Most would agree: Mom runs the kitchen 364 days of the year. But on May 12th, the dame of the house deserves a time-out from the heavy lifting. Make a promise to kick-off Mother’s Day perfectly with this meal planner. From the drinks to the eats, Mom can milk her morning in peace! The best part? Everything is kid-approved for ease, especially with Dad in the role as meal-prep pro.
Show A Latte Love for Mom
The basics are super simple: combine coffee with frothed milk to make this classic café favorite. And don’t be shy: add extras and flavors to make Mom swoon! Tip: let Dad do the steaming; kids can do the mixing! Check out our latte recipes for inspiration.
Nibble on Mini Whole Grain Raisin Muffins
Show-off your baking prowess by trotting out some muffins. Whole grains keep it filling while raisins, honey, and cinnamon sweeten this treat. Bake them in mini-muffin pans for littler nibbles. Tip: Dad’s helping hands make the baking portion a breeze!
Tempt her with Tomato Pesto Egg Casserole
This egg dish fits the mold (literally): it’s easy to make, plus a perfect dish to showcase some family teamwork in the kitchen. The casserole chills in the fridge for at least two hours before it’s baked, giving all the ingredients time to meld together. We love how the fresh tomatoes and pesto give this casserole a Mediterranean zip, while the bread, eggs, and gooey cheese help to make it a warm start to Mom’s most precious day. Tip: let the kids handle all measurements, mixing and even serving – Dad should man the oven!
Sweeten the Deal with Chocolate-Dipped Fruit Skewers
Nothing says special, decadent and oh-so deserved like Mom’s favorite fruit laced in chocolate. Simply skewer a few picks, like strawberries, pineapple and bananas, and then (generously) dip the fruit into her most beloved type of melted chocolate. Tip: kids help Mom dip a bit less daintily!
A breakfast made with love is one of the best gifts you can give Mom this Mother’s Day. We’ve got lots of recipes to look through for inspiration, and tons of crafts and entertaining ideas on our Pinterest page too!
