I'm a thirty-something Alaskan food blogger.
If you're going out rather than cooking at home for Mother's Day, here are some brunch suggestions nation-wide from Gourmet Live: http://www.gourmet.com/food/gourmetlive/2012/050912/10-unbeatable-brunch-spots
I have a lodge pre-seasoned 12-inch and the enamel dutch oven (green). Got both for a great price and love them. Hope this helps!
Excited about this. Sent you three of my favorite posts. :)
