Mother’s Day Recipe Ideas

May 7, 2011


Sadly, I will not be spending Mother’s Day with my mom this year. She is halfway across the country spending the holiday with my little sister. If I didn’t know better, I’d begin to wonder if I’ve lost my place as “favorite daughter.” Good thing I know better.

For those of you who are spending the holiday with your mom, I’ve posted a few recipes below that may be helpful to your celebration. I just love the idea of doing a brunch type meal, which is precisely what I would be prepping for today if my mother weren’t rejecting me for my sister.  I am not bitter. I promise.


Strawberry Pound Cake with Basil Whipped Cream


Zesty Coconut Shrimp


Veggie Pot Pie


Lemon Pepper Asparagus Salad


Farfalle with Artichoke Hearts, Mushrooms and Peas


Homemade Nilla Wafers


Charoset Fruit Salad


Wash it all down with a Refreshing Lemon Sparkler.


Happy Mother’s Day! Give your mom a big hug and a kiss!
