Julia Ward Howe in 1870 was so distraught from the carnage of the Civil War that she called for a International Mother's Day to celebrate peace and motherhood. Her quest was taken up by a mother and daughter from West Virginia and finally in 1908 the first official Mother's Day observance was held. Carnations were used at this celebration and is considered the traditional Mother's Day flower; white for remembrance of deceased mothers and pink or red for those still living.
Cloverfield Farm & Kitchen's Janine Washle is celebrating Mother's Day in her own creative way. She says modern celebrations shower Mom with gifts, flowers, and food to express appreciation for everything she has done. Not just carnations but any fresh flower, especially annuals, to freshen up the landscaping is a popular gift, but what if Mom lives in an apartment or has scaled back on gardening?
Several inspiring floral ideas such as paper flowers, a handmade flower ring with interchangeable flowers, and a floral garland that Mom can use inside or out will help you plan your gift.
If your Mother's Day celebration is more food oriented, creative breakfast ideas and even a picnic on the lawn may be part of your day.
Washle has ideas for two different types of Moms. To pamper Mom, she offers a breakfast idea of Fancy French Toast or savory Cornmeal Crepes with Roasted Vegetables. She also has some handmade gifts like paper carnations, wreath, ring, garland.
Or you might want to consider a Lawn Picnic: Either on a quilt or on a lounge chair, Mom is Queen for the day with this idea. Give Mom a crown, a scepter, and some corn hole bags. Corn hole bags are customized with sayings like, "I'm talkin' to you!", "Pull your pants up!" that she can toss at the youngster or Dad who isn't planting her flowers where she wants. After you finish enhancing her landscaping, you can enjoy a pressed sandwich, a vegetable salad, and a personal lemon pie.
Cornmeal Crepes with Roasted Vegetables
Makes: 12 crepes
1 7 oz pkg Martha White Sweet Yellow Cornbread and Muffin Mix
3 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
2 TB unsalted butter, melted
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup finely diced country ham
1-1/2 tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp salt
2/3 cup + 2 TB pesto
Pan Roasted Vegetables, recipe follows
Garnish: freshly grated Manchego cheese, or Parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, whisk together Martha White mix, eggs, milk, melted butter, flour, country ham, smoked paprika, and salt.
Lightly spray an 8" skillet with non-stick cooking spray and place over medium high heat. Pour ¼ cup of batter in center of pan and quickly rotate pan to cover bottom to form a thin pancake. Cook approximately 1 - 1-1/2 minutes, or until outer edges become dull and tiny holes start forming over surface. Flip with a thin-edged spatula and cook another 30 seconds. Continue until all the batter has been used. Spray skillet with non-stick spray as needed. Move crepes to a foil-covered plate to keep warm. (Can be prepared the night before, refrigerate) Prepare vegetables as directed.
To Assemble: Spread 1 TB of pesto over crepe. Put a few vegetables at bottom edge of crepe. Roll up and place seam side down on a serving platter. Continue until all crepes are filled and rolled.
To Serve: Place 2 crepes on a plate. Grate cheese over top. Serve immediately.
If components were prepared the night before, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill and roll crepes as directed but then place in a 13 x 9 casserole dish. Cover with foil and heat for 20-25 minutes just until heated through. Grate cheese over top and serve.
1 pound fresh asparagus, washed, trimmed, cut into approximately 3" lengths
1 medium yellow onion, peeled, halved, sliced into 1/8" slices
2 TB chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, thyme, rosemary
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes (any small tomato will work)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss together asparagus, onion, and mushrooms, and olive oil in a large bowl, tossing and stirring to coat with olive oil (add more olive oil if it looks dry). Add thyme, salt, and pepper. Toss again. Spread out on a large foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle tomatoes over top. Roast approximately 20-25 minutes or until vegetables start browning on edges and tomatoes give off juice. Stir occasionally. (Can be prepared the night before, refrigerate).
Spanish Pimento Cheese
Makes: approximately 4 cups
2 cups grated white cheddar cheese
1 cup grated manchego cheese
2/3 cups crushed marcona almonds or regular almonds
½ cup diced pimento or sweet piquillo peppers
½ tsp smoked sweet paprika
¼ tsp sea salt
½ tsp fresh lemon zest
1-3/4 cups good quality mayonnaise (Duke's)
Combine cheddar cheese, manchego cheese, almonds, pimento, paprika, salt, lemon zest and mayonnaise in large bowl. Stir until everything is thoroughly mixed. Pack into a container with a tight-fitting lid. Chill in refrigerator. Serve with celery sticks and crackers. Keeps well for about a week.

Janine Washle and her family live at the Cloverfields Farm and Kitchen in Big Clifty, Kentucky in Hardin County. CloverFields Farm & Kitchen, part of a century old farmstead, is our home and business. The McGuffin house, the original farmhouse, is a registered state landmark. CloverFields Farm has a prosperous farming history. They are continuing this rural story in their own unique way by the addition of CloverFields Kitchen a place to explore the past through food and merge it with our modern lifestyles.
CloverFields Farm is dedicated to the preservation of southern, especially Kentucky, food traditions. The kitchen is commercially-outfitted compliant with Health Department standards. In this kitchen I develop new recipes based on original ideas, inspirations from my culinary research, and most often according to what is in season.
On the farm, they make many gifts and specialty items. She is currently working on her first cookbook, but she also has a long resume developing recipes for several companies. She has also won several contests and cook-offs with her original recipes.
