Friday Eats: Mother’s Day

Is anyone else out there wondering what to make their mom for the perfect Mother’s Day?  Whatever it is, I can tell you that you won’t find it at a fast food chain or your local steakhouse.

Seriously, we’ve rounded up a couple different recipes and resources for you to create the perfect meal for your mom, whether a light breakfast, a hearty brunch, or even a dinner to remember.  Whether you have an hour or three hours to prepare a celebration for your family, you can find something wonderful in here.  Our feature recipe is Eggs en Cocotte: a savory combination of bacon, eggs, potatoes, and cream baked in a ramekin.  If you’re any semblance of normal, I had your attention at “bacon,” I know.  This dish comes courtesy of Ceramic Canvas, who I immediately became a fan of for his wonderful photography and the personality of the food he cooks–vibrant, comforting, exciting, and second-helping, please!  For the full recipe, click here.

But, if somehow bacon and eggs and potatoes and cream are not your thing (is there such a world?) and you’d like to try your hand at something healthier, or even a lunch or dinner dish, check out twelve great ideas from Southern Living here.  They cover the gamut from a low country boil to a rack of lamb to a towering chocolate cake.

And if you’re still set on the restaurant thing, or if you have a recipe already in mind for your main course, try out this recipe for Blackberry Jam Almond bars from 17 and baking (one of my favorite new baking bloggers).

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hello! Welcome to the Thirty Seven West Blog

Hi there.  Some of you have known us for years as Labels America.  Some of you have just stumbled upon us recently as Personalizedgiftsjustforu.com.  We are pleased to announce that we are now a combination of both products and services, bringing you the best of both personalized gifts and custom woven labels, as a company now known as Thirty Seven West.  Not only are we poised to grow exponentially as a company, but we have revamped our services and systems to match our unparalleled quality of products.

The reason I’m telling you all this is because, as a fun way to show you who we are beyond labels and gifts, we’ve introduced this blog as part of our company identity.  At the end of the day, and even the beginning of the day, we are just ordinary people like you.  We drink coffee, eat breakfast burritos, read the news, like to get involved, and know that the world is big and wide and full of so many things beyond our business.  This blog will be a platform from which we’ll introduce you to some of our beloved clients, talk food, DIY projects, bring you the best of new design, fashion, and art on the web that we find interesting, suggest causes to get involved with, and just talk to you like normal people!

We want to know what you’re thinking, what you’re into, and we want to be a part of that.  We recognize that it’s a creative, collaborative world out there, and we just want to join in on the fun.

Cheers,

The team at Thirty Seven West

(Psst… Keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter for more fun!)
