Following last year’s inaugural Mother’s Day cookbook’s success, we called out to our homeowners for their favourite family recipes with a sweet-tooth spin this year. Our enthusiastic homeowners across Serenitas communities shared delicious recipes, and 20 extraordinary recipes, including RV Homebase’s Robyn Kelks Crunchy Snake Bites, made it to this year’s Sweet Moments Cookbook.
Our CEO Rob Nichols commented, “The Mother’s Day cookbook was a huge success last year, celebrating the many wonderful home cooks within our communities and paying homage to the many women, past and present, who have made a significant and lasting impact in our lives. Due to popular demand and overwhelmingly positive feedback, we have created a new Mother’s Day cookbook because it’s the right of every mum, grandma and great-grandma to spoil loved ones.”
From watching our mums or grandmothers cook and bake, to sharing a sweet treat with a cup of tea, to serving up a showstopper dish to celebrate a special moment, food is a powerful connector. All the Sweet Moments Cookbook recipes embody meaningful moments and capture the love synonymous with our mothers’ powerful presence in our lives.
Robyn Kelk, who recently moved to RV Homebase with her husband, says her Crunchy Snake Bites go down like a treat at community events and bakes a batch when her children and grandchildren come to visit Fraser Coast.
“The Mother’s Day Sweet Moments Cookbook is a tribute to the many memories that are etched forever in our hearts and minds, as most recipes have been passed down through the generations and shared at special moments. These memories are brought back to life as we cook and share these favourite treats,” adds Rob Nichols.
With over 20 recipes from Serenitas homeowners and staff, the Mother’s Day Sweet Moments Cookbook features favourite go-to recipes that are perfect for when you need to quickly whip up a batch of biscuits or slice celebratory cake or decorate a flan and everything in between.
As Anna Brown, Resort Manager at Thyme Mareeba, aptly puts it, “Nowadays whenever the family gets together, we always say Mum is with us because there is always a dish that makes us think of her.”
The Mother’s Day Sweet Moments Cookbook is a beautiful, memorable keepsake for Serenitas homeowners and an essential reminder to cherish the women, past and present, who have impacted our lives as we serve their sweet delights to family and friends.
