It’s almost Mother's Day, and what better way to show Mom your love than to make her something delicious?  Check out the following recipe ideas.  They’re tasty, and most of all—easy!

Breakfast

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

  1. Make pancake batter using boxed pancake mix, following the directions on the box to make six pancakes.
  2. Make cinnamon roll filling by combining 4 tablespoons melted butter (melted in the microwave for around 20-30 seconds), ½ cup brown sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a bowl.  Whisk until mixed together.
  3. Make cinnamon roll glaze by melting 3 tablespoons butter and 2 ounces cream cheese together in the microwave. Stir in ¾ cup powdered sugar and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract until everything is mixed together.
  4. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium heat, greasing the pan with a little butter or cooking spray.  Scoop about ¼ cup of batter onto the pan and when bubbles form, drizzle the filling onto each pancake in a circular motion with a spoon.  Then flip and cook another minute or so.
  5. Drizzle with glaze and enjoy!

Lunch

Finger Sandwiches & Tea

  1. Make the sandwich fillings.  Use your creativity!  What sandwiches does Mom like?  Jam?  Chicken salad?  Egg salad?  Turkey?  Tomato?  Tuna fish?  Pick two or three kinds what she’d like.
  2. Make sandwiches.  Spread the fillings on sliced bread that your mom likes and make regular sandwiches.  Does she love white? Wheat? Rye?  Make two to three sandwiches with each type of filling.
  3. Cut the sandwiches into triangles.  First, cut off all of the crusts.  Then, cut an X into each sandwich to make four triangular finger sandwiches.  Voila! 
  4. Put them on a pretty plate and pour mom’s favorite tea to celebrate Mother’s Day British-style!
