Mother's Day


I am so glad there is a day to celebrate the moms of the world!  I am especially happy that I get to celebrate the best one in the world…. My mom!!  I may be a bit biased, but she is pretty much best in class. 

I am excited to make brunch for my mom this weekend.  I am trying some new recipes, including one of her favorite Mexican dishes we enjoy on the beach in Cabo.  If it is a success you will be seeing it on Perfecting the Pairing!

Here are some recipe ideas to celebrate the mom in your life!

Breakfast/Brunch
Bacon, Leek, and Cheddar Tart – This is great when you want to do something extra special for mom.  The presentation is lovely and the flavors are delicious!
Tomato Pie – My mom’s personal favorite!  This is great at any time of the day. 
Baked Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal – This takes only a few minutes to whip up so you can have it ready in time for breakfast in bed!
Customizable Bread Bowl Breakfast – A fun brunch idea that keeps everyone busy and happy.

Main Meal
Oven Roasted Salmon in a Lemon Broth with Pea Puree – Mom will feel pretty special if you serve this to her on Sunday.
Cucumber Sandwiches – Perfect for a light lunch or afternoon tea!
Warm Potato and Tuna Salad over Arugula – This salad is a meal by itself.  It is healthy and scrumptious.  Another one of my mom’s favorites.

Dessert
Grandma Rosie’s Ice Cream Dessert – A famous recipe from my sweet Grandma Rosie!  You can make it ahead of time and keep it in the freezer until you are ready to serve it after dinner.
Outrageous Brownies – What mom does not love a good brownie?
Berries and Cream – Simple, light, and delicious!




Love you mom!  Thank you for everything that you do.
