kitchen!
To celebrate Mothers’ Day, we wanted to share some of our Moms’ favorite recipes – some have even made guest appearances at SFE events!
