A Toast to Mom on Mother’s Day!

A Toast to Mom on Mother’s Day!

Mother’s Day is the perfect day to celebrate all the moms in your life, and to raise a toast to all of their hard work.  A fresh, crisp and light Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect wine to pair with Mother’s Day brunch. Egg dishes, smoked salmon and salads, or a Gluten Free, Spring Herb Frittata (see recipe below), are the accouterments to go with a chilled bottle of white wine. So when Sunday comes around, celebrate mom with a familiar “cheers!”  We wish all the moms a very Happy Mother’s Day!



  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, or more if needed
  • 2 tablespoons minced chives
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh herbs and greens, such as parsley, dill, basil, spinach or chard, (all carefully cleaned and dried, then torn into small pieces)
  • 12 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons shredded cheese such as sharp cheddar or gruyere
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat oven to 350F.
  • Thoroughly butter the bottom and sides of an 8-inch ovenproof skillet.
  • Place the pan over low heat; when the butter becomes warm, add the chives or onions.
  • Heat gently, just until they begin to give off a little fragrance.
  • Add the herbs and greens and, if necessary, a little more butter.
  • Stir so that all the flavors mingle.
  • While the greens are heating, beat the eggs, milk, cheese, and a little salt & pepper into a large bowl.
  • Add the egg mixture to the greens and stir with a fork, taking care to avoid scraping the fork along the bottom of the pan.
  • While working with the fork in one hand, shake the pan continuously to prevent the frittata from sticking.
  • Put the pan into the oven and cook for about 25 minutes until the eggs are set and slightly puffed up.

Variations: Add some smoked salmon or prosciutto to the egg mixture.
