Happy Mother's Day and Congratulations Pauline and Peggy!

As you can see from this video still, my mother Pauline has been named 2009 Mother of the Year!

I'm so proud of her and even though she should have been honored long ago, better late than never.

Here is a link to watch the full video report about this prestigious award. Congratulations Mom! I love you and will see you soon.

In related news, Food Wishes Video Recipes is proud to announce the results of our first Annual Mother-in-Law of the Year Award. This year's inaugural winner is... Peggy Manfredi! Peggy is, and has been, a huge supporter of this site.

While her many contributions may go unnoticed to you, they are invaluable to me. Wow, imagine that, my mother and mother-in-law both being honored in the same year. Amazing.

I want to wish all you moms out there a very happy Mother's Day, and hopefully you had the forethought to make your kids and husbands watch a few of my video recipes, so they could make you a beautiful meal Sunday. Have a great day, and we'll see you back here Monday for more foodie fun. Hopefully your kitchens survive the weekend. Enjoy!

Our names are spelled exactly right! And, to all the gals out there, we wish you the good fortune that your son, or son-in-law, in my case, should be as wonderful as we have been blessed. You can only begin to imagine the feasts prepared for us over the years, and the good humor we are treated to when Chef John is with us. It is always a special occasion with Chef John, and we are soooooo lucky!!!!!

PS - You did a great job Pauline! Thanks for sharing him with me.

Take my comment off or she will know silly!

It's ok! I appreciate you catching it - she knows typos happen. No worries.

(I spelled Pauline wrong earlier)

Beautiful! You're very thoughtful, Chef John.

However, you're missing the financial wind-fall that could come about because of this. Meaning ... I would SO be willing to PayPal you some money if you'd put MY Mom's name and picture into that screen shot (wouldn't even need the video part) So I'm thinking if little unemployed me would pay for it, I'll bet others would as well.

Oh shoot! I should've watched the video BEFORE sending a comment. Oh well, my bad. I love the link that comes up at the end but I am disappointed that you won't be reaping a financial windfall.

Ok to not "approve" that prior message if you'd like to help me save face. (grin) Hey .. that's an idea.. there could still be money in it for you!

sorry, I published both! I like how you're thinking...
