Mother’s Day brunch for our favorite moms


Mother’s Day elicits such special memories for many of us. Reminders of the woman who helped to shape us. A woman who can be described by innumerable adjectives – strong, wise, gentle, firm, supportive, truthful – and who is as protective as a lioness with love that has no boundaries.

There is a Jewish proverb that says “God could not be everywhere so he created mothers.”

Whether yours was a chef, homemaker, business executive or all of the above, we can all agree with this proverb that depicts endless and tireless maternal responsibility.

At Tamarisk we are so fortunate to be surrounded by our “resident moms.” They watch over staff and fellow residents with the same care and concern as they do with their own family. Our annual Mother’s Day Brunch is the event we set aside to honor these accomplished and compassionate women. We are inspired by them every day, and it is indeed our honor and our pleasure to care for them.

Following, you will find recipes that we include in our brunch. We hope you enjoy them.

If you would like any information about Tamarisk or would like to join us for lunch or dinner,  please contact Susan Adler, director of marketing and outreach at 401-732-0037 or
