Let’s start by giving you a big pat on the back for finding us! We know how important mothers are to the fabric of family life, and like you, we’re prepared to go to the ends of the earth to say, “We LOVE you, Mom!” 

Whether you’re a mom looking to honour your own mother, or a kid, spouse, or anyone else looking to make the day special, preparing one or more of our MOTHER’S DAY RECIPES is sure to strike the right tone. Mom is going to love both you and the food!

25 of our Best Mother's Day Recipes!

From breakfast-in-bed and brunch ideas to appetizers, salads and mains, plus a section on desserts, we’ve got your Mother’s Day Recipes covered.

Now, one very important request to our followers under the age of 16: please ask an older sibling or adult to supervise you in making these recipes. They’ll be able to help with cutting, slicing and stovetop steps.

You can scroll through the entire list or click the group heading to jump to a particular section of interest:

BREAKFAST-IN-BED – Here are a couple of easy recipes you can serve Mom while she’s still in bed. Make lots of noise in the kitchen while you make them, she’ll love that!

BRUNCH – These are a few favourite ideas if you’re planning to create a morning meal to honour mom, but the whole family is invited. Get your siblings, dad or other mom to help. We know they love when you ask for help.

APPETIZERS – When you just want to host a more casual get-together with some friends, aunts, uncles or neighbours coming over, make two or three of these recipes and you’re all set.

SALADS – Know how Mom’s always saying you have to eat your vegetables? Time for payback! Make her one of our delectable salads.

MAIN COURSES – Nothing fancy, but trust us, everything in this section is delicious!

DESSERTS – We know preparing delicious food for those we love isn’t always easy. If you’re a little nervous, just make one thing from this list. One bite and Mom is going to hug you because you’re so sweet!

We know these recipes will be ones mom asks you to make again and again (she’s smart that way, we know), so best to keep them at the ready. Make sure to PIN the recipes on a favourite Pinterest board and SHARE it with friends. We’d also appreciate seeing pics when you make them. Use #weekendatthecottage when you post on Facebook and Instagram. Thanks for sharing with the world!
