Lots of times, I get involved with projects and pour myself into these endeavors because I feel they make me a better person. In this case, being named the Viking Brand Ambassador has helped me in my motherhood and in raising my family because I can have more fun in the kitchen cooking up something good for when my children sit down at the table to eat.
Truth is, it’s inspiring to cook on such superior equipment.
If y’all have visited my blog before, you know that I have always enjoyed being in the kitchen. My mother enjoys cooking and would often put together a sit down family style meal, (at the drop of a hat) for as many as fifty people in our home, while I was growing up. In fact, because my mom cooked such elaborate meals, I often found myself trying to come up with clever desserts to serve the family, after her sumptuous meals were devoured.
As an adult, I find comfort in being in the kitchen. I get excited over fresh ingredients from the local Saturday Markets, and I look forward to entertaining so I can try new recipes with friends.
I have friends who I like to cook with and other friends who I enjoy hosting pot lucks for, because it’s through the pot lucks that I can widen my recipe arsenal. Of course, out of all of these things, I enjoy getting in the kitchen with my family the most.
So when Sabs and I got to talking about our love of cooking and entertaining, we came up with the idea to get some ladies in the Viking Kitchen Showroom to teach them something new, and introduce them to the range of professional appliances that I have been crushing on since I was a young girl.
The whole concept originally came out of the fact that we just wanted to get into the kitchen with some friends who might be considered “kitchen challenged.”
Aside from bringing the ladies together to foster friendship and sisterhood, I wanted to share the ease with which meals can be prepared for our families on VIKING equipment.
So, Sabs and I planned a menu and asked some of our friends if they wanted to join us…
Some of these ladies are really good friends of ours. Some are new friends we have met through social media and by following one another, we all got to convene in the kitchen. Once we started cooking it was as if we were friends from the start…
Here are the ladies behind this very first Mother’s Day Treat from Viking for #MothersWhoBrunch:
We came. We cooked. We laughed. We bonded. I am inspired by these mommas because we can all bring different things to the “kitchen” table 🙂
And this is what it looked like…
Getting in the kitchen.
Cooking up something good.
Learning something new…
And inspiring one another…
If you’re a momma then you know one of the things we like to do is share.
Remember: Sharing is Caring.
So, another thing we did was to ask all the mommas to contribute a recipe for BRUNCH that they love and prepare at home. Together, we put together this printable recipe booklet for you. You can see some of the recipes that we prepared in the slideshow up above. My favorite things to prepare from this booklet (and from my kitchen) are the pancakes and the quiche. My kids are familiar with both of these dishes because I serve them often in our home.
If you try any of the recipes we have shared here 🙂 Be sure to post a pic and tag us on IG with #MothersWhoBrunch 🙂 We would love to see what you come up with!
This super fantastic event would not have been possible without the full support of Viking. The folks over at Viking (like me) believe that the kitchen is indeed, the heart of every home, and they want to make sure that Mommas here the Philippines understand that Viking appliances are an investment worth making, not only for their homes but for the love of their families. I think this is why it was so easy to bring these mommas together, it was an event that would benefit the family…in the heart of the home…where momma’s can cook up some kitchen goodness…
