Here’s to 40 Mother’s Day recipes to inspire you and your kids to get cooking for Mom.
Mother’s Day might look a little different this year with everyone celebrating at home but that doesn’t mean you can’t put together a delicious brunch in your own kitchen. Here are 40 Mother’s Day recipes that will work great for an “at home” brunch in bed or outside on the patio. Plus, there’s some sweet treat ideas so you can end brunch on a sweet note or serve them for dessert at dinner.
Get the kids involved too – there are some recipes that kids of all ages can make on their own with a little supervision from parents or older siblings. Other recipes give younger kids like mine lots of opportunities to help with prep and assembly or the all important decorating for mom! And other recipes are ideal for teens who want to try something new for a special occasion.
There’s something for every skill level so you can make sure mom has a great day feeling pampered by the whole family!
