Wednesdays used to be our Guest Blogger Series day; but, there’s just so many new and wonderful Paleo and real-food bloggers out there that we’ve expanded our series. We hope you enjoy the new view points and unique content; if so, we encourage you to show these guest bloggers your support by visiting their blog and social media links at the end of this post!
Today we are visited by Gourmande in the Kitchen who wants to share with you a round up of recipes for the celebration of Mother’s Day! This was a really thorough and helpful post that we know you all will enjoy. Visit Sylvie’s blog for her fantastic food photography and delicious recipes. She has a real knack for making everything she touches look fresh and delicious, which she shares at least once a week on her wonderful blog!
Mother’s Day is coming up soon and what better way to celebrate the moms in your life than to treat them to a special homemade meal or gift.
Forget store-bought presents and gift cards; I’d be willing to bet that what most moms want for Mother’s Day is for someone to just take of them for a change. (Well, that and maybe a good night’s sleep.) Perhaps that’s where the tradition of breakfast in bed or Mother’s Day brunch comes from; while husband and kids are busy preparing a delicious meal, mom finally gets to sleep in!
Hosting a small brunch at home can be a really thoughtful way to celebrate Mother’s Day while catching up with friends and family. Keep it simple and prep, assemble and cook as much ahead of time as possible, or just invite guests into the kitchen, put on a pot of coffee and have them lend a hand for a more casual affair. Some of our most cherished memories are made in the kitchen and around the table so make the meal a collaborative effort and let the moms relax for a change with a cup of coffee or a mimosa.
Whether you’re making mom breakfast in bed, treating her to brunch or want to surprise her with a special dessert or edible gift this year, I’ve put together a collection of recipe ideas that are sure to please. (Just make sure you do the dishes afterwards.)
And if you’re a mom then just hand this list to your family or leave it up on your computer screen until someone gets the hint!
