Luxurious Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict   


◻ 4 English muffins, split

◻ 8 slices of smoked salmon

◻ 8 eggs

◻ 1 tbsp white vinegar

◻ 1 cup Hollandaise sauce (store-bought or homemade)

◻ Fresh dill, for garnish

◻ Capers, optional for topping

Get your Hollandaise sauce from Redlands Ranch Market!


Toast the English muffins until golden brown.

Poach the eggs in simmering water with a tbsp of white vinegar to help the whites set faster. Cook for about 3-4 minutes for a soft yolk, or longer as desired. Warm the smoked salmon in a pan over low heat or in the microwave.

Assemble by placing a slice of warm smoked salmon on each muffin half, followed by a poached egg. Drizzle Hollandaise sauce generously over each egg.

Garnish with fresh dill and a sprinkle of capers if using. Serve immediately with a side of fresh fruits or a green salad for your mother and make this day a little extra special for her!

Creamy Asparagus Soup   


◻ 2 tbsp unsalted butter

◻ 1 medium onion, chopped

◻ 2 cloves garlic, minced

◻ 1 pound fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

◻ 3 cups vegetable broth

◻ 1/2 cup heavy cream

◻ Salt and black pepper to taste

◻ Lemon zest, for garnish

◻ Crème fraîche or sour cream, for serving


In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.

Add the asparagus pieces and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until the asparagus is tender, about 15 minutes.

Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth. Stir in the heavy cream and season with salt and black pepper. Heat through.

Serve the soup hot, garnished with a dollop of crème fraîche or sour cream and a sprinkle of lemon zest.

◻ 2 cups cooked chicken breast, sliced

◻ 1 tbsp olive oil

◻ 2 cloves garlic, minced

◻ 1 cup heavy cream

◻ 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté until fragrant. Add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Stir in the grated Parmesan cheese until melted and the sauce is smooth.

Add the cooked chicken slices to the sauce and heat through. If the sauce is too thick, thin it with a few tbsp of reserved pasta water.

Toss the cooked pasta into the sauce until well coated.

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley. Serve hot, ensuring a generous portion for mom.

Decadent Chocolate Lava Cakes   


◻ ½ cup unsalted butter

◻ 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips

◻ 2 eggs

◻ 2 eggs yolks

◻ ¼ cup sugar

◻ 2 tsp flour

◻ Ice cream or whipped cream, for serving


Preheat your oven to 425°F (218°C). Grease four small ramekins with butter and dust with cocoa powder.

Melt the butter with the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second bursts, stirring in between until completely smooth.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolks, and sugar until light and fluffy.

Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until combined. Sift the flour over the chocolate and egg mixture and fold until just mixed. Divide the batter among the prepared ramekins. Place them on a baking tray.

Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges are firm but the center is still soft. Let them cool for a minute, then invert each mold onto a plate and let the lava flow.

Serve immediately with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Pear and Blue Cheese Tart   


◻ 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed

◻ 2 ripe pears, thinly sliced

◻ 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

◻ 1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves

◻ 1 tbsp honey

◻ 1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted


Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Roll out the puff pastry on a lightly floured surface to fit a 9×13 inch baking sheet. Transfer the pastry to the baking sheet.

Arrange the thinly sliced pears in a single layer over the puff pastry, leaving a small border around the edges. Sprinkle the crumbled blue cheese and thyme leaves evenly over the pears.

Drizzle the melted butter and then the honey over the top of the pears and cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the pastry is puffed and golden brown.

Let the tart cool slightly before cutting into pieces. Serve warm or at room temperature.
