100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Eggs 8 Ways: Mother's

Look No Further: It's a meal for all time


  • Hilary Corrigan

The "Perfectly Sunny" at Mother's in Bend has everything you could ever need or want for any meal ever again.

A hash of sweet potatoes, kale, caramelized onions, roasted tomatoes, avocado, micro-greens and a cilantro-mint pesto topped with two organic sunny-side up eggs.

It's a hearty but not heavy dish that will sustain you forever. Or close to it.

It's also insanely tasty.

"Just a play on different flavors," Mother's Executive Chef Renee Raymond said of the "Perfectly Sunny," as if she didn't create a life-sustaining work of art.

The pesto's also got some pumpkin seeds and golden raisins for sweetness.

"I was kind of going for a play on a pesto that was vegan," Raymond said.

But there's more to it than that. This is a dish that works for breakfast, lunch or dinner and keeps you well-powered for a very long stretch. And if you use the rainbow trick of eating meals made up of various colors to incorporate various nutrients, this may fill the color palette.

"All the super foods in one delicious meal," Raymond said.
