Easy Dessert Recipes for Mother's Day

May 8, 2014
Mother's Day is a holiday that many people look forward to and love to celebrate with family members. Mother's Day is a day to show appreciation to the mothers in your life and give thanks for all that they do for you. Mother's Day will strike the 100th anniversary of being celebrated in the United States but actually has a long world-wide history which stretches all the way back Ancient Rome and Greece, where people celebrated their different Mother Goddesses. Then in England during the 1600s people celebrated a holiday called Mothering Day. Mothering Day celebrated mothers and children gave small gifts like cakes to their mothers.

It wasn't until the early 1900s when Mother's Day found a place on American calendars and became an official holiday. After the death of her mother, Anna Jarvis, became an advocate for a holiday specifically to celebrate and thank mothers everywhere for all they do. In 1908 the first American Mother's Day celebration occurred at a local church where Anna's mother had her funeral services. Anna wanted to celebrate the life of her mother and the duties all mothers perform. The holiday caught fire and soon was celebrated in a variety of countries such as China, Japan, Mexico, Canada, and countries throughout South America. It was from the popularity that President Wilson made Mother's Day an official holiday on the 2nd Sunday of May.  Since it has been a popular holiday celebrated throughout the world.


What are you doing this Mother's Day to show your mother your gratitude? A great way to show your mother how much she means to you is by cooking her a special treat on Mother's Day. Like those that celebrated Mothering Day, why not give the gift of desserts to your mother this holiday? Below are some tasty treats and ideas to create this Mother's Day. These are easy dessert recipes and will make any Mother's Day fun and filling!

Eliminate Food Waste when Dining Out

May 1, 2014
Did you know that 1.3 billion tons of food are not consumed globally every year? While that number may seem staggering, did you know Americans are the leading culprit, with 40% of food harvested in America never being consumed? Food waste in America has grown to be an epidemic problem and one that only continues to cause problems. April, is officially Earth month, and is dedicated to the upkeep and importance of recycling, reusing, and sustaining our Earth for generations to come. One area that needs to be improved on, not only during Earth month, but during all the months, is the amount of food waste in America.


You may be wondering, just why does food waste in America pose as a problem or even a problem for the world? First, having high quantities of food waste in America, equals to money going directly down the drain. In a 2012 issue paper from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) it was found that, “The average American family of four ends up throwing away an equivalent of up to $2,275 annually in food”. Not only are families losing money due to food waste in America, but so is the American economy. According to the Scientific American, “Approximately 2.5 percent of the US energy budget is “thrown away” annually as food waste. This is equivalent to the energy contained in hundreds of millions of barrels of oil. Instead of wasting food take steps, even if you eat out, to not waste any food!

We need to take action together, not just during Earth Month, but during all the months to actively fight against food waste. Taking steps to eliminate food waste is easy. Even if you are eating out, you can help in the fight against food waste! Following these steps from your favorite Rapid City restaurant, Shooters Wood Fire Grill, will not only help the environment but can help the future of our world. 

• Leftovers and Freezing- Many times there will be leftovers to meals, especially with large restaurant portions. Instead of trashing them, eat them as leftovers later that day or take them to work as lunch. You can also learn great tips for freezing food, pickling food, or even canning food to preserve the food or meal until a later date. 

• Just Say No to Trash- Avoid throwing things away in your trash. Brought home leftovers but now don't want them? Don't pitch them! Instead see if you can share your meal with another family member or even a neighbor! Not only will it be a nice gesture, but you will be helping the environment and reduce food waste in America. 

• Eat What You Buy- Instead of ordering lots of food at a restaurant, order only what you know you will eat. Unsure of what you are in the mood for? Share your food, family-style, like in Asian countries. Order several small dishes and have everyone fill their plates. This will not only save money, but it will allow you to sample more things on the menu and take a stand against food waste.

These tips to eliminate food waste when you are eating out are easy to follow and can make a difference! Stop by Shooters Wood Fire Grill, your Rapid City restaurant for delicious food and tasty drinks! We promise, our food is so good…you won't want to stop eating! For more information on Shooters Wood Fire Grill contact us today at 605-348-3348!
