Top 10 Mother’s Day Recipes

I was talking recently with my sister-in-law about how silly Mother’s Day sometimes feels. It has become this holiday where mom’s spend time with their families going out to brunch, starting a garden, going for walks . . . . and while I love my family, that sort of sounds like a regular Sunday. Meanwhile Father’s Day has become a day where dad goes out and plays golf . . . ummm . . . say what now (to be fair, I’m not sure when the last time was that Nathan played golf).

So, I think that should change this year! If you are a husband reading this, give your wife, the mother of your children a solid three hours on Mother’s Day to do whatever she wants. If it’s me, after those three hours I will be good, and ready to start that garden and go for that walk. But husbands! Start by making your wife some of these delicious Mother’s Day recipes! ….. after you’ve let her sleep in. ;)

Brunch Cocktails

Brunch just isn’t brunch without a crisp, colorful cocktail! Make these gorgeous and delicious drinks for your Mother’s Day meal and you’ll have a happy woman on your hands!
