A Memorable Mother’s Day

Mother's Day 2012

She created countless family memories around the dinner table over bowls of her famous fried spaghetti. She drove the carpool to high school field hockey games with a tray of hot apple turnovers and a tub of ice cream in the passenger seat, dishing out turnovers à la mode at red lights. She taught me that sour cream and pudding mix make every baked good better.

You’ve seen the name “Noni” mentioned often on Just a Taste, but what you might not know is that Noni is my mom, and she is the biggest inspiration behind every post I publish. She is an incredible cook and an even better mother and wife. Although I try to thank her on a daily basis for all that she does for our family, I want to recognize her on her special day by sharing just a few of the recipes she has inspired. Happy Mother’s Day to my mom Noni and to mothers everywhere!
