Sunnyfields LOVES Baltimore!

A BIG thank you to our home town Baltimore as the new and different Sunnyfields celebrates it’s 2-year anniversary. The iconic eclectic gift shop building which has been part of the Falls Road landscape for more than 50 years, has been gutted and repurposed into a sun-drenched cabinetry showroom.

Right in time for Mother’s Day, University of Baltimore MFA candidate Tara Orchard writes about working with her mom in the kitchen. In the beginning, her mom taught her how to crack an egg and cook an elaborate meal, then the tables turned.

My mother’s kitchen is small. And in a small kitchen, there is one thing that you need to know: you need to dance—in a manner of speaking. Since my mother and I developed our own dance long ago, there is never a problem when we cook and there hasn’t been for many years. A hand to the hip—step to the side. A reach across—take a step back. Just saying a name: Get out of my way, woman, this pot is hot! Like many things though, this dance took time, and it had to start somewhere.

With April now just a memory – it passed by in a flash, didn’t it? – it’s now time to buckle down and think about Mother’s Day, which sneaks up on us early this year on Sunday, May 8.

Fortunately, restaurants all over Baltimore are hosting special Mother’s Day brunches and dinners, so even if you’ve left plans for mom until this very last minute, you’re covered. Here’s a look at some of what’s happening around town for the holiday:

Just in time for Mother’s Day, University of Baltimore MFA student Roxanne V. Young remembers her mom’s sage advice on black pride, self-confidence, and still more.

  1. I’m Black and I’m Proud (James Brown)

My mother was the consummate teacher in the classroom and in life.

It was a frigid January afternoon, but I was enjoying the warmth of rare one-on-one time with my mother. We both had skipped school that day to celebrate my 10th birthday. On January 18, 1965 we sat down at the lunch counter at a Baltimore Woolworth’s. It was my first time dining out with my mother. While we waited for the waitress, she took a few minutes to discreetly give me a quick lesson on proper table etiquette.
