Feed Your Mom (and Your Soul) with Recipes from Dr. Maya Angelou's Kitchen
Posted: Thu 05/09/2013 12:00 AM
Almost every evening, says Dr. Maya Angelou, friends drop by about dinnertime. "I wonder why?" she says with a smile and that famous laugh. There is no mystery, of course, because Dr. Angelou is known for her good cooking and expansive hospitality, which means there are always people around her table.
"You feel special when you cook for others," she says. "And you feel special when it's done for you."
Dr. Angelou says she learned how to cook by watching her mother and grandmother. When her mother and grandmother cooked, she recalls, it never seemed like work, and yet platters of food, beautifully presented, would appear on the table and uplift the spirits of guests. It's a precious lesson that she learned from the women in her family and that makes her own table a most welcoming one.
This Sunday, celebrate the women in your life. Invite them over to start the day with our Mother's Day premiere with Dr. Angelou, and serve them a special brunch with dishes straight from her kitchen. Get five recipes below!
