10 menu ideas to impress your mom on her day

From the first moment you stuck a macaroni noodle onto a piece of construction paper, you’ve probably been attempting to make your mom the sweetest Mother’s Day handmade gifts she’s ever seen. You’ve written her some pretty wild poems, embroidered some “adorable” lumpy hearts on a pillow, maybe even graced her armchair with your take on a “crochet blanket.” And you do it because moms are the BEST – obviously she deserves to be treated like a #QUEEN on her special day!

Look, Mom! I Made This!

Now that you’re all grown up, perhaps it’s time to take your gift-giving skills to the next level: a delicious home-cooked meal! Whether you’re hosting Mother’s Day lunch or just bringing something over to her place to show her you care, her heart is sure to melt when she sees your time and effort – no need to be a master chef! Below, five recipes that you can totally knock out of the park to impress your mom.

If you’ve got one of those sweet-toothed mamas, she’ll absolutely adore these little muffins. The irresistible dulce de leche filling is a delicious surprise, and they’re perfect for passing around to other guests. And you know that if Mom likes anything better than her sweets, it’s sharing them with the ones she loves.
