Mother’s Day

A lemon cake topped with blueberries on a table for Mother's Day

A delicious home cooked meal is the best way to show a little love on Mother’s day. Whip up a brunch with fluffy pancakes, blueberry muffins, and delicate egg dishes.

But it doesn’t have to stop there. Treat her to an afternoon agua fresca or white wine sangria, and start up the grill for dinner. From Dijon salmon to grilled lamb chops, a light and fresh dinner is undoubtedly something the whole family can enjoy.

And if she’s a sweets person, dessert is a must. Choose from chocolate covered strawberries, a decadent carrot cake or a raspberry souffle.
