Mother's Day Menu Ideas

Mother's Day Menu Ideas

Have you decided what you're doing for Mother's Day yet? I wish, wish, WISH my kitchen was done because then I could invite my whole family over and treat them to lots of goodies in an amazing new space, but alas, and I know you're probably going to be shocked when you hear this, it's taking longer than we expected!! Big surprise, huh?!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it'll be ready for Memorial Day!! Anyway, if you are lucky enough to have the use of a working kitchen now, I thought you might like some ideas about what to serve for those special Moms in your life.  I've covered brunch, dinner and dessert just 'cause those seem to be the most popular times for Mom Day celebrations, but feel free to swap in lunch, afternoon tea or whatever. I'd be thrilled to make and eat anything on the list--hint, hint!! No matter what you do, make sure to give your mom a big hug and kiss--remember, you wouldn't be here without her!!
