Park Avenue Potluck is another great book for Mother's Day...

Reading this well-organized, beautifully organized book allows one the chance to live vicariously like a Park Avenue socialite. Many of the recipes are family favorites and have personal stories which add interest and history to the recipes themselves. Photographs of the well-appointed dining interiors with freshly ironed linens, pretty antique china and simple but striking boquets help inspire as much as the recipes.

A particular favorite was Eggs in a Nest from Nicole Limbocker which is a simple concoction of English Muffin, eggs and ham with an elegant twist; to make the nest whipped egg whites are placed in the depression in the muffin and make a visually appealing and delcious dish (in less than 15 minutes!)
