Kids' Club Mother's Day Cake Decorating

2. So Much Fleur to Adore

We love this time of year as splashy blooms fill our stores and are timed perfectly for Mother’s Day. Fresh flowers, Italian Heather, hanging baskets, succulents, and more! These beauties aren’t just pleasing to the eye, but they are top-notch quality, too. Stop in for floral bouquets that are pre-wrapped and assembled for your convenience.

3. Breakfast in Bed for Mom

From Homemade Extra Gooey Cinnamon Rolls to Crab Eggs Benedict (pictured below) and a Signature Omelet, we’ve got you covered with recipes so mom can have breakfast in bed. Or, skip the mess in the kitchen and grab a DLM Quiche (on sale this week).

4. Take a Cooking Class with Mom

A cooking class at the DLM Culinary Center is the perfect way to spend time with mom. Soak in a new technique for icing a cake, make pasta, or learn the art of sushi making. The best part for mom (besides the delicious food) will be getting to spend quality time with you. Pick the perfect class from our extensive summer schedule.

5. Strawberry Dipped Deliciousness

Let mom know just how sweet she is with this treat! We’re setting up shop at the front of each store dipping luscious strawberries in decadent white and dark chocolate and then rolling them in a variety of toppings. Join us 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, May 12.

 

 

Cinco de Salsa y Guacamole!

Cinco de Mayo is a salsa party at DLM. Here’s why—back for the season are two of my favorites that we make right here, Salsa Verde and Salsa Roja. If you haven’t tried them, stop by this week and get a taste.

The Salsa Verde is made with fresh tomatillos that we roast over high heat. We add lots of organic lime juice to ramp up the bright, citrusy flavor of this salsa. Although it is pretty darn good with tortilla chips, I love it as sauce that I put over things like grilled fish (think Mahi Mahi or tilapia) or a simple grilled DLM Natural Chicken Breast garnished with a couple slices of ripe avocado.  Try it over some soft scrambled eggs this weekend, you won’t’ regret it!

The Salsa Roja has a slightly sweet, smoky flavor because we roast the fresh Roma tomatoes, onions, and Poblano peppers together over high heat until they get blistered and charred. Then we pulse them all together in a food processor until slightly puréed. So of course it’s great with the regular line up chips, quesadillas, and tacos. Personally, I like this one spooned over a grilled DLM Natural Beef Skirt Steak with some warmed tortillas on the side.

Of course you can’t forget the guacamole! You can always pick up a tub of DLM Guacamole from Produce, or if you make it yourself, be sure to check out a couple of our nifty tools to help. The Ultimate 3-in-1 Tool Kit from Cookut helps you make perfect guacamole in 3 minutes, plus helps you prepare, serve, and store all in one kit! You can also help keep your guacamole fresher longer with the Guac-Lock that seals without losing flavor or color by creating an airtight seal. Olé!
