21 Mother's Day Recipes

Whether someone is cooking for you, you’re treating yourself or making light bites for some mama friends, these 21 Mother's Day Recipes will give you lots of inspiration here.

I’m hoping the second you saw the title of this post you immediately forwarded it to your significant other to remind them you’re not cooking! On the other hand, if your mother is coming over, hopefully it will give you tons of mouthwatering recipe ideas you can make to celebrate mother’s day with her. These 21 Mother’s Day Recipes will keep all the ladies in your life glowing, filling everyone’s bellies with happiness, while also being simple to whip up.

I love being surprised in bed by the kids with a tray full of delicious bites on Mother's Day. Every time is something different, but over the years some of the inspiration for a few of these recipes came from the kids and their creations on holidays like Mother’s Day. A few of my personal faves are the Avocado Toast (I will never get bored of it), Heart Parfaits and Waffle French Toast, but I’m honestly an equal opportunist for all.  Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there who are always doing for others!
