If you’re still undecided about what to do with your mother this Sunday, plan an elegant lunch or dinner at home. Chef and mom Katy Sparks created a vibrant Lemony Chicken Fricassee with Shallots and Morels that comes together in 30 minutes. By crisping the chicken in butter first, she adds quick flavor to the dish, which makes an ultra springy dinner party centerpiece. If saving family time doesn't appeal, David Bouley's Pot-Roasted Chicken with Mushrooms requires just over an hour of cooking for those who'd rather stay occupied in the kitchen while relatives sit back with refreshing cocktails.

Chips and pretzels are so pedestrian. At this year’s Sweets & Snacks Expo in Chicago, the New York Daily News reports that new, trendy snacks included healthier options like sheets of seaweed, freeze-dried mango and roasted, seasoned chickpeas. Those wanting to get a jump on the trend can make F&W’s recipe for Crispy Chickpeas at home in just half an hour. Of course, garbanzo beans can be more than just a snack. This Moroccan-style Couscous with Chicken and Chickpeas makes a fast and flavorful weeknight meal.

Danny Meyer is looking to take his restaurant empire to new heights. According to the New York Times, the Shake Shack mogul submitted a bid (along with six other companies) to operate 1 World Trade Center's forthcoming observation deck, which will be the highest of its kind in New York City. At 1,200 above street level, the observatory will offer views that stretch far beyond the city into New Jersey and Westchester, but given Meyer's reputation for superb restaurants, the draw would be for more than just the view if he secures the space. Home cooks can recreate recipes from Meyer’s inspired restaurants, like these quick Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Breasts from Gramercy Tavern. The chicken is basted with butter and topped with a rich sauce made from pureed chicken livers for a hearty mid-week meal.
