Mother’s Day Recipe Ideas

How do you plan to spend Mother’s Day this year? I love to host, and ever since getting married, I have made a special meal for my mother and one for my mother-in-law. However, this year will certainly be different than how I normally spend it. I am sure it will be for you too. Anyway, I thought I’d compile some ideas for you, whether it’s with just your immediate family or a social-distance gathering. And maybe, *wink, wink*, you could have someone else make it for you. :) Happy baking! xoxo


Apple Puff Pancakes

Light and fluffy pancakes with thinly sliced apples and sweet cinnamon.

Blueberry Buttermilk Pancakes

Made with all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour, these pancakes are light and fluffy and everything a pancake should be.

Coffee Cake

My grandmother’s recipe that is sure to please. Nutty streusel topping with a hint of cinnamon.

Cranberry Zucchini Muffins

With fresh cranberries, these muffins are a bit tangy!

Farmers Market Quiche

Using a store-bought crust makes this quiche a cinch! Filled with sweet tomatoes and fresh basil, it is hearty and filling.

Lavender Scones

Sweet pastry scones with lavender buds. Perfect by itself with an herbal tea or with a full breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon.

Lemon-Blueberry Muffins

Hint of lemon in these blueberry muffins. They go great as a breakfast side or a mid-morning snack. You can make them in regular sized muffin cups or minis!

Raspberry-Chocolate Chip Muffins

You can’t go wrong with chocolate and fruit! These muffins are definitely a sweet treat.

Strawberry Waffles

These are the best homemade waffles! No whipping up egg whites and folding into the batter, but they still are light and fluffy.

Surprise Muffins

Sweet muffin with a little bit of jam inside. I love to add raspberry, but you could add your favorite flavor!


7 Layer Bars

Everything you want in a sweet, little bar. Graham crackers, sweetened condensed milk, semi-sweet chocolate chips, pecans, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, and shredded coconut.

Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Make sure you use really ripe bananas for this recipe! Sweet cream cheese frosting complements nicely with a banana cake.

Black Bottom Brownies

A layer of brownies, then a layer of pillowy, cream cheese goodness, topped with chocolate chips. My absolute favorite brownie.

Chocolate Espresso Cookies

Chocolate dough with espresso powder, to give it a more intense chocolate flavor, and chocolate chips. A chocoholic-lover’s dream!

Chocolate Pudding Surprise

Crunchy crust? Cream cheese and pudding layer? Whip cream? Yup! This is a cool and refreshing dessert anyone will love.

Creamy Lemon Bars

A twist on an old classic. Crunchy crust, jam layer, and a lemon pudding topping.

Lemon Bars

Tangy, a little sweet, and a whole lot of lemon flavor! You can’t go wrong with this classic dessert.

Luscious Lemon Dessert

If you love lemons, then you’ll love this lemon pudding dessert. Crunchy, sweet, and tangy!

Lemon-Lavender Shortbread Cookies

Dried lavender cuts down the tartness of these shortbread cookies. With a crispy shortbread and creamy frosting, these are a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

Espresso Brownies

If you like fudgy brownies, you’ll love these!

Frozen Hot Chocolate

A cross between hot chocolate and a chocolate milkshake. Refreshing and cool!

Marionberry Cobbler

Did you know the marionberry was developed at Oregon State University? In the Pacific Northwest, where I live, these berries are plentiful. If you can’t find these where you live, blackberries will substitute just fine.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Surprise

Anything with pudding is difficult to photograph well, hence this picture. (And I wrote it in 2012 when this blog was young.) It is one of my sister’s favorite desserts and this picture doesn’t do it justice. Just trust me on this one.

Pecan Bars

Easy to make and full of chocolate, pecans, and coconut.

Raspberry Crumb Bars

Fresh raspberries are what make this fruity dessert. Sweet with a streusel topping.


Thanks for stopping by! I love baking and hope these recipes inspire you to create something wonderful in your kitchen. xoxo
