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!
My mom will either have a beer, a glass of red wine, or a drink made with tequila, so she chose her favorites.
Frosted Watermelon Rosemary Frosé
Brunch is her favorite, I’ll often serve breakfast for dinner she loves it so much.
Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
Blackberry Lavender White Chocolate Scones
Bursting Blueberry Lemon Thyme Tarts
A few savory options for you.

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.

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)!
Thanks so much for your kind message and reading along! Happy birthday to your son:) Wishing you a wonderful Mother’s Day! xx
