Cooking for Mother’s Day.
We’ve got a round-up of recipes to inspire your Sunday cooking for mom — or, if you’re a mother, an easy hand-off of what you’d like your kids to make for you.

Stay tuned every Monday for new episodes (we’ll continue to run recaps on Tuesdays on The Bittman Project). In the meantime, get caught up with these earlier episodes.

Kayla Stewart on Lena Richard.
Our columnist Kayla Stewart knocks it out of the park in her piece on Lena Richard, running later this month. “In 1949, a boisterous Creole chef made history. Dressed in a cooking uniform and donning an apron, New Orleans NBC-affiliate, WDSU, aired the first of many episodes of “Lena Richard's New Orleans Cook Book.” Airing twice a week through 1950, its host, Lena Richard, would become the first Black woman to have her own cooking television show, breaking barriers imposed by the Jim Crow Era-south, and helping the Black roots of Creole cuisine.”
All things Holly Haines.
ICYMI, a round-up of terrific recipes and this week’s discussion from one of our favorite home cooks.
A celebration of herbs.
Kerri Conan celebrates the spring bounty of fresh herbs with a mid-May “What’s for Dinner.” (We’re smitten with the herb cart that allows her to follow the sun).
Gearing up for summer cooking.
Stay tuned for ideas for what to cook and how we’re spending Memorial Day and this year’s summer kickoff.
Speaking of Memorial Day, it’s grilling season.
Our second May discussion on summer cooking is Thursday, May 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. ET.
Looking forward to hearing what you’re excited to make.
