I’m sharing a roundup of my mom’s top favorite recipes to enjoy for Mother’s Day! Mother’s Day is such a special holiday…all moms deserve to be spoiled. These light and fresh recipes are perfect for gathering with your mom (or a mother-like figure). I’m sharing some sweet brunch recipes, quick appetizers, and mom’s selections for dessert.

Not our usual Friday post, but I’ve been trying to listen to you all a bit more and share more recipe collections. I know so many of you really enjoy them! Plus, when it comes to Mother’s Day, I always have a good amount of recipes inspired by my sweet mom.

She LOVES a brunch dish, sweet dessert, and even a fun cocktail or two. So sharing all of her favorites below!

To me, food is the best (and easiest) way to show loved ones you care. Cooking a meal that I know friends and family will love is the number one reason I love to cook. It’s really why I started to cook in the first place.

Hopefully, this list helps you all share something special with your mom this year. And of course, if you’re someone who’s not celebrating today, you can always have a fun day for yourself and make something yummy!

Cocktails 

My mom will either have a beer, a glass of red wine, or a drink made with tequila, so she chose her favorites.

  1. I have so many cookbooks, but when I purchased yours and started getting the amazing recipes you share online, I find it difficult to even look at any of the other cookbooks or recipes from my past and I’ve been cooking for 50 years. Thanks for sharing your amazing cooking talent with all of us.

    1. Hey Deb,
      Wonderful!! Thank you so much for making the recipe, I am so glad to hear that it was enjoyed!! Have the best week:) xxT

  2. My “baby” turns 21 on Mother’s Day and my errand list today included going to the store to purchase ingredients to make him your Nonnie’s ice cream cake – a family favorite. It will do double duty for birthday/Mother’s Day here. Loved seeing it on your Mom’s favorite list this morning!
    Say “hello” to your parents and Happy Mother’s Day to your Mom (she’s a great one)!

    1. Hey Victoria,

Thank you Tieghan for making my weekly menu something filled with yum foods I look forward to making! Much love!!!
