Cooking With Mom – Sharing Favorite Recipes

For many kids and adults, some of their favorite memories with Mom have been spent in the kitchen or around the dinner table. Whether she was whipping up a batch of your favorite chocolate chip cookies or making your favorite birthday meal, cooking with Mom is a memory that never fades. Many of us have such distinct memories of the food our Mothers have made over the years that a whiff of her home-made lasagna can bring back memories of family gatherings and stories.

For Mother’s Day, whether you’re celebrating with a special Mother’s Day brunch or recreating some of your Mom’s recipes for your own children, we think it’s incredibly important to share those recipes and memories from the one who started it all- your mom. If you’re thinking about gift ideas, compiling some of your favorite recipes together that Mom has made over the years is a sweet way to show her how much you pay attention to what she contributes to every event.

A few of Cardstore’s own Mother’s Day cards are kitchen and cooking-themed, perfect for that Mom or Grandma who always has something fresh coming out of the oven. Picking a card that lets you personalize the front with details about what you love most about her is another fun way to give Mom a shout out about some of your favorite things she’s made over the years. What are some of your favorite recipes passed down from your Mom?

The Story Behind the Card: Monster Truck Mama Mother’s Day Card

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, it can be really easy to pick out a generic Mother’s Day card that thanks mom for all she has done for you through the years. While that’s sweet and certainly genuine, giving mom one of those cards can sometimes seem to be lacking a personal element that shows off what an incredibly unique and amazing mom she has really been. That’s where this week’s Story Behind the Card comes in: how to celebrate Mother’s Day by showing Mom you know what makes her really special and different from every other Mom.

CS_SC_BLG_04102013_SHELF_featTwo of Cardstore’s designers, Becca and Elizabeth, were looking to create a Mother’s Day card that could be personalized with a statement that shows what makes an individual mom stand out, so they came up with a card featuring a fabulous Monster Truck Mama. The card was originally going to call out Mom’s skills in the kitchen, but Becca and Elizabeth quickly realized the card was forgetting about all the non-conventional, extraordinary moms who brighten their children’s lives with their one-of-a-kind interests and passions. Inspired by Elizabeth’s own love of monster trucks, this card became a celebration of all the moms who don’t necessarily fit in the conventional mom box.

This Mother’s Day, why not take a similar cue and personalize a card that shows you love Mom for just being who she is, and for inspiring you to be yourself too. Whether you’re celebrating her passion for running half-marathons, obsession with Jane Austen novels, or even her love of monster trucks, it’s a cute way to emphasize what a unique role she plays in your life. What makes your mom really stand out?

The Story Behind the Card: Long Distance Mother’s Day Cards

Cardstore’s peek into the story behind the card this week comes from our designer Emily, and her experiences with spending Mother’s Day away from her mom who lives in Houston. Having moved away from her family, Emily really wanted a card that expressed how far she sends her love to her mom every year, no matter the distance or where she’s living. With this as inspiration, Emily created the Mother’s Day card entitled A Mother’s Day Wish From Here to There that celebrates how she’s sending her love from San Francisco all the way to Houston.

As kids grow up and move away, spending Mother’s Day away from home has become almost second nature to many daughters and sons. Thanks to Emily’s very personal Mother’s Day card design, Cardstore now has other long distance Mother’s Day cards that show how no matter the distance, you’ll always be there to send her your love and appreciation. How far away will you be from mom this Mother’s Day, and how do you plan on letting her know you’re thinking of her no matter the miles?

A Male Point-of-View on Mom

Women tend to always have a lot to talk to their moms about – from trivial to series, and everything in-between. Women can be great at expressing their feelings for their mothers and how much they mean to them, so Mother’s Day is usually smooth sailing, and finding the perfect card for the occasion can be easy. Men on the other hand sometimes have trouble letting Mom know just how much they mean, but if there’s any day to get it across it’s Mother’s Day. We thought we’d ask a guy (and fellow card expert) just how he goes about choosing the perfect Mother’s Day Card for his mom…

Tell us a bit about your mom

My mom is a generous, loving soul who raised 9 kids and made an estimated 48,600 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. That’s 300 per year, per child for 18 years. When she tried to estimate the number of cloth diapers she changed, washed, folded and put away, she smiled and said “a lot.” She’s heard from angry neighbors, teachers and cops about her little darlings, and had our backs around every corner. She’s little — about 5’2” — but when we were kids she could swear like a longshoreman.

So how do you choose the perfect card to give your mom on Mother’s Day?

There’s a saying in the card business that art attracts and copy sells, and that’s certainly true for me.  I look for something visually appealing that I think she’ll like, and start reading. Often it’s what it doesn’t say that will seal the deal.

Do you go for something funny, sentimental, cute?

It can be any of the above. Might depend on the year she had.  If the card is a nostalgic “remember when” approach, it might be funny. If it’s about our relationship now, I may even go mushy. Maybe I’ll even confess to some adolescent mischief she was unaware I’d engaged in.

What do you want to say to your mom on Mother’s Day?

Regardless of whether it’s sweet or funny, I want her to know that I love her and value all that she’s done.

Do you acknowledge any other moms on Mother’s?

Even though I’ve been divorced for many years, I still send my former mother-in-law a card for Mother’s Day. She’s played a part in many of my children’s happiest memories, and has always been a loving presence in their lives.

What do you think moms expect on Mother’s Day?

I think they want to be remembered for the many things they’ve done. All the little things – like making 48,600 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
