You could give Mom flowers, or you could give her one of these...

Mother's Day isn't that far away, so here are few ideas for all those busy moms you know.

Seasons Catering is offering a busy mom discount on their upcoming Crockpot Meals class, on Wednesday April 21st at 6pm. For $30 you can add a few new "do ahead" meals to your repertoire and if you let them know ahead of time, and bring your pot, they'll demo the meal in it and you can take it home (first come first served). I took one of Daisy's classes a few months back (see photo above), and it was amazing. Good food, good company, and lots of great recipes, tips and pointers.

Here's the menu for the night. . .
Chipotle Chicken Tacos, Cinnamon Spiced Pork Ribs, Slow Roasted Beef Sandwiches with Horseradish Cream Sauce, Moroccan Spiced Chicken with Apricots, Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pudding Cake. How can you resist?

Trying to come up with something fun to do on Mother's Day? Here's an idea. Take mom on a picnic at Old Creek Ranch Winery in Oak View. Everything is in bloom, its a beautiful spot for a picnic with your family, and you can enjoy delicious wine while you take in the view. Old Creek Ranch is like a little oasis, and its only 10 minutes from downtown Ventura.

And if you're a Mom, another thing on your mind these days might be summer camp. Well, Playing in the Kitchen has just released their summer cooking camp schedule. Chef Robin is an incredible teacher and just might inspire your picky eater to become an adventurous foodie. Read more about kids cooking classes in an article I wrote last year for Edible Ojai.
