Recipes for Mother’s Day

When I started gathering recipes for Mother’s Day, there were so many things I wanted to include.

Finally, I narrowed it down to what I’d love to have someone cook for me. Dishes with enough flair (and maybe even a little “chi chi”) to be special that are still very do-able. And then I tried to narrow that down to my all-time faves, just a few in each category. I hope you’ll find something to inspire you. If not, check around.

Happy Mother’s Day, all.

      Hi Kat, I was taking care of my folks for about 2 1/2 years and they loved pancakes! I should have taken more advantage of that and made hundreds of different kinds, lol!! I can only eat so many.

    An early Happy Mother’s Day to you Molly.
    I love the redesign.
    I’ve been out of cooking commission for the last month
    due to shoulder surgery, so I have missed cooking your incredible
    compilations, as well as this one probably. But I absolutely love that you
    run with the theme and give so much inspiration .
    As always thank you for your incredible hard work.

      I was just thinking it had been a bit since I heard from you! I wish you the speediest of recoveries! I just keep hearing how important phy. therapy is with those shoulder surgeries. I’ve been sruggling for awhile with my shoulder, but my pup, Chance, is still such a spaz…no sense in doing anything until he can heel nicely or it will all be undone.

      And thanks so much! These design seems slow…we’ll see if I can stick with it and make it work or do something else, but I was due for a changeup! Spring cleaning for the blog, lol!

Hearing from you makes my day! Comment below.
