Don’t hate me, but I was invited to a Mother’s Day Brunch– torn from the magazine pages of their May issue– and prepared at Everyday Food’s real test kitchen within the Martha Stewart offices. Yes, I consider this an early Mother’s Day gift. Because really? It was a divine and rare treat.

So much can change in five years, or even one year! What was your family doing this time last year?
We’ve been admiring those Ukranian dyed eggs, called Pysanky for quite some time. They are amazingly beautiful and delicate wax resist artworks, that look like they would be very fun for an adult to attempt or an older child, but probably utterly frustrating, too fiddly, or downright impossible for the younger kids, so I thought we’d try making a more simple craft that mimicked the technique, but with more simple tools and on a much larger scale.
To celebrate Earth Day tomorrow, the best thing you could do is nothing. Make no waste, don’t drive a car, don’t turn on the lights, don’t flush the toilet, don’t eat! OK, if that’s not practical, how about a recycled paper craft that you can do with the kiddos? But really, you could just cut back on the other things too.
